Summary
The battle has been won, but the war is just beginning.

Although at long last Razia Khan has found peace with herself and love with her prince, Arjun, her trials are far from over. In order to save her prince and his city from certain destruction, Razia made a deal with the devil--her father, the Sultan of Nizam. Now the bill has come due.

Razia must secure the province of Zindh, a land surrounded by enemies, and loyal to a rebel queen who has survived her father's purge. But when her old tormentor Prince Karim invades her new home and forces her into a marriage alliance, Razia finds herself trapped in the women's quarters of a foreign palace, with her beloved Prince Arjun exiled from her side.

Now, in order to free herself, and her province, from Karim's clutches, she must call upon all of her training as a royal princess, a cunning courtesan, and a daring thief to summon new allies and old friends for a battle that will decide her fate, and the fate of an empire.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "The enthralling sequel to Stealing Thunder returns to the South Asian--inspired fantasy world of Daryastan, where trans heroine Princess Razia Khanum finds her newly vested power slipping through her fingers. The Zindh province where Razia has been installed as governor is in the throes of a rebellion, and, worse, Razia's father is attempting to force Razia into an arranged marriage to her rapist, Karim Shah. Separated from her lover, Prince Arjun, Razia must face her worst fears and exploit every tool at her disposal to ensure her own freedom and the safety of her people. With fast pacing and a consistently strong emotional core, Boyden further develops the series' themes of power, sacrifice, and father-daughter relationships, while moving beyond the questions of gender and social expectations that many readers may expect from a story with a trans protagonist. The immersive world of Daryastan is further developed to add both grit and beauty, and, in Razia, Boyden has created a smart, scrappy, and tenacious trans woman protagonist whose exploits are a delight to read. Lovers of non-Western fantasy and readers looking for empowering women- and trans-led stories will be thrilled. Agent: Andrea Somberg, Harvey Klinger Literary. (Apr.)"
