Trapped within the dead city of Marandur, Master Mechanic Mari and Mage Alain must escape both merciless barbarians and the pitiless Imperial Legion. Beyond those dangers lie the mightiest and most unforgiving powers in the world of Dematr: the Great Guilds that rule the world with iron fists.
Mari's Mechanics Guild and Alain's Mage Guild have always been enemies, but they are united in wanting to kill their rogue members before Mari can fulfill the ancient prophecy of being the one who will finally overthrow their power. Mari and Alain must risk those dangers because halfway across their world lies a place where truth has long been hidden. A place that could explain why their world's history begins abruptly, with no hints of what came before. A place where they might learn how the Mechanics Guild came to control all technology and how the Mages manage to alter reality temporarily. A place that might tell them how to achieve a task that appears to be impossible.
Never before have a Mage and a Mechanic worked together, and their combined talents offer their only hope. But she and Alain must first survive the deadly and implacable Assassins of Altis.

The Action is finally starting

The reunion with Mari's family is extremely staged and unnatural. Alain seems to get more and more pushed over by Mari. Marrying him without him even knowing? Is he only there for conversation and protection, no opinion till the end? He is far toooo altruistic. But the peaks on the backstory are nice. That Mari's awkward denials are finally fixed was long overdue. The final was nice. The involvement of more characters was good move as well allowing some less Mari and her annoying sweet talking in the future.
To summarise plot wise it is the best of the series. Character wise the first one was stronger.
