The story started off slowly. Our characters - Tallis and Tomas - arriving in a new country took a lot of time being described. However - the descriptions were so very detailed and amazing! I was intrigued by the clothes mentioned. Let alone the accessories. The thing I thought of most while reading those was "steampunk!" and I was all for it.

Tomas and Tallis [a half-elf by the way] switch POV's throughout the book. It makes the story very interesting, especially taking into account their person

Finally, book 3!! I was curious how this series was going to continue, and I love the vibe of “Theda”. As the cover suggests, Theda is a region with a clear “steampunk” style. While the addition of technology and mechanical devices is a departure from books 1 and 2, the original feeling of the series is intact—particularly with the fact that something is amiss/wrong, and of course, Tallis needs to get to the root of it all. Elves are still present, and it is cool to see Tallis and Tomas adjust t ...more

Action packed

Action packed with ongoing twists and turns while a race of elves are being subjected to horrendous peril that only Tallis with the assistance Tomas and Roz can overcome.

The 3rd book felt completely different from the first 2 books in the series and (in my opinion) could have been shortened. The second half of the book was really good - suspenseful and fascinating.

Let me identify first, I graciously received a copy of the book from the author. I have read the predecessors to this book, and will be reading its successors! If you haven't read the first two in this series, DO! It's no secret I am in love with C.E. Clayton's writing, and will always be a fan of her ever growing skill as an incredibly talented author <3!

Now, onto the review :).
This book was such a contrast to the first two it took me by surprise! My favorite experience as a reader is in seein
