Six hundred years ago, the Muir Court was wiped from existence, destroyed by an elite group known as the Black Rose Guard. Their Captain, Mara, has a reputation of being a harsh woman who leads the guard with a fierce formality. During her long years, she has known pain, loss, heartache...and one great love. Edward was the Captain of the Royal Guard. He loved her once. However, it was a love that faded the day he met young Liza, the Princess who stole the heart he had once sworn belonged to Mara alone.

In this sequel to Black Rose, reunite with the captains of the Immortal Guard and witness Mara and Edward at the beginning of their epic love story, which spans more than a millennium of heartache, pain, and undying devotion. When Edward is sent on a mysterious quest by the ruthless queen, 19-year-old Mara - the youngest sub-captain to ever serve the Royal Guard - vowed to await his return, never anticipating decades would pass without word of his fate.

I always hesitated when I would ever be asked if I like audio books. I had downloaded 2 years ago but never really listened to them. My hesitation is now over. Admittedly I only purchase audio books for books I have already read. I find doing chores worth wile when I have an audio book playing. It makes it easy!!

This audio book was done superbly. I applaud the actress and Sarah J Maas for a job well done. This book is one I hold very dear to my heart. I enjoyed it!

Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court - but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people. Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms - and she might be key to stopping it.

I loved it. I am a huge Sarah J. Maas fan and purchased this right away. When I was listening to it , I was laying in bed imaging each scene unfold in my mind. Her descriptions were on point and I found myself crying like a baby. I cannot wait for the next installment. Fantastic!!
