<strong>Critically acclaimed author Nina Varela delivers a stunning sequel to the richly imagined queer epic fantasy <em>Crier’s War</em>, which <em>SLJ</em> called “perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas’s Throne of Glass.”</strong>
For too long, Automae have lorded over the kingdom of Rabu, oppressing its human citizens. But the human revolution has risen, and at its heart is Ayla. Once a handmaiden, now a fugitive, Ayla narrowly escaped the palace of Lady Crier, the girl she would’ve killed <em>if</em> she hadn’t fallen in love first.
Now Ayla has pledged her allegiance to Queen Junn, who can help accomplish the human rebellion’s ultimate goal: destroy the Iron Heart. Without its power, the Automae will be weakened to the point of extinction. Ayla wants to succeed, but can’t shake the strong feelings she’s developed for Crier. And unbeknownst to her, Crier has also fled the palace, taking up among traveling rebels, determined to find and protect Ayla.
Even as their paths collide, nothing can prepare them for the dark secret underlying the Iron Heart.

As with Crier's War, the relationship between Ayla and Crier is the lifeblood of the book, the heartbeat. Valera is a master of writing romance, and I felt myself unable to put the book down quite often.
My only gripe here is that the ending perhaps felt a little rushed, a little anticlimactic. Still, it is but one blemish on a book I have come to adore. Very much recommended.
I also really loved how the plot line with Yoras heart continued in this book and while I felt a certain detail at the end seemed almost too convenient it was overall a plot I loved that involved a lot of new and interesting characters to get invested in
