In Paelsia, Magnus and Cleo reluctantly follow King Gaius to the home of his exiled mother, Selia. Selia is a powerful witch and claims she can help unlock the magic of the Kindred—if the visitors agree to her terms. When Jonas arrives from Kraeshia, he is shocked to find that his rebel army now includes his sworn enemies. Along with Nic, Felix, and the mysteriously resurrected Ashur, the contentious group agrees to cast aside old grudges—for now—and united against their common enemy: Amara.
Meanwhile, bearing the child of a Watcher and feared by all, Princess Lucia travels across Mytica to find her family. But time is running out. The impending storm signals the dark prophecy Timotheus warned her about. Her fate is written, and it includes none other than the rebel Jonas. When their paths collied, Jonas and Lucia must decide between blindly following their destiny or fighting for their own free will.
The battle for power culminates at the Paelsian palace, where Amara resides. Rain pours. Blood spills. And soon all will discover that the darkest magic comes at an even darker price.@goodreads
Okay, let me just say this two times!
I couldn't figure out whether to go with a 4 or a 5 star review so I kept it at 4.
Things that happened in this book! **NO SPOILERS**
Sooooooo, that ending. Yeah, where's the next freaking book now! OMG!
And I want to know what is going to happen to Lucia because she's got some stuff going on peeps, some stuff goin' on! I need to know what's going to come out of her!
Then we have some evil kindred dude causing all kinds of chaos, not to mention stupid Amara, how 'bout we just don't mention Amara.
Anyhoo, this evil kindred dude wants to set loose his other kindred peeps and put them in our friends bodies and who knows what the hell else from there! I mean he's this evil god dude thing and they need to defeat him and try to figure out how to fix something that he started! I'm worried about some of my other favorite characters even more now! <---- I can't say why.
And for the love of all that is holy can we get rid of King Gaius once and for all. (and Amara) He just doesn't seem to die and there are reasons people. Reasons for everything in this book. Although, I will give him a cookie for one good deed he did, he broke a neck, an evil neck. So there you go.
There are people and things that I have been leaving out of the reviews so you can meet those people and things for yourself. There are some crazy times in this series.
We have some people coming back from the dead. Some people being killed, are they going to come back from the dead, people being possessed, can we un-possess them later. I don't know anything, or how to spell so deal with it.
I really am rooting for a few people in this series and I hope they make it and things go well.
Oh and Jonas is still bumbling around being Jonas. I don't know what it is but he gets on my nerves. He's not bad he's just . . . I don't know. And now he's got some stuff going on and I'm like, NO! DO NOT DO ANYTHING COOL LIKE THAT TO HIM. Just leave him be to bumble around and do what he does. Lol. He really is a good guy, I just pick on him because he's not all that bright with the things he says and does.
So now, I have to wait another year or whatever for the next book!!!!!!!!
