Author: Rebecca Ethington
The Time for the final battle has come. Edmund’s armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass. If only Joclyn was able to fight. Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is having trouble trying to ignore. The sight has shown her power, shown her success, but it has also shown her death – The end of her life something she is not quite willing to give up on yet. Even past her death, the sight has shown her love, and that love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund’s death. That love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.

Review: I have to say that I am not a huge fan of YA, so this series totally took me by surprise and swept me away with its creativity. I have yet to read anything like it. The author’s ability to weave such a captivating tale certainly does it credit – and it’s a credit to her skill that had me switching who I had been rooting for in the beginning! I would definitely recommend these books – in fact, when it comes to a series, this one is definitely one of my top ones!
This one had a little bit of a different vibe to it compared to previous ones – we actually get to see quite a few tender moments between Joclyn and Ilyan. We also get to see a few more glimpses of the ‘old’ Ryland – the one we knew and loved from book one. We are also given some hints as to what is really going on with Joclyn’s visions – which has some implications of its own as to who might be involved with the plot against them. All in all, a book that’s not to be missed!…and a series that just keeps getting better and better!
