Story Line Overview:
All pretense is gone between Vhalla and Aldrik (FINALLY!). No one and nothing is going to stop them from being together. Vhalla with her rag tag team of warrior-adventurers vow to put an end to the evil threatening all the people of the Solaris empire.
After an unsuspected sacrificial offering, Vhalla regains her wind walker abilities. Her and Aldrik have to face some hard circumstances but together they figure out how to pull through.
Crystal monsters are threatening everyone and everything. Vhalla and Aldrik have to hack their way through the mess in order to set right the empire that has been turned upside down.
Kova didn’t dissapoint. This was a great way to end the Yarl saga. I kept finding myself wanting to know more…to read more, but alas the story must end.
Overall, I would give this novel 5 out of 5 stars. Two thumbs up!
