Inhaltsangabe

Dark forces are on the rise in this sweeping sequel to The Black Witch by critically acclaimed author Laurie Forest. 

Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs when they rescued a Selkie and freed a military dragon. The last thing they expected was to be thrust into a realm-wide underground resistance against Gardnerian conquest. 

While the Resistance struggles to fight back against the harsh rulings of the Mage Council, more and more Gardnerian soldiers descend upon the University…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the nearby military base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm's length, Lukas is determined to tie himself to her, still convinced that she is the heir to the power of the Black Witch, a legacy of magic that will decide the future of all Erthia. As his own magic calls out to her, seeking to awaken a dark force within, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she's truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed. 

As she navigates the dangerous line of insurgency, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what she knows is right and protect everyone she loves...even if that means protecting them from herself.

One of the best series I read

I have been searching for a series like that for a long time- something which comepletely sucks you into another world, which is complex and intricately woven. Normally I hate this love- triangle concept and I am usually also somewhat inpatient with very slow developing love stories...but I have to say that the story arc of these books is absolutely perfectly wrought. The story is full of strong characters, and every character is created multidimensionally. While they become friends and allies with the main character, you somehow have the feeling they also become yours- you just want to know how their stories continue. Listening to these books cost me some precious sleep, because I just couldn’t stop...and now I am burning for third book! On some platforms I read people who criticized that this book series would be racist. Apparently they didn’t have the patience to read more then the first half of the first book. I think especially because the world of this series is so detailed and the main character is given time to develop and to grow out of her racist thought patterns, it has a very anti-racist effect- it gives the reader time to reflect and draw parallels to the real world as well. Additionally, it makes the drastic development of the main character into a fighter for equality more believable and realistic.
All in all, it is a really well and thoughtfully written, highly addictive book, and the narrator of the audio version fits perfectly with a variety of accents and voices which are necessary for this book- highly recommended!
