About the Author
Heidi Heilig grew up in Hawaii where she rode horses and raised peacocks, and then she moved to New York City and grew up even more, as one tends to do. Her favorite thing, outside of writing, is travel, and she has haggled for rugs in Morocco, hiked the trails of the Ko'olau Valley, and huddled in a tent in Africa while lions roared in the dark. She holds an MFA from New York University in musical theater writing, of all things, and she's written books and lyrics for shows including The Time Travelers Convention, Under Construction, and The Hole. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, her son and their pet snake.

I remember the one complaint I had about the first book is that I was convinced to buy it because it featured a trans character, as I'm always eager for diversity and LGBT rep, but that the character had a very minor role and the fact that she was trans was so vaguely alluded to that I had to google to figure out which character she was. In the second book Tia has a more prominent role, and the main character's attraction to other girls was also noted, when it completely went over my head in the first book. The more obvious rep was nice to see this time around!
My favorite thing in this book was the relationships between the characters. There was a major romance I did NOT see coming (and it was my favorite!), but the focus is still on the war. No one (except maybe Cheeky, who has a one-track mind) was paying more attention to matters of the heart than matters of state, which I loved because it's more realistic than everyone swooning over each other in the middle of serious situations.
I would recommend this series to anyone tired of common romance tropes while still thirsting for a well-told love story, interested in dramatic war fiction, and into necromancy. Can't wait for the final book in this trilogy!
