Continuing the Shaudrey Universe series is Spirit’s Lullaby, the second book of the series. The story is set five years after the first book, Fire’s Song and it continues the story of Tella whom we met for the first time in Fire’s Song as a precocious teenager. Tella is grown now, and is partnering with Lydia in slaying demons. The voice of Tella is quite distinct from that of Key and the author must be applauded for bringing distinctive voices to each of these protagonists. Tella is also characterised by the same independent, questioning spirit that Key had, and her humour is less subtle. Again, we have angels and demons and other magical creatures. The theology that was touched upon in Fire’s Song is further deepened and explained here. Faced with a conspiracy of global proportions, Tella must find answers in order to save the world. With the help of Lydia and Danielle who also shares Tella’s ability to see spirits, angels and demons, Tella battles to save everyone from the demons’ domination. With cameo appearances from Key, Lee, Emmyth and Kegan, Spirit’s Lullaby is much darker in tone than Fire’s Song and even more interesting. J E Mueller has penned a bestseller here and Spirit’s Lullaby is a must read for fans of the fantasy genre.
