War draws closer, like a tide to the shore.
Bree and her friends have escaped the clutches of the Egrian King, but their troubles are far from over. Still reeling from the secrets that drew new breath when her father took his last, Bree sets off for the safety of Nereidium- the kingdom she's just learned is hers.
But with the King's ire at its peak and war a certainty, Nereidium is no longer safe. As Prince Caden rallies the Egrian people against his tyrant father, Bree, Princess Aleta, and Tregle race to the Nereid shore to warn them of the incoming danger--and to put the Nereid Princess on the throne.
The only trouble there: Bree can't bring herself to reveal that the Princess is her.
It's not a dilemma she can waste time ponderin. With a new weapon in his arsenal, the King's strikes are sure to be bolder than ever before. And Bree may not be ready to wear a crown... but she won't let her kingdom down without a fight.THOUGHTS
What did I take so long to pick up this series? I mean seriously -- I've had the books for like forever! This book was a bit of an eye opening compared to Threats of Sky and Sea, there you are gently sucked into a very sweet and promising romance between Bree and Prince Caden.
Riot of Storm and Smoke the lovers are parted for the majority of the book and I have to say it did Bree the world of GOOD! *well partially* I get that Bree has had her world turned up side down, haunted by the person who killed her father and loosing her power is major but she becomes a bit of a *whiny biatch!* but she’s not the only one yes Prince Caden has also been threw the ringer and it’s changed him too. Torture will do that to a guy but its like he's had a bit of a personality change
There's one bit of the book that kinda annoyed/confused me - maybe I misread the book but the description of Caden and Bree doing more then kissing is more than confusing, one minute they’re kissing the next Bree is putting her clothes back on! She’s seventeen years old, I’m pretty sure it was more then kissing. I think my issue was in the way the scenes are written, the author appears to shy away from going into too much detail *I'm not looking for hot sex scene this is a YA Novel* but the scene is awkward.
While I'm bashing the book a little bit I'll also admit I can't wait to read the next installment especially due to the cliffhanger at the end *I shall not spoil it for you* Hopefully in Fall of Thrones and Thorns there will be more of the witty banter, more romantic and an epic finale.
