Beneath the mountain, the king's reign of tyranny is absolute; the one troll with the capacity to challenge him is imprisoned for treason. Cecile has escaped the darkness of Trollus, but she learns all too quickly that she is not beyond the reach of the king's power. Or his manipulation.
Recovered from her injuries, she now lives with her mother in Trianon and graces the opera stage every night. By day she searches for the witch who has eluded the trolls for 500 years. Whether she succeeds or fails, the costs to those she cares about will be high. To find Anushka, she must delve into magic that is both dark and deadly. The witch is a clever creature, and Cecile might not just be the hunter. She might also be the hunted.

Yes, Its just what they would like romance, danger and magic. Very well written and very well read.
I liked all the Characters, it's told from the two main characters points of view from the way they feel to the way they see the world around them.
Yes, I loved Stolen Song Bird the first in the series, they read that the same way, very expressive you believe they are the characters.
Beauty And The Beast have nothing on this love affair!
If you like magic and romance you will love this.
"Love this story but....."
I wanted to SCREAM at the characters for not figuring out the "plot twist" when I did. Seriously frustrating when you figure out what's going on half way thru the book and everyone else is clueless. With all that being said... I still do enjoy this story. Like with a lot of second books this one was a bit slow and felt like a really big build up for book 3. I will definitely be reading that when it comes out:)
Loved this book. Exciting story right from the start! Almost better than the first one.
Even better than book one! Great story line. Can't wait until the third is released.
"A little boring at first but overall wonderful!"
This trilogy is off to a great start! At first it is a little hard to get into but once the story progresses you will be hooked!
"Wonderful new series"
I am always so glad to find a new author and this one is great. The two narrators are wonderful and really added to the enjoyment of the book. I am just sad I have to wait so long for the concluding book.
"Even better than the first book"
Loved it! It will be hard to wait for the next installment. This is so much more than a love story. I love how the world and story unfold through events and how the characters experience them. This book brings their worlds to the brink of war even as trust is challenged. This series has surpassed my expectations and I'm thrilled to have found it.
"A lot better than the first!"
The book starts out slow mostly because Tristan and Cecil are apart but it gets a lot better. It gets very exciting but the end of this book and a great setup for the third.
"Great narrators and story!"
I've already downloaded the next book! Twists aplenty and no cheesiness here. Great series.
The narrators are amazing.
The only thing I have to complain about this book is when you realize the plot twist before the characters and it literally makes me go mad since its in front of their face the whole time. I like being able to follow along the the characters as they discover it or make my own assumptions, not being a head half way through the book. That just makes it feel like the book is being dragged.
Its okay. I dont feel like its written very well. I feel like she was coming up with ideas as she wrote and just through it all together.
