Meira will do anything to save her world. With Angra trying to break through her mental defenses, she desperately needs to learn to control her own magic—so when the leader of a mysterious Order from Paisly offers to teach her, she jumps at the chance. But the true solution to stopping the Decay lies in a labyrinth deep beneath the Season Kingdoms. To defeat Angra, Meira will have to enter the labyrinth, destroy the very magic she’s learning to control—and make the biggest sacrifice of all.
Mather will do anything to save his queen. He needs to rally the Children of the Thaw, find Meira—and finally tell her how he really feels. But with a plan of attack that leaves no kingdom unscathed and a major betrayal within their ranks, winning the war—and protecting Meira—slips farther and farther out of reach.
Ceridwen will do anything to save her people. Angra had her brother killed, stole her kingdom, and made her a prisoner. But when she’s freed by an unexpected ally who reveals a shocking truth behind Summer’s slave trade, Ceridwen must take action to save her true love and her kingdom, even if it costs her what little she has left.
As Angra unleashes the Decay on the world, Meira, Mather, and Ceridwen must bring the kingdoms of Primoria together…or lose everything. @goodreads
DEAR BOOK COVER.....
Well, it's over . . . Winter, Autumn, Summer, Spring. Yeah, I went backwards.
So many people die. That's what happens in a war. People you love, like, hate.
Meira is taken in by Rares and his wife, Oana. They are part of the Order of the Lustrate. Not only do they give Meira a few revelations, they teach her how to use her power to the fullest. How to control herself. How to defeat Angra and his Decay.
I love that more people came together to help the Winterians in the battle against Angra. I love there was a happy ending for a few people but was very saddened at some of the people that died.
There really isn't a whole lot for me to say without giving out spoilers. This is one of those books that ever little thing leads to a spoiler with me. I can be simple and say there was the war, there were deaths, there were good things, there were bad things. Meira did see her mother again, in a sense.
I was very happy with the overall ending, obviously not with the deaths, but with Meira, Mather and Theron and the kingdoms.
I will always love the Winter kingdom the best. Not because of who's in it, but for my love of Winter and having places with seasons in a book was pretty awesome to me. ♥
