She is still learning about her innate powers, and is the captive of the power hungry Magdelana who might kill her if she does not seem to cooperate. Her friend Hazel uses magic to find out where she is and make plans to help her escape.
Flynn senses what a captive baby pterodactyl needs, tells her guard Rowan, but the fact that the two seem to like each other, makes his sister Magdelana angry and she threatens to throw the wildling Ash into the volcano.
I also really like the different characters that were introduced in this book and the different relationships that developed. I think these things will allow the storylines to grow and continue to captivate the reader. I am looking forward to how the series progresses.
While Po was scarcely present in Book 3 he is back in Book 4. And he is still sweet on Flynn’s BFF Hazel. Orturo, Flynn’s trusted falcon, is also back.
Flynn has been taken captive by Magdalana, the Shadow Witch. Magdalana knows Flynn is next in line to be the High Priestess, and knows that Flynn is expected to fulfill the prophecy of the ninth daughter of the ninth daughter reuniting the kingdoms and extinguishing the Shadow Coven. Magdalana would love to draw Flynn to the dark side through the blood they now share.
Flynn is kept in iron bracelets so she can’t use her powers. But unknown to Magdalana and the evil witches who live in fear of her, Flynn can use her powers in spite of the bracelets. However, she knows she must restrain from revealing her magical powers as Magdalana would consider her a threat and kill her immediately. Now all alone, Flynn’s magical strengths are tested as her morale weakens.
Surprisingly, among all her struggles to find an escape, is there a possible romantic attachment for Flynn? And will Hazel be able to find a way to rescue Flynn? Rue, how long are you going to keep us in suspense?
I love this series! I read the first three books and had to start this one right away because book #3, The Shadow Calls, ended in a cliffhanger. Poor Flynn has been taken by the Shadow Witch and things don't look promising for her or her people.
Flynn, the main character, is supposed to become High Priestess after her mother. How can she do that when she's been imprisoned by the Shadow Witch? They've put iron bracelets on her so that she can't use her powers, although eventually they let her remove them for short periods of time because Magdelena, the Shadow Witch, wants to use Flynn and bring her to the dark side.
I've grown to love the characters in the Chronicles of Hawthorn. They're well developed and Rue's writing flows well. I can't wait for the next book! Obviously, I recommend this series. To get the most out of the books, I suggest reading them in order.
