Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. But by day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for five hundred years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high.
To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. But the witch is a clever creature. And Cécile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted…
One of the things I loved most about this sequel was that fact that we got to be in Tristan’s head so much more, and got the chance to read about his thoughts and feelings and the pain he went through. It allowed one to get a better grasp on his character and to understand every detail about him and how he wished to be a better troll, not only Cécile but also for everyone else in Trollus who looked to him. My heart honestly ached for Tristan and Cécile to be together as I desperately wished for their chemistry to appear on the pages before me as I treasured the romance between the two. Unfortunately the two were separated for more than half the book, fighting their own battles.
Danielle’s writing flowed beautiful and allowed for POVs to be easily distinguishable with a hint of fantasy vibe. The ending was glorious and filled with actions and much intrigue. It was cleverly plotted with layers of plot twists and complications.
Danielle was born and raised in Calgary, Canada. At the insistence of the left side of her brain, she graduated in 2003 from the University of Calgary with a bachelor’s degree in finance. But the right side of her brain has ever been mutinous; and in 2010, it sent her back to school to complete an entirely impractical English literature degree at Mount Royal University and to pursue publication. Much to her satisfaction, the right side shows no sign of relinquishing its domination.
