by Violette Malan continues where Mirror Prince left off. It is much better to read that one first because this is a very intricate fantasy world. This author has such a wonderful ability to create intricate worlds and complex characters that it is always a delight to read but one has to pay pretty close attention to what is going on. I liked the twists in this book and, although it took me awhile to remember the events from the first book, once I was in the proper 'world', I enjoyed the tale.

I am very fond of this author's other series that features the characters of Dhulyn and Parno. These are fun fantasy books with swordfights and plenty of quirky characters. Start with The Sleeping God and continue from there. All of them were a lot of fun and excellent sword and magic adventures. My Night Owl Reviews are at this link.
