Publisher Comments:

This sequel to Green and Endurance takes Green back to the city of Kalimpura and the service of the Lily Goddess. 

Green is hounded by the gods of Copper Downs and the gods of Kalimpura, who have laid claim to her and her children. She never wanted to be a conduit for the supernatural, but when she killed the Immortal Duke and created the Ox god with the power she released, she came to their notice.

Now she has sworn to retrieve the two girls taken hostage by the Bittern Court, one of Kalimpura's rival guilds. But the Temple of the Lily Goddess is playing politics with her life.

Review:

"In this introspective sequel to Green and Endurance, Lake continues the tale of Green, a former courtesan and assassin now attempting to settle down following the birth of her twins. Unfinished business and old enemies take Green and her allies back to the city of Kalimpura, where she must keep a low profile while trying to find two kidnapped girls. However, discretion is difficult with multiple gods taking interest in her doings and several factions out for her blood. There's something both uplifting and melancholy in this fantasy adventure's tone, which 16-year-old Green narrates with a world-weary old soul's experience, emotional weight hanging from every page. Thoughtful fantasy readers will appreciate Green's newfound perspective and the lush details derived from a mixture of Eastern cultures, as well as the sheer audacity of a killer bisexual nonwhite teen mom protagonist. The pace drags occasionally, but it's worth it in the long run. Agent: Jennifer Jackson, Donald Maass Literary Agency. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

“Green lives in a remarkable world, in which gods walk the earth, and not all people are human. Lake's world-building is stellar.” Booklist
