BY BECKY WALLACE
Johanna and Rafi are in a race against time to save their country before a power-mad Keeper destroys everything they hold dear in the “enthralling magical world” (Cinda Williams Chima, author of The Heir Chronicles) introduced in The Storyspinner.
As the last of the royal line, Johanna is the only person who can heal a magical breach in the wall that separates her kingdom of Santarem from the land of the Keepers, legendary men and women who wield elemental magic. The barrier protects Santarem from those Keepers who might try to take power over mere humans…Keepers who are determined to stop Johanna and seize the wall’s power for themselves.
And they’re not the only ones. As the duchys of Santarem descend into war over the throne, Johanna relies more than ever on the advice of her handsome companion, Lord Rafael DeSilva. But Rafi is a duke too, and his people come first. As their friendship progresses into the beginnings of a tender relationship, Johanna must wonder: is Rafi looking out for her happiness, or does he want the throne for himself?
With war on the horizon, Johanna and Rafi dodge treacherous dukes and Keeper assassins as they race to through the countryside, determined to strengthen the wall before it’s too late…even if it means sacrificing their happiness for the sake of their world.

I'm super excited about this book :D I aaadored The Storyspinner so much when I read it last year. But that ending was all kinds of mean. Hmph. And ever since then I have been dying to read this sequel. <3 A bit heartbroken that I never got an ARC.. sniffs. So now just waiting for March to arrive :D I will read it right away once it arrives. So excited. Though, I can't help but mention it, I do not like this cover. At all. And that is so disappointing. Sniffs. But I know that the inside will be perfect even so :) Can't wait. Waaait. I have gotten an eARC of this book :D Eee! Now I just need to hurry up and re-read book one :)
What are you waiting for on this light Wednesday?
Glad you have an eARC! So you won't have to wait too long. And to be honest? I don't like the cover either. The colors are gorgeous but the way his profile is arranged does no favors. That glare is not brooding or mysterious or attractive in any way! Ew! LOL.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy this one, Carina! (Despite the ugly cover hehehe.)

I hear such amazing things about this series and I need to read it SOON. I met the author last year and she is just adorable. I hope you love this second book as much as the first, Carina!ReplyDelete

Oh I had heard of The Storyspinner, but I didn't realise that it was part of a series, I'm glad that you don't have to wait too long for the release of this book! Great pick! :)ReplyDelete
Ah, I wouldn't have connected this book as a sequel to the Storyspinner if you had not mentioned it because the cover does not match... I'm not a huge fan of this cover either, but it's good to hear you are so stoked to read this one anyway!ReplyDelete
I've heard good things about this series so I may have to check out book one! I hope you enjoy this one. :)ReplyDelete
