This is my favorite book of this series to date!

Ril is a battle sylph that grew up around his masters family and loved his daughters, especially Lizzie. When Lizzie is kidnapped Ril, her father and Justin, the kid who thinks he loves her, take off on a search to find her.

This story is heart wrenching in so many ways. Not only the kidnapping of the beloved Lizzie but the place and conditions that she is taken to. Sold into slavery, left to fend for herself in a harem and scared witless.

The dynamic between Ril and Leon was also fascinating. Here are these two who have spent years upon years together as Master and Servant. The hate Ril feels for Leon and the love Leon feels for Ril is so powerful. It really overshadows any romance that was in this book. For me, this relationship was the one to watch.

The best part of the book for me was how pulled into that world I was. The writing really made the world, scenery, characters stand out and come to life.
