What can I say about this book? A few words that springs to my mind is; gripping, magnificent love story, gut-wrenching, tear inducing, strength, forgiveness in many ways and the wonders of love.
I loved this story, it caught me totally off guard and forced me to keep reading ‘til my eyes were crossing and my head was pounding with lack of sleep. Not to mention how grumpy I was the day after!! Do I regret it? Hell no!
Trik is the Dark Elf Kings assassin, you can’t find a Dark Elf with a more selfish and black heart even if you tried. The word “No” is not a part of his vocabulary.
Cassie is the very opposite of Trik. Innocent, maybe a little naïve from time to time, but her heart, her soul is as pure as freshly fallen snow. She believes in the good in people, in doing what’s right and for fighting for what you believe in – and she has a backbone like no other.
Together they’re a force to be reckoned with, their combined love for each other binding them together and giving strength.
There are so many incredible things in this book; Trik is a complicated character, more than meets the eye (if he chooses to), Cassie with her insecureness, her inner strength and wisdom. Elora with her dry sense of humor, being loyal to the end, and her endless depot of snarky remarks. The Light Elf Queen (Syndra) and her husband, the King (Tamsin) is brilliant in their own – and let’s not forget about the Dark Elf King and Queen- what a pair!!
I think I told you already, but it deserves a repeat; I loved this book. It took me to a whole other world, showed me how a good writer can transform words into magic and take you away for hours.
When I closed in on the ending, my heart tore, I was almost afraid to go on because I was so sure nothing good come out of it. I had to leave my computer and take a short walk, that’s how intense it was for me. And it was a SHORT walk, because I even though I was afraid, I still wanted to know what happened!!
Quinn, your book ruined my sleep, made me grumpy the day after, made me smile, cry and several times I wanted to reach into the book and shake (or slap) one (several) of the characters. THANK YOU!! When is the next book coming?! :-)

I have to say when I read the description I was intrigued. As I started to read the thrill of what the description made me feel ran out. The female lead is very clingy, and very typical so much so I can't even remember her name anymore! I don't know, this plot had so much more potential. And then it just slipped into something absurd. It's a good flip through I guess, and would I read the next one, yeah sure why not - but that's just me - i like to stick onto painful stuff just cuz I like a closure in anything i see or read. here's crossing my fingers that the next one is better if there is a next one!
