While Evie’s best friend, Lark, returned with the Riders just in time to save their village, it was not in time to save her beloved. After nursing Lark back to health, Evie ran away and unknowingly ran towards her destiny. The Rider Laurent is trailing Evie, protecting her in his role as Complement. But Evie doesn’t want to accept her destiny nor her role and may do something disastrous because of her unheeding ways.
Book two of the Guardians of Tarnec takes some dramatic turns as it follows the calling of the second Guardian. This classic fantasy construction deserves much attention from readers, but it will probably need to be hand sold in order to get the attention it deserves.
