Dindi and Umbral have an uneasy truce, forced to work together to defeat a greater enemy: the Bone Whistler. The Bone Whistler’s scheme to sacrifice humanity and resurrect the Aelfae will culminate during an eclipse on the spring equinox…in three days.OMG! I have to say I LOVE this series!!! I’ve been drawn in since the first book and have yet to be disappointed. Since this is the 6th book in the series if you haven’t read any of them you might not want to read this one. There will be spoilers, if not for the book, then for the series itself. As for the rest of you there will probably be spoilers for book six following but it can’t be helped and I’ll try to limit them to the bare minimum.
Their fragile alliance may not withstand the terrors they face. Dindi hides as a clown, but even disguised, her dancing draws the eye of the Bone Whistler himself. She will have to defy him alone, for Umbral has his own troubles.
Finnadro, who has hunted Umbral for a year, finally catches up with him… determined to punish Umbral for all his black deeds.
Life and death, spring and autumn, human and faery, are all reeling out of balance, and these three days will determine the fate of all Faearth.
Let me start by saying that the world of Faearth that Tara Maya has created is amazing! With each book it keeps getting better and better! Seriously awesome! Every book has taken the reader to a new place in her world and each one is just as interesting as the last.
Her characters are amazing too! I have my faves, of course, but all of them are amazingly well woven into the story. While they all grow or change in some way they also all stay true to themselves, even when they have a complete life changing event. They don’t just change between books for no reason.
As for the story itself…there are soooo many parts of this book that I have been waiting for FOREVER!!! I won’t go into detail because I promised…but….let’s just say that I was right all along! *happy dance* Sorry there was something I had thought was true all along but the author story had led me to believe it wasn’t, and I’m happy I was right. Also it looks as if Dindi is finally getting within sight of her happy ending. I know that the story will eventually end and that there are quite a few more books left in it so she won’t get it any time soon, but still she is finally getting to show who she truly is.
Ok. I know this is just mainly me raving about a book without telling too much about it, but I can’t go into detail or I will just spill a whole bunch of spoilage all over. All I can say is if you haven’t started this series yet go pick up the first two books. (You have to have them both or it will just be annoying, trust me) I can’t wait for the next book I love seeing how the author has woven all her books together and where she is taking Dindi and the rest of her world.
