I love that this is a mystery unfolding as we read and will delve more into the fall-out of what happens when someone becomes a "hero". I also love the flashback; learning about the other characters on the quest and the events that lead up to the destruction of the Old God. This book is about what happens after a #Quest is over. What happens to the squad that saved the world? Some become queens, other become knights, others are irreparably damaged, and some... go back to being the thieves they were before. This is the story about Olsa and Kalanthe, the thief and the almost-knight, after they return from the world-saving quest. I really enjoyed it and thought it was well written, paced and characters weren't annoyingly transparent. I definitely recommend reading it!
