Find the heir, win the crown.
The curse is finally broken, but Prince Rhen of Emberfall faces darker troubles still. Rumors circulate that he is not the true heir and that forbidden magic has been unleashed in Emberfall. Although Rhen has Harper by his side, his guardsman Grey is missing, leaving more questions than answers. Win the crown, save the kingdom. Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen--until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force. Her own daughter Lia Mara sees the flaws in her mother’s violent plan, but can she convince Grey to stand against Rhen, even for the good of Emberfall? The heart-pounding, compulsively readable saga continues as loyalties are tested and new love blooms in a kingdom on the brink of war.
I loved this book!!! I even loved it more than the first book. If you read my review to book one you know that Grey was always my front runner and I liked him more than Rhen. So that alone was great but for the book to be so fucking epic was even better. It had me swooning and crying, happy, and sad tears. I was at the edge of my seat the entire time. Like last book we get a lot of twist and turns and surprises which I enjoyed. But I think what I enjoyed the most, besides Grey was, that we get the world expanded. We learn so much more about Emberfall and neighboring kingdoms and customs. We don’t get much if Harper and Rhen , which for Rhen is good, I really, really hated him this book, even at the end of it all . Harper stayed true to her character. I loved the relationship Grey and Jake had, and how it progressed to get there. I also enjoyed Tycho a lot. Lia Mara was fantastic as well, I really liked her from the beginning and she really, really is the perfect match for Grey. Overall epic book, better than book one, The ending…. Some things I saw coming a mile ahead other things really took me by surprises. The ending was torture and I can’t believe we have to wait till the end of 2021(according to GR) for the next book.
I rate this also a full 5★
