Publisher's Summary

Revolutionary flames ignite around Annie, Lee, and a brand-new character in the follow-up to Fireborne.

After fleeing the revolution and settling into the craggy cliffs of New Pythos, the dragonlords are eager to punish their usurpers and reclaim their city. Their first order of business was destroying the Callipolan food supply. Now they're coming for the dragonriders.

Annie is Callipolis' new Firstrider, charged with leading the war against New Pythos. But with unrest at home, enforcing the government's rationing program risks turning her into public enemy number one.

Lee struggles to find his place after killing kin for a leader who betrayed him. He can support Annie and the other Guardians...or join the rebels who look to topple the new regime.

Griff, a lowborn dragonrider who serves New Pythos, knows he has no future. And now that Julia Stormscourge is no longer there to protect him, he is called on to sacrifice everything for the lords that oppress his people - or to forge a new path with the Callipolan Firstrider seeking his help.

With famine tearing Callipolis apart and the Pythians determined to take back what they lost, it will be up to Annie, Lee, and Griff to decide who - and what - to fight for.

Critic Reviews

“Munda balances nuanced political intrigue and subtle characterizations with thrilling scenes of battle and heartbreaking moments of love and sacrifice...this volume will leave readers breathless for more.” (Booklist, starred review)

"Much like its predecessor, this second book in the Aurelian Cycle trilogy finds its strength in complex, compelling characters and thought-provoking socio-political intrigue. Amid the politics there are plenty of dragon battles, clandestine missions, and secret meetings to keep readers flying through the pages, ending with a nail-biting cliffhanger. Highly recommended for middle and high school readers." (School Library Journal, starred review)

“Point-of-view chapters show complexities, provoking readers to think. In addition to the central will-they, won’t-they love story, there is a lovely subplot with a same-sex, cross-class romance. Exciting aerial battles, political machinations, and a bit of romance make this hard for readers to put down.” (Kirkus

Great sequel!

Sometimes the second book in a series is not very good, but not this one. I loved the first book Fireborn, and I loved this book too! The narrators are great!

Omg!

This was a find at Barnes and Noble. I didn’t know it was part of a series. I went to Amazon and bought the first book. So so worth it. This book kept me listening and wanting more. And that Jaw dropping conclusion? Please get me the next book NOW! Five stars and so so worth it.

PLEASE release Book 3!

Excellent storylines & characters! My only regret is that I did not wait to start these, until the 3rd was released.

Second book is disappointing

The first book was great. Full of action the story moved quickly. The second book unfortunately devolved into a woke mess

Great book

So much better then the first. The story just grabs you by the dragon saddle and you don’t want to let go.

Awful Awful Awful!!! I can't unhear!!

Garbage that I don't want to hear! will not buy another book from this author. returning this one if I can. very disappointed.

The story is predictable with feminist themes and heavy LGBT romance lines. This comming from a woman who like female hero stories. This just seems like a virtue signaling book that will get accolades just because Its so progressive.

I'm changing my review of the first book too so people don't get roped into this garbage.

HOLY CRAP

I get easily annoyed during audio books when the readers try to change their voices to depict different characters, but with this reading they had three readers for the different characters. It added to the story-line and engaged me as a listener. The story was everything I was hoping for after the first Aurelian Cycle book. Can't wait for book 3!

Amazing Plotting, Tough Choices, Great Characters

I am not even done with this book, but I absolutely LOVE IT, and can't help but feel that it is criminally under-read, judging from the numbers of reviews. My favorite part of this book is Annie. I love how she's always willing to make the tough choice and put others first, even if it earns her zero credit. I wanted to shake Lee, because I hated how naïve he was about joining a rebellion, and how unwilling he was to protect his home and do what was required. There are so many moments of moral greyness, and a LOT more action than Book 1, to me makes this one of the first YA books of 2021 that I have not DNF'd.

Great stuff!!
