Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance…
In the final instalment of The Tale of Lunarmorte, Caia is caught between the most powerful beings in her world, desperate to use her for their own means. Struggling to find her purpose, Caia’s time runs out when tragedy strikes close to home. Now she must decide if she will join the extremists she was trying to destroy… or bring them all down on her own terms…
Caia wakes up in the presence of Reuben and the regent of the Midnight Coven, Nikolai. Reuben has kidnapped her! But why? Isn’t he her ally? Why would he bring her to the enemy? It turns out that Reuben wants to end this war, on his terms. He explains how the war started, why it continued and how to end the war. It seems that a prophet predicted that when seven people, descendants of the first people who pledged themselves to the Midnight or Daylight coven, are killed at the same time, with the same method, the trace will be destroyed. Without the trace it will be a lot easier to end the war. Reuben thinks that Caia is the one who will be able to do this and he kidnapped her, to make her understand this. Caia is very surprised! She thought that the war would end when she became the head of the two covens, but it seems there’s still a long road ahead…
Caia agrees to think about it, although she is very reluctant to the idea. She doesn’t want to kill an innocent! Reuben knows he can’t force her decision and takes her back to the pack. When they arrive, they discover that Marita took Lucien, Ryder and the kids to the Center. She plans to execute Lucien and Ryder and use the kids as experiments! Caia is furious! She’ll go to the Center and free everyone! How dare Marita do that! Her decision starts the end of the endless war between Midnight and Daylight. However there are still difficult choices to make and unexpected setbacks to face. Will Caia be able to save everyone and win this war?
What a lovely end to this great series! After reading the second book I immediately started the last one in this captivating series. I was really glad that I didn’t have to wait a couple of months till it came out. I’ve experienced a lot with this book, I’ve laughed, but also cried (although the crying was mostly because of clogged tear ducts due to a cold 😉 ). It’s such a touching book!
Caia rocked, again! Despite all the setbacks, she faced everything head on, of course with the help of her increasing circle of friends. It was interesting to finally know why the war started, although I wouldn’t have dreamed that it was because of one women. Wich reminded me a lot of Troy, especially with all the names that were used 😉
Lucien really has trust issues. After everything that he and Caia have been through, shouldn’t he trust her a little by now? Nooo, of course not! I really could strangle him now and then. Besides his trust issues he also seems to be a bit blind when it comes to women who like him, especially if it’s an ex. Therefore no sympathy for him in this book: his actions have hurt Caia,once again. I really admire her for always forgiving him, of course after she ignores him for a while 😉
I found it less exciting to read about Jeaden. After a couple of difficult events, she completely succumbs to her hatred. Completely understandable, given what happened, but to involve others? I really couldn’t stand her when she shuns Ryder, who loves her and had to cope with it some difficulties. Fortunately he sees what she’s doing and helps her. Thank god for his insight in the female mind, why doesn’t Lucien have this?
Okay enough with the complaining, apart from these minor annoyances the story was great, therefore 4 hearts. A great ending for a great series! Although I’m glad that the ending hinted at another sequel, in the form of a spin-off series! I’ll look forward to another dive in this exciting world. Unfortunately I have to wait till next year 😦
