Publisher's Summary

A stolen bridegroom. A determined bride. A love that will defy both Heaven and Hell.

Valera couldn’t have known the disaster that would fall when she betrayed her husband by looking at his face by candlelight. Now, it’s too late - he is taken from her to some faraway world. She doesn’t know where. She doesn’t know why. She doesn’t even know who kidnapped him.

But she will save him. No matter what.

Neither adventurous nor skilled with weapons like her younger sister, Valera nonetheless sets out on the adventure of a lifetime. An adventure that will take her journeying through worlds and confronting perils she is desperately unprepared to face...until, at last, she comes to the dark and twisted palace standing on the edge of Hell.

Is her love of Erolas strong enough to sustain her? Or will the final test prove too great?

Even better than the first book!

This is the second book in a duology. The first book was good (except for a couple chapters). This book continues the story but is far better. Tons more world building, magic, and a young woman finding her strength and bravery while working to save her true love. (I love that it’s flipped so the woman is saving the guy!)

Only thing…the guy isn’t really in the story until the very end, so if you are looking for their relationship to be built in this one, that’s not the point of this book. This book is about the main character’s personal growth, not about her relationship with her husband.

Yup, What I Expected.

Okay.

Valera still is not my favorite heroine ever, but she grew on me in this book. The book in general is still very much limited in how many characters Valera interacts with, which let's the reader spend more time with Valera and pinpoint where she has grown as a character. But then, with the lack of a consistent companion or otherwise, Valera does tend to get pretty dramatic. If you are stuck with dramatics non-stop, you do tend to get tired.

But, really. This book is leagues better than the first. I still would have liked more world building, but for what Valera needed to do, it worked.

Erolas is still a cinnamon roll, and I know why he wasn't much in the book, but man. I missed him so much! Ugh!!!

Loved it 😍

This is one book that is even better than the first. I really liked the characters and adventures. My interest was held all the way through it. The goblin’s were especially cute- I loved their antics and their names. Plus, this book a real romance without being overly sexual A+++

Good, but not as good as the first book

I felt this book really dragged on at times and became a little repetitive. I did enjoy it, but I enjoyed the first book more.
