Master storyteller Sharon Shinn created the thrilling and enchanting world of Welce in her acclaimed novel Troubled Waters. Return with her to that elemental universe in this tale of secrecy, romance, and a battle for power...
Josetta is a princess of one of the Five Families. But she is far from the throne, so she is free to spend her days working in the poorest sections of the city.
Rafe Adova, an outcast since he was born, lives the life of a career gambler in those slums. He has no ambition other than cheating at the card tables - until the night he decides to help a girl named Corene, who looks like she's stumbled into the wrong bar.
She, too, is a princess - sister to Josetta, who finds her with Rafe. He fascinates her. Josetta has never encountered anyone like him - someone seemingly devoid of elemental blessings.
He is drawn to her, though he thinks they are unlikely to ever meet again - but their connection grows strong when she nurses him back to health after he is assaulted by foreign mercenaries. And when they learn the reason he's being hunted, they know that the truth about his history could endanger not only their love but also their very lives...

I was so excited to see this book. I love 'Troubled Waters'. It's one of my go to books when I'm looking for something good to listen to, and I always wanted to know what happened afterwards. This was definitely a worthy sequel.
The only downside was that Ms. Van Dyke didn't pronounce certain words and names the same way as she did in the first book and I found that a bit jarring.
Nice contiune of Troubled Waters
