Return to the darkly beautiful world of The Sin Eater’s Daughter with a sequel that will leave you awed, terrified . . . and desperate for more. Ever since her brother Lief disappeared, Errin’s life has gone from bad to worse. Not only must she care for her sick mother, she has to scrape together rent money by selling illegal herbal cures. But none of that compares to the threat of the vengeful Sleeping Prince whom the Queen just awoke from his enchanted sleep. When her village is evacuated as part of the war against the Sleeping Prince, Errin is left desperate and homeless. The only person she can turn to is the mysterious Silas, a young man who buys deadly poisons from Errin, but won’t reveal why he needs them. Silas promises to help Errin, but when he vanishes, Errin must journey across a kingdom on the brink of war to seek another way to save her mother and herself. But what she finds splits the world as she knows it apart, and with the Sleeping Prince drawing nearer, Errin must make a heartbreaking choice that could affect the whole kingdom…
The Sleeping Prince is the second book in The Sin Eater’s Daughter series. I read The Sin Eater’s Daughter in Summer 2016 and had no problems jumping back into this beautiful world.
I have to admit before starting this book I didn’t really read the blurb so was completely shocked when I realised that I was reading about a different set of characters. I didn’t have probably loving these characters as Melinda made it very easy!
The Sleeping Prince has such a good plot and a fantastic ending. I normally find the second in a book quite hard to read but I flew through this in less than a day! I’m so glad that I can now go and read The Scarecrow Queen without having to wait!
