by Ronie Kendig
Leif Metcalfe is done waiting for answers and seizes control, a move that comes with a high price and a deadly risk: teaming up with the enemy. He can only hope that what he uncovers will heal the wounds he’s inflicted on those he loves.
Iskra Todorova believes Leif is on a collision course with death and knows firsthand the irrevocable cost of that path to the soul. While trying to protect her daughter and intervene with Leif, Iskra is forced to set her sights on the man behind the evil organization ArC–Ciro Veratti.
Torn apart by injuries and opposing views on how to handle Leif’s act of treachery, team Reaper hunts one of their own. The only thing they agree on is not stopping but starting the final battle prophesied in the Book of the Wars.
What a ride.
This book was very bittersweet for me.
I have absolutely loved this series, and I couldn’t wait to read the ending.
And yet, there’s just something about reaching the end of a lovely series about such amazing characters…I didn’t really want to reach the end, you know…
Ronie Kendig did it again.
She’s written a spellbinding tale of action, military intrigue, danger, team loyalty, and so much more.
If you haven’t read the first two in the series, you will definitely want to go read them before starting this one, because this continues the threads of the other two.
I was a bit worried about Leif when I finished the previous book.
But this book gives a lot more details about what is going on with him.
Ronie’s heroes are always very real. In spite of character traits that aren’t always desirable, I just loved Iskra, Mercy, and Leif, and the rest of the team.
This tale is top-notch intrigue and lots of danger thrown in.
So many details, characters, events, lots of things going on, it is a racetrack ride from the first page to the very end. Ms. Kendig sure knows how to write these, and write them well. As with the earlier books, this one has just a bit of futuristic effects…or at least things I hope are impossible in our world today!
The tie to the Book of Wars, to reach a satisfactory conclusion in this book, showing what all was really going on, this was written in such an exquisite manner. I love reading about ancient books, paintings, etc., and seeing possibilities to their meanings, and having it play out in such an exciting manner as in this story.
Fans of suspense, and lots of action, this is one book you won’t want to miss!
