Wilde's Army by Krystal Wade
Those two words spark fear in Katriona Wilde and give way to an unlikely partnership with Perth, the man she's been traded to marry for a favour. Saving her true love and protector Arland, her family, and their soldiers keeps her motivated, but the at-odds duo soon realises trust is something that comes and goes with each breath of Encardia's rotting, stagnant air. The moment when concern for her missing sister spirals out of control, all thoughts of trust are pushed aside and she finds herself trapped by the daemon tricks Perth warned her of.
However, rescuing those she loves is only half the problem.
Kate still must get to Willow Falls, unite her clashing people, and form an army prepared to fight in order to defeat Darkness. When so many she's grown fond of die along the journey, her ability to play by the gods' rules is tested.
How will she make allies when the world appears stacked against her? And will she still be Katriona Wilde, the girl with fire?
Release Date 4th July 2012
Wilde's Army takes off exactly where Wilde's Fire stops. Kate has to trust Perth to help her save all her new friends and her family then get to Willow Falls for more help to fight Darkness. Along the way, she loses friends and almost loses her own life. Then she has to play happy girlfriend with Perth to fool his dad so he doesn't try to kill Arland.
I really didn't know whether to trust Perth or not, and I'm still not sure if he's on the level or not. I'm still enjoying Arland and Kate's relationship and how it's progressing, but I wish Kate would get along better with her mother. I get that she's kept loads from her and still does, blah blah, but she has to realise that there's a reason for it. Also Kate's sister, Brit, is kind of annoying and I'm still not certain whether I like her or not. Only time (and more books) will tell.
