More danger arrives with a royal delegation to the forest realm, sweeping Telyn back into court intrigue and the sights of a murderous lord. Mithrais may be forced to choose between his service to the Wood or the obligations of his royal blood.
As Telyn's bond with Mithrais grows, she is torn between her love for him and the freedom of a wandering bard's life. But when dark magic plunges the Wood into chaos, she must balance the two halves of her heart-or the Fates may take Mithrais from her forever.

Book one opened the doors to a new world and gave me answers to questions that I will find that I needed to get through book two without being confused. There was more of the vivid imagery, magic song and music, the wood, the realm, the court, the secrets, and the lord wanting nothing more than for Telyn to be no more. I even got me so surprise characters that I love in any book I can get them in. Not telling. Life for this young bard and her lifemate has taking on new lines of battel. Stay in the wood. Stay together. Stay in court. Stay. Stay. Stay. The life of a bard was to travel, see the world, make music, spread the lyrics. Telyn has so many decisions to make and not much time to make them. Mithrais has his own set of problems to sort through. The time has come for them to make their choices. Choices that has an effect on more than just themselves. Beautifully written. Well crafted, molded, and solidified. This was high fantasy at its finest. There magic, mystery, fantasy, mythical aspects and more. I highly recommend reading book one first then book two. You will get so much more out of the two of them together. Book two brings together what you find in book one so magically.
