Find the heir, win the crown.
The curse is finally broken, but Prince Rhen of Emberfall faces darker troubles still. Rumors circulate that he is not the true heir and that forbidden magic has been unleashed in Emberfall. Although Rhen has Harper by his side, his guardsman Grey is missing, leaving more questions than answers.
Win the crown, save the kingdom.
Rumored to be the heir, Grey has been on the run since he destroyed Lilith. He has no desire to challenge Rhen–until Karis Luran once again threatens to take Emberfall by force. Her own daughter Lia Mara sees the flaws in her mother’s violent plan, but can she convince Grey to stand against Rhen, even for the good of Emberfall?
The heart-pounding, compulsively readable saga continues as loyalties are tested and new love blooms in a kingdom on the brink of war.
In the sequel to New York Times bestselling A Curse So Dark and Lonely, Brigid Kemmerer returns to the world of Emberfall in a lush fantasy where friends become foes and love blooms in the darkest of places.
My rating: 5/5
Firstly, in my opinion, the book cover is simple yet detailed! It does not give justice on how good the story actually is. This book is just simply amazing! Even though, it is a series each book has a different story entirely!
Secondly, this book is brilliant in writing about survival. The main characters Grey and Lia Mara, are amazing in staying alive at many situations that they are thrown off. Both of these characters are just utterly interesting to read! My favourite would be Lia Mara, this is because, she is such an amazing young princess with poise, bravery and intelligence. Most importantly, she is an avid reader!
Thirdly, this book taught me the importance of family. This is showed on both sides of the main characters. Family is important no matter what. No one shall take importance of power and wealth over family. As blood is thicker than water.
Fourthly, the plot was absolutely gripping. I managed to finish this book in a day! I can’t wait to read the next book in this series! I need it now! The ending was also very unexpected which will throw readers off their expectation!
Lastly, this book has such an amazing world building. From the first book in the Cursebreaker series, which is A Curse So Dark and Lonely the world building gets better in expanding it.
Below are some quotes that I love from the book.
Do not fault yourself for choices you believed were right in the moment.
Strength and skill are not matters of luck.
It is not weakness to wish for peace.
Not every problem can be solved by the edge of a sword.
Ah, yes, the most dangerous person at the party is always the girl sitting alone with a book.
Choices are never easy. There are good and bad options, but the most dangerous is to not make any choice at all.
To desire adoration is to make yourself vulnerable.
I believe you can only push people down so far before they will rise up and rebel.
