Yes it gave my mind a fuller vision over the printed version.
Jennifer, Chris, and Robin return for the second fantastical journey of Ru Emerson's Night-Threads trilogy. The trio are met by two runaways, Aletto and Lialla, brother and sister from the mystical kingdom of Rhadaz. They have escaped from the estate of their uncle Jadek who has ruled for years, since the mysterious death of their father. Chris has taught Aletto how to fight like a warrior while Lialla has begun to teach Jennifer the secret magic of the Night-Threads. Together the group must strategize and navigate through a richly-imagined fantasy world of deceit, intrigue, illusion, and shape-shifting.
Chris, Jennifer, and Robin must save Rhadaz, a fantastical land that has been oppressed under false rule for too long. It is time for these three from Earth to save a planet that is new to them. It is time for them to use their powers as warrior, shape-shifter and sorceress to reinstall the long-lost Aletto to the throne that is naturally his. It is time for the power of the Night-Threads to overthrow the demonic Hell-Light as the planet demands one thing: One Land, One Duke.
Four years after Aletto, the rightful duke of Zelharri, is restored to his throne, Lialla, the outcast duchess of Zelharri must use her secret powers of Hell-Light to determine her fate.
Searching for the source of Zero, a highly addictive drug that threatens Rhadaz society, Chris finds a lethal dose of the untreatable drug in his own veins and turns to Ariadne, a reluctant sword-master, for help.
