After upsetting the Sea Queen, Lira is sent to get the Prince’s heart while Elian travels to find the one thing that will help him destroy the sea’s disastrous inhabitants.
But who can you trust in a world of betrayal and unknown magic?
Not written in the best form the captivating storyline could have, I read this book with many stops as the writing was often slow.
The main plot started a little too late, as is the easiest mistake to make in a single fantasy novel.
The character development, however, is worth mentioning and the plot and storyline make it a good read for people who have explored the fantasy genre.
