As an old enemy resurfaces more powerful than ever, Nor will have to keep the kingdom from falling apart with the help of Prince Talin and Nor’s twin sister, Zadie. There are forces within the world more mysterious than any of them ever guessed—and they’ll need to stay alive long enough to conquer them…

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My Review: This follow up to Crown of Coral and Pearl was pretty perfect! I loved how everything turned out and just how much we got to know about this world that I have fallen in love with.  I loved all the characters and how the story ended and wrapped up.  It was ended up also left open in a way that the author could totally come back and do another story.  This one had hints of humor along with the darkness of the story which made it so well rounded.  I can not wait to read something else by this author!!
