The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal.

Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow.


"This brought to mind other talented and brilliant authors who not only create strange new worlds, but go the extra mile to populate them and fill them out with imaginative flourish. As a science fiction fan, I found this book fulfilling; as an avid reader of all genres, I was equally pleased." –J.D. Hart, Reading and Literature Resources

"The incredible worldbuilding of the first installment continues with this novel, and the characters become ever more lovable and one can’t help but root for them and their success." –Leah, Small Queer, Big Opinions

"Would be really stupid to not read the third installment since I've come this far." –Shelley, Gizmo’s Reviews

"[R]eaders of the genre will really enjoy this addition to this fantasy series by Erica Cameron, which presents a sprawling, diverse world with complex issues and a wealth of magical power. Readers will be ensnared by the scope of the world Cameron is creating, but also by the depth of the characters, and the humanity behind their struggles." –Alanna, One Page at a Time

"I previously read and reviewed Island Of Exiles and loved it, so I had high hopes for this one. And it did not disappoint." –Amber Rose, Rose Reviews

"The entire world and the world building is seriously some of the best I've seen out of dystopian/fantasy books." –Lacy, A Ravenclaw Library

“This rare gem of a book has a lot to offer readers, including magic, action, and intrigue on the edge of a knife.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review of Island of Exiles

“Harrowing and heartfelt…Crackles with harsh magic and gripping suspense.” —A.R. Kahler, author of The Immortal Circus series, on Island of Exiles

"A remarkable achievement: a fantasy world so richly imagined, so finely detailed, and so strikingly original, even the most incredible elements feel totally real." Joshua David Bellin, author of the Survival Colony series, on Island of Exiles

"I was consumed by the savage mysteries of Cameron's harsh and haunting fantasy world. A story of love and loss as searing as the desert heat." Diana Peterfreund, author of For Darkness Shows the Stars, on Island of Exiles

"A beautifully wrought fantasy filled with magic, rebellion, and romance, plus a strong, butt-kicking heroine to root for!" Lea Nolan, USA Today Bestselling author of Conjure, Allure, and Illusion, on Island of Exiles

"Everything I've been looking for in a fantasy--powerful characters, magical powers that make me itch with envy, and a spoken language that is as intrinsic to the story as it is beautiful." Amber Lough, author of The Fire Wish and The Blind Wish, on Island of Exiles

"Imaginative, bold, and as electrifying as a Shiara storm." Lori Lee, author of Gates of Thread and Stone and The Infinite, on Island of Exiles
