Evangeline and Malcolm
Malcolm finally gets his chance at love in this book.
Evangeline Walker put up a web site to display a necklace that has drough magic in order to see if there are other drought out in the world. Her site was hacked, so she went on the run. Malcolm found her and followed her to Cantoole mountain. (She hears rocks and they told her to come. )
Malcolm is ready to give in to his god but decides to tell the Evie about the mountain and Deidre first and try to save her. Along the way he started getting his feelings back.
Jason is after her and Malcolm and do is "death's. We see quite a bit more of the Dragon Kings in this book, which leads us into the next series.
The narrator is easy to follow along with.
I am so glad that I went back to read this series! I love Donna Grant's stories!

Because a train wreck is something you never want to see, but in the same breath, you cannot turn away from it. This series is so...cheap. The sex scenes are virtually the same through 75% of the series before they started to get somewhat interesting. The author has a couple terribly annoying literary quirks--she's cliche, painfully repetitive, and has a habit of using verbs in series. of. three. It's almost like she cannot decide which verb to use, so, "hey, let's use 'em all!" And yet...I continue to listen because I want to know the damn conclusion!
I never write reviews, so all these passionate frustrations would have been kept to myself, but she violated at least two of my big NO-NOs. It appears she ignores the rules of her own magical universe to either progress the story or to undo all her big mistakes. Not only that, the author also relies on consumers not to binge on the series--which is what I've done--because she tells a lie--or, if you prefer, she shamelessly changes a major plot device.
So, if you haven't consumed--read or listened to--all the books up to this point, you may not want to read the rest. SPOILERS.
[Violates her own universe.]
After the first half of the series, some of the Warriors were spirited away to the future and the majority were stuck living the 400 years in the slow lane. So...400 years of NO evil villain. They KNEW this--according to her mythology. Wasted. The couples who took the slow path could have replenished all the Mie Druids who were lost in that amount of time by not taking their potions and using the same spells used in the Quinn-Machail deal. Raise em. Train em up. Kick em out. Those progeny have babies and rinse, recycle, and repeat! Tons of Mie Druids. But oh no! You need something needless to cause drama later on.
[Shamelessly changes plot device.]
As for the lie. In this last book, the one thing that is really able to cause the most damage to the Warriors is the altered Drough blood. The characters come to the conclusion that the alteration came after the villain died and came back. But that is not true. The Warriors came in contact with the altered blood when this villain first made his appearance...a full two books before this one?
This review was submitted before I finished this book (because I simply could not keep my frustration contained).
