At last, Alexa and King Damian are engaged to be married. But their lives are far from safe. The kingdom of Antion is under siege, and Rylan is a prisoner of the enemy. Even worse, Alexa remains at the mercy of the evil Dansiian Rafe, who controls her mind and can force Alexa to kill or harm Damian at any moment. Despite this, Alexa is determined to rescue Rylan, which soon leads her far from Damian and deep into enemy territory.
When she arrives, what awaits her is deadlier than anything she could have ever imagined: an army of black sorcerers, and a horrifying plot to destroy the world as Alexa knows it. Will she be able to gather the strength to free herself, protect the love of her life, and save the land? Will there ever be true peace?
I have serious issues with this book. Overall, I like it, but it wasn't what I was waiting for. I wanted so many things to be different. I'm dissapointed, because I loved the past two books a lot and this book let me down.
The problem might have been that I didn't remember well how the last book ended, but it was clarified after a few chapters inside this book. The problem might have been, that every single scene of this book was expected. I knew what was going to happen, dammit. The problem might have been all the descriptions. I didn't want descriptions, I wanted action. The problem might have been all the deaths. So many characters died, that I don't really know who was left alive. Every single character that I liked died and it that did not went well with me. The problem might have been the little romance of it, which is not a big issue with me (because this is fantasy, not romance), but I wanted some swoon scenes like in the last books (I did find one, tho). The problem might have been that I expected too much of this book. I actually thought that it was going to be out of this world, but high expectations bring let downs. The problem might have been the end. It wasn't as happy as I thought it was going to be.
*sighs* It was a good read. The battles were good. The descriptions (even though I hated them) were beautiful. The feelings were well written. The characters keep their characteristics. I was just asking too much. Actually, I recommend the series, but do not expect something super.
