In the second volume of the Fourth Talisman series, Nazafareen’s path takes a twist, setting her on a journey into the heart of the maelstrom…
It’s been a thousand years since the Avas Vatras tried to burn the world to ashes. A thousand years since they were imprisoned in the brutal wasteland called the Kiln. But revenge is a dish best served cold—even, apparently, by the children of fire.
In Delphi, Nazafareen joins forces with the followers of Dionysius to rescue her friends from the Oracle’s dungeons and seek out the three talismans whose extraordinary powers stopped the Vatras before. With her own breaking magic growing stronger by the day, she must walk a razor’s edge to control her volatile temper. And if the Vatras find the talismans first, their last hope will die.
In the frozen wastes of the Valkirin range, Victor strikes an uneasy bargain with bitter enemies to keep his tenuous grip on the Maiden Keep. The other holdfasts are coming for him. But it’s an enemy within Val Moraine’s walls that may prove to be his downfall.
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Welcome back to a world full of fantasy, magic, and I am going to go with insane people. I have to say that Kat has done it again writing an excellent novel that will really keep the reader hooked until they hit the last page wishing there was more. It picks up right after the events of book one which ended in a cliff-hanger. The chapters bounce around a group of main characters in such a way that we get a view of what is going on in all the different parts of the new world which is slowly building towards a giant war. Things are really getting good now and I was upset when the book ended as I really wanted to know what happened next. This series is a must read for fans of fantasy novels that takes place in a different world then ours. I really enjoyed reading it so I give it 4/5 stars.
