Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Naamah book so far. Beautiful and heartbreaking. Moirin goes off in pursuit of Bao and the other half of her soul for lack of a better term. And while she does find him, it's not the reunion she was hoping for. Things get worse as Moirin is cruelly betrayed and she and Bao are once more separated, only this time they are ripped apart from each other through no fault of their own. They travel to far, opposite ends of the earth, each searching for the other, striving for each other, only to find more trouble and heartbreak before each other in the end. I don't know who I feel worse for, Moirin or Bao. You follow Moirin through her trials and torture, and so feel and ache for her, but when reunited with Bao, you see he has gone through a different form of torture that breaks your heart. But as I said it is a beautiful and heartwarming story, despite the darkness that the characters go through, and I think the best of Carey's books so far.
