This is what epic fantasy book lovers rejoice over: sweeping stories, intertwined plot lines, interesting characters. Johannes provides all of these in this second book of the Crown of Tolem series.
Lady Raell and her embattled beau, Naed, certainly find themselves in the middle of political intrigue, war, and family drama. I thoroughly enjoyed the character of Lady Raell the most. She was not a fainting flower and held her own in this story. The narrative seemed to drag with the amount of detail at times and the sheer amount of characters was sometimes daunting and confusing. But the main story line, with all of the twists and turns, kept me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next.
Fans of fantasy will enjoy the journey in these pages.
