Summary: (from goodreads) After her adventures with the Key of Amatahns, sixteen-year-old Janir Caersynn Argetallam returns home to find Brevia on the brink of war with a neighboring country, Stlaven. Her foster-father and even Saoven—a brave young elf warrior—think it will be safe at the castle where Janir grew up. However, while trying to unravel a looming mystery, Karile—self-taught wizard and Janir’s self-appointed best friend—becomes certain that there is danger in the mountains surrounding Janir’s childhood home and that it has something to do with Stlaven’s most powerful family, the Vanmars…
The second book to this series was excellent like the first book. It has suspense from the beginning to the very end. Janir the main character thinks she is safe back home with her master , her elf Saoven, and her crazy wizard friend Karlie. When she gets home she finds out if she is going to be killed or be safe again when she has to go in front of the kings. She finds out she is safe one more time. Plus she finds out that her country is on the brink of a war with another country. Along the way through the story Karlie wants to go exploring to try to find out some information about magic. So he has Janir tag along. Along their journey they end up encountering dwarves and ends up getting noticed so those two have to run for their lives. So at dinner one night Janir notices the servant and he seems odd to her so she goes and tells her elf. Well he ends up coming to get her in the end to take her back to her real father. I won't tell you anymore.
This series is wonderful from the beginning to the end. I was getting into the book and when I got to the end i realized it was over with. I was so disappointed that it was and then I found out the third book to this series won't be out until 2013. So if you get a chance. Read this series by this young high school student.
