Empire of Night (Age of Legends, #2)

Empire of Night (Age of Legends #2) by

Sisters Moria and Ashyn are the Keeper and Seeker of Edgewood. Or at least, they were.

Their village is gone. Their friends have betrayed them. And now, the emperor has sent them on a mission to rescue the children of Edgewood—accompanied by Prince Tyrus and a small band of imperial warriors. But the journey proves more perilous than they could have imagined. With treachery and unrest mounting in the empire, Moria and Ashyn will have to draw on all their influence and power to overcome deadly enemies—not all of them human—and even avert an all-out war

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


I enjoyed the second installment in the Age of Legends series even more than the first. There's a lot of excitement, a little romance, loss, twists and turns, and even a laugh or two. The story seemed faster paced, more interesting and complex and I loved Tyrus - he's a fabulous mix of gravity and charm with a great sense of humor.

I do hate a love triangle - and that's what the author has created here. It seems like Gavril should be completely out of the running - he's definitely not playing the hero - he's not. I'm still waiting to hear his side of the story - he's infuriating closed mouthed - but I'm sure it's going to be interesting.

Empire of Night left me anxious for the next book in the series; the twins are in peril - as usual - everyone has their own agenda, and there are still a million unanswered questions.
