This book was basically one big WHAT?!?!?! moment after another . . . which, you know, I kind of love. LOL. What can I say? I’m a glutton for literary punishment! Kate Avery Ellison knows how to torture her readers in just the right away to keep them coming back for more.
But seriously, can Briand and Kael ever take a break? Please???!?!?
(Actually, you know I’m loving the angst, so . . . carry on!)
I loved the conflict between Briand and Auberon. He is one of the creepy Seekers, a terrifying villain and her captor, but . . . yeah. There’s a lot more to him than pure villainy. Long ago, Seekers and Dragonslayers lived peacefully together, and perhaps Auberon and Briand can find a way to resurrect some of that fellowship? Loved learning more about both the Seekers and the Dragonslayers and can’t wait to see how these revelations continue to develop as the series progresses.
Briand herself continues to grow as a heroine, and I am thoroughly enjoying her journey. Picking up Book 5 right away!
