Conor and Aine have barely escaped Seare with their lives. Conor knows he must return to find the harp that could end the Red Druid’s reign of terror, but in the midst of their escape, he and Aine are torn apart once more. Surrounded by despair and thrown into as much danger as they left behind, Conor and Aine must cling to the whispers of Comdiu’s plans for them and the homeland that depends on their survival. But at what cost? Will they learn to depend on Comdiu completely? Or will they give up hope?
My thoughts (reviewed by Jenna): BENEATH THE FORSAKEN CITY is just as thrilling as the first book, The Oath of the Brotherhood, and the ending was not at all predictable. I absolutely HAVE to read the next book in the series, The Sword and the Song, now. Parts of this were really, really frightening, and I couldn't put this book down at all.
I recommend reading the first book, The Oath of the Brotherhood, to understand what happens in BENEATH THE FORSAKEN CITY. This series doesn't stand alone. Great book, great series. 5 stars.
