Trinity Rising: The Wild Hunt Book 2

Elspeth Cooper


Set party during the time of Songs of the Earth and partly after the battle, Savin and his manipulations are exposed, showing the why of the first book.  Teia is introduced and her life as a member of the Clans is shown.  She can scry – seeing the future, though she keeps this talent hidden, fearful she will be given to the Speaker, as all female talents are.  Growing uneasy about the Speaker’s desire for war, she embarks on a perilous journey.

Gair and Alderan depart on a quest to find the bitterseeds the Knights hid.  Burning for revenge against Savin for Aysha’s death, Gair is reluctant to go but promised Alderan to obey him.  His Song is also failing and the Cultists are rising.  The Church is manipulating away and Duncan is trying to save the Empire.  The Wild Hunt is being set loose……..

Exciting and fast-paced, this story has a tightly woven plot, vivid descriptions, and strong characters.  You feel as though you’re there and seeing what the characters are seeing.  It’s easy to get caught up in the story and I’m waiting with bated breath for book 3 of The Wild Hunt.  Requiring a lot of concentration to remember events, as the story shifts between different people and perspectives, this can be read as a standalone.  I bet you’ll be hooked and need the next in the series though, especially after the cliff hanger ending.
