So, this week begins with quite a bang. The gang is exploring in a cave where there are scorpions, and y’all, I hate scorpions. Mara gets stung and so, Elisa and Storm have to work together to save her.

THEN! They leave and come back and Cosme is there. She wants help because she’s under attack and it is way different from leading a desert rebellion, but Cosme is awesome and of course she can handle her business, she just needs a bit of help.

Next up is a cameo appearance from Alodia, Elisa’s sister whom we barely see in this book. Alodia has news, their father has died. This has been kept from Elisa so that she can do her job and fulfill the godstone’s prophecy.

Then Elisa works out peace with the Deciregus because she is sick of war and death and fighting as are they.

AND THEN OMG YOU GUYS THE BEST PART OF THE SERIES. The ADULT content. WHOOOO. Hector and Elisa FINALLY finally FINALLY get it on and it’s awkward and magical and perfect. They may need a bigger bed.

From there, to cement the peace, after Hector and Elisa have sexytime, they come out and decide that Alodia should marry Storm. Elisa apologizes to Storm, but he’s quite taken with Alodia and can you even blame him? NO YOU CANNOT.

Next, Elisa finds out that Rosario is safe with Father Nicandro through the use of Red who does a little recon. There’s not as much Rosario in this book. That’s okay.

Elisa has a plan to end the in-fighting that seems to be plaguing Joya D’Arena. And so, she carries the plan out. There is a bit of a scuffle, Ximena shows up and promptly dies for Elisa. She’s okay with it because she has been ordained for it.

Then pretty much the end comes and Elisa ponders about how she loves Hector and how being with him saves a nation. She also decides there’s much work to be done in her nation and that her godstone should be a necklace and the book ends and it’s wonderful and awesome and what a great, optimistic note to end the series on.

About Rae Carson:

Rae Carson Info:

I write books about teens who must do brave things. I’m originally from California, but I now live in Arizona with my husband, who is the smartest and therefore sexiest man I know. My books tend to contain lots of adventure, a little magic and romance, and smart girls who make (mostly) smart choices. I especially love to write about questions I don’t know the answers to.
