If you have not yet read Heir of the Curse, hurry and read that so you don’t have that experience spoiled. Captives of the Curse picks up where it leaves off and, while I’m going to be very careful about what I say here, I would hate to give away any surprises!

Jonan thought he was ready for anything—he was wrong
With the usurper defeated and Kyona’s throne secure, the responsible course would be to focus on stabilizing the kingdom.
But responsible has never been Jonan’s approach.
Bent on adventure and discovery, he sails for the South Lands, the heart of the slave trade that has plagued Kyona for centuries. But with an unforeseen magic at work, the plight of the enslaved Kyonans is much worse than he imagined.
Between the beautiful but heartless Lady Wrendal, the mysterious rebel leader Scar, and the tyrannical Overseer of Slaves, it will take more than boldness if Jonan is to survive long enough to overcome the curse keeping his countrymen captive. With the danger spreading even to Kyona, and Cal and Elnora more vulnerable than ever, Jonan might just have the fate of two kingdoms in his hands.

I loved both Jo and Cal in Heir of the Curse and was thrilled to know more of their story was yet to come.
Jo always had a desire for travel and adventure so he set off for the South Lands at his first opportunity. Even the warnings of the sailor on the ship he secured passage on didn’t deter him. Yet as he arrived in the capital city of Nohl, he found himself immediately embroiled in intrigue, rebellion, and danger! (Well, as he told Cal later, it took at least three hours before this happened!)
Oh my! I enjoyed this story so much! Jo went from being an intrepid and slightly reckless young man setting off on a lark and grew into a courageous, and – dare I call him – responsible hero.
