Publisher's Summary

Times are truly desperate within Averalaan's hundred holdings, and Jewel MArkess and her den are finding it hard to survive. Then suddenly their mentor, Rath, orders them to avoid the ancient Undercity beneath Averlaan's streets, cutting them off from their main source of income. Yet Rath himself refuses to heed the warnings of Jewel's seer dreams. Instead, he allies with the mages of the Order of Knowledge in a secret war against demonic foes, knowing he'll be targeted for death - or worse. In a last attempt to protect Jewel and her den, he writes a note of introduction to the head of House Terafin - the sister he's sworn never to contact. For only within the Terafin manse would the den stand a chance of escaping the unnatural forces reaching out to claim them....

A powerful story about choices and facing grief.

This second book focuses on grief, choices, and most of all hope. It tells the story of how Jewel came to leave the holdings. It explains​ what she lost along the way and helps to explain how those loses shaped the woman she will become. Most of all though it explored the different ways we all grieve and how that grief manifests in others. Allowing each character to express their loss without condemning it, but allowing us each to accept it and recognize it for what it is. A powerful example of acceptance and understanding in any world, even one darkened by the shadows of demons walking the street.

City of Night

I am hooked by this series and find myself looking for the next one. There is a Sun Sword Series which happens between books 4 and 5 and Audible does not carry these. So when you get there you are not missing a book just keep going!
