Here, the future of humankind hangs on the uncertain fortune of Morn Hyland in a daring novel of epic power and suspense, relentlessly gripping from first page to last.
Absolutely absorbing! The series really gets a lot more complex in this third novel, expanding to many more characters and devious plots. While the first book was quite a bit randy, and the second a little racy, this one isn't spicy like that at all. The characters are far more developed than ever before. The storyline is utterly absorbing and its a roller coaster of plots and twists. I am completely hypnotized by this series and can't wait to absorb the next book now! It's definitely becoming one of my beloved series on my bookshelf!
