Jayla Storm, the righteous ruler and successor of the original sixteen, is kept in an abandoned tower under the claim the land is being protected from her, since she attracts the bloodthirsty beasts - ravagers. Imani, the current ruler, rules with fear and cruelty, imposing immortal winter on the once colorful land. When Jayla is freed from her jail and kidnapped by small group of rebels, she learns once again about her true identity and heads on a quest to save the sector and its inhabitants from the death threat.
I simply love this series. The story went incredibly fast and I realized it was over only when I turned the page, eager for more, and found out I am reading epilogue. It was action- and emotion-packed, with many twists, suspense, drama and heartbreaking romance.
The main characters in this book were exquisite. Jayla with her issues, living in a bubble of lies, losing her innocence once again when she must face her past decisions and their consequences, becoming stronger and more determined with each lie uncovered. Kip, living with his curse and the threat of shortening time, who must persuade Jayla that she could believe him and rely on him, fighting his own ghosts. Even Imani, who is the embodiment of the evil, with her cold heart and limitless cruelty. I couldn't believe there are any innovative ways of torture, but if there were any, she would have invented them, being a perfect villain.
All the characters are believable, realistic and easy to identify with. Their motives are clear and understandable, although many times hidden from the beginning and only becoming clear over time.
A true reading experience!
Next, too often Jayla was rude and judgemental in how she treated Kip after she was whole again. She certainly didn't behave as if he were a real partner, since she kept running off to deal with things alone and had no problem trying to deceive him in the process. The sex scenes kept describing their bodies coming together and their souls blending, but I didn't see that in Jayla's behavior at all. She acted as though her decision was the only one that really mattered, and her power the only effective weapon.
Their relationship needed more substance, which could have been provided by giving us more flashbacks to Kip and Jayla's earlier relationship so we'd know who they were to each other before Imani got control of Jayla. Instead there were explicit sex scenes that felt more like a substitute for relationship, rather than being examples of who they were to one another.
This disconnect in Jayla's character was the authors' faults. They tried to make Jayla seem better than Imani by throwing in a couple of scenes where Jayla asked other people's advice, but then undercut it entirely by making Jayla keep sneaking off by herself to confront the bad guys without even telling anyone else what she was doing, much less listening to their objections or suggestions.
MINOR SPOILER On the downside : it was oddly perfunctory at the end. The big fight scene didn't really make much sense. Jayla spent most of the fight losing badly, but suddenly she turned it around and it wasn't clear how she did it. Then, too, after the battle several people who seemed dead were suddenly alive and in one case, Larry and Collins didn't explain how that was possible either. All in a the ending seemed rushed.
