Kiora is rapidly learning that evil and lies come in shades of black and white and swirling greys, but nothing could have prepared her for the shock of leaving Meros. Kiora and her protector Emane step through the pass into a world they never knew existed but were always meant to save, only to find it far worse than they could have ever imagined. Good has been forced into hiding for its own survival, while the rest of the land bows to the Shadow, a force that pushes any remaining thoughts of Dralazar from Kiora’s mind. This land is full of new creatures, each more dangerous than the last. Her visions have taken on a deadly twist, and magic, or what comes of it, was never so real. And then there is Alcander: a Tavean, their guide, and an entirely different kind of trouble.
People you seriously need to go pick up the first book if you have not had the chance to read it. AMAZING! So the time you take reading this review, that is time spent that you could have used going to buy this book. Just saying!
The book leaves off where the first one left off and you immediately jump into the action that the book has to offer the reader. The two main characters from the first book Kior and Emane are setting out on a quest or mission to find something but of course evil has to get in there way and make things difficult.
There is isn't much explaining having to be done in this book since the first book took care of most the explaining. There are some explanations but most of it is done in the first book. This book was set up so that you were always being entertained by the adventure and never halting to learn something totally new.
The relationship in this book is becoming sticky and I am unsure of where I want things to go. The characters are growing every page and Kiora is learning more about her power and although she may cause some things that is who she is and she has no control over everything.
Walls blew me out of the water and I am looking to see where this book ends with the final book. If you have not had the chance to pick up this book or the first book, literally drop all your things and go pick it up.
I give it 5 bites!
