Summary
"Baru Cormorant believes any price is worth paying to liberate her people--even her soul. When the Empire of Masks conquers her island home, overwrites her culture, criminalizes her customs, and murders one of her fathers, Baru vows to swallow her hate, join the Empire's civil service, and claw her way high enough to set her people free. Sent as an Imperial agent to distant Aurdwynn, another conquered country, Baru discovers it's on the brink of rebellion. Drawn by the intriguing duchess Tain Hu into a circle of seditious dukes, Baru may be able to use her position to help. As she pursues a precarious balance between the rebels and a shadowy cabal within the Empire, she orchestrates a do-or-die gambit with freedom as the prize. But the cost of winning the long game of saving her people may be far greater than Baru imagines"--Provided by publisher

Summary
When Baru Cormorant is just seven years old, the Empire of Masks conquers her small island home of Taranoke, imposing Masquerade law while destroying Taranoki culture. Determined to liberate her people from colonial rule, Baru excels in school and joins the Masquerade civil service. Although she hopes for an assignment in the capital city of Falcrest, Baru is instead appointed Imperial Accountant to the remote region of Aurdwynn to deal with its 13 seditious, squabbling dukes. Fans of Katherine Addison's The Goblin Emperor will appreciate this intricately plotted novel with its conflicted protagonist, extensive and detailed world-building, and knotty political intrigue. -- Description by Gillian Speace
