Booklist - 03/01/2020 Harper, a girl from the mortal world, helped to break the curse holding the kingdom of Emberfall and Rhen, its prince, captive, but there's no happily ever after in sight. The breaking of the curse has unleashed a political maelstrom, complicating relations between Emberfall and its distrustful neighbors. And Grey, Rhen's guardsman and most loyal companion, has vanished—he has discovered the true heir to Emberfall and wants to spare Rhen the truth. But to Rhen, it seems as though Grey has betrayed him. And when Grey appears to ally with the queen of Syhl Shallow and her daughters, including the cunning Lia Mara, those fears are confirmed. While Harper and Rhen were the primary focus of A Curse So Dark and Lonely (2019), Grey and Lia Mara narrate the bulk of this second series entry, which leaves the Beauty and the Beast–style narrative in the first book behind for a more Arthurian story line here. Action packed, deeply romantic, and more focused than its predecessor, this volume creates more problems than it solves, keeping readers eagerly on the hook for the next installment. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
