I really liked Elika she was strong, brave, selfless. Her character was good I was rooting for her to over come her issues and stand up for herself and take control of how she feels and what she wants.

I hadn’t left a review on any of the other books...not because the books and author weren’t for me...I just had to read them all and decided I d do one review on the whole..
I thought that Darc and Zoey was ok just thought Zoey to be a bit daft for a empora to be but continued to read on as I liked the story idea so as The books developed I became hooked and I find all the characters challenging and like the different takes...well worth the wait and read...

Another 5 Star Book

Loved it was happy for both of them, was hoping that Rye would fail for, she was just the one for him, she would give as good as she gets from, strong and sassy. Laughed a lot when they were bossing each other trying to see who would win their way. Hope the next books are as great as this one.

Elika is a witch and was held by a cruel tyrant for twelve years. The Zerconians, with Lucys help, rescued her and other captives. Rye is fighting his obsession with Elika because she is a witch and he was betrayed by a witch.

Not Bad....

Not a bad story. Need to read Zerconian series first if you want to understand who these characters are and find out the backstory.
