Synopsis: ALL BEGINNINGS COME AT A PRICE. ARE YOU WILLING TO PAY IT?

Lilla must recruit the biggest and most dangerous army in the Seven Galaxies, but the Teryn emperor will not comply unless Lilla earns the blessing of the Teryn Guardian Goddess Laoise.

Dealing with gods is never easy. Guardian Goddess Laoise’s condition for bestowing her blessing is for Lilla to bring her the mysterious Heart Amulet. Now Lilla is trapped in a strange place with no way out, no idea where to go or how to find the amulet.

The only way for Lilla to complete her mission is to uncover the biggest secret of all Teryns. Will she survive discovering the secret of what it means to be a True Teryn?

Review: Overall, this went better than the first book. I had some context as to what was going on and who these characters were. The book had a lot of promise and the plot was decent enough to keep me reading the book. I also thought the author did a bit better explaining the magic system in this one.

However,  I still had issues with this book. It was still as confusing as the first book and the fast pacing had me racing to figure out what was going on in this book. The characters are still not fully developed in my opinion and I still think that the world building could be better.

Verdict: It was ok.
