Thank you Rhys! I swear, Rhys' books never disappoint, and this, the 3rd in the series that stars my favourite of her characters certainly followed suit.
I don't quite know what to say, except that Kai is his usually cranky, soft-hearted, brave, cynical self and I still am in love with him. :) I was happy that his relationship with Ryder, the elfin lord made some progression. I love their banter, I love what's unsaid between them and I love how they have each others' backs, no matter what. Ryder makes me chuckle.
I was also happy to get the chance to know Cari a little better. I wish she'd had a little more to do though and that we could have explored her special power a tad. But she's a ballsy young lady and I quite enjoy her. The new character of Kerrick was interesting - Ryder's cousin yet so very unlike Ryder. And then there was Bannon who I found even MORE interesting. No doubt we'll be seeing more of her in future books. And we got the chance to visit with that uber crankass, Dempsey. I enjoyed that too.
So there was adventure, some sadness, some great fights, some romance, some growing social awareness and loyalties being forged stronger. It was a thrill ride and I loved it! And then with that cliffhanger! Holy Crap!! It's going to feel like FOREVER until the next one!
