Summary of the Book:
In Canto, magic is a commodity, outlawed by the elites after losing a devastating war and brokered by smugglers on the hidden market. But some know it’s more—a weapon for change.
Inez Garza moves through two worlds. She’s a member of the noble class who works as a magical arms dealer—a fact either group would gladly use against her. Neither know her true purpose—funding Birthright, an underground group determined to return magic to all at any cost.
But the discovery of a powerful relic from before the Rending threatens her delicate balance.
Inez’s inherent magic, which lies dormant in all the Canti, has been awakened. Now the Duchess’s daughter, radical and smuggler must assume another forbidden title—mage, a capital crime. This will bring her to the attention of factions at home—fanatical rebels bent on revolution, a royal family determined to avoid another magical war, her mercenary colleagues at the hidden market willing to sell her abilities to the highest bidder—and in Mythos, victors of the war and architects of the Rending.
Evasion has become Inez’s specialty, but even she isn’t skilled enough to hide from everyone—and deny the powers drawing her down a new path.
My Personal Review: I receive a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I got paperback copy of these book from the author and it did take me a little bit to get to the story. I liked the world of Canto. I did enjoy there was a map in the book and lists of the characters and their roles. It gave me a heads up when they were introduced in the book. Inez lives in to worlds that she not touch but do and knows that if either found out it would be living nightmare. I do what to know what is going to come next in the story.
My Rating of the Book: 3 1/2 Stars
