From author Thea Harrison comes the latest story in the New York Times bestselling Moonshadow trilogy….
Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.
When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.
One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.
Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.
But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge…
The tale that told everything came down to just one thing. I fell in love, he thought, and smiled. It was a miracle, and despite everything he had been through, he felt blessed with having been given such a fortune.
Morgan Le Fae one of the most powerful sorcerer’s in Avalon. Of earth magic and spells. Is most certainly not the man he used to be.
Isabeau the Queen of the Light Fae Court trapped Morgan a very long time ago. The Queen used Azreal’s Athame to gain his unwilling allegiance. A geas has kept him bound to a woman he despises and hates. To do what she commands. He can’t do anything to stop it. But wording is always the key. He can skirt them but not defy them. The tide of the war has shifted and it is not in her favor. But the Queen makes a mistake.
“What use are you like this? Get out of my sight. I don’t want to see you again until you’re fully healed.”
Morgan is a very patient man. And so, he has his freedom for while at least. He escapes to figure out how to escape his entrapment. He lands in Glasgow.
Sidonie Martel one of the best music players in the world. Sid has no spark of magic at all which makes things difficult for her. A wealth of favors by the Djinn. Flowing with music she becomes the music.
Robyn the puck is up to no good and drags Sidonie into the mess. The Puck knows nothing but he is about to learn what he cannot see. There is no reasoning with the Puck. Kidnapped and given to the Isabeau, Sid’s nightmare begins. Her future uncertain. Never to play music again. When all is lost a man comes to help her
Morgan feels manipulated into helping Sid. But things start to change. They become close. He has wandered alone for a very long time but with Sid he has someone at his side.
I loved Morgan. He is a fantastic Hero and I felt for him and his entrapment and his loss of free will. That is main goal was always to break it.
Sid is also a totally kickarse female. She plays on her strengths where others only see weaknesses. She gets herself out of many an awkward situation. She is sly and cunning. Two attributes I like in a heroine.
This could have gone terribly wrong. Why do you ask? Well I requested the book before I read the blurb. I read the blurb and it is with Morgan Le Fae. Shocked I didn’t know how that was going to be pulled off after what I saw of him in the first book.
The plot is brilliant so unique and creative. The author has added layer upon layer of plot that there is no way that you can be bored with this book. I need more of this series. I know that Lionheart is next but I don’t know who it is about. Please hurry up Ms. Harrison.
