“Repeats familiar tropes from the previous installments, i.e., a hunky highlander suffering under some sort of curse and a virgin heroine who just happens to be his one true love. Nevertheless, the basic premise is quite entertaining as long as you don't take it too seriously, and the references to the Unseelie Hallows and hints at events to come in the Fever series are enjoyable.
Cian is an enigmatic amalgamation of opposites. On the one hand, he is primitive and barbaric with no compunction against using Voice to compel others to his bidding or even to force Jessi into having sex with him (although he probably wouldn't have done so). On the other hand, he has an ingrained sense of honor and is willing to die to atone for his past crimes and rid the world of a dangerous threat.
Jessi is feisty and adorable. She takes the revelations concerning the existence of magic, druids and the fae in stride, approaching the issues with a logical mind and reasoning it all out in her head. She is also more than capable of holding her own against the domineering Cian, and their banter and chemistry are a highlight of the story.
The return of Drustan & Gwen, and Daegus & Chloe is an added bonus and the lead into the Fever series is seamless and smooth. All in all, a solid conclusion to a delightful series. ”
