Publisher's Summary

In this breathtaking sequel to the instant New York Times bestseller For the Wolf, Red's sister Neve struggles to escape a mysterious land of twisted roots, lost gods, and mountains made of bone—and the only clues to her rescue are a magic mirror and a dark prince who wants to bring the whole thing crumbling down.

The First Daughter is for the Throne

The Second Daughter is for the Wolf...

Red and the Wolf have finally contained the threat of the Old Kings, but at a steep cost. Red's beloved sister Neve, the First Daughter is lost in the Shadowlands, an inverted kingdom where the vicious gods of legend have been trapped for centuries and the Old Kings have slowly been gaining control. But Neve has an ally, though it's one she'd rather never have to speak to again: the rogue king Solmir. 

Solmir wants to bring an end to the Shadowlands and he believes helping Neve may be the key to its destruction. But to do that, they will both have to journey across a dangerous landscape in order to find a mysterious Heart Tree, and finally to claim the gods' dark, twisted powers for themselves.

Almost perfect

This was as good if not better than Book 1. My only request would have been to include a forward the summarized the previous book. I found the beginning difficult since it had been a year since I had read the first book. I remembered the story well enough though the names had faded. I was frustrated and lost.

A riveting, stay at the edge of your seat read!

To the writer,

I really enjoyed reading this sequel! I could barely wait to start another chapter! It had everything you could ask for in a fantasy book, magic, love, and an incredible journey. The use of descriptive words really put me there with the characters. I would recommend this book to anyone ! 10/10 in my book! Loved it! Can't wait to see what else you write in the future. Looking forward to foxglove King next!

Love story wrapped in a story of love

I was pleasantly surprised to find the sequel of For the Wolf had been released, and devoured For the Throne in two days.
I love the narrator’s, Ines de Castillo’s, voice and the unadulterated, yet not overwhelming rawness of life she brings to the stories she reads for. She’s how I came to this author and story to begin with, and now as I wipe the tears away at this story’s conclusion, I’m left with that full aching for more, but also oddly satisfied with its ending. Something that doesn’t often happen. More often I’m left dissatisfied with book’s endings, but this author wrung the details of this story thoroughly, neatly tying all the threads into a satisfying conclusion.
Though I admit I would gladly come back for more should she decide to continue this tale of magic and the kind of love that runs deeper than deep, bright and true.

Snow White and Rose Red

Where the first book, 'For the Wolf' was a combination of Beauty and the Beast and Red Riding Hood, this second book is a fantastically conceived Snow White and Rose Red story.

Neve is trapped in the shadowlands with the dead king, Solmir, who tried to use her to bring back all the dead kings. Neve learns Solmir was trying to destroy the kings, to prevent them from destroying the world. Neve and Solmir travel through the shadowlands together to find the Heart Tree and a way to finally destroy the kings.

While they are trapped in the shadowlands, Neve's sister, Red, is trying to find a way to bring Neve back. Red and Eammon, her husband the wolf, travel with Raffe, an old friend of Red and Neve's, along with a new character who has ties to the throne of Valleyda, in their search for answers.

It all comes to a head with the inevitable death of kings and the loss and finding of loves and family.

This was a beautiful, yet dark, conclusion the the duology.
