I was really exited when it came out - the first one made it sound really interesting - and I have to say it was worth every letter inside! I REALLY recommend this to people who like fiction and fantasy, although really, it might even catch the love of sci-fi fans!
As this book opens, Sophie is trying to enjoy her break from school and part of that is hunting magical creatures with Grady, her guardian, and her friend Dex. But both of them are surprised when she makes contact with an alicorn. These rare creatures are very important to elf society, and finding one is huge.
But Sophie can't completely celebrate the find because The Black Swan is still leaving her messages. What is their plan for her? And with the kidnappers still out there, will she ever feel safe?
After enjoying the first book in the series, I was anxious to read this one. And I wasn't disappointed. Sophie and the rest of the cast of great characters are back, and they continue to be developed here. The plot is good and kept me engrossed, and I never felt like putting the book down. It did take me a little while to get back into the swing of the story and the universe, but once I did, I felt right at home.
I definitely recommend you read the first book before this one. Major events are spoiled from that book and you won't understand a little of what is happening. But don't worry. You'll be here before you know it.
So get ready for another fun, exciting adventure with Sophie and friends. Me? I'm ready to find out what happens next.
