The homecoming celebration held in honor of Princess Faedrah is fraught with perilous frustration. Her nightmares have returned thricefold and, to her horror, a horrendous blight has spread like a plague throughout the kingdom. Compounding her worries, Rhys’ arrival in her world has been welcomed with the exact horror-filled reaction she expected. Her beloved has been cast into the dungeons, and no amount of arguing with the king and queen will prove he’s her fated love.
Magical powers were supposed to be a gift, or so Rhys McEleod had always believed. Too bad the second he landed in Faedrah’s world the legacy he inherited slammed into his body like a weight. He’s got zero control and his constant visions of Faedrah fighting an evil entity aren’t helping. At least her parents made the right decision and stuck him away someplace safe. Until he can figure out his next move, prove himself an ally and uncover the clues to stopping Faedrah’s nightmares, he’s got no choice but to wait…and learn exactly what he’s become.

These books can no longer be bought separately but if you are interested you can purchase them as a single book using the amazon link above.

Thank you to HarperImpulse for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I read parts 1 and 2 of this series in 2015 but I have only just managed to read part 3. As it has been such a long time I probably should have re-read them as I was struggling to remember what happened in the other 2 books.

In this book, I really felt for Faedrah and Rhys. Faedrah cannot sleep without terrible nightmares. The poor girl goes days without sleep because every time she closes her eyes she is tortured. If I do not get enough sleep I am a real grump so I can only imagine how Faedrah felt. Especially when everyone was ignoring her.

Rhys also had to endure Faedrah’s nightmares through their connection but not only that he was locked in a cell through the whole thing. He couldn’t even help her! I fell in love with Rhys all over again in this book. He is defiant in his mission to protect her.

This was a great addition to the series and I will definitely be finishing the final book before the end of the year.

About A.J Nuest

I am a multi-published, award-winning author who lives in the middle of a cornfield in NW Indiana. My loving husband, two beautiful children and a bevy of spoiled pets have agreed to stay and, in exchange for three rations per day and laundry service, tolerate my lunacy. While I spend most days happily ensconced in crafting romance across a multitude of genres, an underground coup has been percolating. The dogs just informed me the cat is secretly vying for dictatorship.
