I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
THERE WERE THREE THINGS I WAS CERTAIN ABOUT.
First, I would never kill another person. But when a family friend murdered my father, I destroyed her with a power I didn’t even know I possessed.
Second, I would never strike another bargain. But faeries could bring the dead back, so when Cruz offered to revive my father, I accepted.
Third, I would never marry an enemy, but every bargain comes at a price. The price of mine: I had to marry Cruz and move to the faerie isle.
For the first time in my life, I wondered if death wouldn’t be a kinder end.
I can’t even begin to describe how much I loved this book, but I’m going to have to try. This series was in last year’s “favorite books of the year” list, and I’m already confirming that this book will make an appearance on this year’s list.
The third installment of this series embodied everything I loved about the first two, but also managed to amp things up even more. The stakes are higher, the romance is steamier, and the enemies are much more deadly. If you thought that Catori and the gang had already been through the wringer, you haven’t seen anything yet. I had some seriously sweaty palms reading some of these scenes. Also, while we’re on the topic of sweat, let’s talk about romance. There are some ~sTeAmY~ scenes in this book. Like, almost “make you blush” scenes. I loved it.
Steam and danger aside, I loved the character development and the relationships that form throughout the story. I refuse to give any huge spoilers, so I can’t actually talk about two of my favorite character arcs, but I can talk about the friendship that forms and really strengthens between Lily and Catori. I love female friendships, and theirs is one of my favorites. Seeing two women who are so strong in different ways come together and support each other is truly the best.
Rising Silver Mist rounds out this series perfectly, but I’m still so sad to see it go. The author does have a spinoff planned for Lily, so I’m eagerly anticipating that to fill the hole in my bookish heart! I give Rising Silver Mist 5 out of 5 stars.
