Waiting for Aegina by Effie Kammenou is the second book to this saga and it can be read as a standalone and there are back references to the characters from the first book so it doesn’t feel as though you re missing out but I would read Evanthia’s Gift first. It is a well crafted story and the world in which Effie has created is something you can imagine. This story pulls on a lot of emotions and is a lot more power packed and dramatic than Evanthia’s Gift and is an honest and heartfelt portrayal of a young Greek girl who is now a woman and her friends and is told by the main character’s point of view. All in all Waiting for Aegina is a really enjoyable read.
