As Imajane and Rubinyan declare themselves rulers after Dunevon and Elsren's demise, they are already doing badly in their office.

Imajane throws Vurquan Nomru , one of the most powerful men of the realm into Kanodang , the prison. The rebellion's first major act is to release Duke Nomru and several others of the rebellion from the prison, knowing that the Rittevons will actually think the luarin nobility were responsible for Nomru's release.

Since her victory with Topabaw, Aly begins to turn their new king and queen against each other, planting evidence that Rubinyan is having an affair with another noblewoman—specifically Lady Edunata.

The raka conspiracy makes its final move when assassins target Dove when the Balitangs are returning home from the Grey Palace. A large kudarung comes to save her—showing that she is the true queen mentioned in the Kyprish Prophecy.

They attack the Grey palace in force at dawn, with Dove flying above them on the kudarung. Imajane commits suicide rather than face the judgment of the new rulers, and the conspiracy is victorious. After Dove has taken control of the Isles, Aly informs them of her parentage, but they don't see it as an issue.

She marries Nawat after being accepted as Dove's new spymaster, and she becomes pregnant. In the epilogue, a large Tortallan delegation with many members of her family come to recognize the new queen, and Aly meets with them in secret. She and her mother bury the hatchet and become friends.

Other characters thank the god for bringing Aly to them in every other chapter, to the point where I really could have stood to see her taken down a peg The only thing that doesn't seem to come easily to Aly is perhaps her romantic pursuits.

Nawat changed his disposition since the last book but since it all happened off page it comes across as forced.

He is absent for most of the book, and while I really like when character's romantic pursuits are not at the forefront of the story, I felt a little robbed of seeing his character growth that I had so looked forward to.

He reappears as a less enjoyable, less original character and we don't even get to find out how he got to that place firsthand. His crow friends also appear less in the story, replaced by jar-jar binks-esque little glob creatures I seriously could have done without.

We were told Aly grew as a character, the same way we're told she was a bit frivolous before the pirate raid, though there is a lot of telling and less showing.

Without Aly's wager with the Trickster the narrative arc just lost it's compass. She is a pillar, an icon, and an inspiration.

Cracking open one of her marvelous novels always feels like coming home. Her heroines cut a swath through the fantasy world with wit, strength, and savvy. Her stories still lead the vanguard today.

When you gamble with kingdoms, all bets are off. Legends are born in this thrilling and New York Times bestselling spy saga from the fantasy author who is legend herself: Tamora Pierce.

Aly is from a family known for great deeds. When Aly is captured by pirates and sold as a slave to an exiled royal family in the faraway Copper Isles, she strikes a bargain with the trickster god.

If she can keep young noblewomen Sarai and Dove safe for the summer, then he will return Aly to her family. The task should be simple, but Sarai and Dove are anything but.Please try again later. Read online and.

The Demands of Rebellion. Many of us might have peered at the impenetrable thicket of traditional fantasy and given up before we even began, if not for her.
