Some days feel like years, but in Ember Brycin's case just the opposite is true. Em would be 22 now - if she were human. She's not. She is a Dae - part Demon and part Fay - with a little Dark Dweller thrown in to make her more of a freak.
Life has become more complicated for Ember since returning from the Otherworld. Besides being continuously hunted by the Seelie Queen, Ember is at the top of the Unseelie King's list, after breaking her oath with him. No one breaks a vow with the Unseelie King without extreme consequences.
Adding to Ember's problems is a certain Dark Dweller whose mood has become violent and cruel. As much as she'd like to deny it, there is an undeniable connection between them. Eli is sexy, gorgeous, and frustrating as hell. She also knows he is holding something back, something that could change their relationship forever.
But her problems go way past him. As the tension for war mounts between the Seelie and Unseelie (Light and Dark), the tension at the Dark Dweller's compound escalates even more as they prepare to obtain the Sword of Light - the only weapon able to kill the Queen.
But is Ember the answer to the location of the sword? Is she the one to fulfill the prophecy? As usual, nothing is ever what it seems.

I am a fun loving mom that enjoys a great Book!! I'm happy to have Audible with a busy life it makes it so easy to still get lost in a book!
WHEN IS SHE GOING TO STOP MAKING STUPID CHOICES?? THE BACK & FORTH & STUPIDITY IS OK IN THE FIRST BOOK cause we are learning the dynamic of the characters! However AFTER AT LEAST HALF THE SECOND BOOK THEY SHOULD GET SMARTER & STRONGER!!
Ember, you should have killed Josh. I am disappointed no one caught onto him; he was so suspiciously defensive and off kilter about, oh I don't know, everything. If Eli ends up having sex with the queen in the next book, I'm going to literally scream. Writers should want to make their readers feel something, of course, but not an everlasting runaround of telling and not showing. Can I get a detail or two about all of this "tension releasing sex" since it is discussed constantly, blinding and weakening the protagonist to the point of intolerance. Everyone pisses me off in this book except the pixies. I am always going to be rallying for Ember, however, if she does not crush the queen's friggin head soon, I'm going to punch a wall. Why is every book such a cliffhanger? It's like blue balls to the mind. I adore the narrator's voice very much. I hate to say this because I like all the characters and enjoyed the last two books... but I think if I were reading and not listening to this series, I would be really disconcerted and angry after this one. I am hopeful and anxious for some resolve in the next book. PLEASE.
this was the typical middle book for the series to continue. no real excitement but some plots resolved and a good lead in to the next book.
Where is book 4?? I need it now!! Dying...... I need to know what happens. I'm a big team Eli fan and can't wait to listen to book #4.
Where does the heart, soul, loyalties, and duty lay? One resolve turns to another demise. Can't wait for the next book.
I've already spewed my love for this book and it's series in another review but have to add that Michelle Sparks is a brilliant narrator and does justice to this enthralling story. she has great voices for rhe characters, really encaptures emotions and noises, and her cadence is perfect for drawing me fully into the tale. I could listen to her read to me, even just this book on repeat, forever! Highly recommend, even if you're audio-wary like me.
Audio Reviewer under Audio Flow. I enjoy delving into the imagination of writers and hearing it read aloud by seasoned and new audio actors.
What I love about Book 3 of this series is that we finally get some answers. Probably not all of them, but just enough to give us the "Aha" moment. We get some extra special Ember/ Eli time #Chapter5 and it is smoking hot.
Thanks to Michelle Sparks who continues to do a spectacular job bringing my favorite characters to life. She provides such enthusiasm and passion that you can't help but sit and listen in awe.
Now I shall count down until the final book releases. That saddens me, but I can't wait to hear the delivery to the ending of this epic tale!
