Morgance, Faer Princess of the Night.
And by her side, the fearsome Ultan Skölhammer, sworn Guardian of the Crown.
But Rhoswen, rightful heir to the throne, princess in exile, leads a final uprising from the depths of the forest, an uprising that twists together the lives of the most unlikely companions.
A notorious thief accused of a crime she did not commit.
A baird apprentice searching for the meaning of life.
A pair of brothers who can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
And a gypsy bound to the ancient artifact known only as the Vault of Dreams.
I did get this book for free for review from the author. This is not my favorite writing style. I do enjoy that it is a stand alone fantasy novel, because those seem very few and far between. I’m in love with series because you get so much more to the story, but I get tired of it as well. Im ready to move on and read something else or I’m tired of waiting for the sequel. Whatever. I like stand alones. I do love the cover of the book, and it is definitely one that would catch my eye at the store. I also like the title I would have picked it up for sure. I had a hard time getting into the story. I am usually someone that since I have so many books (over 2,000 physical books at my house, ot counting e-books) I don’t give books very long before I scrap it and move along, and this one does take a while to get used to the prose and a while to get into the story.

Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with their disappearances?
You can find Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault on Goodreads:
Candace is one of my close friends and I had the honor of reading the book early and talking with her through the whole book process. I loved this book, and the one she wrote after this. Hope there is a sequel for this one also!!!
