Librarian turned sorcerer. Sorcerer turned hero. Hero turned puppet.
The Solaris Empire found victory in the North and, at the cost of her heart and her innocence, Vhalla Yarl has earned her freedom. But the true fight is only beginning as the secret forces that have been lurking in the shadows, tugging at the strings of Vhalla’s fate, finally come to light. Nowhere is safe, and Vhalla must tread carefully or else she’ll fall into the waiting arms of her greatest foe. Or former lover.
“Love is far better to know, even if it slips from your grasp or doesn’t bear fruit like you’d hope. People who say they regret love, true love, are just bitter liars.”
My heart broke a lot in this installment. There is even more heartache than previous books but I am hopeful the final book will stitch it all back together.
I’m loving getting to know Jax more. He has a lot of comedic moments, but a lot of darkness as well. Aldrik is really growing and it makes me love our prince even more.
I had a feeling our twist in this book was heading the way it was, but man it still was rough watching it all go down. Cannot wait to see how Vhalla’s story ends… and who makes it there.
