Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The mission was a failure. Even though Zivah and Dineas discovered a secret that could bring down the empire, their information is useless without proof. Now, with their cover blown and their quest abandoned, their only remaining hope is to get home before Ampara brings the full might of its armies against their peoples.

Horn Book Review

Since fighting in--and spying on--the Amparan military in Rosemarked, Dineas faces suspicions about his loyalty from his Shidadi tribemates. With the Amparan Empire invading, Dineas's love interest Zivah, a healer and a carrier of the horrific rose plague, resists the call to weaponize her disease against the enemy. Thoughtfully explored ethical dilemmas and a heart-tugging love story will engage reader sympathies in this compelling fantasy. (c) Copyright 2019.
