The saga of Erana continues in this enchanting book. The author has created a dark world that soars with striking detail. The reader is drawn quickly into the tale of the sisters and the moral question as to what would you do to save the life of someone you love? Would you betray even yourself? As part of the Erana series this book stands alone as a solid read and also is an excellent part of the whole that carries the story forward. The exciting final battle brings some success and leaves, of course, more unanswered questions. It leaves the reader wanting more. Fans of Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings will love this book. This Erana series cries out to be made into a television series. If I have one problem, it is with the extreme detail of the 'bad guys' doing evil to the good but when the good take down the baddies - it is brief and unfulfilling. To put up with Hendrick being the biggest scum bag I have seen in a long time was bothersome. To have this piece of trash snuffed out without at least a paragraph of him suffering and seeing how much it hurt him and how destroyed he felt was needed. My Rating: 4 stars
