Publisher's Summary

Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Holly Black, this enemies-to-lovers adventure romance should come with a book hangover warning.

All magic has a price. 

Haven survived the Devourers, but she isn’t any closer to breaking the curse. Meanwhile, her forbidden magic rages brighter and more dangerous every day. To control her powers and stand a chance against the Shade Queen, Haven made a bargain with two enemy immortals. Now, her waking hours are spent fighting alongside the Sun Lord, but her dreams belong to the Shade Lord.

Only, the closer she ventures into the wicked Shadow Kingdom, the more her magic shows itself and the more she struggles with whom to trust. The golden but wounded Sun Lord or the darkly charismatic Shade Lord. Both are off-limits. And both have the ability to save her or destroy her.

With the Shade Queen closing in and Bell’s time nearly up, Haven will sacrifice everything to break the curse, but will it be enough to stop the mortal realm from falling into darkness forever?

Welcome to the Kingdom of Runes where immortals and humans clash, light and dark magic reign, and mythical creatures lurk in the shadows. 

If you like fierce heroines, enemies-to-lovers romance, wild plot twists, and endearing characters that stay with you long after you reach the end, you need to discover the book fans are calling dark fantasy at its best. Just make sure to clear out some space on your calendar first!

A fantastic second instalment...bring on the next

***Listened to audiobook*** This book is definitely not a filler book. While I found the first book struggled to 'end' and resolve anything in the narrative, this book brought it all - love, death, betrayal, and a conclusion of sorts that ended one arc and began the next, ready to be answered in the next instalment. The characters deepened, questions and curiosities were answered and more were asked, relationships developed, and just...too many things happened to discuss in one review. I don't know if it's just the brilliant narration, but this series has definitely surprised me with how much I like it. I hope the next one releases on audiobook soon! *Audiobook review* As mentioned above, super love the narrator of this series. She's just fantastic. Definitely engaging and fits the tone of the series well.

***Brilliant and Unforgettable***

This book ripped my heart out to pieces and I'm afraid it will never be the same again. It's a heart wrenching, beautiful story with phenomenal world and character building. It's addictive and can't get enough. Vanessa Moyen is brilliant in her narrative. She brings the story to life and gives it depths and colour.

Close but I struggle

Now that I am Two books into this series I feel that have given it a really fair chance. I have a couple of problem I just can’t get past. No spoilers 1)I’m bored. The suspenseful moments are lack luster, the passionate moments are lukewarm. It’s missing intensity all around 2)often I had to refocus, reread or double check what I was reading bc I let thinking I had missed a chapter or even an entire book. Details that seem crucial to the story are just left for tot to infer and I just don’t understand why 3) many, many reviews compared it to ACOTAR, that’s bc so much of the story and details are completely ripped off and not well I might add. If I had not read those books previously I may enjoy these more but it feels too much Like cheap fan fiction

kinda disappointed

I loved oath taker and was anxiously awaiting this one to be available on audible. but the almost love triangle and cheesy flirt/almost sex scenes were really annoying. idk I just felt like this is an over dramatization of what it feels like to be kissed or touched on the inner thigh. I found myself rolling my eyes at last twice in the same paragraph. haven also became the most dislike character with her constant pig headedness.

I LOVE THIS AUDIOBOOK!!

This book had me on the edge of my seat- and frustrated I had to pause it off and on to “Adult”. All I wanted was time off from work and for my responsibilities to hold off for a day just to take it all in. Gotta love being an “Essential”! Even with being interrupted constantly I was easily able to follow the story line, and the narrator does such an amazing job of voicing the individual characters that I fell right back into where I left off. This series is definitely in my list of Top Favorites Ever- and I highly recommend it to anyone who who loves the genre of magic and destiny!

This series is EVERYTHING

I can’t say enough good things about this series, if you are on the fence about whether to continue on or not do it for your sake. I’ve read the books and the audio and I love them equally. The narrator does a great job of portraying the characters! Ugh the feels I cannot wait until the 3rd one.

THIS BOOK IS ON FIRE!!!

This is the second book in the Kingdom of Runes series. It starts right where book one ended. Haven is still on her mission to rescue Bell. Her connection between herself, the Shade Lord and the Sun Lord are getting interesting. Vanessa Moyen did an amazing job, as always. CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!

Curse breaker is the 2nd in the series

The second book in the series and another great book. Haven continues where she left off in the quest to break the curse. Definitely read the first book first so that you get more in depth background of the characters so you appreciate what is happening and developing with the characters. Lots of twist and turns all I will say is looking forward to what happens in the next book could be very interesting and fun. The story and audio was good I didn't want to stop listening to it.
