“Magick and destiny intertwine as he fights to save his kingdom and the goddess he loves.
Her kiss…the feel of her skin…the beat of her heart…For seventeen-year-old Kellen St. James, each memory is marred by a single sentence on a lone strip of paper.
Cali has been taken…
Armed with an amulet that channels the ultimate power of Faerie, Kellen searches for his love. However, control of the amulet’s energy comes with a price, and Kellen soon learns that Cali’s captor has plans for the stone. With the threat of the Star Catcher’s evil looming above Kellen and his kingdom, he’ll have to free the Heart of Faerie and break the curse the binds the Children of Danu to the darkness. But before that, he has to find his real father, the king. No pressure, right?
Kellen and Cali will battle bewitched armies and unknown foes as they fight to stay together. Will Kellen embrace his immortal destiny? Or will his world, and the man he is fated to become, be destroyed by The Star Catcher?”
“One of the best endings in a trilogy I have seen in a while. Fans will not be disappointed!”-Jackie Jackson, The Book Maven
Firstly I’d like to thank the author for sending me this eBook to read and give an honest review. I’m a big fan of this series and you can read my previous reviews here.
This final book picked up where book two, The Fallen Stars, left off. Cali had been taken and Kellen was desperate to find her. In no time at all I was pulled back into the magical storyline, once again filled with danger and romance.
Even after two books the characters were still developing right before my eyes as they learned more and more about themselves and their families. For me the characters were all likeable, especially the strong supporting characters and even the bad guys seemed to spark something in me! This meant that I had my fingers and toes crossed for a good outcome as I read through the many ups and downs they faced. Singer was a great addition to the already fantastic cast, I liked her personality and I loved what she brought to the storyline.
In the middle of all the danger was a moment of peace which indulged my romantic side, I really enjoyed this little break but was excited to get back to the action! Something I had been looking forward to was their return to Faerie, I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen there.
As always the writing style was beautifully descriptive and enabled me to visualise each scene easily and clearly. I particularly enjoyed the detailed battle scenes that played out in my mind like a movie.
A fabulous epilogue ended this series in a satisfying way. It’s always sad to say goodbye to characters who I have taken to my heart but I felt that the author rounded everything up perfectly so I finished with a smile on my face.
This was another imaginative read that captivated me throughout, a wonderful finale!
