The Bone Shard Daughter was hailed as "one of the best debut fantasy novels of the year," (BuzzFeed News), an "amazing start to a new trilogy," (Culturess), and a "richly told, emotional, action-laced debut," (Library Journal, starred). Now, Andrea Stewart returns with The Bone Shard Emperor, the second installment of this unmissable, action-packed, magic-laced fantasy epic.
The Emperor is Dead. Long live the Emperor.

But can she trust them?
