Blurb: Eoin is faced with the end of times.
With his friends at his side, can he rescue the prisoner that might hold the secrets to winning the battle between Cariad and City as well as the key to his heart?
His bond brothers, Kian and Darach, probably hate him for his necessary lie and two-thirds of the Council wants him dead. Against all this he has to rescue a prisoner whose Amber Fire is killing him.
The third book in the Fire Trilogy discovers more old Guardians, ancient Cariad magik, and not least of all the other half of Eoin: Trystyn.
Review: This is the third and final installment of the Fire Trilogy. Kian is still with Regan, Darach is with Ceithin, and the four join forces with Eoin to find a source of Other world energy that they feel is likely Ceithin’s brother, Trystyn.
When they find him, Trystyn is near death, only his Amber fire a trickle keeping him alive. Eoin pours his own Amber fire into him, reviving him. They then put their heads together and plan a way to take the Council down.
They cross over back to the Other world and are met by one of the Councilmen on their side. Together they all make a plan, but in the meantime, Eoin and Trystyn recognize and begin to cement their own “forbidden” bond. (It has been prophesized that two Amber fires cannot bond without world destruction.)
Fortunately, the world doesn’t fall, though it is changed as the six men take back control of their world, aligning Cariads and City Dwellers again.
I thought the romance was a little thin in this story. Eoin and Trystyn interacted with each other only a little, most of this was drama between the other men and the action deciding how to wrest control back from the City Councilmen.
The story and world building were great, however, and I really like the world RJ Scott has created for us. Though there were more romantic elements in Kian’s story, most of this trilogy was a fantasy with a romantic twist rather than a romance with fantasy elements.
That being said, I’d give this final installment a 3.5 of 5 stars for the story and the entire trilogy a 3.5 of 5 stars overall.
If you like fantasy/adventure with a romantic twist this is right up your alley!
Overall Impression: I liked it
