Unlike the first book this romance story follows Prince Phillip's cousin Cathal and Flavian At first I wasn't as excited to read their story as I wasn't originally a huge fan of Cathal I am glad I read it though as I loved watching him slowly shed his standoffish personality the his story developed I think a lot of that had to do with him stepping out from underneath his fathers shadow and of course through the growth of his relationships with Amory Phillip and Flavian Overall I really enjoyed the second installment in this series It made me laugh and it was a super sweet and cute storyDisclosure I received a complimentary eARC at no cost from the authorpublisher for review purposes I'd like to thank NineStar Press and the publisher for providing me this opportunity

This second visit to the fantasy world of which Tournai is a part was as fantastic amazing and full of surprises as the first While ‘The Prince’s Consort’ focused on royal couple Philip and Amory who play an essential role again this second volume is cousin Cathal’s story Now if you have read the first book and you should before attempting this one you may remember that Cathal was not exactly the nicest person around I thought it was fascinating how that changed with a little information and how Cathal gradually emerged from the shadow of his overbearing father Philip’s uncle Umber With some great new characters as well as old favorites who return for royal intrigue this seuel made me laugh frown at some of the characters’ stupidity and delight in the special magic that pervades TournaiPlease find my full review of the second edition on Rainbow Book Reviews
