I was pulled in from the very beginning of this well written and completely enthralling novel. This is the second book in the series and I did not read the first but did not feel any lack for not having done so.
Fox and Willa have come through a difficult period (the first book) and are now trying to just find a place of peace. But they find themselves caught up in someone else’s problems (again) and this time they save a young woman from an ambush and it leads them into a vast and varied adventure that involves the last of the fables Knights Templar.
A truly compelling, fast paced and well researched novel with the kind of characters you will follow to the ends of the Earth. Once I started it was really hard to put down until I reached the conclusion.
