|Set partly during the time of Songs of the Earth
and partly after the battle, Savin and his manipulations are exposed, showing the why of
the first book. Teia is introduced and her life as a member of the Clans is shown. She can
scry - seeing the future, though she keeps this talent hidden, fearful she will be given
to the Speaker, as all female talents are. Growing uneasy about the Speakers desire
for war, she embarks on a perilous journey.
Gair and Alderan depart on a quest to find
the bitterseeds the Knights hid. Burning for revenge against Savin for Ayshas death,
Gair is reluctant to go but promised Alderan to obey him. His Song is also failing and the
Cultists are rising. The Church is manipulating away and Duncan is trying to save the
Empire. The Wild Hunt is being set loose........
Exciting and fast-paced, this story has a tightly woven plot, vivid descriptions, and
strong characters. You feel as though youre there and seeing what the characters are
seeing. Its easy to get caught up in the story and Im waiting with bated
breath for book 3 of The Wild Hunt. Requiring a lot of concentration to
remember events, as the story shifts between different people and perspectives, this can
be read as a standalone. I bet youll be hooked and need the next in the series
though, especially after the cliff hanger ending.
