Josslyn Drake knows only three things about magic: it’s rare, illegal, and always deadly. So when she’s caught up in a robbery gone wrong at the Queen’s Gala and infected by a dangerous piece of magic—one that allows her to step into the memories of an infamously evil warlock—she finds herself living her worst nightmare. Joss needs the magic removed before it corrupts her soul and kills her. But in Ironport, the cost of doing magic is death, and seeking help might mean scheduling her own execution. There’s nobody she can trust.
Nobody, that is, except wanted criminal Jericho Nox, who offers her a deal: his help extracting the magic in exchange for the magic itself. And though she’s not thrilled to be working with a thief, especially one as infuriating (and infuriatingly handsome) as Jericho, Joss is desperate enough to accept.
But Jericho is nothing like Joss expects. The closer she grows with Jericho and the more she sees of the world outside her pampered life in the city, the more Joss begins to question the beliefs she’s always taken for granted—beliefs about right and wrong, about power and magic, and even about herself.
In an empire built on lies, the truth may be her greatest weapon
A world where magic is forbidden…
Josslyn all her life was to believe that magic was evil. She blindly follows the rules of her world without knowing the truth. When she gets caught up in a robbery gone wrong, she about to learn a hard truth about her world.
Echoes and Empires was a magical adventure. Another fantasy world I did enjoyed. It was action packed, full of fun twists. Also it has another beautiful cover of the main character. Josslyn at first is acting like a spoiled brat. Then she kinda grows out of it along the way. Her views of world start changing after she start believing the truth. Nothing is ever what it seems in this society.
It was very action packed, full of magic fun. I love how Josslyn and Jericho act with each other. They always butting heads throughout the book. I’m so looking forward to book two to come out. This book was a magical read from beginning to end.
