  2. This is the third book in L.J McDonald s Battle Sylph series and, while I generally liked the first two, I really didn t care for this one at all The first two were pretty entertaining and the world building was original and creative In this third book, McDonald advances the timeline by six years and instead of a new hero and heroine, this book revolves around life in Sylph Valley under Queen Solie and catching us up with the changes that have occurred Generally, I like that kind of thing I This is the third book in L.J McDonald s Battle Sylph series and, while I generally liked the first two, I really didn t care for this one at all The first two were pretty entertaining and the world building was original and creative In this third book, McDonald advances the timeline by six years and instead of a new hero and heroine, this book revolves around life in Sylph Valley under Queen Solie and catching us up with the changes that have occurred Generally, I like that kind of thing It s usually f...

  3. Wow This book had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning to the very last page It is somewhat of a departure from the previous installments in the series Each of the first two books focused on the love story of an individual couple with the backdrop of the rich complicated world the author has created But not this book This book features all of the characters we already know and have come to care for, without a central love story It feels a little different, but I still loved it Wow This book had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning to the very last page It is somewhat of a departure from the previous installments in the series Each of the first two books focused on the love story of an individual couple with the backdrop of the rich complicated world the author has created But not this book This book features all of the characters we already know and have come to care for, without a central love story It feels a little different, but I still loved it.The beginning of the story slightly overlaps with the end of The Shattered Sylph Leon, Ril and Lizzie have not yet returned t...
