Publisher's Summary

How far is too far when it comes to love?

In a matter of moments, everything Taly ever thought she knew came crashing down around her. Her mother's spells were broken, her powers unleashed. She's no longer mortal but fey, and every day serves as a reminder that her entire life has been a lie.

To make matters worse, Taly has been captured and imprisoned by a woman claiming to be the Time Queen. Her only way home is to play the queen's game and train in the art of time magic. The queen has commanded that she become an Acolyte - a task that could take years to complete.

Meanwhile, Skye is left as the last line of defense to protect Tempris from an invading horde of walking dead. He still doesn't have a name or a face to put to his enemy, and there are traitors inside the city. Everyone keeps saying that Taly is dead, but he can't accept it. He won't. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back - even if it costs him everything.

A renegade queen, forbidden magic, and a love that reaches across time and space - Taly and Skye will be tested, their loyalties pushed to the point of breaking, as war looms on the horizon.

Contains mature themes.

Must read for SJM fans

Honestly I don’t understand how this book isn’t flying off the shelves and spreading like wildfire. This is honestly the best series to come out in years. I have struggled to find a story I’ve attached to as much as Throne of Glass or A Court of Thorns and Roses. But Tempris just ticks every single box for me honestly. Stephanie Fisher does not get enough credit in my opinion. You’ve got fae, you’ve got world building galore, magic, romance, it’s just amazing and I just can’t wait to see what happens in this series. Absolutely amazing. Can’t say enough good things. Just do yourself a favor and buy this book please.

NEED BOOK 3!!!

Haven't found a book this good in awhile. The narrator is honestly one of the best. She does an amazing job. She truly makes these characters come to life. And all the characters are special in one way or another. If you love fantasy, romance, suspense, great character building and amazing world building. You have to listen to this series

Need Book 3!

This series is just what I needed after multiple listens of all SJM series — cannot wait for Book 3 and really hope same narrator is used. As another reviewer says, this book has it all — fae, magic, other worlds, and a steamy romance.

WOW! I am HOOKED

This book just gets better and better! I have purchased over 60 books on audible and this has to be my favorite performance by Stephanie fisher and possibly any narrator, she completed crushes the characters and accents and snappy remarks and personalities- I’m obsessed and the story is so intriguing and well thought out that it resembles the best of Doctor Who plots- the ones where your jaw is dropped because somehow the authors managed to give you time travel out of order while still having you understand what’s happening and dying to know how it plays out! Stephanie Fisher is a god and this book is getting me through a really difficult injury and recovery, and just life in general! Thank you! I hope there are many more books and that book 3 isn’t the end!

Enjoyed, will keep reading series

I liked this book as much as the first. Again very similar in build throughout this book as with Shardless with a few parts being a little slow. There is romance, action, and world building where everything is explained in time…;) Would definitely read if you liked the first book. It ends on a cliffhanger but builds toward the next installment so you are not left heartbroken. The narration was still great!

Waiting not so patiently

I love these books and can’t wait for the next book to come out. Please finish writing the next book Stephanie Fisher I have listened to this series 5 times now.
My favourite character has to be the Queen she makes me laugh, followed by Kato.

As always, Elizabeth Evans never disappoints in her narration 😀

Twist right at the end... Speechless...

I'm going to gush about this without spoiling it. The author plots a beautifully hidden twist at the end. I was transfixed throughout the entire book. The characters, even the ones you're not sure of, reveal an agenda and it ties at the end which will leave you wanting the next book ASAP. How is this author not on every best seller list?! if you are a fan of SMJ books, you need to listen to these books! and the narrator, ohh *swoon*

Not as good as the first

While I still enjoyed this book, it was not as gripping as the first one. There was a lot less action and a lot more info dumping which dragged sometimes. I am still looking forward to the next, however.
