Review by Booklist Reviews

Sev, like her mother before her, is caught in suspended sleep and is at the mercy of corrupt Dr. Yang, but the search for the Sleeping Sickness cure goes on through Sev's allies. Nothing is simple: Tai-ge's search is hampered by his militaristic mother's love of power; Howl and June are fighting the effects of gore bites that are normally fatal; and the whole country's future hangs in the balance. This concluding installment in the Last Star Burning Trilogy, following Shatter the Suns (2018), is as sweeping as its precursors, and readers will be well served to experience them in order. Sev is sidelined, and allies June, Tai-ge, and Howl advance the narrative and the tension by voicing alternating chapters—an effective means of controlling the pacing and allowing the epic to unfold. This is a timely way
