Four destinies collide in a unique fantasy world of war and wonders, where empire is won with enchanted steel and magical animal companions fight alongside their masters in battle. A band of rogues and royals should all be enemies, but unite for a common purpose: to defeat an unstoppable killer who defies the laws of magic. In this battle, they will forge unexpected bonds of friendship and love that will change their lives--and begin to change the world.

*Starred Review* In a fantasy world influenced by Imperial Japan, China and the Philippines in the 1940s, and the culture and media of South Asia, the use of magic is divided into three branches: steelpacting, the manipulation of metal common to the formerly dominant power of Tomonda; shadepacting, a bonding with the souls of animals common to the newly liberated Empire of Shang and the Sanbu Republic; and the inward-focused healing and hexing powers of the country of Dahal. Four characters pass through the flux created by the overthrow of the Tomodan Empire. Jimuro is the highly sought-after heir to the Tomodan throne, and his reluctant bodyguard Tala is a Sanbunan sergeant whose violation of the laws of shadepacting have come back to haunt her. Two of their pursuers are the pipe-smoking Shang Princess Xiulan, currently in disguise as a detective, and her partner, the Jeongsonese thief Lee, whose natural instinct to look out for herself is at war with her developing feelings for the princess. With a well-realized world and strong characters, many of whom are queer, Krueger's novel will feel as fast-paced and exciting as its animated influences and leave the reader longing for more. Highly recommended for any fantasy fan. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
