Beneath the mountain, the king’s reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cécile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king’s power. Or his manipulation.
Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high.
To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cécile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted…
Rating: I will be giving this book a 4 out of 5 stars. My heart is so full of emotion as I am writing this review. This book put me through so many ups and downs that it isn’t even funny. This book picked up right were the first book Stolen Songbird left off. To see my review of Stolen Songbird click here. The world that the author created in the first book is expanded in this book and the relationships that were developed in the first book as well are put to the test. This book has some mystery elements to it and I truly enjoyed that as well as the twists and turns within the book. If you have already read the first book and are thinking about reading the second book, just do it. I am so glad I did, even though my emotional state is not at its best because of this book. I can not wait to get my hands on the third book.
