This was an emotional episode, one which hooked me so deeply I felt part of the story itself. I was anxious to discover Auren’s fate since we were left on a cliff hanger and in the middle of a storm no less. Like any series, where the characters are familiar, I couldn’t wait to spend time with them again. The opening chapter was action packed and fraught with tension.
The moment Auren met Etan I knew their relationship would be significant. The obstacles in their way were heartbreaking. Auren has already been through so much, so it felt particularly unfair she was unable to explore this new connection.
Her relationship with Kado is already strained, and the conflicts were dealt with beautifully. I was pulled in a dozen different directions and put through an emotional ringer! I like her more with every episode and loved that she stood up for herself.
I also really enjoyed learning more about the shadow stalkers and their customs. As the story unfolds it drags you deeper and deeper. The ending was explosive, as always, and I cannot wait to find out where the journey takes me next.
