The Master of Light struggling to find his place …
The alluring Fire witchling who holds the key to helping him …
Darkness looms over the school for witchlings where the Master of Light, Beck, races to control his magic so he can protect the innocent. He struggles to balance his duty with his broken heart and to understand how to move on from what he considers his ultimate failure: his inability to save the woman he loved.
Morgan is on the run – for a good cause. The soul stone she carries could kill Beck and everyone else she cares about, if she’s caught by the Dark witchlings pursuing her. Neither Light nor Dark, she begins to think she’ll spend her life in the shadows, undeserving of Beck’s love and alone with her secret.
When the paths of Beck and Morgan collide again, there isn’t time for doubt or fear. They must work together to tackle the Dark soul that wants them both dead. To do so, there can be no more secrets between them.
Without Trust, Love and Light, the witchlings will perish.
- Morgan is beautifully scarred but not broken. She’s got a golden soul, full of heart and love that she’s scared to share because of her past. Morgan is headstrong, determined, a fiery little minx that will latch on to your heart and have you cheering her on. It’s heartbreaking the extent of the damage her past wrecked on her soul. Her memories trigger, her trauma is harsh and dark and it hurts to see someone so strong cower in fear. Morgan fights with extreme courage, risking everything and sacrificing her heart to spread the Light. It’s inspiring to watch Morgan grow and learn to love.
- Beck is distraught, confused, and struggles daily with his worthiness to save the Light. Beck has made several mistakes that have altered his life dramatically and he doesn’t know how to live with the consequences, only that he must. Weighed down by responsibility and loss, Beck wavers in his confidence but overcomes his insecurity when everything is at stake. Beck becomes a man in this story and more importantly, he learns to harness the Light with trust and heart.
- Beck and Morgan are fire. Raw, hot passion. Off the charts chemistry. Morgan and Beck complete each other. Total opposites they push and pull, daring each other to be better, to grow, and to lay everything on the line for the fate of the world. Together they are invincible.
- Noah and Biji. I smell another book. Seriously. I adore Noah and Biji together and they both deserve a happy ending. She’s feisty, he has a big, compassionate heart and a side of bad boy. I can already imagine the heat between them. Reading their small but potent interactions was heartwarming and blissful, you can feel the chemistry rolling off the pages.
- The final battle. The anticipation built into a chaotic mess of evil and sinister intention. It’s graphic, dramatic, and bold. The screams of pain, the leaching shadows, the anger in the air, everything equals one epic finale.
- What should have been big, climactic explosions of emotional turmoil at the deaths of two horrendous villains were brief, summarized, and even glossed over. Morgan had so much animosity and trauma towards her dark past that this showdown should have figured prominently so that Morgan could heal and find closure; unfortunately this scene was a bit of a letdown.
- Characters were introduced that had been mentioned in previous books but hadn’t had a large role. Their scenes were brief and unexplored, especially Morgan’s mother. Her personality, her inner demons were hinted at but fizzled out and never came back to the storyline.
- Decker and Summer were somewhat absent. Their scenes were short and lacked their normal vivaciousness. I found myself seriously missing their spirited personalities and interactions.
