This is the second book in the Dark Shores series and I loved every page. I liked the first book but this one is by far my favorite. You can technically read this book first. Both books are told during the same timeline.
This story is about Teriana’s best friend, Lydia and a new character Killian. Both characters are on the run. One from an attempted assassination and the other is a disgraced commander. I loved watching these two interact. It’s a very slow burn romance but that fits the book, so I can’t complain.
This story centers a lot on politics. There are so many betrayals and a whole lot of scheming. It added so much tension between all the characters and it had me sitting on the edge of my seat and completely unable to put this book down.
If you’ve never read one of Jensen’s stories then you are in for a treat. This world is so dynamic and the characters are all beautifully real. I highly recommend if you love an epic fantasy!
Thank you Netgalley and Tor Teen for the early e-book!
