Magic, romance, adventure, empowered women, mystery, suspense...there is a little of everything I enjoy all wrapped up in one great book. This is the second book in a series of three. The first book, Poison Study, I liked but I think the author really picked up the pace in this book. It only took about 25 pages to get into this story and after that, I was totally hooked.

During this story Yelena's powers develop and she discovers her magical abilities. The suspense is cleverly woven right throughout the entire book and it doesn't let up, in fact, it is left hanging for the next book.

One of the greatest additions to Yelena’s story is Kiki, her horse. Yelena discovers that part of her magical ability is speaking to animals, and she makes better friends with horses in Sitia than most of the people. Kiki has a strange kind of wisdom, which comes through as both amusing and ultimately correct. Horses have a simple view of life, strong senses, and an excellent ability to judge character. When she can trust no one else, Yelena can trust Kiki, who will do just about anything for her Lavender Lady who brings her apples.

I highly recommend this second instalment of Yelena’s story and I can't wait to read the third!
