Waterstones Says

Stewart’s epic fantasy trilogy The Drowning Empire reaches its mesmerising conclusion as Emperor Lin strives to find the seven mythical swords of legend to save the fate of Phoenix.

The battle is over. Now the war begins.

Lin Sukai has won her first victory as Emperor, but the future of the Phoenix Empire hangs in the balance - and Lin is dangerously short of allies. As her own governors plot treason, the Shardless Few renew hostilities. Worse still, Lin discovers her old nemesis Nisong has joined forces with the rogue Alanga, Ragan. Both seek her death.

Yet hopes lies in history. Legend tells of seven mythic swords, forged in centuries past. If Lin can find them before her enemies, she may yet be able to turn the tide. If she fails, the Sukai dynasty - and the entire empire - will fall.
