I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
About the book:
Men can love, but they can also hate. Noll knows too well that the men in her village have adjusted poorly to the freedom of their hearts, but she hopes to bring peace back to her community. With the lord’s return, Noll feels confident that together, they can work to settle down the villagers, but in his rebirth, he remembers only one thing about her: that she caused the curse that tortured him for a millennium in the first place.
Determined to start anew, Noll must accept that, romantically, she and the lord are better without one another, but she’ll need his help to uncover what’s really behind all of the suffering in her village. Escorted to a land beyond the mountains, Noll uncovers the truth about her village and the strange occurrences in which she’s had a hand. When someone who loves her discovers the same things and betrays her, Noll feels powerless to stop her village’s fate. By learning to forgive and seek forgiveness, Noll finally understands true love of a free heart—along with true sacrifice.
It makes me so happy to finally come at the conclusion of this book. This trilogy was a combination of ups and downs for me but this book is definitely an UP. I adore how the characters have grown and the story matured. This is the last book, so everything is out in the open now, all the secrets exposed, all mysteries explained. And I like how towards the end it turns into a power struggle among the men and women, to find who’s stronger or better. Plus, the cliffhanger in the last book really had me intrigued for this one and it didn’t disappoint. The book to keep an eye on the villagers, the gold bangle, the hole behind the throne and most of all Aillil, these are all the elements that joined up to create a much bigger hidden plot. And I liked all of it.
I’m definitely keeping an eye out for this author’s other books.
