This is the third book in the trilogy featuring Mags, and it’s good.
A new religious order comes to the city, and strange things begin to happen. Prominent women begin to get Poison Pen letters, discussing their secrets and saying vile things to insult them and undercut their confidence. Two women’s religious orders have their temples desecrated. Women owned shops are vandalized, night after night.
Mags uses his contacts and goes undercover to discover the source. Amily uses her network in the Court to examine things from her end as well. Could the new religious order be the source of the hateful acts plaguing the city?
Lackey addresses the timely topic of misogyny and troll attacks on women in power and visibility. As always, she tells an entertaining and enjoyable tale of Valdemar with characters we love and a world we’ll always want to visit.
JL Jamieson is a strange book nerd who writes technical documents by day, and book news, reviews, and other assorted opinions for you by night. She is working on her own fiction, and spends time making jewelry to sell at local conventions, as well as stalking the social media accounts of all your favorite writers.
