Within the walls of her palace, Princess Katya’s best friend lies at her feet, close to death. Her pyradisté is overwhelmed by some mysterious power, and her former lady-in-waiting has stabbed her in the back. Wounded and nearly alone, Katya must find a way to sabotage the magic of her Fiendish uncle Roland, or those who fight for the capitol will be overwhelmed by hypnotized guards and Fiend-filled corpses.
Starbride’s pain is nearly overwhelming. The agony inside her only lessens when she satisfies a strange new desire to hurt those around her. She may hold the key to banishing Fiendish power from Farraday, but only by using it herself. Together, Katya and Starbride must make a final desperate push to take back the kingdom, but even if they survive, can the strength of their love keep them from madness? After all, fighting evil with evil has its consequences.
Probably I am a bit biased because I have loved this series right from the start and this final chapter was everything I was hoping for. Everything was well balanced…the romance, the action, the struggles, the suspense, and the alternate point of view stay strong till it’s very end and make not only this book but all the series a “must read” ones to any Fantasy aficionado. As a reader and a fan I could not be more happy to see this amazing journey come to a so well written and engaging end. Kudos.
Even as the final book in a series I've never read, this book captivated me. The writing is magnetic, powerful. The characters are vibrant, vivid, and varied. The romance takes a backseat to the fantasy, and oh what fantasy it is. This book could stand alongside the finest in mainstream fantasy and hold its own. I would love to step into the magical world Barbara Ann Wright created and meet these heroines for myself.
