Rating:3.5 stars

Thief. Murderess. Sacrificial messenger. Netriet has faced death many times but she never consented to the transformation she endured the last time her life was pulled back from the ede of death. She’s compelled to live a solitary life for fear the shadow insider her will terrify others. Lonely, Netriet longs for acceptance and friedship. Joining up with the Fair, a haven for misfits, she believes she’s found home and love with Merick.

The ghosts of Merick’s past haunt him. Helplessly attracted to Netriet, he’s sworn to help her destroy the shadow within, but lsing his heart to her cripples him with fear. Mistakes and misunderstanding push her away and Merick’s forced to watch her flee into the arms of another man.

Torn between two men, Netriet’s true nature is drawn to one, while the shadow yearns for the other. At war with the darkness, Netriet must choose, or let the shadow swallow her completely.

The fate of Regia’s new republic hangs in the balance as a new enemy arises, backed by a group of violent insurgents bent on destroying everything Forest has worked for. Desperate for intelligence about the terrorist group, Forest learns the leader wants not only to claim the throne, but also her life.

Review:Why would you end it like that?

We get two separate stories rolled into one. On one we have Netriet and Merick. On the other hand we have Forest and the insurgents.

I like the story surrounding Forest. It stays with the other books. I wanted to know more about the insurgents and their leader who happens to call Forest ‘little sister’. I wonder what he is.

With Netriet and Merick they get a tricky story. Merick has feelings for Netriet but he can’t seem to express them clearly. There wasn’t really a love triangle. It’s hard to explain due to me not wanting to ruin the entire story line for these two and the other dude.

I’m not a huge fan of Netriet. I just never was. With the shadow in her she seemed more petty to me.

But I am a fan of Forest and Syrus. The ending… I have no words. Poor Syrus. I can only imagine what he felt through his bond with Forest. Well on to the next one.
