Renata is a Robari, a memory thief, cursed and feared by all, including her own magic-wielding people, the Moria. Abducted from her parents at a young age, she is forced to work for the King's Justice until the Moria rescue her. When Dez, the commander of her rebel unit, is captured, she naturally decides to avenge him by going back into the belly of the beast, becoming a member of the palace once again and completing the mission that Dez could not. Hand this dark and twisting fantasy to readers who love subterfuge in a royal court or a heroine who, like Graceling's Katsa, chooses to fight for a side that doesn't necessarily want her. Because the story is loosely inspired by the Spanish Inquisition, many of the names of people and places in this world are Spanish. This historical allusion blends a bit of familiarity with the magic, drawing readers right into the adventure. Incendiary serves up a satisfying plate of revenge garnished with secrets and surprises along the way. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.

In this duology opener from Córdova (the Brooklyn Brujas series), King Fernando of Puerto Leones conquers neighboring Memoria and its magically gifted people by kidnapping seven-year-old Renata Convida, a Moria memory thief, and using her to extract tactical knowledge from prisoners. Two years later, Moria rebels dubbed the Whispers rescue Ren and train her as one of their own. Now 17, Ren knows many Whispers think her a traitor for the bloodshed she unwittingly facilitated as a child. Consequently, when she accidentally endangers her boyfriend and unit commander, Dez, during his mission to destroy a weapon that could eradicate the remaining Moria, she flees camp without telling anyone and resolves to save Dez herself—even if doing so means returning to the palace where she was a prisoner. This Spanish Inquisition–inspired fantasy beguiles with evocative prose, organic worldbuilding, and an ethnically diverse cast. Córdova does little to establish Dez and Ren's romance, diminishing the story's emotional heft, and the mechanics of the characters' assorted powers feel murky and convenient, but ample intrigue propels the tale to a gripping close. Ages 14–up. Agent: Stephen Barbara, InkWell Management. (Apr.)
