Our Thread without invited hide spoiler This was an unusual fantasy story in a lot of ways starting with Halina She s a capable respected military commander and warrior and openly not uite aggressively sexual Pairing her up against and later with Gethen a wizard of ferocious and disreputable reputation made for an interesting tension as they o back and forth between a lot of different relationship axes attraction power family politics trustIndeed most of the draw of the story at least for me was the two main characters and their interactions Which is Virgin Widow good because the setting is a bit sparse which kind of surprised me Youet Wife in Exchange glimpses of different cultures and people and lands and nexuses of power and I can t help feeling like the magic could be interesting if we knew anything concrete about it Butlimpses is mostly all we The Eternal Ice (Magic: The Gathering: Ice Age Cycle, getSo it s aood thing the plot is decent and the threat had weight And that Pierce keeps the story moving along at a Night And Day good clip There were some mild bumps and a few expectations that tripped me up like the marked coin that made me expect a specific clumsy twist only to allay that expectation and then have a milder form show up after all but for the most part I was simply enjoying myself and the story as it unfoldedSo this is a weak four star read because of interesting characters and someood setting dynamics despite being a bit light weight that dipped a bit sometimes but managed to end strong and fulfill my expectations for the things I cared about mainly Gethen and Halina becoming a coupleteamA note about Steamy I actually expected sex than there was Tennessee Takedown / Ravens Hollow giving how nearly aggressive Halina is Weot a single explicit sex scene with some strong flirting and such So the lower end of my steam tolerance I do wish Pierce had addressed how it is a woman could be so promiscuous in a fantasy mostly low magic WORLD WITHOUT FEAR OF UNWANTED PREGNANCY ANDOR DISEASE IT without fear of unwanted pregnancy andor disease It t have taken much than a hand wavy herb or talisman or something Also view spoilerI m not a big fan of the sex solves things mechanic and this was the enhanced version where it actually completes Gethen s needed magical transformation I m The Cowboy Takes a Bride (The Bridal Bid glad Pierce also made the relationship work solidly without making that magical bit be any important than it was hide spoiler Spoilers most likelyGot this one for99 and what a delightful surprise it was to find howood this book wasThe writing is technically very ood LITTLE TO NO EDITING ISSUES WELL DEVELOPED CHARACTERS AND to no editing issues Well developed characters and characters as well as an antagoniost that is not just purely evil but has a story behind them BravoI would definately recommend this book to my friends This author s writing is certainly in league with Grace Draven as fantasy oes unfortunately she lacks Draven s romantic touchThe author is adept at world building and had logic and reason behind the magic and spell work she Shotgun Wedding (Silhouette Yours Truly, gave to the mages In short it was magical yet believableThis is not a cliffhanger there is an end a HEA thankoodness but it does end so one need not continue with the series but I certainly plan toA brief summaryThere is a war brewing between two lands The feud between these once allied Kings started over a really simple and ridiculous reason Little did either of the Kings realize that it was not just a war over trading salt but a war that was instigated by a Rime Witch who was released from her hold in the Void Gethen is a shadow mage whose powers are fading as he makes the transition from shadow mage to sun mage He has been the one person who s sole responsibility has been to keep the wraiths and Rime witch contained in the void As his magic weakens his protective wards are as well Unfortunately at the same time the Rime witch has been released On top of that his brother Zelal is threatening. Price for her aid is steep his allegiance in a war against his brother In battle or in bed she’s never met a man she considered her matchMilitess Halina is undaunted by the threat of war between her country and neighboring Besera She earned her titles by shedding blood and breaking bones She uses her body to reward soldiers who serve her loyally and to punish those who don’t And Halina’. Shadow is deepest in the sunTrue to its billing this is a sword and sorcery fantasy wrapped around a romance In this case the sword is wielded by Militess Halina the illegitimate daughter of a king who is sent to Shadow Mage Gethen s holding to secure his allegiance and assistance against aggression orchestrated by his brother the king of neighboring Besera Unbeknownst to the lady knight the kings and the killing winter are just puppets on a string held by a Life Changing Smiles growing horror in the Void which is barely being contained by Gethen She arrives on the eave of his deepest struggles with this emerging dark magic and the wily mage strikes a bargain with the woman warrior to watch his back while he battles the entity He admired her just a little bit than he wanted to kill her The woman had a steel spine and she d bend uite far before she broke The trick would be easing off before she snapped and stuck a knife in himLocked together by a blizzard in Gethen s half destroyed castle the suspicious Halina and the scoffing Gethen hammer out the details of their accord With just two retainers the place is isolated and it eventually becomes clear to Halina that the mage wasn t lying about his inability to contain the dark spirit in the Void As the two battle magical manifestations with physical deadly intent they feel a burgeoning attraction As aeneral in her father s army she is attracted to the powerful mage who has the poise of a king and the control of a soldier In turn he is ratified and amazed at the bravery and fearlessness of this woman who doesn t begin to know how to submit to a foe even when coughing up blood My one criticism of this book is that the extended magical theatrics are often without reason The story between Gethen and Halina is one of mutual respect maturing into love and I felt it needed to be matched by a personal or political purpose for the dark entity to manifest at that particular time and place Rather it is like Sauron expanding the doom of Mordor Too late there is a face and mythology put in place for the entity and even then it was related to power and not person Gethen and Halina spend considerable time in self recrimination worry and eventually battle when at times all I really wanted them to do was et to a passionate clenchI think people who enjoy the works of Grace Draven will find The Shadow The Sun by Monica Enderle Pierce to be worthy of their time The romance isn t uite as deeply felt but the heroine is singularly wonderful She is unapologetic in her approach and confident in her abilities It is delightful to watch love sneak up on her 45 rounded to 5 stars 355 4 starsGood fantasy story in the Sword and Sorcery style with a bit of romance thrown in This is a new to me author and I was Only a Whisper glad to stumble across whilst digging through Mara s bookshelves looking for something newThe events of the last part of the book seemed a bit off in their timing maybe rushed but it was still a prettyood ending Really enjoyable fantasy romance that reminds me of Grace Draven s work Thanks to Mara for bringing this author to my attention I look forward to reading the next book in the series Buddy read with the MacHalo sisterhood The Shadow The Sun has all the things to make up a Copper Lake Secrets great story A storyline with magic and swords with a dusting of spooky stuff and romance But yet there was something that held it back It felt like the author was hovering around As if she wanted me to hang out and enjoy the world and reallyet to know the characters The stalling didn t do it for me The MacHalos have already started the second book I m Brooklyn's Song going to join them andive it a o I 35 I so enjoyed this fantasy with its touch of romance its heroine and the romp through lands unknown The only con is that I could not find it completely compelling For how much I liked it and I did my HEART WASN T IN MY THROAT wasn t in my throat at the worst times But I would suggest that you do read this book 34 They saved the world stars I took a amble on this book because Grace Draven mentioned as it went up on and I really liked the cover then I was intrigued by the blurb Nothing unheard of but there was just something both characters seemed so strong I hoped the author would pull it off enemies to lovers convincing magic Alternate cover edition of ASIN B01DV98SUAAmong the living or the dead he’s never needed anything from anyoneShadow Mage Gethen is a powerful necromancer keeper of the border between the living and the dead and brother to the king of Besera But with his dark powers failing and a vengeful entity attacking Gethen should be happy when a formidable lady knight appears at his ates He’s not The. ,
