Espionage, diplomacy, conspiracy, passion, and power are the sensuously choreographed steps of this soaring new high fantasy novel by Ilana C. Myer, one woman's epic mission to stop a magical conflagration. Lin, newly initiated in the art of otherworldly enchantments, is sent to aid her homeland's allies against savage attacks from the Fire Dancers: mysterious practitioners of strange and deadly magic. Forced to step into a dangerous waltz of tradition, treachery, and palace secrets, Lin must also race the ticking clock of her own rapidly dwindling life to learn the truth of the Fire Dancers' war, and how she might prevent death on a scale too terrifying to contemplate. Myer's novel is a symphony of secret towers, desert winds, burning sands, blood and dust. Her prose soars, and fluid movements of the politically charged plot carry the reader toward a shocking crescendo.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Intricate, enthralling, and devastating." --Yoon Ha Lee, author of Ninefox Gambit

"A wondrous world matched in beauty only by the prose in which it is sung. Ilana Myer is incredible." --Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings

"A brilliantly imagined page-turner...uses lush, lyrical prose to propel the reader through the machinations of a wildly original fantasy world. Highly recommended." --Scott Hawkins, author of The Library at Mount Char

"With its lush bouquet of elegance, intrigue, and passion, Fire Dance is Myer at her most intoxicating." --Mishell Baker, author of Borderline

"Sings of the atrocities of kings, the conspiracy of sorcerers, and the silk poison of palace intrigue...A triumph of insight and humanity." --Seth Dickinson, author of The Traitor Baru Cormorant

"Beautifully lyrical, Myer's high-fantasy debut weaves a multilayered tale of good versus evil and intimate self-discoveries.... Builds to a poetic crescendo worthy of their epic quest. With detailed worldbuilding and vivid characters...this lush and luminous story combines exquisite splendor and fathomless cruelty as it champions the power of art and the resilience of the human spirit." --RT Book Reviews

"Court intrigue and shadowy power spread through a richly described world, with strong characters and intricate prose to construct this absorbing plot...Myer's sequel to Last Song Before Night is as powerful as its predecessor." -- Library Journal
