Find the heir, win the crown.
The curse is finally broken, but Prince Rhen of Emberfall faces darker troubles still. Rumors circulate that he is not the true heir and that forbidden magic has been unleashed in Emberfall. Although Rhen has Harper by his side, his guardsman Grey is missing, leaving more questions than answers.
Win the crown, save the kingdom.
Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen–until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force. Her own daughter Lia Mara sees the flaws in her mother’s violent plan, but can she convince Grey to stand against Rhen, even for the good of Emberfall?
The heart-pounding, compulsively readable saga continues as loyalties are tested and new love blooms in a kingdom on the brink of war.
In the sequel to New York Times bestselling A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Brigid Kemmerer returns to the world of Emberfall in a lush fantasy where friends become foes and love blooms in the darkest of places.
For the good of Emberfall indeed! Silver Hell, this book was hard to put down. As usual, the storytelling was impeccable! If you think that the first book was great, you have no idea what the 2nd book has in store for you!
After the curse is broken by Harper in the first book, Brigid Kemmerer takes us on a journey of rebuilding Emberfall and facing a new but old threat in the point of views of mainly Grey and Lia Mara, the daughter of Queen Karis Luran of Syhl Shallow.
To be frank, I am unsure how to write this review without spoilers BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH I WANT TO SCREAM ABOUT! The plot twists and surprises in the book are unexpected and Ho Mai Goddddd. . . I am HERE for this! To see Grey going through his struggles like he is thriving in them not trying to swim in the current but is actually drowning. AND Lia Mara! Hands down, if you liked Harper, you’ll love Lia Mara. Harper is a Princess, she lends support and guides Rhen in his decisions, she’s like a walking stick that he leans on when it all becomes too much. Lia Mara, wow, she’s the mother-effing QWEEEN. She is a leader that is compassionate and humble, her empathy is felt from her people and her kindness spreads like love among her subjects. Even though she is quiet and stays out of the spotlight in her country because her sister is the chosen heir to her mother’s throne, her people know her, the true her.
There is a line she said and I stand by it.
“Ah yes, the most dangerous person at the party is always the girl sitting alone with a book.”Princess Harper
My dear, you have no idea how true that it. Think about it! If you have a hardcover book, you can smash it on your assailant’s skull! But for real, she is the most dangerous person at the party because she reads a lot and her knowledge is endless, she is such a cute little nerd that keeps her nerdiness hidden, much like us readers if you ask me. HAAHAHAHA.
