I always get nervous after reading a Bloods and Shadows book, knowing that I have to string together words in a coherent fashion to describe how truly epic they are.

These characters and their story have haunted me since 2008. Even now, I can listen to certain songs and be reminded of them, can envision whole scenes in my head. "Love: The greatest gift of all and the greatest sacrifice," will be forever etched into my subconscious. These books have challenged me on almost every level. They've drastically altered my view on love and life in general. They've shaped me in a way that I don't think any other book has.

These were the books that made me start to take my own writing seriously.

Reader be-very-ware. These books are not for the faint of heart. And they are not Romances. Characters you love dearly will die, but they are never truly gone. And when they don't die, they suffer horribly. But you'll want to remember that phrase I keep quoting.

"Love is the greatest gift of all and the greatest sacrifice."

I personally would rather a book rip my still beating heart right out of my chest rather than leave me apathetically numb. But that's just me.

Shannari has come along way since Rhaekhar, Khul of the Nine Camps of the Sha'Kae al'Dan, decimated her army and won her heart. She's become such an iconic heroine for me. I have watched her love, hate, fight, win ....and lose. I have watched her suffer, truly suffer some horrific events and come out all the stronger for it. Because Shannari dal'Dainnari never ran from anything. Not for long. Her truly epic capacity for love puts all other heroines to shame. None of them can hold a candle to her passion.

I am a fan of this author, and have read all of this series. I liked them all, and although I liked this book, it would be my least favorite. Seeing the characters die is never easy, even when they are riding off into the sunset in a mystery ship in the sky, taking them to their loved ones. Although I felt sorry for the young 'bloods' who were her bodyguards, in that they were not allowed to have a wife, children, basically no life of their own, I still found it a little too much when the heroin, not only takes the re-incarnation of one of her most evil enemies to her bed, but also all nine of her bodyguards. Then when she dies, they all go along with her to meet her previous two loves. She was said to have been blessed by the goddess with an enormous ability to love, and I found myself thinking, "I should say so"! Nevertheless, it is the conclusion to the entire series, and therefore, a necessary read if you've invested in reading the other books.

This book is the darkest of the three books in the trilogy (and I'm assuming that you've read the first two) but it is most definitely a love story. Perhaps it is more accurate to say that Return to Shanhasson is a loves story because the central theme is how Shannari's love for her Bloods and especially her love for the complex character, Mykal, saves them and herself. The fine writing, captivating characters, and splendid imagery found in the first two books continues in this one. My only criticism is the author's use of foreign words without giving their meanings either in the text or in a glossary. I find it very annoying to try and figure out what something means when I'm reading and it often interrupts the flow of the story. Even with that failing, I very much enjoyed reading this book and I can't wait to read the next book, Survive My Fire. I recommend that you get this book so you can start enjoying it ASAP.
