Ten years ago, King Lorcan of the Dark Kingdom Dorjhalon defeated Queen Evelayn and cut her conduit stone from her. Since then, he has kept her trapped in her swan form. With the loss of balance between Dark and Light, winter has descended and the Draíolon of Éadrolan lose more power every day. But once a year, Lorcan transforms her back to her Draíolon form and offers a truce. And every year Evelayn refuses -- for he requires her to Bind herself to him for life.But now, with an Ancient power bearing down upon them, everything may change. Evelayn will learn that the truths she once believed have shattered, and that she may need her enemies even more than her allies. Lorcan and Evelayn become partners in a desperate quest to return the balance of power to Lachalonia. How far will this partnership go? Can friendship -- perhaps even love -- bloom where hatred has taken root?Sara B. Larson delivers a thrillingly romantic and hauntingly satisfying end to this extraordinary duology.

After being defeated by King Lorcan, Evelayn is forced to live in her swan form for ten years. In that time, her kingdom is left without its power and its queen. When Evelayn is turned back into her human form with Athrufar nearing, Lorcan is unable to turn her back into a swan. Instead, he sneaks her into his room in what used to be her home.

All Evelayn wants is for her kingdom to be saved and for her conduit stone to be returned to her. But it isn't as simple as that. Lorcan wants Evelayn to Bound herself to him and only then will he help return her magic. It isn't an easy thing to do since he's the one who killed her former betrothal Tanvir. However, secrets, truths, and betrayals become uncovered and Evelayn doesn't know who to trust. Lorcan may be all she has and her only hope of retrieving her conduit stone.

This was an epic conclusion to the Duology. It was full of so much betrayel, action, and blooming love that I devoured it in one night. I love how everything ends and ties together. I have to say that Lorcan grew on me. He had his reasons for everything he did.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fantasy, magic, Swan Lake, romance, and kingdoms and royalty. The second was as good as the first and it's one of those books that linger with you even after you've finished it.
