A captive prince. A desperate princess. An alliance that will shake the foundations of an empire.
In the wake of battle, Kendryk finds himself the prisoner of Empress Teodora. As war ravages Terragand, Kendryk’s guilt is matched only by his fear that he will never see his family again. Gwynneth, in possession of a valuable captive but sworn to keep him close, faces Teodora’s wrath as she waits in anguish for relief.
But when Gwynneth’s rescue comes, the empire will never be the same again.
A tide of religious upheaval sweeps across the land, bearing men and women toward their fates. The delicate joy shared by Janna and Braeden will be shattered; the king of a neighboring kingdom will walk the edge of madness; and an oath of vengeance will bind three unlikely allies together in a desperate attempt to curb Teodora’s ambitions once and for all.

This is the second book in the series.
It is just as great as the first book. Although I have classified this series as "fantasy" it truly has no classification it is unique. There are great battles which are wonderfully written, there are Princes and nobility, there is some romance and alot of tragedy.
I can see how much of an influence George RR Martin has on this author, especially with regards to killing off characters you would never think would die. I like this. Lots of surprises.
There were no editing issues that I noticed, the pace was staedy, the characters seemed real and the antagoinsts even had a bit (if not much) humanity.
I eagerly await the third book which seems to be due out this spring.
I am happy to report that this one doesn't leave the reader hanging so much at the end as did the first. (I was relieved that the next book was available LOL.)
I really like this author and am following her both...
Even better than book 1. The adventures of our cast of characters continues; Prince Kenndryk, Princess Gwyneth, the Empress, Prince Arryk, Janna, Count Orland and all the rest. Intrigue, battles, love, loss.... and be forewarned; Ms. Ochs does not hesitate killing off a main character or 2! But for those who love history, as I do, a great read!!! HAPPY READING!!!! Tim
You need to read this series in order, to know what's going on. The short chapters give you ample opportunities for a break. But the never-ending suspense will leave you unhappy to put it down! This is a clean read for those interested in the romance angle. And the beta heroes are always refreshing! I kinda liken this series in the realm of a pg-13 Game of Thrones-type genre. But Ochs is certainly churning these books out faster than Uncle George!!! ;)
I eagerly await the 3rd installment.
