***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
While Prince Valerian adjusts to marriage as well as his new title, conspiracy brews in the south among disgruntled lords who wish to separate from the north. The situation is made even more volatile by a charismatic rebel leader whose guerrilla tactics are swift and brutal.
The clandestine efforts of a witch hired by one of the lords render Valerian’s gift of Sight ineffective, and Merry’s Healing gift is sorely tested.
It has become dangerous for a northerner living in the south, and if the gifted young royals fail to stop the growing rebellion, evil will reign in Levathia.
As with book 1, we learn that Mercy’s power is still with her but through this whole book we deal with more pain, struggle, heartbreak and loyalty. Kieran comes into a bigger role in this novel, and it definitely ups the struggles we face during this story. Coming into the new roles in the court, treachery and treason lie just around the corner.
The world building is strong as before, and the character just grow deeper and really connect with you. Plus, there’s dragons! There is always an excitement when dragons get involved.
Throughout the whole story, the underlying message of faith is present, but you do not need to have a specific belief in order to enjoy this. It is not overly in your face, and doesn’t take away from the excellent writing in this second installment.
