“I would do it again.” Lunule placed Raphere’s cold fingers between his hands, to warm them. “A thousand things I would do for your pardon.”
Events in Paz Etur have taken an ugly turn. Whispers of conspiracy and censure echo within the city. Recovering from a near-mortal wound, Raphere can do little to shield those she has sworn to protect.
As First Scout Otti embarks upon a journey east, to unravel Raphere’s past, Rant finds his own challenges waiting in Paz Ori. The dark deals he made as a mercenary cannot be dismissed, and Dark Lords are not known for patience.
Even Tranquia is beginning to have misgivings where Raphere is concerned. As strange plagues spread over the plains, and wolves prowl forever closer to the kingdoms, will Raphere have the strength to calm the ill winds churning from all directions? Will she find her closest ally in the cruelest of princes?
The imagery that the author conjours up in the preview of this book blew me away, but I haven’t completed the first 2 books yet, I have struggled to get into the story as I don’t know the characters very well.
The character of Tranquia really stood out to me as she’s the character that we’re following at the beginning, and her thoughts are the ones we get to know as the reader. When she is healing Raphere, I was drawn into what she was seeing when she joined her mind with the younger woman and the struggle to hid her own memories.
I wasn’t sure what to make of Lunule. I found him a little creepy, but I also got the vibe that he harboured strong feelings for Raphere and truly repented what had happened between them, so I could overlook his arrogance.
All in all, considering this was only a preview of a handful of chapters, I want to read more. I was intrigued enough to want to know what happens next. But, I will make sure that I go back and read through the first books of the series first so I don’t get completely lost in the action!
