A couple of yrs after Keegan and her chosen elf mate, Rourke marry and get their starter house, Rourk is off to Afghanistan as a soldier in the human army, something elves do before they join the elfin army. As one can expect, there is tragic loss in that 'family' before there is tragic loss in his & Keegan's. There is a happy ending, but not before fighting a d'jinn and traveling half way around the world to do it.
Keegan is much more of a fighter in this book than in previous books. Of course, she's in her early 20s now and not in high school. There was a part where her brother- the all Seer, Thaddeus- and she were brushing up on her training that she didn't really use later in the book. That's probably the only part that disappointed me. I'd have liked to see her physically kick some butt a bit more, but she does get away from her attacker and go through a really rough time after wards.
This might not be as dark as some things out there, but for Crane it's darker than usual. The end, however, does justify the means, and that actually makes everything up to that point worth while (which is more than I can say for some "books" out there).
IMO, the story does not satisfactorily deliver what the teaser (product description) implied. Rourk has the pivotal initial confrontation with the djinn more than 60% into the story. (He only catches passing glimpses of djinns before that point.) Likely if the teaser was worded differently, I'd be happier with the story.
For me, the best parts of the story/book are:
(1) The growth/sense of maturity of the characters. Both Rourk and Keegan are in their early 20's when this story opens... and throughout this story they act like young, responsible adults who are very much in love with each other.
(2) The book's cover. (Yes, it's very trivial but there it is. :) )
Seeing Rourk's journeys as a warrior, how he handled the stress of his missions was interesting. Reading it with terminology that was accurate was refreshing. His struggles as he knew Keegan was in danger definitely pulled at the heartstrings. As Keegan went through intensely difficult and heartbreaking life changing events it was at times almost hard to read. This was a great continuation of their story.
