Cast in Faefire by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Man, I'm glad things appear to have taken a pretty spectacular turn in this book. Marion was really starting to bother me with her lovestruck teenager vibe. On top of that - Seth is awesome! Why can't he ever catch a break? This book shows a lot of sacrifice, even more bloodshed, and everyone's true colors.
We begin this book with Marion and Konig still planning their wedding (or rather, Konig's mom and secret mistress are planning it). For someone who supposedly loves Konig, she sure spends a lot of time not knowing what she wants for this magical wedding. It hurt lots and lots to watch this happen while the reader knows all the horrible things that are going on behind her back. I also suspect that the memories Marion lost contain a not so pretty history between the two of them.
On top of that - Seth! They clearly love each other, but after the little vampirey meltdown he had, he is obviously in self punishment mode at the start. I get that he also has some literal wounds to heal and is trying to hide his big reveal from the last book, but I wish these two would just accept it and move on. Fate (or the gods?) seem to have it out for these two star-crossed lovers, though. You never get a really happy ending in this series, but I'm still hoping for one at the end. Maybe Seth will finally get something that is exclusively for him and not some other guy. I hate watching him play 2nd best when he is clearly the guy who deserves his happily ever after.
