Back Cover Blurb:

It begins again! Skylee Porter thinks the worst is over. She has faced her greatest fear, the monstrous black-eyed Brinfrost and survived with the help of Chrism, her shape-shifting sister. Sky even had the courage to finally admit her true feelings to Will.

But something has changed. The three people she trusts the most are acting strange. Will seems distant. Her talkative sister has clammed up. Even Airon is keeping secrets.

Soon, Sky discovers the leaders of the Primortus have plans for her. Then, to her dismay, they threaten to take away her magical book. The Humusara, the very thing that tethers her to the world she so desperately wants to protect. And now, the earth is trembling again. Could there be another Day of Disaster?

Dark powers are at work. Two prophecies loom on the horizon. One declares she’s the hope of humankind. While the other proclaims she’ll destroy us all.

Sky’s destiny awaits her…

My Review:

What an intricately crafted story. The authors take us much more deeply into the world of the Primortus with this novel. Secrets are revealed as the audience is given a front row seat to the events, adventures, and crisis that follow the Second Born. This story is very detailed yet easy to read. The upbeat writing style really highlights the action of the tale. The vividly picturesque descriptions bring everything to the forefront in a larger than life manner.

The character development in this novel is absolutely breathtaking. The characters are simultaneously larger than life and completely realistic. The authors make the supernatural elements seem not only plausible but also completely possible. The banter between the characters both makes you laugh and really lets you get to know them better. I appreciate that they are continuing to grow as individuals, and not just remaining stagnant. The dialogue is fantastic. The variety of different dialects really highlights the fact that this is a global story.

This was a fantastic addition to what is rapidly becoming my new go-to series for the genre. It’s a must read for fantasy & dystopian lovers alike.
