Synopsis: The Hunt is over but the War has just begun.

Against all odds, Janneke has survived the Hunt for the Stag--but all good things come with a cost. Lydian might be dead, but he took the Stag with him. Janneke now holds the mantle, while Soren, now her equal in every way, has become the new Erlking. Janneke's powers as the new Stag has brought along haunting visions of a world thrown into chaos and the ghost of Lydian taunts her with the riddles he spoke of when he was alive.

When Janneke discovers the truth of Lydian and his madness, she's forced to see her tormentor in a different light for the first time. The world they know is dying and Lydian may have been the only person with the key to saving it.

My Review: This sequel to White Stag takes place almost a year after the events of the first book. Janneke is trying to access the power of the Stag that was entrusted to her from the previous Stag and Soren is dealing with being Erlking. Much to Janneke's shock Lydian is still alive as a shade since his heart hasn't been burned and is being kept in the palace. Janneke is still working through her issues with Lydian's abuse and rape when she was his thrall. Soren, Janneke, Lydian, and some others go on a journey to save the Permafrost. 

I did end up liking this book but I didn't enjoy it as much as White Stag but now I'm invested in this series and I need the next four books in my hands. I do recommend these books if you are a fan of goblin boyfriends who love their human girlfriends with an adventure thrown in.

Rating: 4 stars
