Plague of Death by D.L. Armillei is the second book in the Anchoress Series. Vanessa Cross wants more of a challenge in her life and puts all her focus on her training but when she wipes out on her surfboard, it sparks a chain of events that leads her battling demons. Her protector’s sister remains missing in the Living World and the tension remains with Brux. She’s still struggling to determine her role as the Anchoress and what this will mean for her destiny, which is put to the test when she and the team set out to repair a damaged seal. As they embark on their journey, they find unexpected trouble when they encounter Prince Ferox, a mysterious illness falls upon them, they discover sea monsters, call on a fairy, and face pirates on Outlaw Island and a deadly enemy.

Vanessa is facing new dangers and a dark enemy in this exciting sequel to Shock of Fate. Vanessa’s life has become way more complicated. Those she trains with don’t take it as seriously as she does. The path ahead of her is one that could fall to darkness, and she’s closed herself off to potential romance. The relationship with her protector has a great deal of friction while also having a genuine friendship and respect which gives their dynamic some heart. Weaving in is the added complication of a potential love triangle when they encounter Prince Ferox. Author D.L. Armillei opens Vanessa to new possibilities. She struggles with this unexpected connection and is torn as to whether she can trust him.

Vanessa faces several obstacles as she and her team set out to close the tear, which ranges from complications between each other to a mysterious illness that starts infecting those around her. They face off with several dangers that increase as the adventure unfolds with pirates, sea monsters, fairies, and demons along the way to an even greater enemy. Plague of Death is a charming YA read full of action-packed scenes, an emotional journey, complicated romance, surprises, and an adventure that brings her closer to facing her destiny. This is the perfect read for fans of YA action, adventure, and fantasy.
