Trouble stirs between nations and rebellion threatens Faeraven.

When Kai returns with the supposed DawnKing, Lof Shraen Elcon cannot trust that the Elder youth truly is the prophesied deliverer. Driven to prove himself, Elcon banishes the boy and embarks on a peace-keeping campaign into the Elder lands, where he falls in love with an Elder princess betrothed to another.

Sometimes the deliverance of a nation comes only through the humility of one.

Declaring his love would shame the nations, but Elcon is torn. As war approaches, Elcon̢۪s choices lead him on a journey of discovery that will either settle the lands or leave them mired in conflict. Can his kingdom ever be united, or will the consequences of his decisions forever tear asunder the fabric of Faeraven?

My thoughts:  This is the second book in the Tales of Faeraven series.  It picks up where the first left off.  I would suggest that before picking up this book, DawnSinger should be read first.  It really laid the background and foundation for the series.

This book is a fantasy about a war between good and evil.  The kingdom of Faeraven is under attack by someone who claims to have a right to the throne.  The holdings are split and both sides prepare for war.

I liked the scope of the story.  Janalyn Voigt has thought out and is able to execute the plot of the series.  Every little action has a consequence that is meaningful and contributes to events that occur later.  Because this story is big in scope, I felt that in a couple of places it was a little choppy and it took me a bit to get back into the events I was reading.  Eventually, the story would even back out and continue at a good pace.

I adored the flying horses.  The fantasy elements really appealed to me.  In my mind, I think of there being elves and humans.  I am not sure if that was what the author was trying to portray, but it makes sense to me.  It also takes me back to the books that I read as a teenager.  The fantasy genre will always have a sweet spot in my heart.

Is this a book that I am glad that I read?  Yes, it is.  Even though it was harder to follow in places the story and action are sound.  I do plan on reading the rest of the series.  I do hope that some of my favorite characters will be able to make it back to their loved ones.

The High Queen is dying...

At the royal summons, Shae mounts a wingabeast and soars through the air to the high hold of Faeraven, where all is not as it seems. Visions warn her of danger, and a dark soul touches hers in the night. When she encounters an attractive but disturbing musician, her wayward heart awakens.

But then there is Kai, a guardian of Faeraven and of Shae. Secrets bind him to her, and her safety lies at the center of every decision he makes.

On a desperate journey fraught with peril and the unknown, they battle warlike garns, waevens, ferocious raptors, and the wraiths of their own regrets. Yet, they must endure the campaign long enough to release the DawnKing and the salvation he offers into a divided land. To prevail, each must learn that sometimes victory comes only through surrender.
