About The Book
Rue has no memory of how she ended up locked in a basement prison without her magic or her allies. But she’s a girl from East Row. And girls from East Row don’t give up. Girls from East Row pick themselves back up when they fall. Girls from East Row break themselves out.
But getting free and finding her friends is only half the battle. Rue vows that when she reunites with them, she will find a way to return the magic that the Chancellor has stolen from her father’s people. Yet even on Yiyo Peak, Rue is a misfit; with half a foot back in Houston and a heart that is half human, half god, she’s not sure she’s the right person to lead the fight to reclaim a glorious past.
When a betrayal sends her into a tailspin, Rue must decide who to trust and how to be the leader that her people deserve, because if she doesn’t, it isn’t just Yiyo that will be destroyed—it will be Rue herself.

Raves and Reviews
"In the closing of this duology, Bahni Turpin brings this story to life by embodying specific characters and masterfully representing the cultural spaces with great precision through characters who are from vastly different worlds. This YA fantasy is the story of Rue, a powerful teen who escapes imprisonment and fights to return magic to her kinfolk, the Ghizoni people. Turpin brings out Rue’s American accent while simultaneously connecting her to people from a faraway land — Ghizon. The tone of the story is dramatic, with nonstop adventure. There are numerous moments of warmth, especially when Turpin narrates the love triangle in Rue’s life or moments of loss. But the high energy in Turpin’s voice is unmistakably exciting."
