This second volume in the trilogy takes the story of the twin sisters, the Seeker and the Keeper, further along as they confront new adversaries and try to find meaning to their lives. They face one peril after another while also getting romantically involved with major characters. There's a touch of "soapness" about the book when the young ladies ponder about these suitors. The fantasy element is well-written and original and I recommend the trilogy to any fantasy lover. Characters are developed furtherand the book ends on a cliffhanger. The storyline moves along quite nicely and keeps the reader engaged 9which is why I've now ordered the third book!).
