When last we saw the Nightkeepers, Myrienne was close to death, Red Boar (the scuzz) was back and Rabbit was missing. And there were just a few short months left before the world as we know it was scheduled to end.
Rabbit, talk about a screwup.. But then he has always been a favorite, even during his worst mistakes because we know, no matter how bad, his heart is in the right place. And all he really wants is to be accepted, loved, wanted. The problem is these same needs and desires have gotten our gorgeous mishap in way over his head and everyone it seems now wants him dead or at least contained. Captured by one of the big evils he has spent the past few months being tortured.. and yet he survived, escaped and is now out for some serious revenge and equally serious redemption.
When Rabbit offered up his magic in order to bring the first father back, it skipped into Myrienne. Finally her dreams have come true and she has magic of her own. Only problem is she was half dead and while recovering has had to deal with the newly recalled Red Boar.. what a freaking jerk. Myrienne, no longer trusts what Rabbit is and she is determined to keep him at a distance. Only trouble with that is, since she holds his magic and is the only way he can release his, they must work together.
Red Boar is the single most horrid "good guy" I have ever encountered. There is just NOTHING redeemable about this jerk. Even upon his return, knowing the importance of Rabbit, knowing that the need is strong, Red Boar insists on treating him like pond scum. And Rabbit, amazingly enough learns how to work with this without malice or resentment. Shows what a class act our Rabbit has become.
Anna, finally has a sweet story of her own. A lifetime of refusing her gifts have left her without her powers and alone. But in the midst of it all there comes a Doctor, committed to helping others and Anna tumbles into a sweet story of her own.
The team is forced to face the worst battle a man can face, that of faith. The leap of faith that they must take has to be one of the hardest things anyone could ever be asked to do. Can they read the signs properly? Can they find the truth between the lies? Will they succeed? Will they fail? If they do succeed do they survive? This book keeps the story running fast and furious.. slowly unwrapping each new problem with a wicked glee that Doc Jess seems to have mastered. This story is edge of your seat, what will happen next..
It shows a flawed hero and a heroine who has finally found a place, only to wonder if it's the right place. It teaches of true love and sacrifice. Of people willing to die for a cause, for love, for friendship and for faith. What an amazing story Doc Jess has left us with.
The way the strings were all tied, the story raveled back together and each member of the team complete.. yeah.. great book.. great series.. I really don't want to say goodbye.
When we last left off with our Nightkeepers, Rabbit was tricked & then taken prisoner by the demons, leaving Myrinne just about at death's door. Rabbit has always been a wild card, not totally in control. Myrinne was the one who changed his life for the better, and as time passes, Rabbit begins to mature and take on his role with the Nightkeepers.
As we begin Spellfire, Rabbit is being tortured by the demons. He no longer has his powers, as the demons try to take that from him. The only thing that keeps him alive, is his thoughts of Myrinne. He manages to make a last desperate attempt to escape, and just when he is ready to give up, the Nightkeepers come to his rescue. But the biggest shock is when he sees his worst nightmare, his dead father, Red Boar alive. Back at the compound, Rabbit knows he has lost all his credibility with his friends, and as he looks for Myrinne, he sees her distant cold behavior.
Myrinne is not the same person Rabbit knew when he almost killed her. She was hurt badly by his believing the demon trickery, and thinking the worst of her. The emotional memory of that time has frozen her heart. Now that all of Rabbit magic belongs to Myrinne, she is also reluctant to give it back.
Rabbit must earn back the respect and prove to the Nightkeepers and Myrinne, he is no danger to them, and he will be able to handle whatever is needed of him to help win the final battle. We learn early on that Rabbit is the crossover, which no one really understands what that means. As they have to work together, Rabbit and Myrinne slowly begin to resume their relationship, though Myrinne fights off her mistrust.
One of the best parts of the story was Anna. I have always loved Anna, and was worried that Andersen would put her at the end with the awful detestable Red Boar. I had felt this way, as there was no one else that was available for Anna. But Andersen does right by Anna, and I loved how things turn out for her. Seeing all the other Nightkeepers/Mates was awesome too.
The final half of the book was very exciting, with a lot of action and twists along the way. Will Rabbit be able to control his magic, including his dark magic? Will Rabbit finally find out about his family? Will Myrinne forgive him to allow herself to fully love him again? What will happen to Red Boar? Will the Nightkeepers be able to solve the mystery of what needs to be done to win the War? Will they win the war and stop Doomsday?
So many questions, and Andersen answers them all. My favorite part of the final book was Anna. My least favorite was unfortunately Rabbit and Myrinne. I did like them, but something seemed to be missing. Perhaps it was that their pairing paled in comparison to the other couples in the Nightkeepers series, who were totally awesome, and this one was a bit of a let down. I really enjoyed how at the end, we get to see what happens to each of the Nightkeepers, that we have come to know and love. Spellfire was a wonderful end to a fantastic series, and as I have said before, Jess Andersen is a wonderful writer. If you have not read this series, you are missing a fabulous ride.
Rabbit is the ultimate underdog, a major screw-up and someone most everyone can relate to. He wants to be accepted, to help and to be loved. In this final installation we get to see him achieve those dreams, but not without some serious work and overcoming a giant obstacle, like his jerk of a father.
Myrinne was never my favorite, but that could be because I questioned her interior goals. SPELLFIRE finally gave me the chance to get a good, long look at where she came from and how she came to be the person she is. My heat really went out to these two in this story. How could it not when they've both struggled their whole lives to find their "home".
I love the twists and turns this story took, keeping me on my toes and not letting me guess what was going to come next. The action was great, but still left room for the love story to grow, giving us that HEA. Jessica Andersen did an excellent job of wrapping up this complex and intriguing series. While I hate to see it end, she left me very satisfied! I can't wait to read her new book, set in a completely different setting and genre (SUMMER AT MUSTANG RIDGE under the name of Jesse Hayworth). This is one author who I'll read anything she writes!!!
