Bloated on chaos, the Morrigan leaves the Scottish Highlands to gather power. A trip through Hell yields quite the assortment of allies tagging along behind her. Fell creatures straight out of myth and nightmare that haven't darkened Earth's boundaries for centuries heed her call.
Heartily sick of the Morrigan's maneuvering, the dragons are close to shutting their world off from everywhere, Earth included. If they do that, every single dragon shifter bond will end up broken. Horrified, Lachlan and Britta launch a desperate campaign to hang onto their dragons.
Magic may bite back, but if the dragons take their magic ball and go home, Earth will fade, along with all other worlds. That suits the Morrigan fine. War and anarchy are her favorite companions, and she collects misery like children gather beloved toys.
Arianrhod's fellow Celts found out about her fall from grace and her half-Druid son, Jonathan. With nothing further to hide, she goes back in time hunting Angus, Jonathan's father. Forty years apart was a steep price to pay. The world needs Angus' magic. And Jonathan needs all the help he can get. Late to accept the power thrumming through him, he holds a key role in keeping the world from spinning off its axis. Reluctant at first, Jonathan finally gets it.
Anything less and everyone he loves will pay an unthinkable price.
Great ending to the series! Lots of action & suspense. Loved that all characters were in this book. Only sad to say goodbye to them. Love listening to Miller read the series!
This story makes you realize, that we are all reliant on each other. No species, irrelevant of their power, can isolate themselves, because as one "world" decline, so do those that have had themselves dependant on that world, also loose out.
Magical beings, Dragons, humans and Immortals, all are intertwined.. One dies off, so do the others.
Yes, interesting story, but also thought provoking stuff.
The actual story, finally spins to a close when the Crow is finally captured. interesting operation that was. Yes, an interesting and at times, dramatic tale.
I so enjoyed this series and Book 4 really was the icing on the cake. You must listen to books 1-3 to really get the most out of this book. All of the characters from the previous books reunite to divert certain disaster caused by the Morrigan. The narration in this book is first class. If you love stories about dragons, witches, gods, and magic... go find book 1 and start listening... you will be glad you did.
