Determined to have Étaín, as well as the lands her family controls, Brand sets out to win her affections, but is not above invading the lands by force if she does not choose him willingly. Brand and Étaín were great together, each with their own intricate set of paranormal gifts to make things interesting. Étaín was the perfect mix of strength and innocence, and despite the horrors in her past, she had a certain unsullied freshness that was endearing. Brand's careful courtship of her was lovely and his ability to adapt his plans along the way played well with his honest approach to things, making him an easy character to like. I look forward to learning more about Brand's brothers, Nikolas and Taske, as well as Étaín's sisters, Alana and Keara, in further stories from this series!
