Dax finally gets to see Kastain in all his glory— regal, confident, powerful and downright sexy. As events unfold, Dax and Kastain realize everything happening with the Derin, with Martellon, Nestor and Teriva, is linked. Their enemies draw closer and the plots and machinations of the Conclave deepen. They just need to work out who is behind it all and what they hope to gain.
Kastain finds himself turning to Dax, the one person he seems to be able to count on more than anything. The bond between the two leaders is stronger than they expected, and they long for rare times alone so they can explore it. Instead their time is taken up trying to work out which Chieftains they can count on and who is attempting to undermine them at every turn.
When plots and betrayals run deep within the heart of the capital, who will succeed and who will pay the ultimate price?

Review: Each book in the Avanti Chronicles collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.
This has got to be one of the best stories I have come across in quite a while. So much so that I can see me reading this series more than once. Hannah Walker has created a unique world that is not only full of love, but hate, betrayal, anger, lust, deceit, excitement, action, adventure and danger. There are not many long novels that I find that I can get into, but this is one that I could not put down. As soon as I got off work I started reading and kept it up all the way.
Teriva is up to no good once again. She couldn’t get what she wanted from the others so her plan is to go after the king. Too bad for her he king is protected by not only family but by the one who loves him. Dax and the others are slowly realizing that all that is going on is connected. From the attacks on the villages, to Teriva and Nester’s plots. However they don’t take in account that the Avanti will do everything in their power to keep everyone safe. Now all they have to do is to find out who is behind it all.
This story was an amazing addition to the series and I was glad to have had a chance to read it. I love that the king doesn’t care who thinks what, when he falls in love with not just a man but an outworlder. They are strong in more ways than one, but they are able to let their shields down and show emotion, pain and fears. The way these guys have grown has been amazing and I was absolutely happy when Hunter and Bell’s family is being brought to them. I also think I know the answer to who is behind it, but we will see.
These guys were perfect as were the others. This is one series where all the characters are needed to make the whole story rock. I love how they are all equal even when in the story they really are not. I mean you have king that is just another man to the others and that makes it even better. Not to mention his sister rocks.
The only part I hated was the death of one my hottie guys. I really don’t think that part was needed and I think he should have been saved. It brought the book down in my eyes. However other than that little issue this is one story that I will definitely read over and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.
