Readathon 2013 review #1 🙂
This was a quick read, though I have to admit I did skim a little when the action moved to the religious leaders of this fantasy world. I wasn’t a big fan of them and their devious ways! Still loved the two main characters from the first book (The Crown Conspiracy) and their adventure was a good one.
THE SECRET IS IN THE TOWER. THE PROBLEM IS THE BEAST. THE ANSWER IS TWO THIEVES. When a destitute young woman hires Royce and Hadrian to help save her remote village from nocturnal attacks, they are once more drawn into the schemes of the wizard Esrahaddon. While Royce struggles to breech the secrets of an ancient elven tower, Hadrian attempts to rally the villagers to defend themselves against the unseen killer. Once more, what begins with the simple theft of a sword places the two thieves at the center of a firestorm – but this time the outcome could change the future of Elan.
