This book was OK but not really my taste. That doesn't mean someone else won't like it though. I found it a little slow getting to the point. I enjoyed the relationship between Ella and Mila, Ella's sister. They had such a special bond that touches your heart. Ella and her husband, King Falon, have a complicated relationship. Their relationship is a little difficult to follow. He treats her with a lot of distrust and suspicion. He has to learn a lot throughout the story including leadership, trust, and how to admit he loves her. These things seem to be a pretty big pill for Falon to swallow. Over all it was an OK book and I think teenagers would enjoy the story line a lot more than adults will like it. It is not too long for teens to lose interest in either.
After mortal invaders slay a Shadow Shifter woman, Queen Ella knows there is more blood on the horizon. As the most powerful Sensitive in the village, Ella has always known she’s destined to save the kingdom. But her task seems impossible. She must move the Well of Souls to a new realm to save her people or risk failing the Ancestor gods.
The woman King Falon loves will never love him back, despite a binding marriage built on regal decorum. Falon’s first duty is to his people, and he only wants to provide the Shadow Shifters with a safe future. He must assert his power to gain the respect of the warriors.
Harder still, King Falon must accept the salvation of his people lies with his own Queen Ella, a woman who speaks madness... a woman he’s always loved, but hardly knows.
