Book Description
Publication Date: May 25, 2012
After Aislinn and Dylan witness Shakan’s confession regarding the abduction of the royals, he is sentenced to banishment in the Overlap.

Shakan’s sentencing to the Overlap for his betrayal of the royals and his collaboration with the Klatrians leads Aislinn and Dylan to finalize their plans to rescue her parents before the Fortieth Tribunal. In the meantime, the Klatrian resistance make their own plans in response to Aislinn and Dylan’s arrival.

This book in the series starts with Aislinn using the communicator eye to speak with Vark. They begin negotiations to release Aislinn’s parents, Samara and Bonerus, in exchange for the skull. Vark is darkly twisted but has flashes of a prior time when he wasn’t so consumed.  There is a wonderful scene of interaction between the Royal parents as they meet with Rodorus and he explains more about the rebellion cause.

The authors then introduce Kinestra of another Nivana province.  Altithronus will move on to be with the Antiquitas and Kinestra will become a new support for Aislinn.  The Tribunal meets to sentence Shakan and begin the ceremony of banishing him to the Overlap, the place of temporal displacement. There is a battle against the dark force at the Overlap that Aislinn has to resolve.

There is a nice thread of continuity in circumstances of the last ceremonial banishment and the current ceremony. I was enjoying the process of the story and anticipating how the banishment would unfold when this episode abruptly ended. It felt like an inappropriate break point to me and left me disappointed.

An interesting quote:
Is this how it feels to stand at the pinnacle and gaze down on the world?
She wondered. No wonder so many had abused it before.  Location 668.
