A stolen throne. A lost princess. A rescue mission to take back what’s theirs.
For Kunal and Esha, finally working together as rebels, the upcoming Sun Mela provides the perfect guise for infiltrating King Vardaan’s vicious court. Kunal returns to his role as dedicated soldier, while Esha uses her new role as adviser to Prince Harun to seek allies for their rebel cause. A radical plan is underfoot to rescue Jansa’s long-lost Princess Reha—the key to the throne.
But amidst the Mela games and glittering festivities, much more dangerous forces lie in wait. With the rebel’s entry into Vardaan’s court, a match has been lit, and long-held secrets will force Kunal and Esha to reconsider their loyalties—to their countries and to each other.
Getting into the palace was the easy task; coming out together will be a battle for their lives. In book two of Swati Teerdhala’s epic fantasy trilogy, a kingdom will fall, a new ruler will rise, and all will burn.

Our Review

*We received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

I adored The Tiger at Midnight and while I didn’t love The Archer At Dawn as much there were a lot of high points that I think are work mentioning. I will definitely be picking up the third book in the trilogy when it comes out.

Teerdhala’s writing is simultaneously lush and concise. I loved Esha and Kunal’s relationship in the first novel and we pick up right where we left off at the end of Tiger. However, the love triangle that was hinted at in the first novel takes center stage as Esha once again crosses paths with her childhood friend Prince Harun. I am unsure about which team I am but the ending definitely questioning everyone’s motives.

The pacing was solid even though Archer was setting things up for the final installment of the trilogy and it was definitely the exception to the struggle I have with second novels in trilogies/series.

While Kunal returns to his role as a soldier with a mission of his owns, Esha comes back as an advisor to Huran, keeping her finger on the pulse of shifting political alliances. But during the peace summit and Sun Mela festival, forces with malicious intentions and secret plots come on the scene, putting everyone’s chances of survival in jeapordy

. Overall I gave this awesome sequel 4 stars and recommend it for fans of Sabaa Tahir and SA Chakraborty.
