The only issue I had with the sequel was the aggrivation you feel for Frey because she is continually kept in the dark, mainly because when something big is revealed to her she "shuts down" and blacks out for periods of time. But, even this begins to lend to the story. At first, I couldn't help but wonder if Frey is weak and even asked myself why anyone would risk their life for a weak ruler.
But then you begin to see the brilliance in this strategy. In my opinion, Frey blacks out, not because she is weak but because she is bound. And the fact that she survives this binding without going insane (unlike her aunt) shows she is stronger than any of the other characters and no matter how frustrating it is to see her kept in the dark, it's important to the story. No one wants to overwhelm her and risk damaging the leader they know she is.
This also makes the love story incredibly strong. While reading, I kept yelling at chevelle, "why don't you tell her the truth about your past together!!!????" But then it hit me:
1. He is falling in love with this other side of Frey, the frail side.
2. Who wants to tell someone "hey, just so you know, you're in love with me." He wants her to discover that on her own.
In the end, this deepens their love beyond the extraordinary.
1. Because he stayed beside the new Frey and protected her
2. He was able to love the person she would become when she recovered her memories. How beautiful is that?
Everything she went through made her a more rounded person, eliminating prejudices and making her a better ruler, and it allowed her to fall in love twice with a man who ended up with a better woman.
I love this book. I hope this isn't the end of chevelle and frey's story. I am now invested in their lives.
Melissa Wright is an example why Indie writing, while many can be poorly written, can be an extraordinary work of art for the right kind of writer. Publishers, where are you? :)
I enjoyed the second book as much as the first if not more!! Melissa is doing a great job in continuing the story and revealing facts that is vital for the storyline. I will continue this journey with Frey until she takes her rightful place as ruler of the North.
