3 stars – I liked it

Torin and Aisling are hunting down a group of fae known as The Others when they come across Breda who is on the run from them. Torin finds himself captivated by Breda and is determined to save her. 

This was a very quick story. Torin and Breda instantly are attracted to each other and they quickly fall in love after only a few days together.  Torin opens up a little with Breda but we still don’t get a lot of his history, mostly just how he was betrayed. I just never really felt like I connected to Torin.   Breda grew up sheltered and abused by her family. I loved her joy at trying new things like rock climbing and swimming. She was fearless and I liked her a lot. I think her ability was interesting and it was sad how it had been used against her. 

There was some progress in the fight against The Others. The Reapers finally have their first confrontation with the ringleaders but it wasn’t very long. I was really expecting more of an impact with the first meeting but it was still a good start I think. Overall, this was a pretty good addition to the series. I do wish there had been more development on the relationship though because it felt a little rushed and flat at times. 

Trigger Warnings: Breda was physically and emotionally abused by her mother and grandmother.
