I was so happy that I noticed the sequel was already out! I really loved the first book and I was happy to return to this world again. This time we follow two couples as they work their way through battles and intrigues to unite three countries. It was a very good read with a satisfactory amount of pages, over 400. Which is rare in the m/m world. This book reads more like a mainstream fantasy novel with a gay theme, although I mus say that this book was more romantic (more m/m and less gay fiction) then the first one and I liked that.
