Back Cover Blurb:
Choosing his successor is only the beginning of Kalen’s troubles: his Guardians have turned against the Code and Covenant. Instead of securing the Ascension of a new Rift King, they’re doing everything in their power to ensure Kalen’s survival, even if it means the destruction of the Six Kingdoms.
To make matters worse, the skreed conjured in Morinvale aren’t just growing stronger. They’re breeding, and they aren’t picky about what—or who—they’ll eat.
The in depth & intricate character development creates a cast that readers won’t ever be able to forget. I love how they grow from the individuals that we met in the first novel in the series without changing the essential elements that make them who they are. There were some characters that I connected with instantly. Others, I formed an almost instant dislike to. The contrasts were phenomenal.
As a whole, this was a brilliant addition to Blain’s series. I devoured it in less than a day. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
