Publisher's Summary

Who is Catalia Fisa? With the help of pivotal figures from her past, Cat begins to understand the root of her exceptional magic, her fated union with Griffin Sinta, and Griffin's role in shaping her destiny. Only Cat holds the key to unlocking her own power, and that means finally accepting herself, her past, and her future in order to protect her loved ones, confront her murderous mother, and take a final, terrifying step - reuniting all three realms and taking her place as the Queen of Thalyria. What doesn't kill her will only make her stronger...we hope.

Such a good story

I know that my reviews on the first two parts of this trilogy say exactly this - but Sorry! I have to say it: The story is brilliant, the narrator is superb, I love the characters but I REALLY hate the detailed descriptions of love making. I recommended this book to my daughter but had to get back to her with a warning about the unnecessarily graphic detail!

A massive let down.

The Only Good Thing I really have to say this isn't the narrator did a fantastic job of a terrible story. It was such a big let down. the climax was disappointing and emotionally unfulfilling with a 180 so quick I nearly got whiplash.

Kat's constant navel-gazing made for a slow moving plot. The whole Tartrus saga could have been over with in 500 words.

Griffin (who annoyed me in the first book bit at least had character) is reduced to a mere prop for Kat.

The constant love scenes made me wonder if I had stumbled onto soft core literotica and if I heard the word "little bean" in reference to baby one more time my eyes would have rolled so hard they would have fallen out of my head.

Each of the female characters pretty much had the perfect male specimen to fancy. All unrealistically perfect. It became predictable and annoying.

Kay's constant backing and forthing over her abilities became very tiresome. What happened to the confidant woman from the first book? And the interventions of the Gods just felt like continued Deus Ex Machina for a weak plot.

The series started off very promisongly (Despite the uncomfortable relationship with Kat and Griffin aka kidnapping). I enjoyed the evil mother and the Battle Royale childhood of Kat and the nod to the Greek gods and the reclamation of a birth right. But that whole fascinating story was sidelined for a sappy love story with little substance other than them both repeating how much they truly cared for each other over and over with far too much sex that doesn't move the story forward. Let's not forget while they are promising the world to each other it started with Griffin forcibly taking Kat against her will, restaining her, depriving her freedoms.

Far too little attention was paid to more interesting chatacters or more interesting characteristics. And I only finished this book because I started the first one and I am a completionist.

A good read

Ive read all 3 books and in fairness I have enjoyed them. Still too much sex (as previously commented upon) and sometimes the arrival of a god just seems to be the mechanism for getting the heroine out of a tricky situation.
Still not sure who the target audience is. If it were not for the very (VERY) graphic sex scenes I would be tempted to believe it is a young teen book. That said - I am no teen but enjoyed the story anyway.

Way to much whinging

I enjoyed the first two books. This book should only of been half the length. It feels like the author ran out of ideas so just padded out the word count with internal angst rubbish that had already been resolved in the previous book and turned the heroine into a pathetic damsel in distress. I had to skip forward several chapters at a time to get through all the cringe worthy parts just to get the general gist and find out the end result of the first two books that I enjoyed. Very disappointing.

Strong story line but lacking a punch

I read all three of these books and the writing is alright. the character development relies on you being 17 and desperate for a love life. The adventures and risky situations feel without risk. Not once was I actually concerned that things would go wrong. In each pivotal scene you are steaming at the writer, not the character, to make a better decision, or to focus on the actual threat.

it was fun, but not riveting. The excitement of the sex scenes quickly faded.

Wish I could give 5 stars for performance!

Lucy Scott really brought the characters to life, and managed to inject so much humour into this recording. My one criticism- I did find it difficult at times to distinguish between the narrative and actual speech when it came to the MC.
The story was mostly captivating- I found some parts dragged a bit. Some repetitive conflicts slowed the story unnecessarily.

not a bad ending

i enjoyed this trilogy...mainly...there was the occasional hiccup with the narrator confusing her voices and far too many sex scenes and Kat constantly self doubting but overall enjoyable and easy to listen to
