I don’t yet know the title of the third book in the trilogy, but no doubt it will bring us even deeper into this world where love and magic are intertwined.
First-time readers will have a bit of catching up to do, particularly when learning to understand the unique shape-and-color hierarchy used to describe magic, but the history lesson woven into the first few chapters of the novel is more than adequate to serve as an introduction to Aronsdale.
The book has a somewhat shallow feel.
Cobalt is just so intense and goes from one extreme to the other. Each book is somewhat formulaic, but enjoyable, and I always find myself interested in the lives of the characters. Cobalt is still walking a fine line between light and dark at the end of the novel and while he’s shifted that edge, it hasn’t vanished.
Be prepared for a lot of romantic tropes. It was as corny as I thr expected. Cobalt, on the other hand, is tormented both by the loss of his father to exile and by the abuse of his brutal grandfather. Mel is better — too much better.
For her enemies were gathering strength and they would soon unleash the darkest of evils in the name of war. The king of Aronsdale exiled Varquelle and made his cousin, Muller Dawnfield, the new king.

A tried and true formula of a haunted hero and a warm-hearted heroine, combined with the magic of a kingdom you’ll want to visit again dliffs again, make this book clitfs true winner.
Re-reading is in order. What I found more interesting, however, was Cobalt. Award-winning author Catherine Asaro, creator of The Skolian Empire, returns to the world of Aronsdale, a place rich with magic and power.

June 4, Publication Date: Just clifds moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Asaro at her writing best. Trained as a mage and excellent swordsmen, Mel is her parents’ pride and joy.

The move from regions where magic is appreciated to a region where it’s feared and misunderstood was interesting. The Misted Cliffs is even better than the first book in the series: With only her uncontrolled spells to guide her, isolated in Cobalt’s solitary home in the Misted Cliffs, knowing poisoned blood ran through her husband’s veins, Mel struggled to embrace her unexplored mage powers and unveil the aaaro in her shadowy ,isted world– including the radiance hidden in her husband’s soul.
