After spinning an enthralling world in Witchmark, praised as a "can't-miss debut" by Booklist, and as "thoroughly charming and deftly paced" by the New York Times, C. L. Polk continues the story in Stormsong. Magical cabals, otherworldly avengers, and impossible love affairs conspire to create a book that refuses to be put down. Dame Grace Hensley helped her brother Miles undo the atrocity that stained her nation, but now she has to deal with the consequences. With the power out in the dead of winter and an uncontrollable sequence of winter storms on the horizon, Aeland faces disaster. Grace has the vision to guide her parents to safety, but a hostile queen and a ring of rogue mages stand in the way of her plans. There's revolution in the air, and any spark could light the powder. What's worse, upstart photojournalist Avia Jessup draws ever closer to secrets that could topple the nation,and closer to Grace's heart. Can Aeland be saved without bloodshed? Or will Kingston die in flames, and Grace along with it?

"Moira Quirk narrates a fantasy novel involving the consequences of politics. Dame Grace Hensley has the opportunity to right the course of her country, or not, but either choice will come at a devastating cost to her family. Quirk's portrayal of Grace is bright and smart, reflecting her station in society as well as her position in government. Journalist Avia Jessup is similar to Grace, although her father was in trade, and Quirk's portrayal of her is ever so slightly more brittle and tart as a result. Sevitii an Vaavut, a Laneeri diplomat, is portrayed with a noticeable accent by Quirk as a nod to the fact that she doesn't speak the same language as the rest of the characters.
