Summary of the Book:
Catrin can see the future in a drop of water. Her brother Hyw can take the shape of any bird or animal. Now they are all that stand between their people and Longshank’s ruthless army.
Catrin’s gift of Second Sight may be the only hope of finding three magical relics to rally Wales—if she can outwit the English lord who wants to use her gift to capture the prince.
Hyw is on the run with the prince and the dwindling Welsh army. To escape betrayal, Hyw takes refuge in his evolving gift—until shifting shapes puts his humanity in jeopardy.
With Hyw trapped in his magic and her betrothed imprisoned, Catrin faces an impossible choice: save her brother, or save the one she loves.
This award-winning medieval fantasy series combines magic, mythology, and historical legends with the realities of 13th Century Wales.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is the second book in this duo and it picks up where the second one let off. Cat is struggling to use her gifts to save her people. She wants to help her brother and the man that she loves. Hyw is trying to hide in his ability to change shape but it is starting to take his humanity away. The author does a wonderful job of mixing the historical side with the fantasy side. The world is well-detailed and draws the reader into the adventure. It is powerful and moving in the way things are described and makes me long for more.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
