Dawsyn’s fight to save the people of the Ledge is far from over in this thrilling and highly anticipated sequel to the bestselling, Ledge.
Dawsyn’s miraculous escape from the Ledge was just the beginning. In the queens’ dungeon, Dawsyn awaits her execution while reliving the death of her lover, Ryon. There is no chance of mercy.
But hope finds her in the form of rescue by her village friends. Now on the run and struggling to tame her newly-gained and greatly unstable powers, Dawsyn’s journey continues. Facing betrayal anew, she must learn patience and trust as she builds strength on all fronts, while she and her comrades recover and ready themselves for what’s to come.
As they ascend the perilous mountain slopes to the Glacian kingdom once again in a desperate attempt to save those remaining on the Ledge, Dawsyn must battle wills as well as weapons, before discovering an entirely new evil awaiting her…

“Goodness can hide amongst the bad, just as evil can wrap itself in righteousness.”
(4.5 / 5) As I first started reading, I remembered how much I love her writing. It’s the little descriptions and the wording that captures me, having me get cozy, knowing I’m in for the long haul. It’s easy to get wrapped up in her story and the characters. They have became favorites of mine and I couldn’t wait to get back to them. I read Ledge last year and really liked it. There was a small part in the end that surprised me that I was unsure about. However, reading about it in book 2, I don’t know how I wasn’t!
Dawsyn is grieving and angry at the half-Glacian Ryon’s death. Through that anger, she fuels her efforts into saving those from the Ledge. She finds new friends along the way and our old favorites join again. There were many times I’d gasp out loud or cover my mouth in surprise at events that were happening. It was never short on adventure!
I don’t want to give too much away since it’s book 2 but I have thoroughly enjoyed these books and can’t wait until book 3!
