Malachi is one of the Irin, a race of mostly males that have inscribed magical symbols/spells into their skin to allow them to fight off attacks to humanity by the Grigori a race of mixed blood of The Fallen.
Ava is a young woman, professional photographer that has been hearing "voices" all her life and has managed through mainly strength of will to remain sane.
Through her meeting and developing relationship with Malachi she has found out some of the answers to her "voices" but not all. This quest for knowledge and a romance that crosses all barriers will be the crux of this series.
This seems to be a romance at the heart of the story since that is what drives much of the action and to paraphrase another reviewer, this is indeed the best mix of romance and action I have read in years, the mix of good, evil, and powerful beings with motives that are completely unknown are all thrown together in a mix of fantasy, romance and action that is addicting to the reader and by the end of the book you will be desperate for the next release.
The ending while stirring elements of tragedy, hope and frustration is not a cliffhanger but does indeed hook you into the next book shamelessly which is what a good author is supposed to do but it does make us mere mortals wish for time to pass quickly so we can see what happens next.
This has all the feel of an epic story as was her earlier Elemental Mysteries series of 4 books but this story seems to be taking it to a much higher level and now I anxiously await the next installment.
5 Stars and I can only hope the other books in this series will be as exceptional.
There are so many things that I loved about the story which follows travel photographer Ava - who has feared for her sanity due to the 'voices' she's always heard - as she discovers the existence of the Irin and the reason for her brand of 'insanity'. The mythos surrounding the Irin is as rich as the setting and the reveal of their history has a real emotional impact, but what really makes this story live are the people who inhabit the world of the Scribe.
I really liked both Ava, who was strong and intelligent in spite of her affliction, and her 'bodyguard' Malachi, who was the perfect combination of powerful and vulnerable and controlled and passionate. The romance between Ava and Malachi was wonderful, it unfolded slowly allowing me to fall in love along with Ava and Malachi as they fell in love with each other. When the pair finally came together physically it was all about the passion and emotions of their connection, making those love scenes explosive without using a ton of explicit language.
The Scribe gets a full five stars me because I had a hard time leaving the world and the characters behind - even several days later I was still rereading some the scenes surrounding the more powerful emotional moments of the story. Now I am anxiously awaiting, The Singer, the next book of the trilogy since the ending to the Scribe left me with lots of questions unanswered. I can't wait to see where Ava goes from here and I am crossing my fingers that we will start getting some of the answers to the mysteries surrounding her.
