The Guardians of Eternity are facing a final battle to save their world—but battles of the heart may be the most difficult to fight… Cyn, the vampire clan chief of Ireland, is an unabashed hedonist whose beauty is surpassed only by his insatiable appetite for pleasure. It’s no wonder he’s furious when he’s transported from the magical land of the pureblooded feys to his desolate private lair—only to have his very existence thrown into a chaos that even he cannot charm his way out of… Most women may be all but powerless against Cyn, but Fallon, a sharp-witted fairy princess, is less than beguiled by the silver-tongued vampire. She’s a serious soul with no time for the sort of games he plays—especially when they learn that someone is trying to close the veil that separates the dimensions. But seduction may prove the most powerful force of all, as attraction ignites between the unlikely pair even as worlds are colliding around them…

I really enjoyed the final book in the series.  This was so good, action packed, witty conversations and some sweet sexy times.  I do have a few things I'm not a fan off. First off, I didn't like the demon thing that every character keeps calling the Fae, as a huge history and mythology fan, that's the only thing about this series that I hate, Christianity has hell and demons, but the Pagans don't have hell or demons.  It's not that cut and dry and I really found that part annoying but beyond that?? I really enjoyed the series, and I'm loving the way it ended.  I'm kinda hoping we get like a novella that allows us to the see everyone and how they are doing.

This was very good, I loved how the characters were portrayed Cyn is pretty funny, and very real about his past, he doesn't hide it, he's not ashamed of it, but at the same time he doesn't want others to use it against him to make his love interest scared of him.  I loved that his friends all knew what was happening before he figured it out, but once he did he was 100% behind it and didn't act like a 'typical alpha male i.e seen a man slut who wants the woman to wait until he figures his shyt out" nope he was way better than that and I loved him for it.

Fallon is an amazing character to read, she was a sheltered woman who wanted more from life but felt she couldn't get it without hurting others. I loved that as a character her end goal wasn't to just do whatever no matter who she hurt, she really did what was best for her and was stronger than she thought but also a whole lot wiser and truly was a princess.  Her people mattered to her.I loved that even though so many people didn't credit her with brains or brawn she was still a brave woman, and even though she wasn't the toughest person in the room in her own way she was a great hero.  I really loved her and the way she refused to be bullied by Cyn when they first must work together.

The villain in this story was such an idiot but at the same time a very good villain he didn't make it easy for them to catch him or stop him and I liked that they had to work for it.  He had a bit of depth to him as well and that made the story flow even faster because you saw what he was doing and knew things were coming to a head and that made me keep reading because I wanted to see how they would be resolved.

I loved the ending, especially the glimpses of past characters.  I can't tell you how much I love the Gargoyle and loved how Alexandra circled the story back around to the original men and allowed us to get the epilogue and know that for now the world is still spinning.  There are a few loose ends I would love to see addressed especially from Cyn's clan, and I wanted to see more from the second love story that formed in this one, how did they work it out??

All in all a wonderful conclusion to the series and I can't wait to see what Alexandra has for us next.
Happy Reading
