Crowns Shield picks up where Rebels Blade finishes. If you liked the first book you will love this second book, the plot has grown further, and its becoming exciting and scary in parts. Frost Kay made me scream and shout ... I was reading then Bam cliffhanger and it ended. That doesn't mean i didn't absolutely love the book. It just means this cliffhanger was at a crucial part. I need answers.....**patiently waits for book 3**, You will devour Crowns Shield and be hungry for more! Sage and Tehl start to get along more in this book, circumstances bring them more into each others lives, they find a way to make it work mutually. We are getting glimpses of the other lands in book two. Sirens Lure (prequel novella) also shares more on other lands, and back stories on a few characters in Crowns Shield.
