As the last of the royal line, Johanna is the only person who can heal a magical breach in the wall that separates her kingdom of Santarem from the land of the Keepers, legendary men and women who wield elemental magic. The barrier protects Santarem from those Keepers who might try to take power over mere humans&Keepers who are determined to stop Johanna and seize the walls power for themselves.
And theyre not the only ones. As the duchys of Santarem descend into war over the throne, Johanna relies more than ever on the advice of her handsome companion, Lord Rafael DeSilva. But Rafi is a duke too, and his people come first. As their friendship progresses into the beginnings of a tender relationship, Johanna must wonder: is Rafi looking out for her happiness, or does he want the throne for himself?
With war on the horizon, Johanna and Rafi dodge treacherous dukes and Keeper assassins as they race to through the countryside, determined to strengthen the wall before its too late&even if it means sacrificing their happiness for the sake of their world.

This was an enjoyable follow up book to The Story Spinner. It was well-written and well-paced. The story is from several points of view and all the characters have a good story to tell. It was a good read in spite of the cheesy cover.

Great finish to a very unique twist on an old classical story! For all the people who read the first book you will not be disappointed. I just wish there was more I hate to see this story and it's characters finish!
