For 10 years, the noblewoman Seriana lived in exile, believing her husband Karon was dead, executed for practicing sorcery. But now she learns his soul has been anchored to this world by magic. He has been restored to life-though his memories of Seri are gone. When Seri's nephew is kidnapped - and a dark family secret comes to light - the two strangers will have to join together to defeat the evil Lords of Zhev'Na, who want to destroy both this world and the parallel magic realm that lies beyond.

Mostly use audio books in planes these days. Know I really like a book when I find myself with earphones still on from home to hotel
Picks up "immediately" after conclusion of 1st book. The setting is more confined and manages to stay very engaging even though it's very different than book 1 in scope. Good start, BUT chapters then switch point of view from main heroine to others and a different reader then reads that chapter. On the surface that might seem OK until that character describes the same events from a different viewpoint and the others characters remain voiced (sometimes with different pronunciations) by the reader for that person in that chapter. The different readers never voice their characters together. Because the viewpoint is switching between the different characters for some of the same events, it doesn't really move the plot along very far.
