Rating: 5 Stars

Review: This book is definitely my favorite in the series (at least so far)! I was sucked into this magical story and literally stayed up way to late to finish it because I simply could not put it down.
It was gripping, action packed, emotional, and super steamy!
To start, I love our characters. Rowena and Caedmon have most definitely grown on me. Rowena is still her feisty, but strong self, and I'm so glad to see her develop this way. Caedmon has remained true to his swoon-worthy self. As a pair, they are perfect for each other. I love how the author has managed to balance the genres of fantasy and romance, they blend together perfectly.

The action scenes are well-written and had me on the edge of my seat with my heart racing. There were quite a few twists in this book and several important pieces began to fall into place.

Yet again, the book ended with a cliff-hanger (Holy Cow! What an ending!) and I was not ready to put this story aside. I can't believe that I will have to wait for the next installment AND that the next book is planned to be the last. Seriously, this book took the series to a whole new level - if you haven't started the series yet, then you really should.
Dates Read: December 30 - 31, 2013
