USA Today bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, scorches the pages with her fourth installment of The Cold Mark Saga, where secrets are revealed and heinous acts jump to life...
Braita Valorn has found herself in another precarious situation. A battle rages on the shores of Joyal and the Mian are shaking the sand with their war cries. Trapped below ground inside the President's bunker, Braita isn't even safe.
The Mian won't stop. They'll never give up the fight until they are satisfied.
When steel doors are blown and gunfire erupts, Human blood floods the ground.
Judgments are made, an archaic stand within Mian laws, and Braita finds herself charged with treason. But never one to sit during a battle, she risks her last chance of release on one set of Plumas. Will Braita find herself in more trouble of her own making or will she rise past atrocity to obtain her freedom?
I felt somewhat conflicted with this installment, on one hand, I was happy with the story moving forward, on the other hand I was left with so many more questions. And just like previous installments of the series, a lot of random things happened in this one as well, where they seem to come out of nowhere. I am really curious how the next and last installment would tight up all the loose end.
I didn’t particularly liked Braita’s Souls, and after this installment, I think I really despise them. It would seem to me their personalities have really changed, or maybe we never really know what they were like from the beginning.
I still enjoyed Braita’s interactions with Phila and Killeg, and I really hope she would get to choose the ones she want in the end. The one that actually respects and were always honest with her. I would hate to see Braita ended up with her current, awful “Souls”.
Happy Reading!! XO
