From New York Times and USA Today best-selling 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 incurable. 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…
So good, I don't want this to be the end
I am such a dummy, yes I said it, a big dummy. The adage never judge a book by its cover is the perfect example of why I am a HUGE dummy. I have loved the Moonshadow series, and I held off on buying Lionheart because I didn’t like the look of the male model on the cover. (Slaps self in the head) He reminds me of my ex-husband (shudder), and I couldn’t get past it. When I read a book, I will picture the lead character as the cover model. As you can imagine, I didn’t do that. A more mature Jason Mamoa was what I went with this time around.
Once again Harrison has surpassed my expectations and created another vivid world in her universe that is brilliant, exciting and full of wonder and magic. I loved getting lost in the story, and Sophie Eastlake’s narration made that easy.
I loved these characters. Kathryn is a smart, strong-willed, no-nonsense woman who is King Oberon perfect match. Oberon is everything a King should be and so incredibly sexy in his male alpha dominance. It gave me shivers. He is almost at a tie with Drogos for favorite character in this world.
I think Moonshadow is only going to be a trilogy and I hope I am wrong about that because I loved these characters. I hope to see more of them especially Robin; I loved him. He is mischievous and complicated. I don’t necessarily want to see him find love but I would like to see more.
I am giving Lionheart: 5 Boundless Stars, I loved it, I hope it isn’t the last.
