I eagerly looked forward to the second book in this series and it did not disappoint. The world building and fantasy elements only got richer and tastier, like a decadent cheesecake full of surprise flavors and unique pairings. I devoured it almost too quickly, leaving me to wonder if I’d get to experience a third course set in this world. I hope so, because there are so many adventures that could happen, with allies new and old. I’m not sure the geopolitical conflicts are eased, but we do end the book with a sense of closure and a feeling that everything will indeed, turn out, well served.

Trying to avoid spoilers with this review, so I will leave it short and sweet. A very excellent book to read, indeed.
