“It’s quickly become one of my fave fantasy romances!”
~ Under the Covers
I hope by now you’ve been listening to me and reading this new series by Kerrelyn Sparks. It’s quickly become one of my fave fantasy romances! The world building and imagination is captivating and then the characters just make you want to continue reading. One of the most well-rounded series I’ve found in years in the genre.
So in this book we are getting Gwennore’s HEA. She’s an Elf and one of The Embraced sisters we’ve been following in this series. She’s forced to travel to a land far away to protect someone dear to her, and she stumbles across a lot of secrets, intrigue and … dragons! The romance between Gwen and Silas is very much a slow burn, more so than the previous two books in the series. I really enjoyed that pacing for their story because it was a sweet and tentative development of their connection and I just wanted to continue reading and seeing their next interaction. Definitely, these two are adorable together!
But as much as the romance is awesome, these two as separate characters also stand out as well. Silas is so delicious and he has a lot he needs to hide to keep his people safe. Not only that, him and his family have lived with a curse their whole lives and have no way how to fix it.
I think this is also a book that moves the overall series arc forward a lot and opens up the world to so many more possibilities and connections that I’m excited to see developed further in the upcoming books.
If you like royal intrigue, ancient castles and sexy shifters then pick this up immediately. Such a fun read and I didn’t want it to end. Can we just have the next one now?

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
