A royal wedding. A fiery heroine. And a brazen act of sabotage that could topple a kingdom.
It has been five months since Clarabelle Weaver saved the life of the infamous Great Lord and happily accepted his unexpected marriage proposal. With their wedding less than a week away, she is finally stepping into the unfamiliar world beyond her village to face nobility she never knew existed.
But it's not only them who are interested in her presence.
The enemy is also stirring for this historic occasion. Their focus not on the man they see as their reviled "Dark Lord", but on her as the young woman who supposedly carries his heir.
Clara must weave a path through attempted assassinations and poisonings whilst also proving to the court that she's suitable to become their ruler's Great Lady… all before taking their vows. But has her training prepared her for an attack that could send the kingdom into war?

DARK ONE'S BRIDE continues where book one (Dark One's Mistress) finished, with a five-month gap. We rejoin Clara as she travels to Endlight to be reunited with Lucias and prepare for their wedding. Attitudes need to be adjusted all round, as Lucias needs to realise he can't just throw his life away recklessly, and Clara has to join in with the other noblewomen.
It was great to see Brenna had improved from book one. I found her to be a bit too obvious in that book, so to see this new side of her was delightful. I just hope she remains trustworthy in the last book.
There is a lot of action in this book, with many assassination attempts on Clara. There is also Thalia giving birth to Thad's son, which freaks Clara out as it doesn't go 'normally'. I found this to be refreshingly honest! How many 17-year-olds do you know that would accept that sort of birth without it raising concerns and questions?!?!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, but I want Clara and Lucias to return to the Citadel. Endlight is good, but the Citadel is their home. This book does end on a cliffhanger so I'm hoping book three won't be long to arrive.
Absolutely recommended by me.
