Synopsis from Goodreads: The doorway between the magical Visempirum and the human world has been reopened. Paladin are once more living in the citadel where Zuhra and Inara grew up completely isolated by the magical hedge that trapped them there. Amidst the brewing conflict between the Paladin and humans looms the threat of Barloc, who has stolen Inara’s immense power and continues to elude the Paladin who are desperately searching for him.
In this sequel to Sisters of Shadow and Light, Inara and Zuhra must navigate the treacherous paths of self-discovery, their love for each other, and for the boys who have captured their hearts. Together, they search for the strength within themselves to bridge the divide between the two worlds they inhabit, even as war threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—they love.
My Review: This sequel picked up right where the first one left off and I was happy to see it was told in both perspectives. In this book we get a lot more of Inara's point of view and it was nice to see more of that. This book is a pretty somber book and that took a little bit of a push to get through. The story starts off with a ton of grief and nearly each character is suffering from some loss. Although the author did a great job of accurately portraying grief and not just brushing it off, it also made for a not that fun of a read. That being said there were some really great things about the book. I adore the bond between Inara and Zuhra. You can't help but cheer them on. I also adore the Gryphons and all that goes along with them. Overall I did really enjoy the book.
