Blurb: In less than a week, Bennet will finally return to the Shield Regiment, leaving behind the Gyrfalcon, his father, his friends… and Flynn. Promotion to Shield Major and being given command of a battle group despite the political fallout from Makepeace the year before is everything he thought he wanted. Everything he’s worked towards for the last three years. Except for leaving Flynn. He really doesn’t want to leave Flynn.
There’s time for one last flight together. A routine mission. Nothing too taxing, just savouring every moment with the best wingman, the best friend, he’s ever had. That’s the plan.
Bennet should know better than to trust to routine because what waits for them out there will change their lives forever.
Review: I love an author who is not afraid to take out characters. Sometimes that is called for in a story. The author does a wonderful job in this story as the fate of everyone rests in their hands. The story was wonderful. Edge of your seat battles and twists and turns that took me by surprise. The betrayal, I never saw coming so was pleasantly blindsided.
It was a perfect blend of chaos, harmony, betrayal and suspense all woven into one exciting book.
The overall feel is one of completeness. I loved everything about the descriptions and backgrounds as the story progressed. The series has no shortage of information given as to why certain things happened and why.
Flynn and Bennet have come so far together in this series. I loved their characters and trials they have been through to get to this exciting conclusion. I am sad to see this end but that is just the way it is with a good series.
