Blurb: With their love stronger than ever and their need for revenge burning, Eamon and Alik will face their most difficult choices yet.
Their enemy pushes too close for comfort. Negotiations fall through after tempers flare and lies are exposed.
When a stranger arrives in their court, Alik can’t help but wonder if there is more to his offer of help than to be seen. The passion of Alik and Eamon’s love is threatened by the newcomer and Alik can’t help but wonder where Eamon’s true loyalties lie.
When Eamon finds himself captured and alone, he must face his greatest fear: Will he fail his people and his country and leave Alik alone to fight this war?
After all is said and done, will all the sacrifices they made be worth the cost of the throne?.
Review: There are a few surprises in this addition that I was ecstatic about when they happened. Alik is not happy when Sir Clifton is added to the ranks of the army as he sees someone who wants Eamon. Eamon for his part assures Alik over an over he’s the only one he wants.
Plans are made to take out the Vrseal army when the negotiations go south. Then all breaks loose when Eamon and Milet are captured when they attempt to return to Eamon’s home. They have a stowaway on board which sends chaos in motion to those Eamon leaves behind and so they go after the stowaway praying they make it in time.
Edge of your seat and nail biting, this addition is a continuation of the previous books. I loved everything about it from the way Alik and Eamon are to the bad guys to the end. Fantastic series to read.
