I read this one with so much trepidation!
I was worried with every page of the Darkness that always held the possibility of reigning control! I actually think it's awesome and a testament of PC Cast's ability as an author to hold us in suspense until the last page.

"3.5 out of 5 stars. It could be because this is the first book out of this series that I’ve read, even though Ms. Cast has stated that she’s made each novel from this series able to stand alone if need-be, but if I hadn’t liked the House of Night series so much I would have probably stopped this book without finishing it. I say that since the book is divided into parts and the prologue and the first part/section I had to force myself through it was so slow. But thankfully..."

18 years after the events of Divine by Choice, Morrigan and Myrna have grown into lovely young ladies. Shannon is displeased that Myrna shows no signs of being the new goddess incarnate, Epona's Chosen. Morrigan, however, living with Shannon's parents in Oklahoma, and having no knowledge that her mother was Rhiannon instead of Shannon, finds that she can talk to stones. They call her the Light Bringer and want her to come harness her destiny in Parholon. Unfortunately, the Dark God Pryderi also wants Morrigan for his own and joins his whispers to those of Epona, the goddess Adsagsona, and Rhiannon in Morrigan's mind. Not knowing which voices to trust and being unfamiliar with the ways of Parthalon, Morrigan must make her own choices and decide for herself what her destiny will be.
Morrigan's dilemma was quite compelling; it was difficult even for the reader to tell which voices Morrigan should be trusting. It was disappointing that Shannon did not figure as much in this story, but her tale has been told. The introduction of the cave people, the Sidetha, was unexpected, but also interesting. A good wrap-up for the trilogy, although I guess there are two more books set in Partholon, I don't believe they feature the same characters. ( )

Very bittersweet... I hate it when a series I love ends. So I'm happy for the story, and sad for the end of it. Beautifully written, as the rest of the books were as well. ( )

Avoid unless a teenage acting 35 year old married to a centaur is your cup of tea. ( )
