Publisher's Summary

He's the Black Mage and she's the traitor to the Crown.

Ryiah's world was shattered the night she discovered King Blayne's nefarious plans. Now, she has to betray the one she loves most in order to save the realm from war. Torn between love and duty, Ry finds herself on a perilous mission to help the rebels and convince the kingdom of Pythus not to honor its pact with the corrupt king of Jerar - all the while deceiving the most powerful mage in the realm, the very man sworn to protect the Crown and hunt the rebels at all costs: her husband.

She's one step ahead, but sooner or later the curtain will fall.

Sooner or later, she'll have to fight.

Witness the epic conclusion of The Black Mage series, and see just how far one girl will go to save her kingdom and the boy she loves - even when that boy has become the enemy.

Roller coaster of emotion.

At some point in this book, I had to stop listening. It was really painful to hear Riyah inner pain and trouble. She was really believable as a character and while I keep hoping and hoping for a happy end I was so afraid it would not come. I am glad this book is over and my heart can rest. I went through the 4 book in a week. Going through the first 2 you wouldn't see this book coming at all. If i was honest, I would have preferred to stop at book 2. I am glad I could see Riyah grow as a character in book 3 and 4. But the fairy tale lover in me find this story too painful. Not something you see in young adult book often.

Best of the series!

Great story overall. Fantastic narrator!

The narrator is superb! Easy to listen to and follow along!

So I really enjoyed this book for the most part but I just had such a hard time getting through it unlike the other ones in the series which I couldn’t put down. Plus some spousal abuse that was just brushed aside like it was nothing personally just made me feel uncomfortable. I know what the situation was but it just made me feel icky and left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I almost stopped reading but decided to go ahead and push through. Well the abuse was pretty much just looked over and easily forgiven because the situation was understood as to why it occurred. Once again, it just left me feeling icky because of justifying it. I really didn’t even want a happily ever after in this book because of it. I really hate going on about it because the overall story, series, and conclusion is really good but it is the reason for four stars instead of five. I hate being “that person” but I just couldn’t shake that off unfortunately and it just out a dark shadow on over all the good parts on it for me.

1% book plot flow

most books about 99% of them are predictive in what will happen next. this is one book in a small list I have read or listened to that surprised me. this book did it not just once but several times.

the ending was no surprise though. I enjoyed the entire series.

Struggled to finish

I was really disappointed with the narrator's monotonous way of delivering the story. I had loved the first book and liked the second and third, but the storyline of this fourth book was unrealistic in my view and at several points felt drawn out.

Totally gripping finale

Aside from a little overkill on the female angst, a compelling and well crafted read
