by Tamara Rose Blodgett
The degradation of Queen Clara’s sphere continues without apparent end. She must ask for assistance from the neighboring Kingdom of Kentucky to combat the demise of their way of life. However, the alliance isn’t as strong without the promise of marriage, which in the past stood to unite the spheres.
Tensions run high, the ruination of additional spheres an imminent threat, causing strife and conflict. When Clara is seen as a pawn in a greater scheme and change of leadership, the Travelers interfere in an unforeseen way.
When two different groups of Travelers’ objectives collide, a cataclysmic event ends in a scenario of unprecedented upheaval and resolution. Can Clara and the Band save the sphere and in so doing the people of the future? Will Clara find the peace and love she deserves?

This book was fantastic! I loved every minute of it. I read it in one day that I set aside just for it.
The courtship antics were toned down, much to my relief, leaving room for more adventure. There were less damsels in distress, which really did annoy me. Don’t get me wrong, Clara did find herself in a lot of trouble but she found herself rescued in new and interesting ways.
“Two different groups of Travelers’ objectives collide.” That’s when the book gets really interesting. My mind really boggled at what exactly was going on. I had a hard time grasping exactly what was going on but when I did understand it I loved it! I won’t say what went on for fear of spoiling it too much because that’s what I loved about the book the most.
The introduction of Calia who is a headstrong warrior female is another thing I loved about the book. Blodgett shows, once again, that there can be women in that world that can be both independent and strong. It’s a nice contrast to the more delicate females more prevalent in the series.
This is by far the best Savage book so far in the series. I eagerly await the next installment which should be out in September.
