Author: Christine Amsden 

Blurb: Edward Scot and Victor Blackwood have despised one another for nearly a quarter of a century, but now their simmering hatred is about to erupt.

When Cassie Scot returns home from her sojourn in Pennsylvania, she finds that her family has taken a hostage. Desperate to end the fighting before someone dies, Cassie seeks help from local seer Abigail Hastings, Evan Blackwood’s grandmother. But Abigail has seen her own death, and when it comes at the hand of Cassie’s father, Victor Blackwood kills Edward Scot.

But things may not be precisely as they appear.

Evan persuades Cassie to help him learn the truth, teaming them up once again in their darkest hour. New revelations about Evan and his family make it difficult for Cassie to cling to a shield of anger, but can Evan and Cassie stop a feud that has taken on a life of its own?

    I have way too many favorite series to name, but yeah, they all usually end the way I like.

    My favorite series was the Drizz’t series if books from RA Salvatore. After reading umpteen books, I happened to catch a glance of the last page of the last book by accident. Based on the ending, I didn’t read it, yet. Let’s just say it didn’t end well…

    I loved that top ten list 🙂 I really need to read this series sometime. At least I can do a binge read when I do get to it!!

    My favourite series is the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare and yes it ended beautifully 🙂
