I was an ordinary girl, living an ordinary life, until I sold my soul to save my mother. Now, I am forced to choose between my heart and my conscience.
Either way, someone I love will die.
It is a series.
Sometimes I don’t know who is good and who is bad in this story, which I guess is a good thing. I mean Ari goes with her gut most of the time, but gets stuck having to pick the lesser of two evils.This is not your typical good little girl that needs to be constantly saved by a paranormal being. It is a good girl that is emotional, physically, and mentally strong. She doesn’t let people steam roll her, nor does she waver with her heart. She is a true friend and honest to her word. Very likable protagonist.
“The magic of our people is dying,” She says. “When the demons came from the sky and slaughtered the High Fae, the Spirits left us.”
“There are five and they go by many names. We call them Riku, Wadu, Tauren, Zyra, and Yami. Riku is fire, passion, and the shaping of truth. Wadu is water, peace, and healing. Tauren is earth, strength, and life. Zyra is wind, knowledge, and wisdom. And Yami…Yami is all of them, and non of them. Yami is Life. Death. Balance. Hope. He has more names than the others. One you have heard…the Midnight Star.”
Fen. I mean OMG. That guy just can’t get a break. At the end of the story finding out who and what his true identity is and leaving us hanging was So NOT COOL! After about half way through the book, I couldn’t put it down. I was sucked into this constant tug of war between the Durid (Fae gods) and the vampire prince brothers. Asher has so many people fooled, but I am wondering what he would pick if he didn’t have his father and brothers breathing down his neck.
I am surprised by how many same-sex relationships are in this story. We have Fae, Vampires and humans all in love with each other. It seems like there is a constant theme that it doesn’t matter what – your exterior look may be; your back ground; where you came from; or, who you are united with – it is all about what your heart is and who your soul is connected too. We get that with Fen and Ari; Asher and Varius; Madrid and Oren…etc.
