"You're sure about this?"

"Absolutely not, but let's do it anyway."

Banished from the only home she has ever known and still reeling from the knowledge of what she truly is, and just how many people want to kill her, Tannin has no choice but to ally with dangerous figures from her past to survive. In a stronghold ruled by wargs, Tannin must learn to step up and claim her blood heritage. As her own monstrous abilities develop, Tannin finds that she likes the taste of power. But she isn't the only one hungering for it.

Desperate to correct her past mistakes, Ava - along with Tannin's old friend Flint - leaves the safety of Armodan to follow the wargs. With her fledgling skills as a druidic healer, Ava strives to prove herself useful and earn her place in Tannin's new life. Finally free of the constraints of royal life, Ava discovers that she has only scratched the surface of her own darker powers.

But power never comes without a price.

The rise of a queen.

A cruel betrayal.

And a nation on the brink of tearing itself apart.

Schemes and treacheries are brewing and boiling over on all sides. Unraveling them seems impossible. Perhaps surviving them is too.



This is the second book in the series, so I highly recommend you read the first book REMNANTS OF BLOOD first because REMNANTS OF POWER leaves off where the first book finished and you're thrown directly into this magical world of Fae and werewolves.

I love the dynamics and wit between Tannin and Ava. They have a fun relationship and I enjoyed all the scenes between them and how the relationship is challenged throughout the book.

While the second book is based on politics, which I found is the trend in fantasy series, Cunningham does a wonderful job keeping the battles and action scenes exciting. There is so much at stake and Cunningham brilliantly has you biting your nails and turning the next page making for long, late nights of reading.

If you're looking for a new, action-packed series with high stakes, then make sure to start this series. You'll not be disappointed.
