of King Taron’s weakened powers have left the air court vulnerable.
Kalin is desperate to awaken her akasha powers, except she doesn’t know
how. Tension within the court is at an all-time high. Pressure is
mounting for her to ascend to the throne, but a halfling has never ruled
over any court. To solidify her position, the council has advised her
to marry Sebastian—a high ranking air elemental she’s never met and her

and Marcus return to a fire court in turmoil. Liana’s death has fueled
the fire elementals’ distrust against the air and woodland courts. The
unbalanced elements have set off natural disasters all over the mortal
world. Rowan takes the throne to restore balance, promising to unite the
fire court. But not all elementals are happy with his leadership. Many
are secretly loyal to Valac, which means Rowan needs to find allies for
Can Rowan unify the court of fire before the elements destroy the world?
So, I finally got to read the second book of "Mortal Enchantment"! Things seem to become more and more complicate for Kalin and Rowan as Valac tries to destroy both Avalon and the nortal world.
What I did like:
The descriptions of the courts and the ways of their organization. The wood court, the fire and the air as exceptional. Rowan also takes the responsibilities of his crown but that doesn't make him shy away from Kalin.
Kalin at the same time must deal with the responsibilities of her court AND a new fiance.
What I didn't like:
There was almost no mention to the water court. I would like to see more of them. The book's plot this time seems way too planned with almost no surprises to me. What gave the 4 stars is the cliffhanger in the ending. I like those kinds of endings, they keep you giddy and waiting!
