Chrysander Notos, Supreme God of the South Wind and Summer is determined to stop his brother Eurus. He has spent the last three months battling him and he still can beat him. When an intense battle leaves him wounded he is rescued by Laney Summerlyn.
I really enjoyed this one. This book was action packed with everyone joining forces to take down Eurus and protect the humans. Eurus and Chrys’s pasts are heartbreaking and traumatizing. It really makes you understand the anger behind Eurus’s attacks on his brothers.
Laney and Chrys were such a cute couple. They both just want to be loved as they are. Laney is so caring and is always trying to take care of and protect Chrys. I really liked Laney because she doesn’t let her failing vision stop her for living her life. Chrys was very protective of Laney but he tries to keep her at arms length. He eventually realizes that he doesn’t want to live without her though. These two had a strong emotional connection and a very steamy relationship that I just loved.
The war really ramps up in this book. There are losses for both sides and it was heartbreaking, so be prepared with some tissues. This was such an emotional book filled with sadness and love. Kaye does an amazing job at wringing all the emotions out of you.
