Kyon Ensin finally has what he’s always wanted: possession of Kricket Hollowell, the priestess who foresees the future. Together, their combined power will be unrivaled. Kricket, however, doesn’t crave the crown of Ethar—she has an unbreakable desire to live life on her own terms, a life that she desperately wants to share with her love, Trey Allairis.

As conspiracies rage in the war for Ethar, Kricket’s so-called allies want to use her as a spy. Even those held closest cannot be trusted—including Astrid, her sister, and Giffen, a member of a mysterious order with a hidden agenda. But Kricket’s resolve will not allow her to be used as anyone’s pawn, even as the Brotherhood sharpens its plans to cut out her heart.

As the destiny prophesied by her mother approaches, Kricket will backtrack through her fiery future to reshape it. For she knows one thing above all else: the only person she can truly count on is herself.

Quickie Review

This was a fantastic ending to this trilogy.  Some of the things that happened completely surprised me.  I wasn’t expecting to actually like Kyon.  The previous two books made me dislike him so much that it came as a shock to see him in a different light.

Kricket has some tough choices ahead. She is trying so hard to get back to Trey, but Kyon’s level of security is top-notch. She still isn’t someone who will back down from a fight. She does what she thinks is right at the time.

Is it bad that I want more of these characters? I miss them already. But I was happy with how everything wrapped up.
