Betrayal has taken Taylor far beyond my reach.

I can feel the bond stretched and twisted until it’s on the verge of snapping. But I will find her. She is mine as I am hers, and nothing will stop me from recovering my queen. I will always come for her. If she is hurt, I will heal her. If she is scared, I will wrap my arms around her, my embrace her safe harbor.

Finally, we find out the truth of where Taylor comes from. It's dark and powerful but will her bond with Leander save her from the darkness?

DNF At Page 256 out of 916 on Chapter 7.

I can't take this series anymore and that's saying a lot considering this is a series of novella sized books. I'm tired of having to keep track of so many characters that were presented all together with barely any distinct characteristics. They're blurring together and I just don't care enough, at this point, to remedy that.

The story is moving at a glacial pace. I thought I wanted to see how Taylor and Leander's story end, but I don't care enough about th

Oh god. That took a turn for the fucking cartooney and groan-inducing.

Within pages, I had to start skimming because the author went full on with shit she probably thought was dramatic but reads like the shit 12 year olds find edgy.

Plus that fucking reoccurring witch's pea/witch's pee joke was weak and awful and I hate that I had to read it like 4 times with my own two good eyes.

"You spit out my pea!"
*Everyone hears "pee"*
Taylor hastily corrects by spelling "Not P-E-E, P-E-A!"
*everyone who heard*

This didn’t do it for me I’m afraid there just isn’t enough individualisation amongst the characters involved to set them apart and they all started to blur into one the story itself is imaginative but everything else could do with some major fleshing out I’m slightly disappointed because the first book did capture my attention.

Taylor is either super naive or in this case super evil the two extremes for me didn’t gel well. I’ve definitely hit the end of the road and unfortunately won’t be carry

In this 4th installment Leander and Taylor's story culminates with their ceremony and been king and queen of winter realm. There were pleasant surprises and others not so much. The turn in Selene's good attitude was magnificent. The touch of humor in the character was pleasant. But Beth is still my favorite. Leander and Taylor were much more explosive and hot together in this part. Like all previous books. We finished with a suspense note. I emphasize that if the author had built or developed a ...more

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Beyond the Mountain by Lily Archer is book 4 in the Fae's Captive Series. This continues the story of Taylor and Leander, so you should read the previous books 'Fae's Captive', 'Road To Winter' and 'Bite Of Winter' to fully enjoy this one. This book just as the other ones started where we left off in the previous book but with this book it wraps up their story. Although the Ms. Archer did leave me wanting to read more on Gareth and Beth.
For me this was a really good series and I hope to read mo

3.5/5⭐️ - The fourth and final part or Leander and Taylor’s leg of the story. This has been an entertaining read! Was is great? No, but it was good enough to hold my attention across four parts/novellas and keep me interested in continuing on with the series. This final part was definitely my favorite part of the four, and the reason I will likely continue reading on to Beth and Gareth’s story.

Taylor was much better in this last part. We learned more about what she is, and got to see her grow a

Continues right were book 3 left off and BAM we are hit with all kinds of goodies in this book! Taylor is no longer our little damsel in distress now she is a BAMF and gives no effs. Not going to lie I'm liking new Taylor. I am a little confused however, it seems there is a book 5 and while I realize with that ending the story is far from over, I'm wondering if we aren't going to be getting into some of our other entourage's stories soon? Looks like Taylor might have fixed the mate curse there? ...more

the end of Leander & Taylor...

I lived this series! But hell man, Cenet was a straight up douche. I honestly think Gareth (not in this book though) and Selene were my favorite characters. Oh and Feral Taylor...that was awesome. I deff recommend this series 💋

A big fat meh for this one.

I wasn’t a fan of Evil Taylor character arc. But I did like the snarky sister.

Oh well. Leander was still great.

I’m ready for Beth’s story.

Didn’t see that coming

But I totally should have. This was a really satisfying conclusion to act one of this story. And knowing who we get to narrate the next bit makes my heart so happy. This book was longer then the rest which helped with the wrapping up nicely. There was one bit that felt a little rushed. There should have been more tension internally before a certain control snaps but other then that I’d say it was all handled really well for the allotted time and space. I will for sure be co

This is the fourth and last installment in Leander and Taylor’s story. It was intriguing and so easy to read! The ending though wasn't my favorite as it's more of a "Happy for Now" kinda ending with a glimpse in Beth's story. ...more

I feel like it was rushed? Evil is finally revealed and then defeated within a few chapters, seeming so easy even though the previous books spoke of how terrifying and powerful the threat was.

Despite this, the writing is still really good and I like the characters.

Yikes, this was...something. And can I just say, Taylor constantly comparing thing in the fae world to pop culture is just lazy exposition and a poor method of trying to get away with blatantly ripping something off. I hope Beth and Gareth's story is better because they were the best part of this series. ...more

So honestly the entire time I was reading this I was like, is this Game of Thrones?? The King Beyond the Mountain (Wall), some other odds and ends that I can't recall right now, anyway, what I'm saying is that it had that GOT vibe about it.

This is the final book for the h/H pair and it had a satisfying ending. I did think that it went a little over long with the wedding. Ceclie and other Taylor were such minor characters that I literally didn't care about any resolution with them which seemed t

This was such a great ending to Taylor and Leander’s story, but I guess it was more of a to be continued for the overall story. I am really hoping that we get to see all of Leander’s comrades find their mates as well. Plus I am not ready to leave this world!

In this book we finally get the answers about what Taylor is and her past. I will say that the ending did feel a bit rushed and I wish it would have been a little longer, but overall, I am super happy about how this story wrapped up.

I want more of Selene!!! She was the highlight in this book.

I still feel the story is not concluded. We still have an unwritten path for Taylor to take and now the bargain she made is hanging over her.

I will say Epilogue II was the shit. I was not surprised and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The intro to Beth+Gareth's story, I'm still not so sure about it. I keep wondering is theirs a love that will grow or is it that Gareth felt the mating bond and kept quiet about it?

There is a wide cast of character

Wow! What a finish to Leander and Taylor's story! Lots happened throughout this book that I wasn't expecting. So all that was a nice surprise. Taylor and Leander's story gets wrapped up really well in this book. And I can only expect that they'll grow more throughout the next books. But since the next books are following Beth and Gareth maybe we'll only learn more of Taylor and Leander in passing. Who knows. But I'm definitely giving the next books a go. :D ...more

Wow! AWESOME Series!

I'm loving this series so far! I can't wait for the next book in this series!
The world building is awesome and POV from hero and heroine.
I'm just wondering what's preventing other Fae from recognizing their mates? What's blocking it?

Oh hell yes! Now this is the icing on the cake. Darkness and light duke it out and I couldn't be happier with how it all played out.

I highly recommend this series! Fast, fun and entertaining.
