Now Toren Renne, leader of his great and troubled house, dreams of peace—a valiant desire that has spawned hostility among his kinsmen, and vicious internal plots against his life. In the opposing domain, Elise Wills's desire for freedom is to be crushed, as an unwanted marriage to an ambitious and sinister lord looms large. As always, these machinations of nobles are affecting the everyday lives of the common folk—and feeding a bonfire of animosity that has now trapped an unsuspecting young Valeman Tam and two fortune-hunting friends from the North in its high, killing flames.

Goodreads Summary:

A darkly irresistible new fantasy set in the infamous Gomorrah Festival, a traveling carnival of debauchery that caters to the strangest of dreams and desires.

Sixteen-year-old Sorina has spent most of her life within the smoldering borders of the Gomorrah Festival. Yet even among the many unusual members of the traveling circus-city, Sorina stands apart as the only illusion-worker born in hundreds of years. This rare talent allows her to create illusions that others can see, feel and touch, with personalities all their own. Her creations are her family, and together they make up the cast of the Festival’s Freak Show.

Coupled with the ecological damage done by open-cast mining, subsidence has made parts of the Jharia region like a moonscape, pockmarked with deep, smoking ravines from which billowing flames can often be seen.

At night the area is lit up with an eerie burning glow and the path of the advancing fires can be traced along the line of broken, smoking houses they leave in their wake. Every few months another village is snuffed out of existence as houses are hollowed into a smoking shell or gradually disappear into the huge cracks that open in the ground.  

It remains to be seen whether these issues will be overcome and settlements will eventually create their own source of livelihood and commerce, but there are also other groups in the area who have been affected, such as the peasant farmers who owned the land on which new settlements are being built, but who themselves now have nowhere else to go.

THe group arrives and meets, they chat, an assassin named heather shows up, she is the guardian of the town. They team up and head to the town, killing many bandits because they murdered a little girl. Suddenly a dragon flies over head, and they leave to fight it, after it poofs away, being a 'summon' they get back to town to fight he bandit leader. The dragon was actually a woman who could shift into a dragon, they foought and the team was victorious. Heather kisses Nobu, and Kant manages to get a picture.
