Book hangover #2
I loved following Illyria, Bastine and Eamon and meeting Kyan, and others. The love story goes strong in this book as well, I'm happy that I didn't have to wait for other books to come out, I was able to sit down and read the whole series in a week! I love how the author goes into detail to let you feel every emotion, every fear, every ounce of longing and anger. Watching Illyria defy her destiny and follow her heart was incredible. Excellent read!
