The Northern Queen: The new sequel to Kim Vandervort's critically-acclaimed first novel, The Song and the Sorceress. Two short years have passed since Princess Ki'leah Alrhiane Del'Sivahr solved the ancient riddle that prevented Lyarra Val'rahimir from gaining a dangerous foothold on Si'vad-hardly enough time to prepare for the responsibilities of ruling a kingdom. Nevertheless, with her mother ailing from the same illness that felled her father, Ki'leah must assume her birthright as Queen of Si'vad. When evidence reaches her of an ancient threat gathering on her southern border, Ki'leah is forced to make a difficult and dangerous choice: one that could irrevocably alter the futures of everything-and everyone-she holds dear.

I had to read this book after reading the first in the series, THE SONG AND THE SORCERESS. It has been two years since Ki'leah has returned from defeating Lyarra, the ancient evil sorceress, and two years since she has seen the man she loves, Breyveran, the King of Sahtamor. Her father has died, and she is to be crowned Queen of Si'vad. She is very excited to see her love again, since many monarchs are coming to her coronation. Breyveran doesn't come but her brother, Delveran, does. Ki'leah is disappointed, but not for long, because she soon finds out that she and her country are in danger. THE NORTHERN QUEEN has a lot of adventure with Britta and Erich having to fight fires and the coming of another Rahar, who is waking in the south of Si'vad. There are some new characters, who again are very interesting, and Ki'leah must use every bit of wisdom and cunning that she has. There is political intrigue, and you don't know who is evil and who is good. I enjoyed this book, and since the story left you hanging, I can't wait until the third one comes out. This is too good of a series to miss, so read these books right away!
