"You do realise," he whispered, his hand reaching up to brush my hair from my face. He began twining a strand around one of his fingers. "That you are my most magnificent obsession." Magnificent obsession. I think I liked that. I certainly understood it. He was mine too.
The explosive conclusion to the Kindred Series.
Confronted with yet another curve ball, Lucinda finds herself in Álfheimrat the mercy of the Dökkálfa. And the Fey have unusual rules, rules which even the Dark Fairies like to stretch. Throwing herself into the political machinations of her hosts, Lucinda must negotiate her release. But what could the Dökkálfa monarch want that would mean Lucinda's freedom?
Never one to have the patience for politics, Lucinda must adapt to new environments and new challenges, not just from the Fairies, but from all sides now. An old enemy rises to do more harm than good, forcing Lucinda to confront depths of loss she thought long buried. Struggling with her physical well-being, battling a political world that is now her home, and working against a powerful, devious and underhand enemy, Lucinda must draw on all her Light to succeed. However she is not alone. She is watched over by the spirit of a dragon. But everyone knows, the kiss of the dragon is as lethal as its flame.
The conclusion to the Kindred series begins when Lucinda is taken by the Fey. This time she must play by their rules, until it is time to fight for her release. But things start to happen that she never expected. Once, out of the Fey's clutches, she realizes that she must now fight a more political battle, then just using her stakes. And Lucinda has very little patience for this type of battle. Add into the mix she hasn't been feeling well, Michel's Vampire acting funny, and then an old enemy showing up and things are about to get more crazy in her world. They must figure it out before it is too late.
This book was freaking awesome. It picked up right when the last one ended, and then just took us on a whirlwind of changes. We get to see how different Lucinda is now. She isn't just a strong fighter, she's much stronger in other areas as well. And she got to shine a lot in this one. And we got to see more of Michel and Lucinda's beautiful relationship! They were awesome together in this one. Then we also got to see a freaking fang-tas-tic ending! I totally loved the end of this book. It was beautiful and had me in tears! Way to go Nicola! Now, I can not wait for the spin off to this series (if it happens, crosses fingers)!!
