A new force of destruction threatens to shatter everything that Ildiko and Brishen have built as a couple. War is upon them and together they must decide if duty outweighs love.
This is the second book of the Wraith Kings series and for the most part, I enjoyed it. The prologue was very intense and the angst that followed was so heartbreaking.
I also absolutely love Ildiko and Brishen together. They are such lovely characters and an even more lovelier couple.
If you found the previous book to be lacking plot-wise, the sequel amped it up. There is world-building galore, action, death, and higher stakes to be dealt with. Magic is also a huge part of this book as well for those who enjoy that.
However, with that said, there were many parts that I found myself skipping through. There was a lot of information that was unpacked in this but some of you might enjoy that since it added to the overall fantasy of the world.
For those of you who like unique couples, angst, action, and crazy magical rituals, then I think you would be very happy with this book.

“I would have been content to live my life as just Brishen,” he whispered into her hair. “Who was loved by Ildiko.”― Grace Draven, Eidolon
In a bid for more power, the Shadow Queen of Haradis has unleashed a malignant force into the world. Her son Brishen, younger prince of the Kai royal house, suddenly finds himself ruler of a kingdom blighted by a diseased darkness and on the brink of war. His human wife Ildiko must decide if she will give up the man she loves in order to secure his throne.
Three enemy kingdoms must unite to save each other, and a one-eyed, reluctant king must raise an army of the dead to defeat an army of the damned.
A tale of alliance and sacrifice.
