When last we saw Aniri, she was due to marry Ash, Prince of Jungali, in a week. Her mother and eldest sister have arrived in Bhatki, Jungali's capital city, for the wedding and Aniri had iceberg feet. She's barely 18, and unsure that she could make a good Queen--let alone a good wife. Plus, she fears that her affection for Ash was the product of their adventure together. She knows he's a good man--Aniri feels a bit...unworthy.

Then, on the eve of their wedding, Aniri's pregnant sister, Seledri survives an assassination attempt and Aniri takes Ash's skyship to Samir (with Ash's permission yet against his reservations) to "visit" Seledri; even Aniri's maid Priya and her personal guard Janak know Aniri's planning to remove Seledri. Why not? There are serious rumors that Samir is planning to invade Aniri's homeland Dharia--which would put Seledri at greater risk.

Arriving in Samir, Aniri finds the situation more dire than she expected--her sister's husband is in a battle for the throne with his younger brother and Seledri is a pawn in the struggle. Aniri gets unexpected help from her former "lover" Devesh and and a person she hasn't seen in eight long years, both of whom have questionable loyalty.

Still, they are able to rescue Seledri--not without casualties--and the return to Jungali should be triumphant. It is not. Aniri made some key mistakes in the mission, and Ash is ready to send her back to Dharia unwed. Her intelligence gained--that Samir likely has an armada of skyships--hastens Ash's defensive plans, and his efforts to get Aniri far from danger. And out of his country. Of course, Aniri's fickle heart had finally decided that Ash was The One....had been ready to pledge herself wholeheartedly, until he didn't want her.

Someday I may learn to charge my Kindle's battery before I open one of Ms. Quinn's books. That oversight is the only reason I didn't devote the entire day to reading Second Daughter. I still finished this book much too quickly. I knew that would happen.

I loved Third Daughter. While I wouldn't say that I liked Second Daughter better, I do think it added a lot of depth to the main characters. I felt like I got to know them better, and it was a treat to meet Seledri as well. That lady has nerves of steel, I'd say. As for Aniri and Ash, it was hard not to want to knock their heads together at times. It's tough to say which of them is more insecure, not to mention stubborn. It's impossible not to love them. This is a measure of Ms. Quinn's serious skill with character development. I enjoy all of the characters in this series.

As with the first book, I was delighted with the vivid imagery drawn by the descriptive details. The clothes, the dancing scene, the sky ships, the palaces, the shops and streets - all are fascinating, and so easy to picture from the words on the page. More serious skill there.

I love everything about this series, even if I am wondering if Aniri and Ash are EVER going to get married. This series is a great deal of fun to read. I'm very happy to wait for the last book. I just wish it wasn't going to be last book in this intriguing world.

(Full disclosure: I received a free e-copy of this book for review from the author.)

When last we saw the Third Daughter of Dharia, she was on board the reclaimed skyship Prosperity, bound for Jungali with the “barbarian” prince Ash at her side. The two planned to wed – for love, *not* country – but their happy ending was somewhat overshadowed by the possibility that their former Samirian allies had build a second, undiscovered skyship, ominously named the Dagger. With one sister – the Second Daughter of Dharia, Seledri – married into the Samirian royal house, the prospect of war with Samir threatens to tear apart Princess Aniri’s family as well as her nation.

SECOND DAUGHTER picks up where THIRD DAUGHTER left off, with Aniri and Ash’s return to his (soon to be their) Jungali mountain palace, where preparations for the upcoming nuptials begin immediately. Though Dharia and Jungali are united by a peace treaty, a marriage will help to further cement the alliance - especially important in wartime. But with her return to relative normalcy, Aniri begins to distrust her heart, which led her horribly astray in past dalliances. Pre-wedding jitters left unspoken threaten to derail the wedding. And then comes word of a foiled assassination attempt on Seledri, giving Aniri ample reason to play the proverbial runaway bride.

With handmaiden Priya, Master Tinker Karan, and still-recovering raksaka Janak at her side, Aniri flies the Prosperity into Samir – ostensibly just to check on the well-being of her pregnant sister, but with designs to whisk Seledri away to Dharia should she agree.

I am a fan of this trilogy. When I finished the first book. I bought the next two immediately. I was hooked. The characters are addicting - even the borderline good ones and the evil ones. I wanted to know what was next. Aniri, Ashoka, Janaka, Karan, Priya. Feverish, the Queen, and Nahali own this book. You will not be disappointed reading these books. Anxious, frustrated, terrified, loving are just a few of the emotions you will feel. Read them. I am going to book 3 now.
