From the Author
The concept for Silent Kingdom came to me when I was thinking about how people handle the truth. It made me wonder what sort of trouble someone could get into if they had a gift that showed them the truth and compelled them to voice it. What would happen if you knew a dark secret that could cost you your life, and your gift wouldn't let you hold it back?
Fantasies like Lord of the Rings inspired me from an early age, making me want to create a world that readers could get lost in and a plot that would keep them on the edges of their seats. From that first concept that gave birth to Halia's gift,my world for this series continued to grow, until I was creating new monsters and dreaming up conflicted characters to get tangled up in Halia's adventures.

"Your vague speeches will not save us."
I really enjoyed heading into Misroth again in this second book of the series and traveling further into the story as we headed towards Toryn. Again, one of my favorite parts of reading this series is Schade's writing. This is definitely for readers who love Throne of Glass and Lord of the Rings. With travels across wide lands and battles with epic creatures, it is a 'cinematic' masterpiece on page.
As per usual, Schade did not disappoint with throwing plot twists and turns into the story. I was left surprised at the end (but also wanting to throw my book across the room because she nailed the frustrations). I enjoyed watching Haila's character develop and grow as she is forced to interact and make decisions as royalty all while trying to fight with the ultimate moral question: which is for the greater good? The sacrifice of one or the sacrifice of many.
I also really appreciated an additional character in this book. I won't spoil it but it reminds me of another Sarah J. Maas character; with a very mysterious outside but an even greater complexity than the reader first anticipates. They would "rather be the hunter than the prey" which makes them come across an outsider.
Thank you again, Rachel, for making me bend the knee to an epic second book and I am so excited for the epic conclusion.
Rachel Schade takes us through a high fantasy journey to the land of Toryn. Halia must learn to trust people she believed to be her enemy and fight alongside them in order for a chance to save her kingdom and her cousin, the rightful King of Misroth.
This book made me feel anxious, angry, happy, and sad. The characters a rich and whole and it makes me want to learn everything I can about them. I really hope Schade does a spin-off series or short stories to learn more about her side characters.
