As the nobles of Celeria foolishly contemplate opening borders for the traitorous Eld, Rain must find a way to show that the Eld are still as evil as they were 1000 years ago and keep his soul mate Ellie safe. Ellysetta also has her own battles to face as she discovers her origins that have the power to turn her truemate Rain away from her.
This series just gets better and better!
Rain and Ellysetta are fast becoming one of my favourite romantic couples. What I like about their romance is that although it is a fated-to-be-mated plot line, they still have doubts Ellie based in her insecurity about who she is and Rain through his past experience of love the consequences of which scorched the world. So, although they are soul mates I like the slow build up of trust between them and watching Ellie’s feeling going from hero-worship and fear to something deeper. Having said that, the first two books are set over 10 days, it just feels much longer from all the events that happen to them!
Not only do Rain and Ellie make these books for me, but the secondary characters in this also come to vivid life from C.L. Wilson’s fantastic writing. Ellie’s quintet, her parents, the King & Queen they all have a role to play and Wilson manages to wrangle all sorts of emotions from you in this book through them.
As well as the romance between Rain and Ellie and teh character, what also draws me to this series is the pending war between the Eld and the Fey. I can’t wait to see what happens next, this book gives you a lot more details on the Mage’s activities and I can’t wait to see what happens next. I am particually looking forward to see how Ellie is meant to heal the Tairen.
This is a great series a blend of romance and adventure, magic and swords and I can’t wait to start on the next one.
They could not fight. They could not win. But with each moment left for them to live, they could love. That was the greatest gift the gods could ever give, and it was worth the price they would have to pay.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
