My Thoughts
Ok so I was crushing hard on someone in this book, haaard! Leave Marcellus behind and run away with this guy, stat! He was the perfect trickster/fool *dreamy sigh*. You hear me, Amalia! You forget that other guy this instant!

Right. So in the last book Amalia became a Falconer, which means she controls someone with magic. She does want to make it better for those with magic, so they do not have to be forced to become falcons. She did not choose to become a Falconer either, but what can you do. And Zaira is a big mouthed...*thinks about it* Oh she has grown on me, like a wart. I like her and her big mouth.

War is coming so they go to Vaskandar to try to stop it, since Amalia's mum is a big shot and Amalia's gran is a queen in a neighboring country. I must say, bravo to creating Vaskandar. I often complain of lack of worldbuilding, but I felt Vaskandar. It was such an interesting country, I wanted even more.

Prince Ruven, grrrrr, I wanted to kick him in the nuts. Hate that guy! All that is rotten in Vaskandar.

The crush I had I kept hoping that would be a good guy, I will not say any name ;) 

Adventure, blood and magic. I can't wait to read more! Arghh, I need book 3!

Blurb
Across the border, the Witch Lords of Vaskandar are preparing for war. But before an invasion can begin, they must call a rare gathering of all seventeen lords to decide a course of action. Lady Amalia Cornaro knows that this Conclave might be her only chance to stifle the growing flames of war, and she is ready to make any sacrifice if it means saving Raverra from destruction.

Amalia and Zaira must go behind enemy lines, using every ounce of wit and cunning they have, to sway Vaskandar from war. Or else it will all come down to swords and fire.

  6. This sounds good! Plus you have a crush on one of the characters so it is worth trying for that alone.
