The Goddess:  In the beginning, there were lovers: a winged deity of power and light, and a queen of grace and beauty. Phoenix was murdered, his beloved stolen away to the Whisper-world. But their passion inspired the Muses. Through great sacrifice, it could live again. 

The Guard:There are always six, mortal hosts for the divine. Battling spirits through the ages, they defy Darkness, Lord of the Dead. In 1867, a shadow rises. The tide turns against them, and all hope falls on a child of prophecy, an eerie, snow-white girl yet to be born. But her path must be cleared. A Great War is coming, and song, wind and stars whisper that the eighteen-year-old Beatrice Smith must give everything to prepare.

Ms. Hieber has done it again. This book is just as wonderful as the other two books this series, although this is sort of a prequel to the other books. You get to find out so many things in this book, so many questions are finally answered, and I know I am going to have to go back and re-read these books just so I can jump back into the world with this fresh new knowledge. Ok, I am going to try and keep the gushing to a minimum but you all know how I get about books I love.

First off this book is not wholey focused on The Guard we already know, this book lets us meet The Guard centered around Ibrahim and Beatrice (from the last book) which is super neat because we get to see a whole new world and whole new interation of The Guard, as well as learn to love these characters even more than we already do. We also get fun facts and learn new things about our old friends from London as well.

There are so many things answered and brought to light in this book, there is no way you can go without reading it if you are a fan of the series. I want to tell you all everything but then you wouldn't need to read it. Just expect some of your burning questions answered. This book also has a totally different flavor then the other book, which is fitting, in my mind. Definitely read it. Just go get it and read it, you won't regret it.
