4 stars – It was really good

For centuries Aodhan and Illium have been inseparable. But since the war things have not been the same. Now they have to find out if they can repair their friendship or it might be the end of them.

This was a slow burn. Illium and Aodhan have been tense in the past few books because Aodhan is finally coming out of his shell and Illium is still trying to shelter him. This has caused some hurt feelings on both sides and it finally takes a year apart for them to discuss it. I enjoyed their reunion and the tense but important talks they had. It was hard for both of them to discuss the problems because it was painful, and because they both didn’t want to live without each other. 

These two do finally become a couple in this book but it is towards the very end. So we have only seen the very beginning of this relationship, which I hope means that we will see more moments of them in future books. But I am so glad that they finally admitted their feelings. Also, who knew Aodhan would be so possessive! 

For the overarching story, we are starting to see the recreation of China and Suyin’s court. I really like Suyin so far and really can’t wait for her book. A new character is introduced in this book and I am very intrigued on how that character will progress in the future.  I feel that the character will potentially be an important one in the future but we will see. 

Overall, this was a wonderful book. I really enjoyed the switches from the present to Illium and Aodhan’s past. It really showed a whole new side to these two, and other characters as well. Also I wanted to cry when we finally found out what happened to Aodhan, so be prepared for potential tears. 

Trigger Warning: Aodhan was kidnapped, tortured, and abused in the past.
