"Return to the magical Kingdoms of the Void. Laenan Kite repelled the Lords of Nightkeep, but he could not destroy them.Now, with deadly spells igniting across Haven, and the queen's life at risk, Kite must counter a new threat to the Realm of Dreams - and discover who's behind it. Fingers are being pointed at the whiter-than-white Lord Rylam. He's got no lands but bags of loot, so he'd definitely be up for the kind of mayhem and murder that leads to sudden vacancies in the throne room. But Kite's not sure it's that simple - and you better hope his instincts are right. Because if he goes after the wrong guy . we'll be sucked into the kind of nightmare that Nightkeep can only dream of! Electric pacing, sizzling dialogue and sparkling humour are the corner stones of this visually stunning sequel to the wonderful MIRROR DREAMS." Again I cant believe this was written by a teenager-- stunning work and she only seems to gets better with each one. Well worth the price

Sequel to Mirror Dreams which was written when the author was just 14 and it's sequel was written a year later and there is a certain amount of maturity that's creeping in. Laenan Kite wants some rest, some respite from his constant having to care for the world he lives in but he can't, there's something going on that just doesn't make sense and he's not sure who to trust. Once again he's into the breach. His wisecracking has lessened but it doesn't feel completely wrong that it has. He feels the pressure of responsibility and he feels that he has to try to fix what's wrong so that he can go back to having a quiet life.It's not as good as Mirror Dreams, there's occasionally a feeling of reluctance, that the story of Laenan was written and this was just trying to remake the magic and not quite hitting the spot, still it's a good read, a nice revisit with friends and I would read more by this author (a good thing as I have two of the Horatio Lyle books queued at the moment)
