Summary of the Book:

Valory’s power is different . . . it’s dangerous, unruly, and destructive. But can she channel it to crush a cunning enemy and save the realm from chaos?

Welcome to Nissera, land of three kingdoms and home to spectacular magic.

A century after her legendary ancestors overcame a bloodthirsty tyrant, seventeen-year-old Valory Braiosa attends a training academy for elicromancers, immortal beings with magical gifts. Yet Valory’s immense power seems impossible to tame, and she faces imprisonment by the Nisseran authorities. Then a forbidden resurrection spell awakens a long-dormant evil, and Valory may be the only one who can vanquish this terrifying villain. Together with a band of allies—including an old friend; a haughty princess; and a mysterious, handsome stranger—Valory must learn to harness her power and fight back.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the companion book to the first installment in the series. There is little reference to the book and the FMC is related to the hero of the first book. This one takes place about 100 years after the first one and can be read as a standalone. Other them that the book is very story and action driven.  I had not problem finishing this book in one setting. I had to know what happened. I am ready for the next one in the series.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
