Clara’s Return (Book 2 of the Stories of Lorst) by Suzanna J. Linton


Clara, lost and disillusioned from the civil war, hopes to discover answers about her lineage and abilities in the quiet village of Bluebell, where she once lived before being sold into slavery. However, as she and the Captain of the Royal Guard make their journey, a new threat to the kingdom arises in the form of a traitor.

Patiently brewing since the fall of the sorceror-king Marduk, there are careful plans now coming to fruition. Riots break out, a giant is sighted, and double agents quietly take their places. King Emmerich’s struggles with his new role and his ever-present nightmares leave him feeling inadequate to the task. What he needs most is Clara.

“The characters continued to be well-developed, the intrigue kept the pages turning quickly as I sought to see if I could figure out what would happen next. The magical world that has been created is truly amazing and could easily be imagined. I hope to someday see it onscreen and that's not something I say often. I HIGHLY recommend this series.” — Amy Weidenaar
