An unlikely princess . . .

Kayla is determined to master her new-found abilities as a wild magic witch. She's learning everything she can so she and her betrothed, Rane, can put a stop to the sorcerers who are recklessly gathering their power, building up their magic to take each other on in a war that will destroy the countries of Middleland.

An even more unlikely sorcerer . . .

Mirabelle's father was one of the greatest sorcerers in Middleland, but when he used the magic in the silver pear to bespell his pregnant wife to give birth to the greatest sorcerer who would ever live, he never thought that child would be a girl. Mirabelle is nothing like a usual sorcerer, confounding every expectation, and when she comes to the rescue of Rane's brother, Soren, she makes a decision few sorcerers would. She saves him, rather than herself, losing the silver pear in the process.

And using magic always exacts a price . . .

With war not just a possibility but simply a matter of time, there are no neutral parties and no fence-sitters in Kayla and Mirabelle's new world. Everyone is either an ally or an enemy and there is a price to pay for everything. The question is, how high will it be?

The Silver Pear (The Dark Forest #2)My Review
The Silver Pear by Michelle Diener
An epic battle is coming, magic versus magic, good versus evil, is there still time for romance? A tale that began with The Golden Apple is continued in Michelle Diener’s The Silver Pear with all of the tension, the suspense and magic created that Ms. Diener’s gift with words can create.

Kayla and Rane travel in search of Rane’s brother, Soren. Kayla has new powers to train, to control and there is a time limit, the war is coming, the pressure is on.
Mirabelle, a young sorceress is in possession of the Silver Pear and now holds the power of Wild Magic from the Great Forest, making her one of the most powerful magic users. Soren is by her side, a protector, a companion and sometimes a distraction. As the two couples finally unite, Kayla and Mirabelle must learn to trust each other and share their magic, but will it be enough to conquer evil?

Michelle Diener truly writes for her readers, from the first page, where she runs through the story from The Golden Apple to the last page of The Silver Pear, there is magic in her words. She has built a world that comes to life from the darkness of the forest to the cold, dampness of a prison cell; I felt was there, in the story, in her world, a part of everything that was going on. From moments of quiet to moments of magic sizzling through the air, this tale is alive and breathing! Carefully weaving two tales together into one great tale, she brings her characters together perfectly and ties of each separate strand into one amazing tale.

I received this copy from Michelle Diener in exchange for my honest review.
