An elf prince on the verge of losing himself to the darkness, Vail is maddened by the forty-two centuries he was under the control of a witch and forced to war with his brother. Now, he roams Hell seeking an escape from his terrible past and the heads of all who bear magic. When demons of the Fifth Realm capture him, he sees a chance to end his existence, but when he wakes in a cell to a beautiful female, he finds not death but his only shot at salvation—his true fated mate.
Captured by the enemy of the Third Realm when the war ended, Rosalind has spent months in the cells of the Fifth Realm with her magic bound, forced to heal the new king’s demon warriors, and haunted by the lives she has taken. When she’s brought to heal an unconscious man, she discovers her only hope of escape has come in the form of her worst nightmare and the first part of a prediction that might spell her doom—a devastatingly handsome and dangerous dark elf prince.
Unwilling to fall under the control of anyone ever again, Vail must escape before the Fifth King can use him as a pawn in a deadly game of revenge, but he cannot leave without Rosalind, the woman who looks at him with dark desire in her stunning eyes and awakens a fierce hunger in his heart. A witch who drives him mad with need even as the darkness within whispers she will enslave him too.
Can Rosalind escape her fate as they embark on a journey fraught with danger and resist the temptation of her rogue elf prince? And can Vail overcome the memories that madden him in order to seize his chance for salvation and the heart of his fated female forever?
About the Author
Felicity Heaton definitely did not disappoint in this third installment of the eternal mates series... it was a bit darker, conflicting and emotional.
This is the story of our Mad Elf Prince... he finally meets his eternal mate. The bad part is that she is the very thing he hates and fears the most... a witch.
Vail was enslaved and tortured by a witch for 4000 yrs and forced to do horrible and unforgiveable acts against his own people. Even though he is now free he is still haunted and very much controlled by his past demons. He is in constant turmoil over his desire to love his mate but also his hate for her being a witch. He wants to both kill her and love her... an internal battle between dark and light. My heart went out to poor Rosalind. She was in a constant state of confusion and his behavior towards her was hurtful. I was very proud of her when she finally took a stand. They were the perfect match in the end... she was his light in the dark. And, he, in a small way, was the same for her.
This book is a roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs. Slowly watching Vail come to terms with his past and learn to open himself up to trusting and loving his kiara was no easy task.
I will admit that the internal dialogue of Vail drove me crazy at times... but, I guess that is the point... I definitely felt his conflict and it was appropriate considering his past. His character had to be so hard to write... and, I thought the author handled it beautifully.
The end is what sealed my 5 star rating. I seriously got all choked up... big tears I tell you! There is something about a tortured hero finding his HEA that has me reaching for my Kleenex! I'm a sucker for these characters... gets me every time! His character reminds me of Zsadist in the BDB series... yep, cried like a baby when he found his HEA too.
Anyway... LOVE this series... can't wait for more!
