Kate Mandu says…
The descriptions were awesome, love the points of view I always read from an animal’s perspective. And Morgan’s mission… the deeper insight into the world of the Council gets better and better. You get the feeling that maybe the Council, with its tough rules that supposedly protect everyone, may be under a bit of stress with the knowledge that Ciaran and the rest of Amyranth are at large.
I still love Killian, despite what some of the characters within the book think about him. I love his rebelliousness and how he’s unlike any of the other characters already introduced. I feel as drawn to his abuse of magick and himself, just like Morgan and it makes you love him more because he’s comfortable doing what he wants. I wanted to reach out and touch the stars just like she had. It was such a gorgeous, seductive scene.
And that magic bouncy ball game thing? I thought that was so cool. I can totally envision a bunch of witches just hanging out, all playing with this spherical energy. One of my favorite scenes besides the shapeshifting. There were a lot of awesome parts to this.
I also enjoyed the continual battle with her feelings for Hunter. I was glad Hunter could see through her lies and was being persistent as he should have been, trying to win her back by snapping her back into shape.
I give it a shiny five because it’s my favorite in the series. It just has a lot of good action and drama for me.
