Generations of twin goddesses have long ruled Aeon. But seventeen years ago, one sister’s betrayal defied an ancient prophecy and split their world in two. The planet ceased to spin, and a Great Abyss now divides two realms: one cloaked in perpetual night, the other scorched by an unrelenting sun. While one sister rules Aranth—a frozen city surrounded by a storm-wracked sea —her twin inhabits the sand-locked Golden City. Each goddess has raised a daughter, and each keeps her own secrets about her sister’s betrayal. But when shadowy forces begin to call their daughters, Odessa and Haidee, back to the site of the Breaking, the two young goddesses —along with a powerful healer from Aranth, and a mouthy desert scavenger —set out on separate journeys across treacherous wastelands, desperate to heal their broken world. No matter the sacrifice it demands.
This book sounded really, really interesting and I was looking forward to reading it. But for some reason, it took me awhile to actually getting around to reading it. It sounds fascinating. One world that is split in two, one cloaked in never ending darkness, one burning in never ending sunlight. Goddesses, sisters, and so much more. I really do not know why I waited so long to read this! Trigger warnings: PTSD, grief
