Publisher's Summary

From the national best-selling author of Jeweled Fire.
In the latest novel in Sharon Shinn's Elemental Blessings series, a woman is confronted with the past she left behind - and an uncertain future.
Leah Frothen has returned home to rebuild the life she's avoided for years. But she can scarcely catch her breath before she is summoned to meet with the regent, Darien Serlast, the man who made her a spy. Leah is reluctant to take on a new assignment, but Darien has dangled the perfect lure to draw her in.
Leah finds she enjoys the challenges of opening a shop catering to foreign visitors, especially since it affords her the opportunity to get to know Mally, the child she abandoned five years ago. Leah is simultaneously thrilled, terrified, hopeful, moved, and almost undone as she slowly attempts to become part of her daughter's life.
But when the regent asks her to spy on ambassadors from a visiting nation, she develops a dangerous friendship with a foreign woman and finds herself falling in love with a man from her past. Soon Leah learns that everyone - her regent, her lover, and even her daughter - has secrets that could save the nation, but might very well break her heart.

Another Great Book

I have been following Sharon Shinn since the first Angel novel. She never fails to write an enjoyable, thoughtful and interesting story. I become attached to her characters and feel like I know them. Her women use their power for the good of all. They are courageous and learn from their mistakes. Jennifer Van Dyck's narration is the icing on the cake. The elemental blessings series meets her high standards and I can't wait for the next one in the series.

I can't wait to read the next book in the elemental series. Maybe more adventures with Leah and Chandrin.
