Tristan has agreed to bond with Ushna, but there is still much to do and returning to Tribe Enkidu puts everyone on edge. Tristan is being stalked like prey, all the while fighting depression as he mourns the loss of Nikita, and enduring a battle of wills with the Elder Council over his birthright. The pleading of his adoptive daughter only adds still more stress to the situation.
Stumbling onto a secret prison while searching for Ushna leads Tristan to risk everything to free a lost God. But breaking the tie to his Flame has more repercussions than Tristan knew and the assistance of a forgotten Goddess and a centuries old lover may not be enough to save him.
This is book four in the series and must be read in order.
This one picks up pretty much where we left off; we are days away from the births and the trip. Everyone is on edge, Stan and Randy are leaving to go do other business and Tristan and Ushna decide to blood bond, after the children are born. But first they need to deal with the counsel and the trail.
This one, unlike the others I’m finding is getting more and more into the fantasy realm. Really getting into the God/Goddess the stories in the past, present and future etc, including which character is born of which God and which one should worship which. It’s a lot to keep track of. We also really start getting into Tristan dreams and what it all will mean for the future and how they will live and deal with it. We’ve got a lot of action going one as well with Daniel showing back up and just when you think we’ve got it all planned out we are left with a cliff hanger ending.
