After reading this, I cannot wait to pick up the second installment when it releases in September.
Joron is a prince of Blade Run, but being the second (and a bastard) son, he is not the first in line for the throne. When his older brother, Diagus, returns as their father is dying, Joron has no idea what lies ahead for him. When he learns that his father intends to leave him as the owner of the Ice Dragon Pass – much to the dismay of Diagus – Joron knows he will not be safe after his father’s death. And when Diagus negotiates a deal with King Aric of a neighboring kingdom promising the hand of their already engaged sister, Joron decides to use his rights to the pass to set things right only to find that Aric wants something else Joron can offer…
Mistaken identity, murderous plots, attempted rape, arranged marriages, secret missions, incestuous advances – there is much packed into the pages of this one. It’s easy to get caught up in this world and, like me, to be left with nothing more than a desire to know what happens next when it ends.
