Nathan Grier returns from the Veil a changed man. The consequences of his time with Malak, the dark sidhe king, and the deal made to free him may be more than he can bear. The weakening of the Veil and new enemies foretell of a greater battle still ahead.
With Nathan’s brother Jim now an Awakened changeling, and Nathan’s role in Malak’s plans finally revealed, Nathan’s love for fae hunter and incubus, Sasha Kelly, may not be enough to save him after all.
This is book three in the series and the conclusion to an amazing urban fantasy tale. You really can’t read this without having read the first two books in the trilogy. Events and scenes from the previous two books were referenced in this book, so you will be lost without having read them. With all three books available now, it makes sense to read through the entire trilogy back to back. And I highly recommend you read them. You won’t be disappointed!
Gearing up for the ultimate battle between light and dark, Nathan must take the helm. His destiny lies in leading the light in war between good and evil.. Sound familiar? Yep, this book reminded me of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows in that sense. There is a battle, there is lots of spells and curses thrown about. There is a lot of deception, trickery and let’s not forget, deal making. That what got Nathan in this mess to begin with.
But this story is definitely not for kids. Besides the romance between Nathan and Sasha, both male, this story had darker elements and more gore, but as always good (or light) prevails.
I really liked the scene with the Almighty Dave, and his diner, when Nathan meets him for the first time. Being that Nathan was the only one, you just knew that all wasn’t what it seemed. But that seems to happen a lot throughout the story. Because of Nathan’s struggle to separate what he experienced in the Veil and what is real, there are moments when you just have to wonder what the truth really is.
This story kept me on the edge of my seat. There was always a new discovery or plot twist just waiting in the story to throw a monkey wrench into everything and make me rethink all the ideas I just had on where the story was going.
There is a moment during the story that Nathan takes another form and the descriptions as he learns to navigate as this other form are amazing. And the interactions between Nathan and Sasha when Sasha is feeding off their sex are so potent. Their love really shines in this book, more so than in the previous ones I think. Nathan’s relationship with both Sasha and Jim are powerful and it comes through clearly.
If you enjoy the magical, the paranormal, fae, and epic battles you will love this series and this book. It brought closure to the story. It was a culmination of everything that has been building since book one when Nathan set out to save his brother from turning evil and met the love of his life in the form of an incubus.
