Across the Long Sea by Sarah Remy
The gripping follow-up to Stonehill Downs
As the most valuable asset in the kingdom of Wilhaiim, Malachi Doyle has many responsibilities—protector, assassin, detective, and King Renault's right-hand man. And until he met Avani in the cursed village of Stonehill Downs, he believed he was the last of his kind: a magus who can communicate with the dead.
But Wilhaiim is left vulnerable when Mal and his page, Liam, are kidnapped and ferried across the Long Sea to a warring kingdom in search of its own magus. To make matters worse, a springtime plague is rapidly spreading, and beneath the earth the sidhe are preparing for war. With Mal missing and presumed dead, Avani reluctantly takes his place as Wilhaiim's magus. But her powers are unreliable and untested, her many allies are treacherous, and she is certain Mal is alive. Will she be able to keep Wilhaiim—and herself—safe?
At the beginning of the book Wilhaiim, Malachi Doyle was my favorite character he was a protector, assassin, detective, and a King's right-hand man. He literally filled every role my favorite character's normally do in numerous other novels. However as the story continued onward I found myself liking Avani. I liked how Avani was a strong character even though she was untrained. I liked how she fought to keep herself and those to close to her alive no matter what. I truly enjoyed reading this book and I would recommend it to those who enjoy books with assassins, detectives, and magic users. The book covers quite a diverse range of genres and yet they all fit together like a puzzle.
