Seed of Scorn is the second book in the series that began with Rise of the Nazil and this series just keeps getting better and better. Pentanimir is now the Zaxon, the leader of the Nazil and is facing many challenges. Brahanu is his wife even though she is not of Nazil. Factions of the population are still causing unrest, unable to accept his rule.
His brother, Danimore, has his own issues. Nikolina, the woman that he scorned in favor of the former slave, Zeta, takes her revenge on the couple. In doing so, she unleashes an other-worldly peril that might impact the entire world. Some new characters are introduced and their stories only add to the complex world that Hall has created. Ahvixx and Sahma are a young couple that become involved in the politics of the capital city.
The story has become more complex, yet the pace never falters and it draws you even further into this detailed and interesting world. New evil in the form of Lilinth appears to threaten the fragile peace of the land. The Guardians face new challenges and depend on the sons of Pentanimir and Brahanu.
I can't wait for the next book as this unique series continues to surprise and entertain me. I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
