Cécile and Tristan have accomplished the impossible, but their greatest challenge remains: defeating the evil they have unleashed upon the world.
As they scramble for a way to protect the people of the Isle and liberate the trolls from their tyrant king, Cécile and Tristan must battle those who’d see them dead. To win, they will risk everything. And everyone.
But it might not be enough. Both Cécile and Tristan have debts, and they will be forced to pay them at a cost far greater than they had ever imagined.
Review:The third book in this fantastic trilogy maintains the excitement and suspense that I've loved about this series since the beginning. The cliffhanger in the second book was pretty dramatic, so finally getting a resolution and finding out more about the trolls and magic in this world was so satisfying. I found this an intense read, but perfectly balanced in it's drama and the resolution for the characters.
The romance was always a major draw for me in this series, and Cecile and Tristan are so close and so perfect for each other, that I was wondering where their relationship could develop from there, but the author manages to take it to the next level, and develop them even further. It was interesting, especially to see a different side to Tristan - one in which he is not so caught up in Cecile, and had to be a bit darker, with more of an edge. And I love that the resolution of their story had some unexpected moments that made me feel so many emotions for the both of them.
With the war finally being played out in the story, there are some major consequences that made this book very emotional in so many ways, however. There were times when I felt things were resolved a little too easily, but that was a minor thing for me, because the ending had a major obstacle that did not resolve the way I expected at all, and added a lot more gravitas to the story, and justified that there were serious consequences to the actions of some of the characters.
It was a completely fitting and engrossing end to a wonderful series. Anyone who hasn't had a chance to start the trilogy, should pick it up as soon as they can - it's a fantastic binge read!
