This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.To be honest, I did not really pay that close attention to this book and the fact that it is a sequel book. I thought it sounded interesting. This book is meant to be read in chronological order. There are just some books that you can't read as stand alone books. This is one of them. Try as I might and I did try numerous times, I could not find any connection towards the story or the characters. In fact, I found myself struggling to read more than one chapter at a time. I had to put this book down and walk away from it for a while. It was taunting me to come back to it. Finally, after a long time had passed, I picked this book up again. After reading two more chapters with no interest and no memory of what I had read, I retired this book for good.
I have not read the first book in the series, and I struggled a little with the lack of background information at the beginning. The characters and their journeys were interesting, though, and my interest increased as the story gained speed.
The ending was amazing and quite a cliffhanger! I especially appreciate that the author did close the story in a conventional way, but leaves kids imagining where the story may lead.
Even after escaping from the Southerly Kingdom, Lottie Fiske has returned to the magical Albion Isle, despite the fact that she is a wanted criminal there, because she is seeking answers about her abilities, and her parents--but war is threatening Limn, and the answers she needs seem to lie in the Northerly Kingdom, along a road full of dangers.
