Review: Not as climatic as the hero and the crown, but still a good second. the only thing I had a hard time with were the names and some of the customs. Not that I didn’t know what they were, it was just hard to follow the pace of the story with them included. All in all, I was happy with the ending and at seeing some old characters from the first book. I was really happy to also find out about the rest of what happened to the characters from the first book too.
3 out of 5 stars.

Summary: Harry Crewe is an orphan girl who comes to live in Damar, the desert country shared by the Homelanders and the secretive, magical Free Hillfolk. When Corlath, the Hillfolk King, sees her for the first time, he is shaken — for he can tell that she is something more than she appears to be. He will soon realize what Harry has never guessed: she is to become Harimad-sol, King’s Rider, and carry the Blue Sword, Gonturan, which no woman has wielded since the legendary Lady Aerin bore it into battle, generations past.
