And Bowen? he's to die for!
Let me say after the last book 'No Rest for the Wicked ' which I didn't like, I wasn't sure what to expect in this one. All I can say is that I couldn't put this book down until I finished, and what a climatic ending. Absolutely loved it.
The romantic aspect of this book was so very believable. Bowen and Mari were perfect together.
At 1200 years, Bowen, a ruthless warrior who had lost his mate grew even colder, never taking another to his bed, until a smoldering encounter with his enemy, Mariketa the Awaited reawakens his darkest desires. And finds his Instincts kicking up soon after meeting Mari much to his horror since Bowen as a deep hatred of witches.
Mari is a fiery red-haired witch only 23 and mortal.
Bowen's only aim in life is to win Thrane's Key, that will allow him to go back in time to save his mate who died almost 200 yrs ago. Hence his taking part in the 'Hie'. All the while doing this he tries to fight his insane attraction to Mari, accusing her of enchanting him with a love spell.
Bowen is one gorgeous Lykae, with a big chip on his shoulder. Finding out how this couple fight every obstacle, sometimes apart and sometimes together, to finally overcome the enemy and get together makes for enthralling reading.
You feel the emotions they go through, when things seem to come apart. This book is a fast-paced fantasy adventure, filled with rage, anger, passion and finally love.
Absolutely great story! Can't wait to start the next book.
