About the book:
Since birth, Nyla has shared everything with her twin brother – royal tutors, the right to the throne of Tirragyl…even their soul. Many believe it wholly belongs to Alexor and should be returned to him regardless of the sacrifice – Nyla’s death. However, her future isn’t the only one in question.
A threat looms over the kingdom. The influential Lord Lucian intends to seize the Grotto, an underworld settlement known for harboring fugitives. And if legend is to be believed, it is also the hiding place of the most powerful of objects, the Guardian Rock.
As Nyla fights for her life, she realizes she’s not only a soul heir but also the sole hope for the kingdom’s survival.
This was a wonderful read! The pace was swift: the multiple plot lines kept me racing through the pages. The author kept the various characters, storylines, and settings separate enough to not be confusing, yet still painted them beautifully into a grander picture that has yet to fully be revealed (Can’t wait to read the next book!).
However, if I judged books solely by the cover, I don’t think I’d have picked this one up. The cover is my least favorite part of the book. It so reminds me of cheesy romance novels from the eighties! 😉
I’ve never read a story by Joan Campbell before. This is book two in The Poison Tree Path Chronicles, and while I loved reading this, I know that there are pieces that were revealed in the first book that could have helped me understand the motivations for why certain things happened. But I had no idea how much I’d enjoy this story! I thought it may be an interesting read (and it definitely was), but now I feel absolutely compelled to read the others in the series! I highly recommend you grab your own copy (and maybe try starting with the first in the series Chains of Gwyndorr) and enjoy!! 🙂
