This is a entertaining and interesting book to read and I really enjoyed reading it. The continuation from the book "A Plague of Shadows" into this book is smooth and flawless. The story covers Abigail a 19yr old young woman, who followed the Light Guards rules. Abigail and her sister Leona lived with their father Dolan but Abigail suffered from strange and terrifying dreams and what followed, changed her life forever and now her journey still continues. What you will find in this story is drama, suspense, dreams, harbringers, elves, dwarves, Gods, a butterfly/pixie, Norse mythology, Shadow Plague, a losing battle, shadow warrior, Singers Trail, temptation by music, and deeper into Agaranth. I found the story-line and plot well thought out and written, the scene description is excellent. Overall this is a good clean book for all ages and I would recommend it.
This reviews contains spoilers for the first book in the series, "A Plague of Darkness."
In "The Darkling Tide," the 2nd book in Travis Simmons' "Harbingers of Light" series, we rejoin Abigail, Leona, Rorick and Daphne on The Singer's Trail as they travel through the Fey Forest in search of the elf city and the community of Harbingers that they hope will help Abigail learn how to control the Wyrd powers that accompany the plague. Celeste, the Light elf who had been guiding them has been recalled to the elf city. With Celeste gone and the others new to this world, Daphne is their only guide. The further they travel, however, the harder it gets to resist the pull of the darklings along the sides of the warded trail.
Simmons continues to develop the characters, with each of them facing difficulties that challenge them in unique ways and force them to make choices for which they may not truly be ready. And while Abigail is undergoing a transformative change due to the plague she carries, in many ways, it is little Leona who faces the greatest hurdles. In the first book, she had to sacrifice her beloved doll, Skuld - who frequently spoke to her and gave her guidance - in order to save her sister and their friends - killing the attacker in the process. Now we start to see how the experience is weighing on her.
The story had a lot of action to it and moves at a nice, steady pace. We learn more about Agaranth, get a chance to see the elf city, catch a glimpse into the politics between the dark and light elves and meet a few new characters, including Daniken, a dark elf who causes trouble between Abagail, Rorick and Leona.
The middle book in a trilogy is usually the trickiest. We've already been introduced to the main characters and had the world established in the first volume, and the its ending is really only a resting point, since the third book contains the climax and denouement. As a result, middle books can sometimes feel flat. Simmons has managed to avoid that here. The characters experience a number of gains and setbacks, while the tension slowly builds to lead us into the final episode. I'm really curious to see how it all turns out!
The Darkling Tide is book two of The Harbingers of Light series. This book starts right where book one left off. Gorjugan's warrior has been destroyed. As Abagail and Rorick were fighting a losing battle against the shadow warrior, Leona lit her doll on fire and threw it at the warrior killing it. She has not seen the being attached to the doll she has fondly called Skuld since. As you can recall, the light elf, Celeste has left them temporarily and promised to return before they reach the harbingers of light. As they meander their way through the Singers Trail, Abagail becomes overwhelming tempted, then all three of them are tempted by music. That is until the dark elf Daniken, Celeste's sister appears. Her scepter is of the moon, the opposite of her sister. Her scepter is also unlocked, which allows her to harm the darklings. She begins to guide them, but Abagail is leery of her. The trust she immediately feels with Celeste, she doesn't have for Daniken. Daniken proceeds to convince the others that it's the darkness that has begun to consume Abagail. What is Daniken's goal? Can they really trust her? Will the darklings be able to penetrate the wards? Why are the light elves against unlocking the scepters?
I was once again completely enchanted by this new world that was filled with nonstop action and adventure. I felt really bad for Leona as she watched the darkness slowly overtake her sister. For a fourteen year old, all things considered, she was pretty brave. She really stepped up to protect her sister when she had to. The book ended with the quest continuing in book three and hopefully we'll find out what will become of Abagail.
