Two opponents must confront the cause of their obsessive fury in the latest Novel of the Elder Races…
As a harpy, Sentinel Aryal is accustomed to dealing with hate, but Sentinel Quentin Caeravorn manages to inspire in her a burning ire unlike anything she’s ever known. Aryal believes the new Sentinel to be a criminal, and vows to take him out as soon as the opportunity arises. But the harpy’s incessant wrath has pushed Quentin to the limit, and forces him to make a deadly vow of his own.
To put an end to the conflict, Dragos, Lord of the Wyr, sends them on a reconnaissance mission to the Elven land of Numenlaur. Forced to work together, Aryal and Quentin’s mutual antagonism escalates. Each fight draws forth more passion—culminating in an explosively sexual confrontation. But when their quest reveals real danger, Aryal and Quentin must resolve their differences in ways beyond the physical, before the entire Wyr is threatened.

Okay, so this was not one of my favorite books out of this series. But, it was good. For me, I felt like this book was trying to jump on the BDSM train... Which for me wasn't necessary.
I enjoyed getting to know Aryal better. In the previous books, she really just seemed to be a pain in the ass harpy (which she is)... But in this book, it proved that she was so much more. She is wild, free, and wonderfully loyal. I loved that about her.
Quintin was a character that we only got a glimpse of in previous books, but now we really get to know him. The fact that he was kind of an amoral character that has turned over a new leaf. That does make him appealing. A bad boy turned good guy is always appealing.
Galya could have potentially been an amazing good guy, but because her grief lead her to murder, it was inevitable that she was the bad guy. I hated what she did to the Wyr-wolves. And all to just save her mate. And because she went about it in the wrong way, she ended up loosing him, and loosing her own life.
I loved the end of this book. It was perfect. Enemies became friends and lovers; loyalty was earned; And conflicts were ended.
Overall, this was a good book. Definitely recommend it if you have read the other books in this series.
