I so enjoyed seeing Ryn learn about being a Drae and what we learn of the Drae race. On the flip side, I wasn't so thrilled with the Phaetyn prince. I wanted everyone to leave Ryn and Tyrrick alone to explore their feelings and it was clear Kamoi wasn't on the same page as me. Ryn learns that no race or kingdom is a paradise in so long as the emperor is around. Ryn grows and makes her decisions and I cannot wait to see where the next book takes us.
-My main issue in both books is Ryn. She was ALWAYS angry about something, constantly throwing tantrums and treating kings and queens disrespectfully. Basically she acted like a spoiled 12 year old the whole time. She was quite self-centered.. I would have loved to see more growth in her as long as other admirable qualities such as compassion, bravery, generosity... but it seemed like she became even more naive and immature since book 1, which I don't get if she is an 18 year old who grew up in a war torn, starving land her whole life. I would think she would be a little tougher and less emotional.
-Also I couldn't get passed the way she spoke.. she speaks like a homeschooled teenager from the 21st century, while as everyone else's speech matches the background world. A lot of her inner dialogue was just... unnecessary and cringeworthy.
Loved Tyrrik. Definitely favorite character and worth the read for him lol. Except he was out of it most of the time!
It was entertaining, not as good as the first one, and like I said, Ryn will annoy you. But I got through it. Haven't decided if I will read book 3 yet.
With each new addition to this story, I get pulled in deeper. There is so much more to the stories than we see from the outside, and everything comes from these two authors with such vibrancy and excitement that it leaves the story with no down-time. There is continuous backstory as we learn more about every character and their parts in this tale. It is beautifully and colorfully written, and makes me yearn for the next one.
These ladies surpassed what they did in book 1. I could NOT put this down. There were omg moments, ball your eyes out moments, and wtf moments. This book follows almost directly after the first with maybe a day or two gap. In this book we get see a whole new side to Tyrrik, you know, since the events of the last book happened. And its a side I'm liking, not that I didn't like him in book 1. You also get to see Ryn grow into her new powers and destiny. I love how Raye and Kelly take us on this journey with Ryn and allow us to learn and grow with her.
To say the least I loved this book! I am dying for the next one! I suggest, that you clear your schedule to read this because once you start, you won't want to stop.

Ryn grows and develops in this book but is still her usual funny self. I love her as a character and her attitude to everything around her but she also has a heart of gold. Her inner monologues crack me up and she's no longer as naive as she once was, which in some ways is sad, but in the world she's in she needs to be clever and guarded.
Yet again the world building is sublime. As I was reading I could clearly see each place described in my mind. This is one of those books where I really am transported into the boom itself and felt like I was experiencing, seeing and smelling everything the characters did.
Now to Tyrrik, my dear, dear Tyrrik. Oh how my heart fell even more for him in this book, so much so that I'd quite happily push Ryn aside and take her place, except I respect Ryn. Tyrrik is a beacon of strength for Ryn and would do pretty much anything for her, even if she doesn't agree with it. Their relationship didn't have the best of starts, but in this book they get to know and understand each other better.
This book would get a gazillion stars from me if I could give that many. I really loved reading it and enjoyed it so much. I'm really looking forward to the next book in the series, and am also hoping that both of these authors don't just stop at writing three books together as they've created magic with these books which I'm addicted to.
Thank you for sharing your stories.
This book was great, I read it in one day and was a little sad it finished. I love how Ryn keeps growing and keeps trying to be the girl she was before. It is something I would do too, it makes it personal.
You never really know what is going to happen in the book, I got surprised a few times and keep guessing about what will happen next. Love it.
I like it that there is another option of male hunka hunka in the book and that she still has the option to choose, even when you know the choice already.
It is definitely a book you need to read, read first book one, before you start this one.
I kind of missed the darker parts from the first book, only the story doesn’t need to much dark anymore. Still there are parts that are a little disturbing, and I mean a little, not much.

I love how Ryn has been developed and portrayed in this book. Broken and healing from the events in book 1, she is cautious and questions everyone's motives. She has trouble trusting herself and her instincts after the betrayal with Tyr in book 1 as well. I do love that she grows in this, and slowly learns to trust as people prove themselves to her - its not freely given! And lets not forget her newfound obsession with shiny objects - and how her Phaetyn side still questions this attraction in the back of her mind - she's not blind to it. Loved this - so well done!
Tyrrick redeems himself in this book. He is struggling with how to act now he's not under the blood oath, and the habits of 100yrs if slavery are not easy to break, but he is trying. He goes through a lot in this book as well - pain, near death, poison, more poisoning, and so on. Ryn calls him out on his selective information giving too - lying/deception by omission, and he then tries to break that habit and open up to her. As Dyter also points out to Ryn, he was 9yrs old when he was enslaved - he wouldn't have had a lot of knowledge of the ways of the Drae so only has his instincts to act on. Loved Dyter as a more involved character in this book too.
In short, if you haven't started this series already- why not?! Can't wait for book 3 to come out!
Tyrrik remains her ever present shadow even though she would rather him leave her alone.
This is a journey of self discovery for Ryn. Ranging from discovering her Phaetyn and Drae roots to a myriad of other issues brought about from the first book.
Raye Wagner and Kelly St Clare have written another masterpiece and the world they have created in this series is rich and beautiful and a rollercoaster that you wish would never end!
I was gifted a copy of this book but I have purchased my copy on Amazon AU.
I was slightly disappointed at how Ryn and Tyrrik interaction played out ( I don't want to give anything away for those of you who are yet to read the book) but this book felt slightly insincere to the complex relationship from book one.
I still enjoy Ryn but she has lost some of her charm and strength from book 1.
I will continue to read book 3 but am unsure as if this series has moved from a definitely will re read series to are finish and forget series, book 3 will clinch the deal I'm sure.
