Magi and Technocrats have been at war for centuries, both believing they’re the ones in the right. That is, until the Technocrates wipe out all the Magi. Or did they? Caught right in the middle of the war are Aissa and Zandria, twins far more powerful than the other Magi believe. When Aissa is assigned a new mission, she’s willing to do anything to accomplish it. It only gets complicated after Zandria is captured and Aissa discovers there is more to her mission then what’s on the surface. Not only that, but everything she’s been told about the war, the Magi, even the Technocrats, may be a lie.
Connolly put effort into the world-building, and it shows. Unfortunately, that makes the pace drag at times. The twins already know magic, so it’s easy to follow how it works. once, the parents aren’t dead. In fact, they’re supportive and love their daughters, but they don’t play much of a role in the story. Some of the plot twists were obvious to me, but that doesn’t mean they are for everyone, except the final twist where there was no warning or foreshadowing, and that felt somewhat abrupt.
