In this sequel to Brigitta of the White Forest, Brigitta must once again travel back to the land of the Ancients. Terrible trouble faces the faeries of the White Forest, and the prophecy states that Brigitta must be the one who restores the balance.
Traveling with the High Priestess, Ondelle, she finds herself caught up in a war between two faerie populations. As outsiders, they are viewed with hostility, which puts their lives in jeopardy. Brigitta must rely on her instincts to determine who she can trust and how to extract herself from her dire predicament.
I loved the first book in this series, but found that the ending to this story left me unsatisfied. Too many questions remained to be answered, and there is no sense of closure. Brigitta and Ondelle, along with the other beings they encounter, are magical, and the fantasy captures the imagination. One truly feels transported to another realm in reading this story. I hope the answers will come in the third volume of this series.
