The 2nd of the Raven Duology. There is no time to rest for Seraph and her family after their defeat of the Path. On the way home they find more and more evidence that there is a new Shadowed about and one that seems to be targeting their family. When the Emperor comes to them for help and the old Lark tells them that they must find the lost city, they realize that the fate of the world, not just their family, is resting in their hands.
A good ending to an epic fantasy tale. I felt that the final show-down with the Shadowed felt a little rushed and too Deux Ex Machina but not enough to truly detract from the overall wonderful story telling and incredible world building of the duology.
