Content is dark, tragic and grisly at times. There are some disturbing torture scenes, plague and famine are never pretty, and some of the "bad" guys in this tale are truly evil and depraved. The pace is fast though, alot happens and the story clips right along. There is also a cliffhanger ending, unlike book one, so it is a good thing that you can go straight on to book three! This book is not the type that will "wow" you but it is a good read and a great adventure. If you enjoy reluctant heroines, animal companions, do not object to dark content and want a story where there are more questions then there are answers, this is well worth a read.

this one flagged a little for me, I possiblyt would have enjoyed it more if I had read it right after the prequel.

Reisil is still trying to work out where her loyalty lies and how to control her magic, in the middle of an epidemic her ability to heal is failing. However her skills seems to have mutated into killing. She is now a pawn who doesn't want to be, but how can she keep her independence when a lot of things are happening.

It's a bridging novel. Interesting but not as good as the first one. I hope the next book will be as good as the first. ( )

Book description
A year has passed since Reisil's arrival in Koduteel. Instead of receiving honor and respect, she is met with chill suspicion. The nobility fear her power - comparing her to the wizards who devastated Kodu Riik in the recent war. Others wish to use her as a pawn. And now her fellow Ahalad-kaslane doubt her loyalty - particularly when Reisil's healing magic fails to save the majority of Kodu Riikians who are dying from a rising plague.

At a time when Kodu Riik is decimated by plague, famine and war, its enemies are beginning to move. But Reisil is startled to discover that although she has lost her power to heal, she is now filled with a surging new ability - to destroy.
