"I thrust my hand toward the sky as my voice begs the elemental inside me to waken and rise. But it's no use. The curse I've spent my entire life abhorring - the thing I trained so hard to control - no longer exists."
Nym has saved Faelen only to discover that Draewulf stole everything she valued. Now he's destroyed her elemental storm-summoning ability as well.
When Nym sneaks off with a host of delegates to Bron, Lord Myles offers her the chance for a new kind of power and the whispered hope that it may do more than simply defeat the monster she loathes. But the secrets the Bron people have kept concealed, along with the horrors Draewulf has developed, may require more than simply harnessing a darker ability.
They may require who she is.
Set against the stark metallic backdrop of the Bron kingdom, Nym is faced with the chance to change the future. Or was that Draewulf's plan for her all along?

Book Addict and a Fantasy Fanatic!
My review of Book 1 in this series including a long rant on the bad narration. I thought it fitting to start with narration for Book 2... BIG IMPROVEMENT!!! I would like to think the author read feedback given and tried someone new, if not then let's thank our lucky stars. This narrator actually differentiates between characters. She can give the story the correct emotions when needed.
Now for the story. It's a song 3 star book. We have a strong female lead who is forced to decide between the man she loves and saving a country. Her morality both helps and hurt her through her journey. I do question why she rarely thinks of Colin who she befriended in te first book. If your only 2 friends in thw whole world are taken from you, one would think they would be on your mind constantly.
The love story in this book is not the greastest. The two haven't even dated, made love, nor was there a big build up of emotions. They only knew each other a month and she hated him the first two weeks. The only time there was heat between them is when he kissed her for 2 seconds. Not even a french kiss. I mean, really? A whole month and she is risking her life and possible the lives of her countrymen.
The best part of this story is learning of Draewold and his daughter. They have an interesting back ground that is revealed.
Lastly, I was delighted in the turn of events with Miles. Hopefully, we dive into his background more in the next book.
