Thoughts: To be honest, this isn't exactly my favorite type of book. While the plot and settings were interesting, I just couldn't really get into the characters. Now, this is the sequel to Claire Banschbach's previous novel The Rise of Aredor, which I have not read yet, so maybe there was more to be had there. But I didn't feel like I missed too much that this book didn't recap for me and still felt the characters lacking much in the way of growth or development. So, not a bad book but not necessarily the best I've read either, and not a light read. I do look forward to seeing more from this author!
Content: Mild violence is pretty much it, its a war but detail is usually bare minimum. This is Christian fantasy so its pretty much clean for all ages!
