Publisher's Summary

In the wake of a 20-year war, the people of Lucernia struggle to believe their former enemies aren’t demon-loving savages. However, that’s easy compared to the more alarming change: accepting their nation now has two queens. 

Many citizens in a land devoted to the God of Purity view the love between Kitlyn and Oona as unnatural, but the young women have earned guarded acceptance in the wake of their heroic deeds. Alas, unrest stirs in the shadows. Worse, Oona thinks the Talomir family line is cursed. All who have worn the crown before her have met with untimely deaths.

Much work lies ahead for the new queens in helping the kingdom recover from a conflict older than its rulers. The people are restless and hurting, trust in the crown is tenuous, and the king of Evermoor demands reparations. That two women should love each other may be the last little piece to hurl the nation into rebellion.

Mysterious forces attacking towns close to the border with Evermoor stoke tensions even further, threatening a relapse to war. Their crowns not even warm, Kitlyn and Oona set off to find the source of the raids and stabilize the nation...hoping to stay ahead of an ancient curse.

Long and meaty Plot

The story line picked up right where the last book ended which I really appreciated. Kit and Oona grow as individuals and as a couple. There are those that have difficulty accepting them. The one most troubling comes from within the Castle grounds and is a thorn in their sides to say the least. They finally explore on their own to find out what is causing unusual deaths from some unexpected creatures that are not well known. Kit and Oona learn more about their counter parts on the other side and find they are not so different from themselves. Oona learns more about her Mother and it's not a pleasant experience. Oona and Kit also learn more about their abilities and I enjoyed how that unfolded throughout the story. Overall this was a well written story and very enjoyable. I really liked the magical aspects and I am glad to see the two characters grow as people and finally get away from the Castle for a great majority of the book. I hope to see more magical experiences in future books because there is so much more mystery out there for Kit and Oona yet to be discovered. Great job again Matthew!
