From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Thea Harrison comes the final story in her spellbinding Moonshadow trilogy…
King Oberon reigned over his Dark Court in Lyonesse for centuries, until an assassination attempt laid him low. Now he lies unconscious in his snow-bound palace, while his Power battles the enchantment that threatens to end his life.
A skilled trauma surgeon and magic-user, Dr. Kathryn Shaw reigns at the top of her profession in New York. Then comes a challenge she can't resist—she is asked to cure the uncureable. Just getting close enough to try healing Oberon is a dangerous proposition. When she does reach him, he awakens too soon.
Roused from darkness by Kathryn's presence, Oberon confronts the beautiful stranger who claims she wants to save his life. But the enchantment has frozen his emotions. How can he learn to trust her when he can't feel anything?
Oberon's desire is icy, devoid of all tenderness. Not only must Kathryn match wits with him, she must also fight her reaction to his touch, because there is so much more at stake than her own endangered heart.
For the Dark Court faces its most deadly peril yet. Its ancient enemy Isabeau, Queen of the Light Court, is obsessed with its annihilation, and Oberon must be brought to remember his loyalty and affection for his people.
Because if he won't fight for them, Lyonesse itself may very well be destroyed…
Loved reading this book! Oberon being in the state he's been in has been a big part of this series. And Kathryn's been a part of the series basically since the beginning, I think. Watching these two was so fantastic, they were both strong willed and their clashes were legendary!
We've seen Oberon once or twice. He was in the last book of the original series, at least briefly. And that he got hit with something Isabeau sent to him via Morgan, that's why he's been stasis, basically, and the conflict between his course and the Light Court, has been the main plot of this series. So he's pretty important, even while not actively doing anything for the first two books. He has a very active role in this book!
I really enjoyed Kathryn and Oberon, they with both intelligent and thought highly of their opinions, even when, or especially, when they clashed with the other. That his emotions were blocked by what she was trying to heal him from was an added complication.
That end battle was pretty spectacular! The Dark Court has faced a lot of hardship in this war, and just as they're starting to come home, they're invaded. Which really sucks, but Oberon, Puck and Kathryn do a lot of damage for just 3 people!
Loved reading this book, it was such a great read, and I enjoyed it so much! I would love to have more of this world!
