Nothing burns as bright as the flames of the refiner’s fire. Moments after hearing the Council sentence her enemy to life imprisonment for attempted murder and illegal use of magic, Darcy is whisked away by the Fates—accused of tampering with destiny. The cherished dream she shared with Mason has been called into question, placing doubt about whether they are actually true mates. To resolve it, a price must be paid—the Heart or Death—a grueling series of tests designed to reveal a person’s worth.
The stakes are high and Darcy finds herself facing the unknown in conditions that leave her more vulnerable than she’s ever been. Separated from Mason and her Pack, with Devlin as her only companion, she is pushed to her very limits. She must succeed—or lose everything.
Will she crumble under the pressure or emerge stronger for testing fate?
This book sent my emotions into a major tailspin. It totally tested my sanity. I laughed out loud, I cried, I yelled at characters and I even yelled at the author at one point. You name the emotion, any emotion, it hit me at one point during this book and no doubt straight after a total opposite emotion hit me. Belinda Boring is the Queen of Cliffhangers. This woman is gonna be the death of me one of these days. If you haven't read the two previous books in the series The Mystic Wolves and Forget Me Not start there. This series is a must read.
