I was gifted my copy direct from the author, and I thank Ms Pauls for that.
This is book 3 in the series, and you really must read book two, Aeromancist : The Beginning, before you embark on this one. This is a continuation of that story, and picks up two weeks after that one finished.
Two weeks after Lann left her, Katherine makes a discovery that rocks her, and Lann, to their very core. Lann is now forced to choose: his legacy, or the love of his live, Katherine.
Its really hard to write a review without giving ANY of the plot line away, so I apologise is I slip up, but I'm going to try really REALLY hard not to! I eagerly awaited this instalment, after being left hanging from book two, and it did not disappoint! After Katherine's discovery and Lann's confession, they are faced with a terrible decision and Katherine, unable to make that decision, runs. Can't say I blame her. But when Lann saves her from those who wish to harm her, she knows she should stay with Lann, even if it means her end.
I mentioned in my review for book two, that we don't get enough of Lann. We do here! Its even spaced out, between Lann and Katherine having their say, in the third person.
There are bigger, darker forces at work in the book, and some of that story arc will have to run over into any future books, as its left open ended and unfinished. I would like to think that Nicholas will pop up again at some point, if only to help bring Godfrey to account for his actions.
Joss, Clelia, Maya, Bono and Cain all play a part, and I was glad to catch up with them. I did feel for Clelia though, at points, when she was talking with Katherine. Her hope, and pain, jumped off the page. I'm glad she has more hope now, though.
Who is next?? I've no idea. Bono will fall hard and fast, and Maya? She'll fight it all the way, tooth and nail. Maybe, Ms Pauls will throw someone new in the mix, with an Art we have yet to come across. I don't care, really, just as long as I don't have to wait too long! Are you listening to me, Ms Pauls?!?! Not too long!!
