This is my 88th read for the year
This is the second installment of the Glacian Trilogy. Dawsyn has been captured by the Queens and is await execution. Ryon - the hybrid Glacian is dead. As she is metting her fate, she is rescued by her new friends in the village. As she recovers from her imprisonment, the captain of the Queens guard decides to leave with Dawsyn to help her find the mage, Baltisse. They know they will need her help if they are going to defeat the Queens and defeat the Glacians who continue to take people from the ledge. What Dawsyn discovers about herself, though, will threaten to kill her before she can rescue a single person.
This was a pretty good second book. I read the first one and thought it was good enough to see where it was going. Stacey McEwan is a good writer - I like her character development and the wittyness of her characters that she weaves in a very serious story. The love story between Dawsyn and Ryon remains tame enough not to distract from the real reason for the book, which I appreciate. This one, of course, is left on a cliff hanger, so I eagerly await the third to see how it will all come together.
