Once in Eryri, Rhys tries to keep their heartswearing a secret because council members would revolt. He needs them on his side. When a spy sets Kai up, she is outed to everybody.
It is evident that Rhys and Kai have feelings for each other but are afraid to voice them. Kai is still keeping Rhys out of her head because she is afraid. She has seen the power of being heartsworn observing Julie and Ashem. She longs for what they have. What she has yet to accept is that she can have the same level of respect and intimacy if she just allows herself to open up to Rhys. At times I wanted to just smack her and say wake up sister! But the slow build is what the author was after and once Kai allows Rhys in, it was spectacular! The love they shared was beautiful and Kai has shown Rhys she is a formidable partner! I feel she has really grown up and come into her own in this book. I was not a Kai fan, but after this book, I am endeared to her. She's finally realized everything is not about her!
As in Soul of Smoke(book one), there is a lot going on! Not hard to keep track of, just a lot happening all the way around. Rhys and Kai are trying so hard to spend some quality time together. Its extremely tough since Rhys is King and must be involved with the goings on. Things are not good on Eryri, and made worse once learning that the King is heartsworn to a human! The spy is still among them and causing problems. Cadoc is trying hard to break his curse to kill the King so he may return home. Owain is busy trying to find allies and new ways to take down Rhys so he can be King and annihilate the humans. The huge question mark is Mair. She is quietly pulling all the strings. What is she planning? What does she want?
This book was just awesome! It builds and builds until we are at the top and I literally was holding my breath at times! Yes it is that good! Caitlyn McFarland has created an intricate story that takes you on one heck of a ride! Yes it does leave us with a cliff but I expected it and didn't throw my kindle! If you love paranormal fantasy stories, you must start this trilogy. The third book, Truth of Embers, is due out in a couple of months and it will no doubt be a doozy! So far the series has been phenomenal and one I highly recommend! I am very glad I invested the time to read it!
5 stars/3 flames
This book was provided to me by The Jeep Diva for the express purpose of an honest review. The opinions and rating in this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated.
First, let me just say that I just this minute finished this book. My heart rate is probably triple time right now. My emotions are swirling and I’m a mess. Yes, Ms. McFarland, you did this to me. And I love it!
The book starts out about six weeks after the previous one left off. Kai is at home in Colorado with Juli and Juli’s heartsworn, Ashem. It has been miserable for both Kai and Rhys to be apart but at the same time, Kai needs this time, both to let her family know she is ok and also, to get herself together. But when Rhys gets information that Kai is in danger, he knows it is time to bring her home, to his home in Eryri.
Once there, he tries to keep their heartswearing a secret. It would pit many of the council against him if they knew he was heartsworn to a human. But things work against him and before he can present Kai in his own way, she is found out.
For the first part of this book, Kai is keeping her mental walls up and won’t let Rhys in. Both of them are keeping their feelings to themselves. There were times I wanted to give them both a good smack and then make them kiss and make up. It was so obvious they cared deeply for each other. But now, after the fact, I see that perhaps this slow pace they took in opening up to each other was a good thing. Because when the walls did come down, it was awesome. And the love they shared, I believe, was stronger than ever.
Apart from the attempts Rhys and Kai are making to spend time together, Rhys is a King. And things are not going well in Eryri. Now so many dragons are against him since he is heartsworn to a human. They have a spy in their midst and he can’t figure out who it is. Then we have Owain who wants to kill Rhys and rule himself. But, if he rules, humans will die. We have poor Cadoc that is trying everything to find a way to break the curse that forces him to want to murder his own King Rhys. And we have Mair who is pulling the puppet strings on everyone and orchestrating her own resolution.
As in the first book, Caitlyn McFarland builds and builds until the epic finale that will have you gasping for breath. I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest. And yes, there is a cliff hanger. But thankfully, we won’t have but about two months for the finale of this trilogy to come out, Truth of Embers. So if you haven’t started already, now is your chance to start at the beginning and read book one, Soul of Smoke, then this one, to get all ready for the final book. I, for one, can’t wait.
“I love you forever, Fire of my soul, flame of my heart.”
