The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't. As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

I loved the story, the adventure, the cliff hanger!!! However, I’m so sad so much sex was included, it just wasn’t needed. Now I have a series that I’ve loved but won’t recommend because it went from PG13 to rated R. I’m sad because this story is epic but sadly at an end for me😒 sooo frustrating!

Nevada Baylor can't decide which is more frustrating - harnessing her truthseeker abilities or dealing with Connor "Mad" Rogan and their evolving relationship. Yes, the billionaire Prime is helping her navigate the complex magical world in which she's become a crucial player - and sometimes a pawn - but she also has to deal with his ex-fiancée, whose husband has disappeared and whose damsel-in-distress act is wearing very, very thin.

I love this author duo. They write captivating stories with characters you wish you knew in person. However the addition of a more erotic tint bothers me. I personally don't enjoy that in a book and it keeps me from recommendations which is sad because the stories are stellar! So if they could keep the intimacy to more of a PG-13 that would make it perfect. The adult content is unnecessary, in fact I skipped those sections and still enjoyed the story immensely. Just my opinion and personal preference, other reviewers like the extra steam, I do not.

Though she looks like a typical California surfer girl, Beka Yancy is in fact a powerful yet inexperienced witch who's struggling with her duties as a Baba Yaga. Luckily she has her faithful dragon-turned-dog for moral support when she discovers that a mysterious toxin is driving the Selkie and Mer from their homes deep in the trenches of Monterey Bay.

I loved the beginning and Bekka's strength but her ignorance and nativity with the villains got old really fast. Overall good but I had to push through a bit because heroine was as annoying a lot of the time.
