Sophie Foster’s life just never slows down. Silveny, the alicorn, has just been relocated to the Sanctuary when she and Keefer get a call for help. It seems the other alicorn has started attacking Silveny, and they need these two to come find out why.
However, what the two learn when they arrive is a shocking secret that involves Ogres. Supposedly, there is a peace treaty between the Elves and the Ogres, but the peace is fragile at best. The Council isn’t interested in what Sophie has learned, they have a job for her – something so controversial that it will leave the population divided. Should Sophie go through with it? What will happen next?
If this is your first introduction to Sophie’s world, don’t start here. Seriously. It’s been a year since I last read it, and I had a hard time remembering some of the details from the previous book, and the book assumes you remember everything. This is my only complaint with the book. I just struggled a bit to get back into Sophie’s world.
But once I did, I was greatly rewarded. While I saw a few twists coming, I was surprised by others. And the drama that unfolded was so gripping I read the second half in one day, while working and preparing for Christmas. I just couldn’t put the book down. The characters are their strongest yet, and I love how they have developed over the three books in the series.
I know the next chapter is about a year away, and I already can’t wait to see what happens next to Sophie and her friends. This is a journey you need to go on. Just start at the beginning.
