Publisher's Summary

A lady without a purpose

After the death of her soulbonded 20 years ago, Lynia has struggled to find her place. Her son, Lyr, has the estate well in hand, and there are no pressing duties for her to attend. Aside from keeping peace between their many visitors and ignoring her growing attraction to the cranky healer, her days blur into uncomfortable monotony. Not even her work doing research brings much excitement. Then an unexpected prophesy shoves her into sudden action - and the healer’s company - as a plague threatens all she holds dear.

A healer without hope

For nearly five centuries, Lial has treated injured warriors and residents around Braelyn, but not even the small friendships he has formed can fill the increasing loneliness of his life. Worse, he made the mistake of falling in love with Lynia, who still mourns the soulbonded she lost. He buries himself in work to avoid her, but it seems the gods have other plans. According to his seer cousin, a new disease is coming, one capable of killing elves and fae alike. Lial’s only hope? Working with Lynia to find a cure.

An ancient threat

While fighting to ignore their attraction, Lial and Lynia must search for answers. Deep in Moranaia’s history, there are murmurs of such a plague, but finding the details is no easy matter - especially when a mysterious assassin strikes near the heart of Braelyn. As Lyr hunts for the traitor, Lial and Lynia scramble to unlock the mystery of the virus. But the two events may be more related than they realize, and failure can bring only one thing - death.

Must read series!

I’m very happy with this! I absolutely love the series and i love how each book delves deep into each character’s history and back story, while moving the general story of their lives forward. I can’t wait until book 9 — about Kazari comes out!!!

Covid hits the kingdoms

This author seems too invested in current events.its like she wrote most of this using a veiled description of what was going on with the covid story. I was surprised the characters didn't also think of gloves.

Amazing!

I do not know where to start, I absolutely love this book and the entire return of the elves series. Due to declining mental health I have found myself lost in Audible, in particular this series. I feel at home in Morania, and feel like I know the characters well. Brilliant writing. Could (and probably will) re read forever!

Very Enjoyable.

This story is very engaging with the main character being the grumpy doctor. It's the first opportunity to learn more about his life and how it's affected his career and his love of medicine, people and even animals.
Not to mention his ability to deal with an unknown plague.

Repetitive

After all the other books , so much of this addition is just repeating itself. not just information and story from those previous books but constantly repeating information thats just been mentioned in this book.
very tough going
wouldn't recommend, especially as this comes with a price and not just included in the plus catalogue like all the others.

great for fantasy lovers

this was a great listen, I like how older characters are further explored, it's awesome getting to add more to a character you've come to know across 7 other books!

Tying off loose ends

I struggled to finish this book. I’m not sure whether I was over the series or I felt the story was going nowhere.
Linnea worked in the archives to find a cure for the blood disease.
Lyle cured people.
Maddie is working with her magic, with Lyle.
Leona, Fens mother is still alive, but comatose for 500 years - I don’t think so!,,,
I’ve heard it said, “If only I knew then what I know now”…
Linea didn’t hear that one.

Fabulous series

I started with book 8 as an offer for the title appeared in my feed. I was so taken by the storyline and the characters I had to listen to all of the series and will begin again on this book. Solace and awakening are my very favourites but on the whole the fantasy and the many links between worlds and fairy realms is fascinating as well as realistic in terms of relationships .. I would encourage anyone to try if you love fantasy and the fae.
