Amidst sweeping revolution, Naed must rally his people, fend off assassination attempts, and fight against claims he's a traitor. Then he discovers everything about his lineage and family is a lie. And his beloved belongs to another.

With lives and a kingdom at stake, Raell and Naed must find a way to protect the innocent and save their love.

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.
