Lightborn is the sequel to Darkborn.

Minhorne is a city living with an uneasy relationship between Lightborn and Darkborn. Sunlight kills Darkborn as darkness does for Lightborn. The Darkborn reject magic. Lady Hearne has had to guard against revealing her powers until her husband must use them to protect the Archduke and his brother as well as saving their daughter.

The murder in darkness of the Lightborn prince puts the trusted guard under suspicion and fleeing for her life. The murder turns Lightborn and Darkborn against each other. Now, a Darkborn Lady, a Lightborn assassin, and a dissident Lightborn mage form an unlikely alliance to deal with conspiracies, and treason on both sides of sunrise. And in the dreaded Shadowlands, an army begins to move.

Book two of this series is a political thriller in a world subject to a curse and rife with magic. The romance between Lady Hearne, and her husband Balthazar is important, and well-done without infringing on the story line. The fast-paced action and intrigue hold the readers interest and hook us nicely into needing book three ....which I now have in hand. Enjoy. ~~ Pam Allan
