When Malik attempts to do so, he finds that he cannot kill Karina, but his attempt releases Idir from his prison realm. I think this comes with the territory for debut authors and it didn't spoil my enjoyment of the story too much. I wanted to linger over moments of beauty, yes, but I also wanted to linger in pockets of drama, in moments of mystery, in those little scenes where the characters stopped and took a breath to re-evaluate or recenter themselves and their goals.

This story barrels along like a high-speed train, its energy reminiscent of Malik’s fidgeting anxiety or Karina’s frenzied fixation on the increasingly shrinking time she has left to perform her ritual.Anyone who tried to take this city from her would soon discover that the Kestrel’s daughter had talons of her own. On the other side of the city, Karina's mother just died and Karina hopes to bring her back to life with an old magic ritual, but she needs a king's heart to do so.

Karina discovers that Malik (as Adil) is the Life Alignment champion and feels as though he deceived her by not saying anything once he knew who she was. Malik, thinking this may be his opportunity and realizing he can use his illusion powers to essentially make himself invisible, follows shortly after back to the palace. Without knowing it, Karina and Malik are set on a collision path, each determined to kill the other. At the closing ceremony of Solstasia, Farid accuses Karina, who he has subdued, of killing the queen in front of the whole kingdom.These characters feel like they don’t have time to ponder mysteries, but a part of me still kind of wishes that we lingered over certain things, and didn’t rush other scenes just to get to the next interesting plot point.

Regardless of who had her mother killed, none of it will matter if she can manage to bring her back, so she sets about trying to find someone who can help her learn more about magic. Commander Hamidou stays behind, sacrificing herself so that Afua and Karina can escape Ziran with the help of Dedele, who is also loyal to the princess. If they do not reveal which one of them hired the assassin, she will let all of them die (including herself as she has also drunk the tea). But as part of his deal to Idir, Farid has to kill Karina on his behalf, which he doesn’t seem to have any remorse for because he blames the death of Hanane and the king on Karina.Karina has long dreamed of fleeing her oppressive role as the only living heir to the throne of Ziran. Dedele does not even perform, dropping out of the competition, as this was Karina’s win condition for wakama.
