Disclosure: I was sent this for review
Brandan and Joachim have returned from the brink of Hell, but everyone questions if they are truly healed and one with Asha.
As each prince tries to readjust to life, they must face the funeral of their father and their missing mother.
They each take on the responsibility of ruling a country with new wives by their sides, but can they and the countries survive the trials that will ensue because of their choices?
Book Two in this series starts out right where Palace of Twelve Pillars leaves off, and it even includes some recapping of the previous book. I would suggest reading both, since there are a few details that you wouldn’t quite get if you started with the second book. The brothers have grown a bit more into themselves, and are now faced with burying their father, and the fact that their mother is missing. There are plots against each other, against others, with action and double crossing and just a little bit of mystery thrown in. I caught on quickly with what was going on, and a little bit on where the story was headed.
Since this is Christian fiction, geared towards the younger age, there isn’t any sex, gratuitous violence, and clean language. The allegorical theme does continue with this book. There’s magic and a bit more action in this boook than it’s predecessor, and it sets up for the third volume of this saga.
