A Psalm of Storms and Silence (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin #2)
Meanwhile, the resurrection of Karina’s sister has spiraled the world into chaos, with disaster after disaster threatening the hard-won peace Malik has found as Farid’s apprentice. When they discover that Karina herself is the key to restoring balance, Malik must use his magic to lure her back to their side. But how do you regain the trust of someone you once tried to kill?
As the fabric holding Sonande together begins to tear, Malik and Karina once again find themselves torn between their duties and their desires. And when the fate of everything hangs on a single, horrifying choice, they each must decide what they value most—a power that could transform the world, or a love that could transform their lives.
A Psalm of Storms and Silence is the sequel to A Song of Wraiths and Ruins. The writer writes so epically that you can be immersed in this world and not notice that hours have flown by as you read. This world is engaged in a battle over magic, torn apart by an endless cycle of revenge and heartache. There are many impactful and beautiful quotes woven into this story. These quotes contained powerful messages reflecting current issues in our world, making the story much more meaningful.
What Let Me Wanting More:
The ending is vague in which the author weaves a short tale of what could have happened to Malik, his sisters, and Karina. What events may have unfolded to bring these two lovers back together? I thought that was a great way to end it without making it concrete or having us agonize over plot threads that were not completed.
The Final Verdict:
A Psalm of Storms and Silence is remarkable in its descriptions of the characters, the world, and the battles faced as a cycle of heartache is torn apart. I concur with most that the 3rd book for this series would be fantastic as there is a lot to work with that would make the whole thing feel finished. The lemon grove scene was my favorite as it gives a great representation of why Malik is so determined to find his sisters instead of staying with Karina. It is a bittersweet story with some heartache, but a book should make you feel everything, which delivers just that.
