Mystwalker, Book 4
Synopsis: WHY WHISTLE IN THE DARK…
There are very few days off when you’re on an epic quest. Believe me, I know. I’m Hedi Peacock—one half Fae, the other Were—and if being a half-breed with one foot in each world isn’t tough enough to manage, there are the four chambers of my heart to consider. The one who holds the strings? Robson Trowbridge, the Alpha of Creemore. If I had my way, he and I would be locked in a bedroom, for eternity, but a pressing family matter needs my attention. It’s true what they say: A woman’s work is never done.
WHEN YOU CAN HOWL AT THE MOON?
My twin brother is being held captive by the Old Mage in another realm. Lo and behold, as soon as Trowbridge and I arrive in Merenwyn, we’re separated in spectacular, dramatic fashion—and I’m left to figure out how to maintain the fragile balance between my Fae magic and my wolf’s blood in a realm that cries to both. Not easy, particularly when I’m keeping an iron-grip on my temper so as not to dispatch with extreme prejudice the odd wizard or smart-mouthed mutt servant who crosses my path. My mama never told me there’d be days like these, but I’m not going down without a fight…or my mate.
Review: I did not know that this was the last volume of the series before reading it and I admit that I am a little sad to leave behind the characters I’ve learned to discover and to love. But much to say right now, I think this was my favorite volume. I enjoyed all the novels in the series, but it’s true that for the others that it took me a few chapters to really get into the stories. Here, surprisingly, this has not been the case and I was carried away by the adventures of this couple from the first chapter. It must be said that both characters have plenty to do!
As I said, we find our two heroes in Merenwyn, facing many new events. Yes, because one thing is certain, they do not have the time to get bored! Even if they are together in this new world that Hedi is discovering, they will soon be separated and our heroine will find herself left alone. We discover with her how the fae and the werewolves live together (in a rather difficult way it must be said), but we also learn a little more about the Magi and of course her twin brother. New characters appear, who will attend our heroine in her mission and that we learn to discover about.
Gone to achieve a specific event, our couple will end in a story that transcends them completely. Many things are added and Trowbridge is determined to do the best to help the werewolves he had left behind him to find his mate. Hedi has evolved a lot over the novels, she knows that she is not a savior, she does not want to be one which is quite nice to see. She only wants to save her twin brother and to return quietly home with the man she loves. Unfortunately nothing is easy. It is perfectly clear that they love each other deeply, but the previous novels have changed them and it’s true that nothing is as easy as it was before. They must learn to know each other to progress.
In all cases this novel was a very good conclusion, a very good story and I was glad to have the chance to follow our hero until the end to see how it was resolved.
