REVIEWER PURCHASE PUBLISHER: K.F. Breene RELEASED: October 30, 2014 GENRE: Coming of Age, Fantasy LENGTH: 212 pages FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK
With Sasha as the proclaimed Mage of high ranking power, she can't just slip under the carpet to a peaceful existance. Instead, she must present herself to the Council, a group of white mages who reside over the magical community, governing Stefan's people. There she must prove she has what it takes to be the mage of Stefan's clan, not something easily done.
Stefan, too, has been noticed by the large faction of rulers. An alpha leader with a firm hold over his people, he has outgrown in his position, and it shows. Ties to a human mage with a vast well of power, though, has made him a target. Sasha is sought after, and those who want to harness her power will take her by force if necessary.
With Dominicous' and Toa's help, Sasha and Stefan must face the trials coming up. Proving themselves is the easy part. Getting out with their lives becomes the challenge. THREE BOUNDLESS STARS I read the first four books in this series back in 2014. When I saw that they are now on K/U I decided to try the fourth. I have read too many books in between and my memory isn’t that good to try and pick up in the middle. So I can honestly tell someone if they are starting this series don’t start here start from the beginning.
I think had I started over I would have been invested in the characters, reading it the way I did, I just wasn’t. The writing is great, and the story is fast-paced, non-stop adventure that got my blood pumping, which I enjoyed. I’m just not sure I will continue.
My advice, start from the beginning and binge, it’s much more enjoyable that way.
I' am rating The Council, Three Boundless stars because even though my memory is crap, it was still a fun, sexy, thrilling read.
