Why I started this book:
I’ve been enjoying the series. I can’t believe there is one left!
- How Josef procured the Heart of War.
- How Josef really melded with the Heart during this book.
- Eli's time with the Shepherdess and what makes him change his mind about being with her.
- We learn why Eli wants the outrageous bounty he requires.
- The entire Spirit War!!!
- What Eli does at the very end – I just have to say “You got served!”
- Sharp Mountain – Good thing Miranda escapes! Poor Slorn.
- Eli’s parents – what is wrong with them? Seriously.
