I love everything about this duology.

UMBERTOUCHED is the end to the Rosemarked Duology and I'm blown away by it.

When Zivah and Dineas are discovered to be spies, their only choice is to flee back home. However, it's harder than they expect, especially since Dineas is plagued by nightmares and memories of time spent as an Amparan soldier. He's almost split in two, an inner battle that struggles to clear the path for what's right in the war. Shidadi or Amparan? Not to mention that his Shidadi comrades are suspicious of him being a traitor.

Zivah has her mind set on doing what's right when it comes to the vow she took as a healer. However, the Shidadi leaders want to take out the Amparan numbers the same way Kiran does: wielding the rose plague like a weapon. Zivah is the only one with talent enough to pull it off, but she won't be a part of something that's against everything she stands for. Instead, she needs answers and there's only one healer who has it.

Things are strange between Zivah and Dineas through this whole story because Zivah feels guilty for the side effects the potions had on Dineas. He feels like he let her down by not being the happy person he was in Amparan. Both of them are scarred from the things they've seen and done, but nothing can break the bond that's been forming between them.

I absolutely love everything about this book. Not one complaint. The twists and turns it took had me on an exciting ride and I didn't want it to stop! I look forward to more books from Livia Blackburne. I love the ending!


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, romance, action, war, politics, proving yourself, and stories with strong heroines who are strong even though their days are numbered.
