This book was definitely a step up from the first in the series because it didn’t try to do as much, and as a result not only had a more cohesive story, but also was much easier to follow. I would recommend readers like me who didn’t enjoy the first book as much to hang in there; the series gets better.
Meira has finally freed her Winterians from the grasp of the Decay. The only problem is that the war has left her enormously indebted to Noam, the Cordelian king who wants nothing more than unlimited access to magic so that he can rule all of the kingdoms.
One day, Winterians are digging in their mines when they uncover a magic chasm more powerful than the likes of anything seen before. Meira is hesitant to unlock the chasm, afraid that too much power will cause the Decay to take control of rulers like last time, but Noam is desperate to get his hands on the magic that the chasm may provide.
Noam then orders that Meira travel to the other kingdoms to recover the keys that may unlock the chasm, under a ruse of forging alliances with other rulers. But when Meira decides to make that ruse a reality in order to fight Noam, she may be endangering not only her life, but the lives of her people as well.
Will Meira succeed?
