I will confess that I started this book thinking it was the final book in the series, it wasn’t and now I am back where I was with book two, wishing that it was the release of the next book. I flew through reading this. Linda has such a way with this world that by the time you blink you are at end end and pumped up wanting more. It is invigorating.
Cyrene has gone through so much and with the pick up in this book her trials have just begun. We start right where we left off and from there I was hooked.
I have never read a series that endeared me to the bad characters more. I swear I am just like Cyrene. I can’t help but fall in love with these boys. I say boys because clearly they haven’t grow up enough to make adult decisions and continue to treat her as a prize.
I don’t know who I want this HEA to include. By the end of this book not only did I have all the emotions from those final two chapters, but I also was torn with where I wanted the story to go next. This world is so complex and inviting that the more I read the more I feel a part of it. Definitely one of my top fantasy reads of the year. I can’t wait to see where this series takes us. I hope it never ends. Or we at least get 5 more books.
After the loss of a friend and a false imprisonment in an Eleysian dungeon, Cyrene has no interest in destiny. Her heart was shattered, friends scattered, and her home is nothing but a pretty illusion. Even her magic won’t cooperate.
Only desperation can turn her to the last person she should trust:
His darkness mirrors a growing force lurking within her. A struggle she never imagined threatens to consume her. And as friends and foes begin to show their true colors, she starts questioning whether anyone is who they seem.
