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?

In a world on the brink of a power struggle involving dark forces, there's no time to waste.
Author Michelle Diener pens THE SILVER PEAR, which is the action-packed conclusion to the story that made its debut in The Golden Apple.
Full of witches, wizards and all types of magic-wielding creatures, THE SILVER PEAR picks up where the other story ended. A war fought with magic is about to break out, which means Kayla has to quickly test out her newly developed skills as she and Rane make plans for an epic battle. They no longer have the golden apple to use as a tool since it fell into the hands of the enemy.
The author builds the story around a sorceress named Miri who has a silver pear that is equipped with magical qualities. She and Rane's brother, Soren, encounter numerous challenges at the hands of the enemy.
The story moves forward at a quick pace as the pieces for a final showdown fall into place. The romantic elements between the characters are well integrated into the story, which enables the main storyline to move forward with no interruption.
As with the first installment, this story gives the reader a nice taste of a fantasy world without any of the complexities.
