In the sequel to New York Times bestselling A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Brigid Kemmerer returns to the world of Emberfall in a lush fantasy where friends become foes and love blooms in the darkest of places.
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 book picks up right after first one.
Grey is on the run hiding, while Rhen is picking up the pieces of his kingdom with Harper.
Grey wants nothing to do being a long lost heir. He thinks Rhen can rule his people just fine without him. He is also afraid what Rhen will do to him if he knew the truth. Now he is hiding and hope the kingdoms can be at peace without needing the heir help.
Rhen is getting fearful of this hidden heir with magic powers. He is loosing his sense on what is right and wrong. Rhen is becoming a ruthless king to be fear, while on the hunt for Rhen and answers he may have. With Harper still by his side, she still believes in him.
I did liked this book, but not love it like the first one. At times the story felt like it drag out a little. Still the ending makes me excited to see what happens next. It told in three points of views and adds a new character in the mix.
It comes out January 7th. One lucky reader gets a chance to win a arc copy from me. Sorry US only..
