A little about the book:
“Twenty-eight year-old Cassie Strega can’t escape fate.
All she wants is to live a normal, quiet life delivering the babies in her small town. But when she discovers she comes from a lineage of witches, her life becomes extraordinary—in the gravely dangerous type of way.
Then, she’s reunited with her first love.
Orion, the sultry Fae warrior who broke her heart years before, is searching for a baby. Not just any baby, but the queen of the Fae who will one day lead them in their final battle against the demons determined to rule the world. The same baby who has been calling to Cassie for help in her dreams.
Fighting the intense attraction of their former blood bond, Cassie and Orion work together to find the child. But when the heartbreak that nearly destroyed Cassie nine years before looms once more, she’ll have to decide whether getting involved in the supernatural war is worth losing everything, including her life.”
A wonderful book by one of my favorite authors.
With her first Adult/ Paranormal/ Fantasy Novel, McGarry delivers a story with her characteristic elements; intrigue, anguish, and of course deep emotions, in a world of magic, witches, fairies, and demons.
The narrative is outstanding, as well the descriptions, especially the action scenes and all these new lands. It felt like the author took the reader's hand to bring us inside the pages, and as I always say, Mcgarry has a gift to keep us over the edge, deeply connected with the story with every word.
I particularly enjoyed Cassie development, how she became stronger as the story progressed, also how she held her ground about what she wanted and what she believed. How she owned her mistakes and accepted the consequences of her choices.
Orion on the other hand seemed to be the perfect paper boyfriends, except for this something that didn’t convince me, maybe he was too martyr, and even when at the end I finally trusted him, it was really difficult to care for him.
Another thing that didn’t convince me was the dumped info, these dialogues with question-answer-question-answer. I understand the reader needs to know and maybe this was the best way to do it, However, it clashed with the well-written descriptions.
Overall is a fast-speed reading with a complex plot full of twists, and I can't wait for the next one!!!
