I think I liked this one more than book 1, I do like when that happens.




Nothing remotely Pride and Prejudice about it anymore.




Alastair and Aliza are married. He gets a contract in the far north to hunt something, and she comes along. On the way they will meet dangers, something seems to be tracking them, and when they finally arrive there is a mystery to solve, and death follows.





I get that Aliza wants to follow, but omg the dangers, you should have stayed home. I also want to learn about the silent kingdom. I really need book 3, I hope to have some answers at last.





Alastair, well I must say he was more fun when he was arrogant. Now he is so mellow.





But I liked it, and I need more now. I need to know what is awakening! 




The Battle of North Fields is over—or so Aliza Bentaine, now a Daired, fervently wants to believe. But rumors are spreading of an unseen monster ravaging the isolated Castle Selwyn on the northern border of the kingdom. When she and Alastair are summoned from their honeymoon by the mysterious Lord Selwyn, they must travel with their dragon Akarra through the Tekari-infested Old Wilds of Arle to answer his call.





They are not alone on this treacherous journey. Shadowing the dragonriders is an ancient evil, a harbinger of a dark danger of which the Worm was only a foretaste, and soon Aliza realizes the terrible truth: the real war is only beginning.

  3. I liked this more than book 1 too. I liked that it was more original, there was more of her own creation, and I loved the world.
