Review: "Fragile Reign" (Mortal Enchantment #2) by Stacey O'Neale

Fragile Reign (Mortal Enchantment, #2)Fragile Reign by Stacey O'Neale
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

It’s been a week since all hell broke loose…

Rumors 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 betrothed.

Will Kalin sacrifice her relationship with Rowan to strengthen her court?

Rowan 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 his cause.

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!
