Necromancy, romance, court intrigue's just another day in the kingdom of Aarastad.
This is Book Two in the Agents of the Rune Stone Ring Trilogy, but it also contains a complete story that can be enjoyed on its own.

Book 2! Been meaning to continue this series but I'm glad I waited until the updated and final version was ready. 

Here we follow our team. They have a lot on their plate: their old enemy is reaching out from beyond death to seek revenge, a seductive prince will stop at nothing to make Freyja his own, and court intrigue that never seems to end. Just another day in the kingdom of Aarastad. 

Oh, Freyja. I still like her BUT I was so annoyed with her. Sighs. Don't want to spoil anything......I GET IT, but I also wanted to shake her! Even though there were times I wanted to shake her...I am enjoying watching her go from that girl to a woman of the people. She has the makings of a great queen.  Ambrose is a saint but there were times I wanted to shake him too. Young love.

Speaking of which! The author has such an array of fun characters. You can't help but love all of them and hate the baddies.

Now there was a chunk of slow bits that had me itching wanting things to hurry up. That could've been a me-issue. I was anxious for a certain issue to be resolved asap. 

Other than that I really enjoyed this one. Between our lovers and the drama of court and necromancy, I was scared for everyone. Edge of my seat! I didn't want to put this book down but darn adult life ;) 

UGH that ending. My heart!

Overall, I enjoyed this one. I can't wait to get to book 3. I need to know what is going to happen next for our team!! A slow moment that had me anxious but overall, 4 stars. Def recommend this. I would encourage reading book 1 first.
