Publisher's Summary

Merisande has returned home to heal from her harrowing ordeal in the fae kingdom. Sir Avry continues to write to her in the hope that he can spark a romance between them. Meanwhile, the king appoints Avry as his successor. Avry has no choice but to accept the title of king-in-waiting, despite his fear that it’ll ruin his chances with free-spirited Merisande. 

His personal issues are soon pushed aside when an old enemy returns, bent on destruction. The fae king, having survived the ruin of his kingdom, has sworn revenge and sends The White, a giant, shape-shifting bird, to attack Avry’s people. 

The White has been subjected to centuries of mistreatment by her handlers, known as binders. And the danger she poses cannot be understated. As Avry desperately tries to find a way to save his people from the evils of the fae king, Merisande’s sudden disappearance only adds to his worries. But soon an unexpected ally appears as the fae prince returns from afar, intent on righting his father’s wrongs. 

Has he come in time? Or has his father unleashed a power that threatens to destroy their world forever?

An exciting sequel to Beneath the Roots!

Mer is home with her loving father and brother, recovering from the horrific experiences she endured while in the fae kingdom. Sir Avry is kept far from her as the king engages him in duties aimed to keep him close and to keep him safe. The king's legitimate successor would not rule the kingdom well, so he intends to select Sir Avry as his successor.

Avry fears that the very independent Mer would resist marrying him as king. His life is at risk too. Some would stop at absolutely nothing to preserve the traditional line of succession. Then the crazed fae king unleashes a fearsome and colossal White Bird to exact revenge on the kingdom. Mer gets swept away through this conflict. Avry is once again driven to find and rescue the woman he loves.

I loved this book! I was longing for Mer's family to be lifted out of their utter poverty. I could barely stand the sadness in Avry, loving someone he feared he could never have. The back story of The White Bird and the centuries of her mistreatment was heartbreaking. The political intrigue and shocking back-stabbing was riveting. The father-son-like-love between Avry and the king was touching.

The ending was a-m-a-z-i-n-g! There was a satisfying and exultant climax to the story. Bravo to W.K. Greyling!

White Bird

This is a fantastic read. I love the world building and how well the characters are brought out. I felt as I listened that I could actually see the scenes as there described. The Narrator and Author have done a fantastic job. There are twists and turns that I didn't see coming. I definitely recommend.

A Fairytale

This story is wonderful. It has a fairytale feel to it, but it is so much more. I have to say, this hero work harder than any hero I have read about to win the girl. The adventure was original, and the narration was perfect. This is a story that I would love to see on the big screen. With winged fae, shape shifters, castles, kings, knights, and a damsel in distress it is an adventure worth taking.

I loved this story and highly recommend it.

Fantastic Series!

This is an extremely well written story. There's a different narrator on book 2 but he does a wonderful job.

The second awesome instalment

Really enjoyed the first book and this one was really good as well. I like the unpredictable nature of the storyline and the strong female character. This one features a giant bird, an assassin, two sick kings and the dreaming place. A sequel not to be missed.
