Synopsis from Goodreads: Ever since Nor was forced to go to a nearby kingdom in her sister’s place, she’s wanted nothing more than to return to the place and people she loves. But when her wish comes true, she soon finds herself cast out from both worlds, with a war on the horizon.
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…
My Review: I loved this finish to the duology and I was sad to know that it was the end. I loved Nor in book one and even more so in book two. I also loved the complexity of the supporting characters and felt they were all very well developed. The only thing that bothered me about the book was the relationship between Nor and Talin, I get that the author was trying to create some tension with it but I'm just weary of that. I thought it ended well though and overall I was okay with it. In the end I loved this book, though the first one was better, and I will miss these characters and this world.
