- Kirkus Reviews on Sisters of the Snake
Daughters of the Dawn takes twin sisters Ria and Rani deep into dangerous new lands to save their home in this propulsive, immersive sequel to Sisters of the Snake, perfect for fans of We Hunt the Flame and The Wrath & the Dawn.
The powerful Bloodstone is in dangerous hands. And a deadly new threat rises.
Ria and Rani have barely settled into their new lives at the palace—as princesses, as sisters—when a sinister new prophecy uproots them once more.
The Blood Moon will rise in one month’s time, and with it their enemy Amara’s opportunity to destroy everything Ria and Rani hold dear.
The twin princesses must find Amara and retrieve the Bloodstone before the month is up—a deadly search that separates Ria and Rani once more and takes them into dangerous new lands.
In wintry kingdoms and scorching deserts, Ria and Rani find themselves pitted against ancient mysteries and trap-ridden labyrinths, lethal sea monsters and an elusive enemy that steals into their very dreams.
But as the Blood Moon looms closer, a new danger emerges that makes Ria and Rani question everything they thought they knew—and who their true enemy really is.
The lush world building of Star Daughter meets the thrilling adventure of Ash Princess in this sensational finale to Ria’s and Rani’s journeys that pits them against impossible odds—and battles from within that could destroy everything they’ve fought to save.
