Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.
When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.
One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.
Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge… FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Spellbinder is the story of Morgan Le Fae and in this story, he is a powerful sorcerer and a hound/werewolf who belongs to the evil light queen Isabeau. We met him several stories back in the Elder Races books, I am not sure which one now. And he was the antagonist in the first Moonshadow book. Yet not all as it appears in the previous books and we learn that Morgan is caught under a compulsion to do Isabeau’s bidding. On a chance slip of an order a shot at freedom present itself. In that time he learns of Sidonie and her beautiful music. Sidonie is a renowned violinist and is on a European tour. A powerful enemy of Morgan realizes his fascination and kidnaps Sidonie and delivers her to the queen. Now Morgan must go back to save this beautifully talented creature from the evil that is Isabeau. Together Sidonie and Morgan find solace in each other as they work to free Morgan of his long standing chains. All the while keeping Sidonie alive and whole. I love this world that Harrison has built, it is still new and fresh and every time I start a new story I can’t wait to devour it; Yet I almost don’t want to finish because then it’s over and I left waiting for the next one. I am giving Spellbinder: Moonshadow, Book 2, 5 Boundless Stars, I loved it.
