Two dynasties clash for power. Only one empire can emerge.

In a time now legend, a sacred vow united the Farværdig and the Tuatha Dé Danann. One race born of fire, the other risen from nature. Together, they enjoyed centuries of peace and prosperity, under the protective blanket of this hallowed oath.

But when war came to the doorstep of the Tuatha, the Farværdig turned their backs. Expelled from their lands, those Tuatha who were not extinguished went into hiding, later re-emerging in secret as the Quinlans. The broken vow took its toll on the Farværdig, dividing the race into two factions: those willing to fall to heel of new restrictive laws, and rebels determined to restore the peaceful values of their kind.

In the midst of years of strife that follows, a Prophecy emerged, promising hope. Unite the races once more, and right the ancient wrong.

As the shadows of age and myth are exposed, the Deschanels find themselves deeply enmeshed in this war. Their bloodline and futures closely intertwined with both races, each member of the family must uncover their own vital role in fulfilling the Prophecy or risk decimation.

At last the tell all book I have been long since waiting for! With 700+ pages of detailed back stories for all our beloved characters in The house of Crimson Clover series. This is by far the best book yet to come from this series! As only Sarah Cradit could, she one ups herself AGAIN! Delivering a roller coaster ride of suspense, mystery, intrigue, love, despair, action and so much more!

Not only to we get back to Ana and Finn with their whole storyline (one of my favs by the way), but we also get to touch base with every character in this series. Also getting back to Amelia and Jacob (Love them!) as well!! Yay!! I honestly do not want to say anything else because I whole heartedly want you to read this book! The entire series actially!! I am THAT passionate about it!! With an amazing backstory and captivating writing, Sarah Cradit submerges all the stories within this series thus far together perfectly. She leaves you absolutely breathless in this edge of your seat page turner.

For fans of this series let me just say… YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!! For those new comers I will simply say this… This book may look overwhelming due to its size, but it is well worth the read. As is the entire series. This book is not a stand alone and you will in fact need to read the entire series in order to fully get the out of body experience that is this unique and amazing story! I highly recommend this book! Put it on your must read list like RIGHT NOW!! 5 STARS!! 10 if that was an option!!
