  • If Zaria Fierce had her say, being a princess would mean you’d never have to wait for news. In the eight months since Olaf tricked her, Zaria has felt a near constant mixture of restlessness, listlessness, and hopelessness. When the time comes to fix past mistakes, she is more than ready to climb aboard the ship sailing towards the giants. Summertime in Norway promises many more adventures, but also many more perils… something sinister lurks beneath the surface following her every move, haunting her, disturbing her dreams, and stealing her peace. Can Zaria figure out what it is and stop it before it’s too late?

My Thoughts:

This takes place a few months after book 1. Zaria and her friends have to find a certain sword in order to rescue Hart. Along the way they face a multitude of magical creatures and Zaria is plagued by something very sinister. What is following her in the shadows?

I really enjoyed book 1 but have to say that Keira Gillett has upped her game with this installment. This is darker, scarier and more action packed than the previous one and I ended up listening to it in a day! 

Once again, the authors characters are extremely well written and developed. They all evolve and grow throughout the story and you can't help but root for Zaria! Poor Zaria, though. She has a sense that something evil is following her and it's even invading her dreams. She's also being very hard on herself and shouldering the blame for being tricked in book 1. 

The plot was fast paced, entertaining and engaging.There is never a dull moment when it comes to the wonderful word that the author has created. Richly detailed and totally captivating, this series has the potential to be great. I'm realy looking forward to more adventures from Zaria and her friends. 

Michele Carpenter did a great job again. She has a load of different tones and voices for all the characters and it's easy to distinguish who's talking.
