WAR WIDOW brings the same elements that so enthralled readers in Blood Scion—the magic and world building of Kingdom of Souls and Children of Blood & Bone, the high militaristic stakes of An Ember in the Ashes, and the intense personal and familial drama of Daughter of Smoke and Bone but takes them to a completely new level, with the fate of Sloane’s entire world in balance, and the simmering threat of all out war edging into an inferno.
Blood Scion received a plethora of early and on publication praise from bestselling authors and trade reviews, with bestselling authors Stephanie Garber (Caraval), Roseanna A. Brown (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin), J. Elle (Wings of Ebony), and Kat Cho (Wicked Fox) calling it “explosive,” “a triumph of a book,” “an unflinching masterpiece,” and “a thrilling debut.”
