The sequel to The Traitor’s Kiss continues to follow the exploits of the multi-talented Sage who fell in love with Captain Alex Quinn during their successful efforts to thwart an enemy invasion. Sage is living a secure life as tutor to the royal children but sees Alex only when his missions require him to report to the King. Now there are suspicions of another invasion attempt and Alex is sent off in command of special forces to spy and repel the enemy. Sage talks her way into going along and she is extremely invaluable in negotiating with bordering nations.
Another adventure with Sage. I can’t imagine anyone not liking her. She is genuine and brave and rather handy to have around. Almost too perfect for a character but fun to read. This book does feel more like a bridge to the third book. There didn’t seem to be a significant plot. At the end, everyone is set up for the next installment with new postings from the King. No real cliffhanger here and the storyline is not as intense as the first book.
