Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Renata was only a child when she was kidnapped by the King's Justice and brought to the luxurious palace of Andalucía. As a memory thief, the rarest and most feared of the magical Moria, Renata was used by the crown to carry out the King's Wrath, a siege that resulted in the deaths of thousands of her own people. Now Renata is one of the Whispers, rebel spies working against the crown. The Whispers may have rescued Renata years ago, but she cannot escape their mistrust and hatred--or the overpowering memories of the hundreds of souls she drained during her time in the palace. When Dez, the commander of her unit--and the boy she's grown to love--is taken captive by the notorious Príncipe Dorado, Renata must return to Andalucía and complete Dez's top secret mission herself. Can she keep her cover, even as she burns for vengeance against the brutal, enigmatic prince? Her life and the fate of the Moria depend on it. But returning to the palace stirs childhood memories long locked away. As Renata grows more deeply embedded in the politics of the royal court, she uncovers a secret in her past that could change the fate of the entire kingdom--and end the war that has cost her everything."--Jacket.

    Renata is a Robari, a memory thief, cursed and feared by all, including her own magic-wielding people, the Moria. Abducted from her parents at a young age, she is forced to work for the King's Justice until the Moria rescue her. When Dez, the commander of her rebel unit, is captured, she naturally decides to avenge him by going back into the belly of the beast, becoming a member of the palace once again and completing the mission that Dez could not. Hand this dark and twisting fantasy to readers who love subterfuge in a royal court or a heroine who, like Graceling's Katsa, chooses to fight for a side that doesn't necessarily want her. Because the story is loosely inspired by the Spanish Inquisition, many of the names of people and places in this world are Spanish. This historical allusion blends a bit of familiarity with the magic, drawing readers right into the adventure. Incendiary serves up a satisfying plate of revenge garnished with secrets and surprises along the way. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
