I received this book for review from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Steal the salt. Bind the grimoire. Escape the male.
When an exchange of stolen goods in the Feriana marketplace turns sour, Isabeau stumbles from the encounter bruised and laden with new orders to complete an even larger heist. With her child’s life at stake, there’s no room for error—or allies.
Armed with a lethal book of spells, she strikes a dangerous bargain with Roland Bernhard. Steal a shipment of salt from the Feriana colony, and she’ll have her freedom—and her daughter. It’s all she’s ever wanted. At least it was…until she runs into Dillon Preston.
Dillon is out of commission after a mine explosion, and itching for a distraction. He gets it when the female who saved his leg arrives at the colony with nothing but flimsy excuses and even flimsier attire. She’s after something, but is it him—or the salt?
Trapped in a desperate bid to gain true freedom, Isabeau is willing to sacrifice her life for her daughter’s, but Dillon has other plans. He wants a package deal, and he’s not willing to lose either female, even if it means the future king of Sere’s head will roll.
Warning: This title contains a heroine desperate to save her daughter and a hero determined to make them a family. It also includes wings, horns and other assorted appendages.
Thoughts: I thoroughly enjoyed Isabeau & Dillion's story. It's one of desperation, sacrifice and a heated passion that burns bright. I did find myself once again frustrated with the heroine, but it's a factor that makes her such an interesting character. Every time I read a Daughters of Askara book, I'm always surprised. It's a magical world that is both a fantasy world and modern day Earth. Ms. Edwards does an excellent job of mixing the two. Eversworn is a thrilling read filled with intrigue, adventure and romance. Fantasy lovers beware this series can be addicting.
Score: 4 Stars
