Series: Earthsinger Chronicles #2
The Mantle that separates the kingdoms of Elsira and Lagrimar is about to fall. And life will drastically change for both kingdoms.
Born with a deadly magic she cannot control, Kyara is forced to become an assassin. Known as the Poison Flame in the kingdom of Lagrimar, she is notorious and lethal, but secretly seeks freedom from both her untamed power and the blood spell that commands her. She is tasked with capturing the legendary rebel called the Shadowfox, but everything changes when she learns her target’s true identity.
Darvyn ol-Tahlyro may be the most powerful Earthsinger in generations, but guilt over those he couldn’t save tortures him daily. He isn’t sure he can trust the mysterious young woman who claims to need his help, but when he discovers Kyara can unlock the secrets of his past, he can’t stay away.
Kyara and Darvyn grapple with betrayal, old promises, and older prophecies—all while trying to stop a war. And when a new threat emerges, they must beat the odds to save both kingdoms.
Such a cool continuation of this series!
Once again, what a total awesome addition to the Fantasy genre.
PENELOPE made this world an enjoyable place to live in besides Kyara as this character must fight to tame her power while releasing it at the same time.
The inner struggle that Kyara had to face caused her to confront who she was and who she could be in the future based on every one of her decisions. Even though I don’t have “fantastical” powers like hers, I could identify with the struggle of having to know who you are in a world that demands so much from you.
Darvyn ol-Tahlyro was also a character that I could relate to because trusting others and allowing them into your world with the pre- knowledge that they have the potential to destroy it can be a hard beam to balance. It can also be hard attempting to avoid something that you know you long for at the same time. Darvyn’s inner turmoil rests upon having to trust Kyara to deliver in a world that is so built on frameworks of betrayal and disillusion. Darvyn’s story also showed me how one must also entrust themselves with tasks that they might have met with setbacks in the past.
Finally, the team up in this novel was just so fresh and on-point that it turned into an un-put-down-able reading escape for me.
Go grab this novel now, and indulge in this fast-paced, action-packed experience of a lifetime!
