Luna and Fowler have escaped the kingdom of Relhok, but they haven’t escaped the darkness. When a battle against the dark dwellers mortally injures Fowler, Luna is faced with a choice: put their fate in the hands of mysterious strangers or risk losing Fowler forever.
Desperate to keep the one bright part of her life alive, Luna accepts the help of soldiers from a nearby kingdom. Lagonia’s castle offers reprieve from the dangerous outside world—until the King discovers both Fowler and Luna’s true ties to Relhok and their influence over the throne.
Now pawns in each kingdom’s political game, Luna and Fowler are more determined than ever to escape and build the life they’ve been dreaming of. But their own pasts have a tight hold on their hearts and their destinies. Luna must embrace the darkness and fire within her before she loses not only Fowler but the power she was destined to inherit.
Rise and Fire by Sophie Jordan is the second book in the Reign of Shadow Series. While this book can be read as a stand alone, I recommend it be read as a part of the whole series. Why? You truly won't want to miss a thing of this fantastic series!
Rise and Fire begins exactly where Reign of Shadows left off. This story is chock full of action, adventure, suspense and mystery. There are twists and turns in the plot that are amazing and secrets abound around every corner. It also has romance, friendship and so, so much more!
I truly enjoyed reading Rise of Fire and found it to be a well written, wonderful book in it's own right. How often can you say that the second book in a series is as good as the first?
My hat goes off to Ms. Jordan for the superb job she has done with Rise and Fire. I encourage you all to read this delightfully addicting series.
I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own. Thank you to HarperTeen and Edelweiss for the opportunity to read and review this book.
