After achieving the impossible and releasing their people from the Varas slavers, Anan and Terja, a spellweaver and spellspinner, start the arduous journey back to their homeland. A winter trek across the grasslands is dangerous enough, but the traitor, Xain, is tasked with recapturing the slaves, and failure will mean his death. As added insurance, the Varas High Regent hires a Triad of legendary Ubica assassins and assigns a full regiment of his personal guards, along with their captain, to the task. Their mission is clear: recapture the escaped Talac slaves destined for the Varas pleasure houses—and the bed of the High Regent—at any cost.
The newly freed Talac travel toward their homelands with the full knowledge they are likely being pursued. The flight westward is fraught with new and unexpected dangers as Anan and Terja struggle to save their tribe. The battle for shelter, food, and a way to defend themselves becomes an all-consuming task, but they are reminded by the avatars of their gods that all is not as it appears.
In book two of the Obsidian series that question is put to the test. Anan and Terja fought to free the Kuri and have succeeded thus far but the fight has just begun. In order to keep their freedom and their lives they have to fight together against many enemies.
This book in my opinion is a book about freedom from being a slave is a motivator to fight with whatever one has to fight with even if it means giving your life for that freedom. The Kuri stands together and no matter the danger that awaits them the press forward towards their home land and they constantly learn more about themselves and those around them along the journey. This is a book that takes enemies and makes them your Allie by finding it within yourself to help the one who caused you harm. It is a book about love being more powerful then danger. It is a book about turning your nightmares into just that, a nightmare and not a reality. It is a book about fighting for your freedom even if it costs you your life in the fight. Last but not least it is a book about realizing that your family is not only the blood related kind you thought you lost but also those that stand by you and support you through thick and thin.
This book is filled with adventure, mystery, danger, and love. It was such an exciting read. At each corner something new seemed to jump out and was almost usually more dangerous then the last. I never knew what to expect and that is one of the things that made this book so good. I loved that no matter how much the bad people seemed to think they was Keats one step ahead, good always seemed to prevail in the end. I look forward to the next book in this series because I can’t imagine that it will not be as exciting and action packed as this one is.
