In case you haven't read Book 1, For a Muse of Fire: Jetta's family are shadow players, a traveling troupe who are renowned for their puppets that seem to move without string or stick. But the truth is that Jetta is able to see the souls of the recently departed — and bind them to the puppets with her blood, a practice outlawed since their country was conquered by colonizers. Her skill, while secret, is her family's only hope to earn a spot on the ship to Aquitan, where, rumor has it, the Mad King has a spring that cures his ills.
What it's about: In this final installment of Heilig's stunning series, Jetta's home is spiraling into civil war, there's a deadly necromancer who has wrested control of the country, and Jetta's circle is intent on infiltrating the palace.
