O.M.G. Kristie Cook you have absolutely blown me away, out of this Universe and into the next Realm! I don't even know how to put this review into words, as I am speechless (and that rarely happens). I have trouble forming the right words, therefore I am not the best at writing reviews, so I hope this will suffice. I have been a HUGE fan ever since I read Promise (Book 1). Even back then, I thought, how could this story possibly get any better?! She just keeps proving me wrong each and every time. By the time I got through Power (Book 4), I was absolutely positive she would not be able to one-up that, and once again she showed me exactly what she could do! This book took me on the most intense emotional roller coaster I have ever experienced! It is packed with so much action, suspense, humor, mystery, love, admiration, loyalty, grief...and the list goes on and on. The story is so well thought out, imaginative, and beautifully written. Kristie is a genius storyteller, and her words flow perfectly. It will keep you on the edge of your seat all through out. Alexis has come such a long way since book one, and I am so proud of the woman she has become. She is the strongest, most powerful daughter the Amadis has ever seen, even more so than Cassandra, the first daughter. She is the epitome of bad-ass female heroines. Tristan is her second, her equal. He also is the epitome of bad-ass male hero's. Together they are a force to be reckoned with! This book is based on a mother's wrath, and as the saying goes, The most dangerous place in this world is between a mother and her child. Alexis will show you exactly what that means! By the time you get to the end of this book, you will have already gone through a turmoil of emotions, and, well, she saved the best for last! All I can say is that you will need at least a couple BOXES of tissues! Be prepared for the kind of grief that will leave you laying in the fetal position in a dark room for days! I can't even think of starting a new book right now because my mind and my heart are with Alexis, Tristan, Dorian, and all of the Amadis. I'm hoping to recover eventually! Then to top that off, she once again leaves you hanging with one of her notorious cliffhangers! This book is most definitely of EPIC proportions!! I don't know how I will find the patience to wait for book 6, but I know I'm ready right now!! I won't even challenge you to one-up this one, because as impossible as it seems, I know you will show me up again!(less)
