The Abyss is full of terrors, but the mines aren't much better. Gareth is with me every step of the way, protecting me and giving me more pleasure than I believed possible...

I thought once we reached the mines our journey would be at an end. With or without Clotty, we would travel to the winter realm and start our life together just as I'd sworn to Gareth all those

Start your review of Freedom (Fae's Captive, #8)

Freedom was meh until the end. Yes, Beth and Gareth are all chummy or whatever but they are boring in my eyes now. Things did get more interesting with Cenet back in the picture. I was hoping/praying that he was going to die and all but then the ending just intrigued the crap out of me. No idea what the heck the next book will bring me but I am so excited!

That is.. if there will be another book. Don't leave me with - going to my see my sister next (bitch) and mic drop me

My heart

What an ending tho! I wasnt prepared for how all this would make me feel. The topics of slavery and rebellion are ones that speak to me, k feel deeply about them. So seeing this quest for freedom was everything. The simple truth is that while I wish that the books were longer Im always invested in this world and these stories and my Beth deserved the world and so Im so thrilled that we got to see her in this way.

DNF at 60%.

Freedom is the eighth book in this series and the conclusion to Beth and Gareths story. While I enjoyed the first four books that centered around Leanders and Taylors story, I struggled with the last three installments which focused on Gareth and Beth. Sadly I could not even finish this one.

I liked Gareths character. He was a proud and loyal second in command to Leander, and he wanted nothing more than to find his mate and make her happy.

Unfortunately, I didnt care for Beth. She got

This is the final book that tells the story of Gareth and Beth. They must finish their journey through the Abyss, and free her pseudo mother Clotty and the other slaves in the mines. Once that is done they must rush back to Cranthum to save the city from C-nets army of undead and Queen Aurentias army on the other side determined to crush the slave rebellion. Oh, and theres the little issue of the fact that Beth is human with a humans life expectancy while Gareth a high fae is pretty much ...more

3 ½ stars rounded down.

Freedom finishes off the slavery in the Summer Realm story arc for Arin, including a cute HFN for Gareth and Beth. (view spoiler)

There's plenty more unicorn shenanigans and the addition of a "dirty" old lady in this installment to keep the comedic value high and balance out some of the sweet and

Crazy Journey

I loved so many parts of this book, and laughed at many more. I do think it is exceptionally crazy that it took EIGHT books to tell this saga-esque story and the BAD GUY STILL LIVES ON!!
As much as I loved Leander/Taylor (first 4 books) & Gareth/Beth (last 4 books) I just do not have it in me for another 8 or more books to "finish" the adventure. The author's note at the end of the book states two more characters will have their mate tales and then the final conclusion to the

Gareth and Beth's story is covered in books 5-8 of this series, and honestly from beginning to end, it was just good fun.
There are plenty of naughty bits, horny unicorns, dragons by another name and evil doings, but honestly, I can't think of a better way to start my reading new year.

After the stress of the holidays, this did exactly what I had hoped. I got a little escape from the chaos and just had a chance to laugh. I confess I'm not sure how many more times I could have survived their

Beth and Gareth

Wow! What a fantastic finale to a fantastic series. I love the relationship between Beth and Gareth. She broke all his rules and he just felt so hard and deep. Pack with action and adventure from the very first page and hot red romance that will get your panties in a twist. Fantastic plot, great characters and sub characters you can't not love. So sad to get to the end but Lily Archer promised more great stories and I can't hardly wait. Highly recommended

Great Ending to This Part of the Series

Freedom is the last book in the current series of stories that we have followed about Taylor and Beth. Other books have been promised. The story answers all of the remaining plot points and is well written. There is plenty of action and adventure and love also. This was a very easy read.

I really enjoyed Beth and Gareths story!

It was sad at parts but they changed the world they live in. Im excited to see who gets a story next!

Honestly the real stars of the show were the unicorns! They are just such nasty creatures and its hilarious! Especially when Gareth punches one in the face!

Wrapped up with a bow!

A great conclusion to Gareth and Beth's story. One slight issue with a change in narrator at the 10% mark. The story was being told in Gareth's point of view and suddenly "I" turned into Beth for a few lines of dialogue before it went back to Gareth's POV. Oops.

Lily Archer has a way with words . Her characters come alive with every thought and conflict they deal with . I can't seem to get enough of her rather raunchy Unicorns and crazy witches . I can't wait for what comes next .

Wonderful creative writing !!!

Unique storyline for the fae genre, extremes in emotion, from sad to happy, a Lot of devastation, from emotional to physical, and good versus evil. But definitely a must read !!!Great characters and fantastic world she's created.
Katherine Moore
Lily Archer is a must read author for the way she develops the fae world and the characters within. She holds you captive in as much as she has you becoming a part of her characters... have read all of the previous books of this Fae's Captive series and was not disappointed with even one of them.

Ok love the characters. Great story. Plenty of angst and action. But to still not have this story wrapped up by now? Just seems really drawn out with no final conclusion.

When I began writing Taylor and Leander's story, I had NO idea it would capture so many of your hearts and imaginations. Thank you for loving them as much as I do. You are making my dreams come true.

Lily Archer believes in fairies, mermaids, and fierce fae warriors. Armed with nothing more than her imagination and a well-worn MacBook, she intends to slay the darkest beasts of the fantasy worlds
