Whisper Silksinger is no warrior - she's a weaver of flying carpets. But when devils attack her isolated island home, she must flee alone with nothing but a copper tea kettle and the ember that smolders inside it. The ember - her secret and her burden - is none other than the Azazel, one of the seven Djinn who made the world, and it falls to Whisper to keep him safe.
Pursued by devils, she joins a dragonfly caravan and meets Hirik, a mysterious faerie mercenary with an ancient sword and a secret of his own.
All the while, Magpie Windwitch, the Djinn King's champion, is on their trail, intent on finding Whisper before the devils do. It's a desperate quest, because if the Azazel should die, the Tapestry of Creation shall fail, and all life with it.
Discover an exotic world of secrets and spice, fortune-tellers, hobgoblins, mercenaries, and devils. Whisper and Hirik are intriguing new characters whose unexpected magic will play an important role in the battles to come, as new foes rise and the devil armies of the Dawn Days are unleashed once more.
If you've read my review of Dreamdark: Blackbringer, which you can find here, you'll know that I'm absolutely in love with this brand new series. I'm so excited for the next installment in Magpie Windwitch's adventures. They've been great so far, and I'm sure they will continue to be just as good, if not better.
