Bright Burns the Night by Sara B. Larson - ADVISABLE

Bright Burns the Night (Dark Breaks the Dawn, #2) by Sara B. Larson, 304 pages.  Scholastic, 2018. $18.  Language: G (1 swear); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG-13.  



Evelayn has been trapped in her swan body for the last ten years, ever since King Lorcan cut out her conduit stone.  Every year, Lorcan has come to the lake and forced Evelayn to transition back to a human and asked her to marry, but every year Evelayn has refused him.  There is an ancient evil brewing and Lorcan needs help, and when he wakes Evelayn up he can’t transition her back to a swan.  Together Lorcan and Evelayn have to overcome their past betrayals and save the kingdom they both love.  

I liked this book better than the first.  Evelayn and Lorcan have good chemistry and I loved the twists on relationships from the first book.  The setting is well done.  My only complaint would be that at the end of the book when the action is at the climax, the author goes into a long explanation about where the ancient power comes from flattening the suspense.  Overall though this was a great read that I couldn’t put down.
