Where To Buy:

I freaking adore this series. Reading this book reminded me how much I love the world Hannah created in this series. It’s so rick and complete. There’s so much thought put into how the clans interact, the politics and rules, the animals and the scenery. It’s like I’m right there in that world. I would gladly visit this world and meet these people. The way she describes things are effortless and you don’t have that info dump feeling when you learn new things. When she’s introducing something unique to her world, she gives enough information to give you a point of reference in the real world. But not so much you feel like you’re reading a glossary.
This book starts not long after the previous ends. We learn more of what’s going on and how the clans are stacking up against each other. I loved being able to just sink into the story and watch all of the events unfold and how the group of friends and family handle the situation as it evolved and changes. There’s something brewing between the Conclave and King Kastain. There’s also more rules than is being introduced so far. It seems to be done on purpose so we only have part of that story. I’m eager to know more about it. I love how she gives you the pieces you need to not be lost, but not so much she gives away the whole plot before it’s time.
Getting to watch Tate and Dariux finally be able to admit their feelings for each other was lovely. Tate’s past plays a huge role in the progression of the relationship between Tate and Dariux. When his whole history is revealed my heart broke for him. Dariux is such an amazing support and the perfect mate for him. They worked together to help overcome their issues. The emotions between them are wonderful to read. Tate has an amazing code of honor. He will truly give anything to those he considers family. Even his life if it would save another. Dariux is much the same but he hasn’t had the opportunity to show that as readily as Tate has. Both men are wonderfully written and come across and guys you’d be honored to consider a friend.
Throughout the book you also get to see the bond between all of the Avanti and their new friends and family. It’s such a joy to watch how they all support each other when they need it the most. The omniscient point of view is interesting to read. I love getting to see some of the other characters’ thoughts and feelings as we go instead of waiting for their story to get to know them. Atistian is a fun character and I want more of him. Though he’s not overly important, he was a great addition in this story. Though with Leodar showing up at the end, I have a feeling my wish will come true.
The bond between Tate and Yanick is beautiful. The way Ms. Walker depicts the refrinti makes me want to meet one. They are majestic beasts where smart is too tame a word to describe them. I get the feeling they’re going to be important throughout the large series arc based on some clues we get in this story. But it could be my own wishful thinking on that since Yanick was an important part of Tate’s story.
The ending is a pleasant mix of wonderful happily ever after for Tate and Dariux while still leaving part of the overarching plot still open to continue in the next book. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
