If Raine wasn't an elf - and therefore Sarad's number one target - and she didn't care so much about the mage students on Mid - Sarad's number one sacrifices - she might almost be relieved. Oh, except she's still bonded to that stupid rock, so any soul-sucking it does has to go through her first.
Luckily there's a plan. Raine and her friends will sneak into the highly paranoid, mage-controlled Goblin capital city, steal back the rock, release all the trapped souls to the Reapers, while stopping them from taking Raine's too, destroy the Saghred - thereby halting the Goblin apocalypse - kill Sarad Nukpana and replace the current Goblin king with his slightly more acceptable brother. Oh yes, and try not to die. Simple... apart from the small problem that Raine's magic is missing, but details, details.
Raine is back, and on the do or die mission to end all suicide missions. If you're new to this series ( Magic Lost, Trouble Found etc) stop right now and go back to the beginning. The action in this book starts from the off and doesn't let up until the end. There are no catch-ups and very few breathers. Even existing fans might need a quick refresher before starting this one.
And that might be why I didn't enjoy this as much as usual. The action is so relentless that there's little time for anything else - and a distinct lack of Mychael, despite him being there throughout. Oh, there's still a smattering of humour, plenty of magic and loads of Plan Bs, but this felt more like the second-half of something than a complete book. I also felt a little frustrated by the limitations of Raine's pov. There were times I'd have loved to have seen what some of the others were up to, particularly Talon.
In terms of the series, though, this is a must read. After all the thieving, countertheft, kidnappings, tricks, deaths, resurrections and worrying mental states this is finally it. Do or die. This is where failure to finally deal with the Saghred is no longer an option. It's taken a while to get here, but in those terms it's worth it. True, I think the dramatic tension was somewhat lacking, but at least the story's never slow.
A good continuation of the series, if not quite as fun or imaginative as others, fans should try and refresh themselves before reading this. I suspect it all flows better that way. And with an ending like this, I wonder where Shearin will turn her attention next.
Raine and co go off to stop him and have to use the very questionable help of a certain old foe and his ability to use mirror magic.
This novel finishes off this saga but leaves an opening for future adventures but I won't say who died, who survived but only that the goblins have a gas compound that invokes paralysing fear in goblins but causes anyone with elven blood into homocidal maniacs with a level of overconfidence that has to be read to be believed!
Don't believe me?
Buy this book and read for yourself!
Some very remarkable revelations and a few new characters both on the good and bad guy side makes me wish someone would turn this into at least a tv mini-series!
Yes i enjoyed it and heartily recommend you read for yourself, for full enjoyment if you haven't yet pick up the rest of the series you won't regret it!!!
It has been great fun to follow the neck breaking journey of Reine through battles with demons, evil stones and horrid adversaries. She managed to collect lovers, stay close to her friends and not lose her sense of humour. It looks like this book leaves her in a really good place and now the big question is where will Lisa Shearin be leading us in her next book and how soon that will happen?
