Unlike the first book of her Daughters of the Crescent Moon series, this book has us travelling in the past. Personally, I enjoyed this second book a little more because we got to learn more about the magical world and the ultimate goals of the antagonists. The presence of the antagonists is also stronger so it makes it more thrilling and dangerous for the characters. Although a few characters from book 1 are back in this sequel, it feels like there’s a disconnect between the two books. One is set in the present, while two is set in the past. The switch in main characters also doesn’t help with the connectivity of the stories. The narrative is completely different and the feel of the stories don’t match.
Although I have a hard time seeing this book as part of a series, the story itself is an entertaining one. The sorceress Narena is on a quest to find the people who threaten the King of Leisos and his heirs. The plot to overturn the kingdom which was discovered in book one is a lot more dangerous than the original theory. Narena suspects Torrin, her ex-lover and father of her daughter, to be involved in the plot, but what she discovers is a lot more complicated and shocking than what she expected. Not only does she reconnect with people from her past, she also meets new people that become unlikely allies.
Since it’s publicized as being part of a trilogy, I can only imagine there will be third book. I can’t wait to see what happens next. This second book has me invested in the trilogy so I will definitely be on the lookout for what happens next.
