Following their narrow escape at the end of book one, Bree and friends plunge right into another adventure. Bree is still suffering the repercussions of her father’s noble choice . . . and trying to process the secrets he shared with her. It turns out, Bree is far from the ordinary tavern-keeper’s daughter. She is in fact a dispossessed princess . . . and if she wants to save her kingdom, she’s going to have her work cut out for her!
Bree and Prince Caden (who’s just as dreamy as a reader can hope for) both have compelling storylines in this amazing sequel. It was wonderful to see Caden truly standing up to his father and leading the rebellion. Bree is a heroine I love to root for—smart, resourceful, compassionate. She takes an emotional beating, but it’s wonderful to watch her grow and mature through her heartache.
This action-filled sequel certainly does not suffer from second book syndrome. Jennifer Ellision raises the stakes again and again to keep her readers turning pages. I read the last third of it all in a rush and immediately dived into book 3 . . . which I’ll be reviewing next (as soon as I’ve finished it).
