The Hive Mind has done the impossible—left its island prison. It's a matter of time before Amicae falls, and Laura Kramer has very few resources left to prevent it.
The council has tied her hands, and the gangs want her dead. Her only real choice is to walk away and leave the city to its fate.
I went right from The Monstrous Citadel into reading Fortress of Magi in the Chronicles of Amicae series. Everyone seems to have their own agenda and be against the Sinclair sweepers. I really enjoyed this but I think you have to read this series in order to have any idea of the plot and world.
Laura and Okane and their new allies do the best they can, but things are dire. They also have a huge lack of knowledge being too new in their learning. But they pick up quickly on things, and Grim is able to help Okane discover more about his magic. They were very lucky to meet the Rangers, Cherry and Grim.
Amicae is cut off in their communications with some other towns. The mobs are causing more trouble. The Council has their head in the sand and won’t do anything to help or protect the citizens.
The Sinclair sweepers have a fight to the death on their hands with the hive mind and Rex. They can’t count on anyone else. In fact, some of the mobsters are trying to kill them. But unfortunately for the mobsters, Clae is intolerant of those attacking Laura even though he is dead.
The ending is exciting and for the most part, satisfying. I do wish we could have had one more chapter to show a little more of how things go after the battle with the survivors. There are a few loose ends like the status of other towns and especially, the Magi in Rex. But maybe that would be handled in another book? I hope there will be another book in this series.
