- Dragonslayer and His Sorceress

If you got this far, I have to assume you already read the first book in the series and that you liked it enough to look into the second.
This is my new favorite series. I was excited to see if the author could keep the pace with the sequel as many authors "fizzle" when it's time for a sequel.
The second book is just as thrilling as the first. I am a sucker for strong female roles and I can't get enough of Raven. While I don't want to give away any spoilers, I have to say that her relationship with Carison feels VERY right and it wasn't forced upon the reader like in many books.
My absolute favorite thing about this series has to be the villains. Butcher Lemore is a truly sinister villain and I was curious to see what would happen after the crazy end to the first one. You will not be disappointed with his plans in this book!
This sequel has action, suspense, drama, and even a tragic moment in between. I can't get enough of this series!

Between Carison, Orson, and Raven I don't know who my favorite character is!
I am taken away by the constant struggle Raven has to control herself. Her character depth expands so much in this installment! I could not stop myself from turning the pages as fast as I could when I got to part two!
Not only do my favorite characters return here but the drama and twists and turns kept me up all night reading.
The Butcher returns as well and we see more of his plan with the mysterious egg. I don't want to ruin the ending but this is probably my favorite book in the series with all of the surprises!
If you liked the first two then I assume you will pick this one up as well. I have never been happier that there was an 8 part series, but now I'm stuck waiting for the rest to come out!
