This is one of the best fantasy series out there right now, bar none. Book 1 was great but this one was just plain amazing. As with the last one, the world-building is top-notch, the writing is flawless, and the characters are real and relatable. Elisa is an impressive heroine, and Hector....OMG HECTOR! Could the man be more wonderful? I really don't think so. The developing romance between him and Elisa was both sweet and passionate, and the ending both broke and lifted my heart, all at once. Book 3 is going to be EPIC. Cannot WAIT to read it! Highly recommend this amazing series. 5 mega-stars!
