The Fallen Prince (Keepers of Life #2) by Shea Berkley
Release Date: 25 June 2013
There is a magical realm that exists alongside the human realm, but it wasn’t always so. The firsts are beings who were created to nurture the land. The world was split into two realms, and the firsts were allowed to redeem themselves. Sadly, the majority continued with their self-indulgent behavior to the point where one of their own, a king, became so obsessed with power, he was secretly banished by the court in hopes his absence would calm the masses. But a spark of madness was ignited and not even the lost king's absence could curtail what he set in motion.
My Opinion 5 STARS

Though this book was much better than the first it was still a little on the slow side to begin with, but I guess it was needed to build the characters up a bit. Still it could have been condensed a bit.
Most of the book however is completely full of twists and turns that you entirely know who to trust. More creatures come out into the works and there is full out war and destruction in the land of Teag.
Kera and Dylan both go on their own journey, but whilst a lot is spent at the beginning in talking about Dylans irrational anger problems, they suddenly disappear not long after he comes back into Teag. No fiery mention of them, but that could be because he is so busy dealing with so many other things.
I do hope that Dylans rather does turn out to be the good guy, and I have you can't help but love the disgusting little Bodog. I do rather like the creature.
REALLY looking forward to starting book three in the series and finding how everything finishes.
