Soldier… Sorcerer… Savior… Who is Vhalla Yarl?
Vhalla Yarl marches to war as property of the Solaris Empire. The Emperor counts on her to bring victory, the Senate counts on her death, and the only thing Vhalla can count on is the fight of her life. As she grapples with the ghosts of her past, new challenges in the present threaten to shatter the remnants of her fragile sanity. Will she maintain her humanity? Or will she truly become the Empire’s monster?
This book was better than the first book. Vhalla is having to march to the north with the Empire’s army. The will be trials that will make her or break her.
The growth of Vhalla’s character through the progression of the book is amazing. She goes from mousy scared library apprentice to a warrior. Her growth is amazing. Same with Aldrik. Now I am still on the fence with him because of some actions he does when it comes to Vhalla. By the end of the book though he starts to redeem himself.
There are new characters that were introduced in the first book but not getting to really see what they are like till now. I like Daniel. He is awesome. If Aldrik wasn’t in the picture I would want Daniel with Vhalla. Of course new characters are introduced in this book as well. Such as Elecia. At first I didn’t like her but as the story progressed she became tolerable.
Now the ending. Holy hell. I was shocked at how that ended. I couldn’t wait to read the third book to find out what happened. As I am writing this I am 30% through the third book. I have the fourth book already. I’m starting to gobble up this series.
