In this stunning sequel to The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, one blind woman will challenge the will of the gods and change the fate of the world.
In the city of Shadow, beneath the World Tree, alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind. Oree Shoth, a blind artist, takes in a strange homeless man on an impulse. This act of kindness engulfs Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. Someone, somehow, is murdering godlings, leaving their desecrated bodies all over the city. And Oree's guest is at the heart of it. . .

While I enjoyed it, this lacked the punch of the first book in the trilogy. The world was still enjoyable but the characters just didn’t do it for me. Read full review

User Review  - Traciinaz - LibraryThing

I enjoyed the second book as much as the first. This is the first time in a long time that I'm finishing one book and immediately moving onto the next in the series. I usually take a little break and go back to the next book a little later. Read full review
