Summary
  • "As the dystopian trilogy that began with Gilded Cage and Tarnished City concludes, the people of Britain rise up against their magically gifted masters. They must break the system--or be broken. MAGIC RUINS. WE RISE. The rules are simple, the system cruel: the lower classes must give ten years in service to Britain's powerfully gifted rulers. With one uprising crushed by the glittering elite, commoners and aristocrats alike now take sides for a final confrontation. At the center of it all are two ordinary siblings: Abi Hadley and her brother, Luke. Each has reason to hate the ruling Jardine family. Abi was once their servant--and now seeks revenge for a terrible wrong. Luke was imprisoned on their whim but his only hope may be an alliance with the youngest and most powerful of the clan, the cold and inscrutable Silyen Jardine. Staking everything to end a bright and shining tyranny, Abi, Luke, and Silyen find themselves bound by a single destiny. Their actions will change their fates and change everything. But at a cost almost too terrible to contemplate. What price would you pay for freedom? Praise for Vic James's Gilded Cage "Exquisitely wicked. a lavishly opulent, yet brutally vivid, alternate England which subtly questions modern beliefs. If ever there was a speculative fiction book that captured the zeitgeist of an era this is it." SFFWorld "Compelling and fascinating. [an] outstanding fantasy debut." Bookreporter "A great book to start your new series obsession. for those who can barely get enough of the British dramas like Downton Abbey or the magical worlds of J.K. Rowling."BookPage Tarnished City "Highly recommended. There's an admirable level of world-building. with real moments of empathy and compassion [and] a true nail-biter of a cliffhanger ending."--Fantasy Literature "Multifaceted complexity. lively, determined characters."--Publishers Weekly"--
  • "Magically gifted aristocrats rule--and commoners are doomed to serve. But a rebellion threatens the old order. The dystopian trilogy that began with Gilded Cage and Tarnished City concludes. In a world where the lower classes must endure ten years of forced service to unfairly advantaged, magically powered rulers, a teenage boy dreams of rebellion, his older sister yearns for love and knowledge, and a dangerous young aristocrat seeks to remake the world with his dark gifts. In Bright Ruin, the final book in the trilogy set in modern-day England, our heroes will lead a revolution that will transform--or destroy--the world"--
