As the solstice looms and the battle heats up, Dranir Judah Ansara gathers his forces, intending to wipe every Raintree from the face of the land. Including Mercy, whom he's claimed as his to kill. Then he comes face-to-face with her -- and with her daughter, Eve. Will Mercy's closely guarded secret change not only the outcome of the battle -- but also Judah's own bitter heart?« less
I did not like this book. I enjoyed the first two books of the series but the character of Mercy seemed to be too naive for words. I could not believe that she waited through all of what was going on, and still did not contact her family and let them know what was going on. Instead being so caught up in her feelings that nothing else mattered.
#19 in the Silhouette Nocturne series, I have found this book to be a very fasinating read. I didn't suspect the ending, it was great. Each member has a special gift, this one is a guardian and healer for her people. This is a great trilogy.
