The only reason why I'm reading this book was wanting to know what happen in Fireham and so that i could associate physical pain of wisdom tooth with this book. Review later. ( )

Kathryne Kennedy definitely keeps me guessing. When I first read The Fire Lord's Lover I was blown away. The world building was amazing, I loved the characters and the story was intriguing. Then I read Beneath the Thirteen Moons which was painful. So I wasn't sure what to expect from this one but had high hopes since it was a sequel to The Fire Lord's Lover and while I knew it would focus on new characters I hoped it would contain the same level of world building and character development that the previous book contained. Unfortunately the book just left me feeling ho hum. As a disclaimer it might just be because like I mentioned in my review of The Fire Lord's Lover the world building was so good I would have preferred this series to be a fantasy series with a little bit of romance thrown in rather than a romance series with some fantasy aspects thrown in. So I felt like we lost a little bit of that in this book. It focused more so on the romance which as with a lot of romance books was predictable.

I did not feel strongly one way or another about either Cecily or Giles so I did not feel very invested in their romance. I think what caused the most disappointment for me was that we were given so many more tantalizing glimpses into the Elven world, how they came to settle in England and the intricacies of their relationship with magic, the dragons and each other but then we would always veer back to the romance. So for those who view this series as pure romance then you will probably enjoy it. If you are like me and more fascinated with the world Kennedy created and wanting to see more of the story behind the elves and humans then you might be a tad disappointed that we didn't get more. This book really hasn't pushed me one way or another into the like or dislike camp of Kennedy's books so I will probably pick up the next book before making my final decision on whether or not to keep up with the series.
