“Fear to the fearless. Hope to the hopeless. Mercy to those who hate you. Death to those who love you. That is your destiny, Princess of Kale, Princess of Koloso, heir to both.” – Prophecy of the Kalian Twins The struggle for the throne intensifies as twin Princesses Ameria and Mariana are forced to contend with their bitter rivalry and haunted past. In this sequel to Heir to Kale, the sisters learn that they must first expose the secrets of their past before they can begin to unveil their shadowed destiny. Awaiting the Temple bout which will determine her fate, Princess Mariana struggles to unite a Kingdom long bereft of leadership. She must navigate a labyrinth of rival families, powerful lords, and the ever-widening rift between those who serve the Temples and those who do not. Unprepared and still grieving the loss of her mentor, Mariana must decide for herself what is right for the kingdom and who, if anyone, can be trusted. Meanwhile, Princess Ameria is more determined than ever to discover the true identity of her father’s killer and is willing to risk everything in order to find the answers she seeks. Embarking upon a quest which takes her from gleaming Temples to darkened castles, she endeavors to learn the truth about her family, the Prophecy, and the future of the Kingdom. Eventually turning to her estranged grandfather, the powerful and dangerous Lord Riccard, Ameria uncovers a truth about her family’s past from which will threaten to challenge the very foundations of her beliefs. However, as the sisters come closer to revealing their past and the prophecy which haunts their future, the wraiths watch from the shadows, an ever-present reminder that time is running out and that the fight for the throne looms upon the horizon.

RATING: 5 STARS
As I open my kindle and read the first few lines I am immediately transported back to this magical world. This book follows straight on from Heir to Kale and in this book we get to know the back story and all the questions we had from the first book were answered in this one. We were also reaquainted with all the drama from the temples and the lives of Mary, Kyle, Ameria and the rest of the students as well as defendants and we also see the introduction of some new characters and there was also a few twists one I definately didn't see coming. I loved this story and Oh My what an ending! We are left with a massive cliff hanger which will have you begging for more. I have loved the last book as well as this book and I can't tell you how excited I was to learn that there is gonna be a 3rd book.
I received this book for an honest review.
