An amazing follow up to Amanda Downum's first novel, Drowning City. Once again, Ms. Downum features a strong female protagonist- the necromancer and spy Isyllt- unraveling a twisted plot for the overthrow of her kingdom in a world full of mystery, magic, espionage and adventure. This is definitely one of the best books of 2011 for its challenge to traditional gender roles, its fresh take on necromancy and hemalurgy, and its fast-paced enthralling plot.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "In a spectacular freestanding sequel to 2009's The Drowning City, Downum jumps a few years forward to find forensic necromancer Isyllt Iskaldur investigating the death of Forsythia, a young prostitute with stolen royal jewelry sewn into her clothes, in the haunted city of Erisin. As Isyllt follows the trail of death and theft to the sewers and their vampiric inhabitants, Savedra Severos, the crown prince's beautiful transgender mistress, struggles to defeat assassins and unravel plots involving her own uncle and a demonic sorceress mysteriously allied with Isyllt's mentor and former lover, the spymaster Kiril. Finely drawn characters love and betray with enthralling passion and pain, and the taverns and gardens of plague-ridden Erisin and the titular ruined palace at its center make a dark and richly detailed background for this complex and bloody tale of sorcery, madness, and intrigue. (Dec.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
"Synopsis" by , In this sequel to Downum's acclaimed debut, "The Drowning City," Isylit mustonce again draw on her necromancy to save her kingdom. Original.
