From Publishers Weekly
Johnson returns to the fascinating island world of 2007's Racing the Dark, where blood sacrifice can gain the favor of powerful spirits. Lana is no longer a simple island girl but a Black Angel, marked with black wings by the wind spirit. Now living amid the refugees and ruins of capital city Essel, devastated by volcanic eruption, Lana seeks her mother, who has been kidnapped by the witch Akua. Her only clue is a strange black book given to her by one of Akua's spirits. Meanwhile, Essel roils with rebellion led by a religious fringe movement that wants to bring down the ruler, the Mo'i. Many think the Mo'i has lost control of Nui'ahi's fire spirit, but Lana fears the Mo'i caused the eruption himself. Events in Essel are interwoven with those recorded long ago in Akua's black book, creating an absorbing, complex plot.

It's a great read - multiple narratives, weird magic, sympathetic witches and other villains, rich backstory, dire consequences.--Nisi Shawl "Acqueduct Press "

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
here's the trouble though: there are no more books in this series, and after finishing this one, we're left never knowing the end of the story because the writer has decided not to finish the series (or at least has no plans to do so). I find that frustrating. I did go into this series knowing there wasn't an end (or rather I discovered it halfway through the first book), but I can't really give this series more than 3 stars, however well done, if we're never going to know the end of the story.
I've found myself appreciating the depth of the characters in this series, the way loss and dificulty have profound impacts on people and shape their lives and decisions. The cast is diverse and creative. The magic system is also exceedingly interesting, if sometimes the cause of exposition that can be repetitious if you've read the first book.
