A witch’s curse. A world-ending prophecy. A daring rescue mission. Don’t miss the heart-pounding finale to Calla’s story!
On the run from the Guild of Guardians, Calla Larkenwood and her team of fellow outlaws plan a daring rescue operation into the Seelie Court itself. As if that isn’t enough to keep them busy, the power-hungry Princess Angelica has begun preparations for a horrifying prophesied spell that will forever change both the magic and non-magic realms.
When Calla is blindsided by an unspeakable tragedy before the rescue can be carried out, she struggles to remain focused on her mission. She believes she’s reached her lowest point—until a witch reveals the final blow: she has cursed Calla’s magic. With time running out, can Calla save the one she loves and stop the prophecy from being carried out before the curse claims her life?
What I think:
This book left me speachless. I have no idea how Rachel Morgan does it, build such an amazing world, create kickass characters, packs the story with action and plot twists and weaves a beautiful romance through it.
Once again Calla had to endure the worst and I could feel her pain throughout the whole book. She became stronger, more confident and gave it her all to finish her part of this series.
A small detail I noticed is how Rachel manages to bring back something funny from the beginning of this series. The vine, Nigel, that appeared in the Guild in Creepy Hollow, finally got a meaning. It was only mentioned briefly, but it make me smile and stuck with me.
I also love how Violet and Ryn from the first trilogy part of this series still had a lot of importance in this story. They aren't forgotten, they're just older, but still there and just as kick-ass as always.
So man sad things happened in this book and though I'm pretty with the ending I know not everything is solved. Rachel Morgan will be back with the last three books and I know she'll crush our hearts over and over again.
The last things that made me a happy person is the romance in this book. It was always there in the background, but it was no longer hidden, it was finally out in the open and pretty much what pushed more than one person to do the impossible.
You did a great job Rachel. Can't wait for the next one.
