This series was brilliantly written. The Fantasy, the romance, the paranormal, it has it all and it is astounding. Another fast turning page read that you can’t put down.

In the first book The Battle Sylph, Leon and his battle sylph Ril were a major part of the story. We know that both are great warriors and assets to the queen and are very loyal.

In this story, six years later after the Sylph Valley is created, Leons daughter "Lizzy" who is now 18 and is dying to get out of the whelms of her parents rule and find her true love. Lizzy has one boy "Justin" who has an interest in her, a boy whom she once pecked kissed when she was 16 and of course a man she was interested in "Ril" who majorly kissed her that same night when she was 16. Lizzy just wanted to get away and figure things out and decide what she wanted in life.

Little did Lizzy know how her life would change? Lizzy and two other female friends take off to a city beyond the mountains to explore unguided that is until Justin shows up. Her friend Loren (tramp in heat) started flirting with some pirates on a doc and next thing they know all chaos breaks out and they end up kidnapping Lizzy. Justin doesn't even try to save her, he runs off instead like a cowed down dog with his tail tucked between his legs.

Mean while, Leon and Ril are on their own mission in another city stopping them from bringing other sylphs over or interfering before the intended master tries to kill the female sacrifice. Of course as it goes, Leon and Ril end up killing the entire priest and rescuing the girl and the new sylph. Little did they know they were heading into another adventure to rescue Lizzy when they got home?

Leon, Ril, and Justin end up on a journey of a life time to rescue Lizzy, the story is amazing. All the characters are amazing but my favorite is Leon. He is such a hero and an honorable man that keeps his promises. It is going to be interesting to see where the 3rd book takes off.
