Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druid’s reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdiu’s plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival. But at what cost? Will they learn to depend on Comdiu completely? Or will they give up hope?

 ~ My Impressions~

I love when I can enter into a series at the 2nd book and still feel like I read the first one! The author does an amazing job of giving you just enough background information and detail that you missed,but without overdoing it so those that did read the first book feel its redundancy.

I really enjoyed getting to know Connor,  Eoghan and Aine. They are both strong characters that are loyal, honest,kind, loving, full of integrity, brave,and more than what they appear! They are the epitome of what you want to see in lead characters. The plot moves the story along quickly, making this an enjoyable read that you do not want to put down. Which says alot for me since I normally do not like fantasy type books, but I am actually looking forward to "The Sword and the Song" right now.

Filled with all things Celtic, action, romance, mysteries and the whole good versus evil that we would expect to find, this book will not disappoint. When I received this book I did not realize that Laureano was a christian writer, so I was pleasantly surprised to see though was  how well the book kept in align with christian principals and morals. Now I really can not wait for next book.

I received a copy of the book from Tyndale Blog Network for this review. However, the opinions expressed are my own

~About the Author~

C.E. Laureano's love of fantasy began with a trip through a magical wardrobe, and she has never looked back. She's happiest when her day involves martial arts, swords, and a well-choreographed fight scene. When pressed, she'll admit to a love of theater, travel, and good food, which she attributes to her romance-writing alter ego, Carla Laureano.

Appropriately, she's the wife to a martial arts master and mom to two boys who spend most of their time jumping off things and finding objects to turn into light sabers. They live in Denver, Colorado with a menagerie of small pets.
