The sequel to the New York Times–bestselling and National Book Award longlisted Walk on Earth a Stranger

After her harrowing journey west to California, Lee Westfall has finally found a new home—one rich in gold, thanks to her magical power, a power that seems to be changing every day. But this home is rich in other ways, too: with friends who are searching for a place to be themselves, just as she is, and with love. Jefferson—her longtime best friend—hasn’t stopped trying to win her heart. And Lee is more and more tempted to say yes.

But her uncle Hiram hasn’t given up his quest to get Lee and her power under his control. When she’s kidnapped and taken to him, Lee sees firsthand the depths of her uncle’s villainy. Yet Lee’s magic is growing. Gold no longer simply sings to her, it listens. It obeys her call. Is it enough to destroy her uncle once and for all?

Rae Carson, acclaimed author of the Girl of Fire and Thorns series, takes us deep into the gold fields as she continues this sweeping saga of magic and history, and an unforgettable heroine who must come into her own. Like a River Glorious is the second book in the Gold Seer trilogy.

Rae Carson is the author of the acclaimed Girl of Fire and Thorn series. Her debut novel, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, was named a finalist for the William C.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Sequel This book was just as good as the first, if not better. I loved every part! Can't wait to see how the story ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Sequel Another fantastic book in this great series! Though slower around the middle, this was nonetheless and exciting adventure with a terrific heroine in a unique setting. There was lots of tension and intrigue, as well as new characters who definitely left an impression. The danger was definitely amplified and left to a pretty intense climax. Though it was gross at times, I was actually highly engaged during the confrontations between Lee and her uncle. He was really creepy and a superbly written villain. I also really loved watching Lee's powers expand and grow as she fought for her loved ones. Even more compelling was her growth as a character. She was smart and kind and was thankfully a character who was willing to seek help rather than do everything herself. There are truly no complaints I can make because these books just keep getting more and more exciting! Can't wait to see how it all wraps up!

Editorial Reviews

“Carson’s alternate Gold Rush-era setting is fierce and brutal...The socio-politics, too, are complicated.”
