Blurb: Eoin is faced with the End of Times. With his friends at his side, can he rescue the prisoner that might hold the secrets to winning the battle between Cariad and City as well as the key to his heart?
His bond brothers, Kian and Darach, probably hate him for his necessary lie, two-thirds of the Council wants him dead, and the prisoner’s amber Fire is killing them both.
The third book in the Fire Trilogy discovers more old Guardians, ancient Cariad magik and, not least of all, the other half of Eoin: Trystyn.
Review: This is the concluding story to The Fire Trilogy and R.J. Scott doesn’t let us down. If you haven’t read the others in the series, then you need to for this one to make sense.
Eoin is the Guardian of the City but all isn’t well. He knows that two members of the council are conspiring to take his Amber fire to prolong their own lives and he also knows that the previous Guardian is building an army to take revenge on the council. He has to stop all of this as well as find his bond mate and save him. Trystyn disappeared several years ago and in all that time he has been held by Wynn, the old Guardian, who has been stealing his Amber fire. When he is rescued he has to make Eoin realize that all six of them together can defeat Wynn and the council.
I found this book brilliant. The way that Eoin takes responsibility because he doesn’t want any danger coming to his friends even though he hasn’t seen them in years is incredibly sweet. Trystyn is an extremely strong character who makes me wish this book was longer so we could get to know him better. There is a lot more action in this book as it wraps up everything so there are no loose ends and it is done brilliantly and the writing is smooth.
I recommend that if you love hot men, magic, a bit of danger and a fantastic ending then this is definitely for you.
