Dance of Shadows by Erica Marie Hogan

Dance of Shadows (The Winter Queen, #2)Book Description:
The Winter Queen has brought the storm … 
and the Abyss roams the halls of the Blood Keep.

Ten days have passed since Sundragon blood was shed for a sacrifice by Raphaela Kael. Ten days since Lathan and Maxx Jandry fled the city in search of Princess Damari Kael and their niece, Noelle. Brecken Jandry, Brae’s loyal husband, remains a tortured prisoner in the Kael dungeons and no one in Sunkai is safe from Roderick and Raphaela’s wrath.

Damari Kael flees Sunkai with little Noelle Jandry, determined to deliver the child to the safety of the Shadow Lands, even as her own power emerges within her. The Eventide Sisters embark on a mission to join the Winter Queen. Across the land, Clea Jandry arrives in her birthplace of Molderëin where she is met with a savagery she thought long dead. Afra Malaki seeks the Creator’s will and the Queen of the Woodlands prepares for battle.

In the peaceful city of Quintaria, the Winter Queen grieves. But the shadows are coming for her. They carry a message for Adlae Sundragon, and they will not rest until all is revealed.

My Thoughts:
I didn't realize this was the second in a series until I had started reading it. That being said, after a couple chapters, I felt I had a good handle on things and the book was great after that. I do believe having read the first one would have helped me in the start to keep all the characters straight quicker, because there are a lot of characters.
I thought the author did a fabulous job of blending fantasy and faith. There is a ton going on in the book but you don't feel lost. It is more the feeling of I need to read this now to find out what happens next. I thought the author did a great job overall. With that ending, I need the next book now.
It was a 4/5 for me.
