More About Bane and Shadow by Jon Skovron
 
 
 
Overview
A killer adventure fantasy follow-up to HOPE AND RED, set in a fracturing empire spread across savage seas, where two young people from different cultures find common purpose.
Red is being trained as a cold-blooded assassin by the biomancers. As he becomes increasingly embroiled in palace politics, he learns that even life among the nobility can be deadly.
While terrorizing imperial ships as the pirate Dire Bane, Hope stumbles onto a biomancer plot of such horrifying scope that it makes even the massacre of her childhood village seem small in comparison.
With the biomancers tightening their grip of fear over the empire, Hope and Red struggle to fill their new roles and responsibilities, but the cost will be greater than any of them realize.

Lovers Hope and Red (introduced in 2016s Hope and Red) return in the ingenious second installment of the Empire of Storms trilogy, set in a fantasy world where an empire spreads across many lands and seas. No easing into the reintroduction: the entire crew of an imperial frigate is slaughtered in the first chapter, their piratical killers identified by clothing alone. For readers who do not immediately recognize Bleak Hope, Brigga Lin, and the rest, a quick refresher with the first volume is probably a good idea. Skovrons pedal really hits the floor around chapter four, as Hope and her MacGyver-ish crew battle to recover Red, whos been taken by the biomancers. His durance appears light: Red has become Lord Pastinas of the imperial court, and is a favorite of the heir, Prince Leston. Reds defiance of his loathsome masters is continually challenged by discoveries of the unsuspected holds they have embedded in his body and mind. Hope, gnawed by self-doubt, has the satisfaction of more straightforward enemies to skewer and allies to bind. The story is very much a middle volume, coming to a stop rather than a conclusion, but its a tremendously satisfying segment of the journey. Agent: Jill Grinberg, Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
