I really don’t see how I can get into a review of this book without dropping some major spoilers so consider this your warning. The previous book ends with the death of the entire royal family, minus Prince Gar. The kingdom’s master magician Durm causes their deaths while possessed by a piece of the spirit [...]
It’s been a while since I read this book, and I didn’t review it at the time because after I finished this I went straight into the sequel – and after reading the sequel I was ranting like a lunatic because with the two books combined I hated the way the story ended. However, now [...]

Sure, there’s a love triangle; sure, there’s a quiet, silent guy, and a more forward adventurous one, both in love with the same girl.
