Just loved it!

This is the second in the Isain series and I liked it even better than the first one. Such a challenging premise that a prince and princess from, formerly, waring countries should marry and try to get along to help mend the breach and form an alliance against a mutual enemy.

Gabrielle and Alec are both strong personalities but also hold unswerving loyalty to their countries and their duty. This loyalty they slowly also give to each other as they discover misconceptions each have held about the other's people. But they don't have a nice quiet time to get to know each other, Gabrielle is attacked several times by those who don't want to form an alliance and Alec is kept busy fighting a magical monster that is attacking outlying villages.

As Gabrielle and Alec learn to trust each other and care about each other their own people slowly start to do that same. Day by day a true alliance is formed. So very captivating and satisfying to read!

The narrator, Carolyn Kashner, did a tremendous job with all the voices and especially Gabrielle's accent. So enjoyable to listen to.

I received this audio book from the author but the opinions are my own.

A sequel that's as good as the first!

I love it when the second book in a series is as engaging as the first book and this one definitely was! It took me a little bit into the book to figure out the relationship to the first book. But once I did, it was very intriguing. I loved that it was another story in the family. Serena Clarke has a way of developing the characters so you feel like you really know them. I found myself getting frustrated with them, laughing with them, and wanting to fix their situation! I always know when I've found a particularly good audio book because I found myself looking for times when I can listen to it throughout the day. The narrator also portrayed the characters excellently. I loved the accents she gave to each character. Thanks for a great book Serena Clarke!
