It becomes a journey of danger and discovery as they are first attacked by creatures enslaved by Azdrefel then separated when Perian is kidnapped by the Souleater's servants. However, the stakes are now much higher.

Elizabeth Eaton Burton (1869–1937) was an American artist and designer whose work typified the Arts and Crafts style in southern California. Elizabeth was born in Paris, France, in 1869, to Charles Frederick Eaton and Helen Justice Mitchell. Her father was an artist and designer who worked in such media as metal, glass, and leather. He taught her drawing and the rudiments of other media, which turned out to be almost the only art training she ever received

Azdrefel the Souleater has his prize--the unborn infant of two powerful sorcerers. Randrik alt Harbinnen must rescue his wife and son before they and his world are destroyed forever. He has always won his battles, no matter the odds; but what if skill and determination aren't enough?

After finishing Dreams of Darkness, I purchased Shadow of the Scorpion for my Kindle. Miss Burton picks up where she left off and once again we enter the world under the constant threat of the Everdark. Perian and Randrik are growing and maturing as people, and both our hero and heroine are becoming stronger in character and their own unique talents. Perian has discovered her people and her heritage; Randrik has embraced his magic and learned he is a mage. Although the two of them still have some hurdles to overcome with their own personal relationship, they will not let it stand in the way of their responsibility and duty to Ashtophar and the safety of their world. As the danger and threat of the Souleater closes in, both Randrik and Perian are tested and pushed to their limits, both mentally, emotionally and physically. I was very pleased with this sequel, and the only complaint I have is the ending, one that leaves the reader hanging. Eagerly awaiting the Kindle edition of book three . . .

After fifteen years of exile, Perian Dawnstar alt Harbinnen would wish nothing more than live in peace with her people, the Drevnya nomads. But this is not possible. Together with Randrik, the man who loves her and whom she secretly loves back yet denies, she is on a quest to find the Sword of Light and destroy the souleater-Azdrefel, Lord of the Everdark-before he destroys them.

Their journey faces many obstacles. Not only is Perian pregnant and hiding the truth from Randrik, but keeping away from his alluring, powerful touch proves more difficult by the day. They must fight murderous creatures sent by Azdrefel, and keep constant guard against Watchers. To make matters worse, a price has been put to their heads and this forces Perian to drastically change her appearance in order to keep incognito.

The Lord of the Everdark has come up with a horrible plan to possess Perian and destroy Randrik and their unborn child... Will he be able to accomplish his wish before they are able to stop him?

Nominated for an Eppie 2005 Award, Shadow of the Scorpion, the much awaited sequel to Dreams of Darkness, delivers enough romance, suspense, well-drawn characterizations and flawless, elegant writing style to satisfy demanding readers. The tension between the hero and heroine is explosive and will keep readers tingling. I was able to transport myself to another place and time and become emotionally involved with these dynamic characters. This is a story that will keep you entertained for hours and will make you want to read more of this talented author's work. A must for your fantasy shelf.

"Shadow of the Scorpion," the second book in The Everdark Wars trilogy (sequel to "Dreams of Darkness") continues Burton's entertaining and engaging fantasy that pits Randrik and Perian against the god, Azdrefel. Burton fluidly combines fantasy and romance elements to make the book even richer. Most of the supporting characters are fairly well-rounded, although the evil god and his minions are completely evil with no redeeming qualities.

The execrable editing throughout the book, however, detracts from and interrupts the story. I couldn't decide between 3 1/2 and 4 stars because of the pitiful editing. I realize Zumaya Publications prints books on demand (through BookSurge); nevertheless, I consider it inexcusable that Elizabeth K. Burton, a partner (as per the blurb about the author) in Zumaya, does not insist on better editing. If nothing else, Burton must have a few friends with a good command of English who could comb through the book and correct mistakes. The first error occurs in the first line on the dedication page ("to" instead of "too")! Many sentences are incomplete, leaving the reader to fill in the missing words. Other sentences need tightening, i.e., elmination of redundancies and extra words. Past and present tense are mixed incorrectly in the same clause or sentence. Wrong words are used (a few examples: "slurring" instead of "blurring," p. 265; "him" instead of "them," p. 150; and "distant" instead of "distance," p. 139). Names of characters and places are spelled incorrectly, causing uncertainty for the reader as to which is the correct spelling. Some lines are not justified to the right margin even though the end of a paragraph has not been reached. Please fix these errors before more copies of this novel are printed.

The cover strikes me as both weird and inconsistent with the story. Although the reader does not know what planet the characters inhabit, it seems, at least in dress, tools, and weaponry, similar to Earth's 14th or 15th century. The space-age boots on the man on the front cover don't fit this time frame. I also couldn't decide whether the cover depicts Azdrefel or Randrik.

I am looking forward to the final book of the "Everdark" trilogy. I hope, however, that the book will be well-edited before printing.
