This is the third book in Tiffany Roberts’s Isle of the Forgotten Series. It is written in third person the Gaelin (an angel) and Mayra’s (a demon) POV primarily, with some from Isobel Hargaves’s POV.
SPOILER ALERT: There may be some spoilers regarding the prior books in this series.
Mayra and her twin brother Marcus have just been exiled to the Isle of the Forgotten, a prison island with no escape. Gaelin has been on the island for a couple hundred years waiting. He started as a prison, but was recently freed, so he could escape. He knows that his mate will arrive sometime. Well, the time is now, and that person is Mayra.
Gaelin has fought demons for thousands of years. The fact that he is now mated to a demon he finds to be one of the cruelest of ironies. He now has to debate with himself whether or not he even wants to claim her.
In the mean time, Mayra and Marcus are slaves to a Necromancer, Nahir, who will stop at nothing to get them back. They get to experience their first chance at freedom since they were children, even if they are on a prison island. Nahir cannot control. But they know he’s coming for them. First Gaelin popping into their lives, then the threat of Nahir makes the twins time very chaotic and full of fear.
First of all, the cover for this book is fantastic! Absolutely gorgeous!
In other news, I found this book somewhat disappointing. The emotions where there, however there were a lot of parts where I was just like, that was stupid. The relationship forming between Gaelin and Mayra is pretty good. Some parts I feel like Mayra deserved better, but it was ok. Some of the decisions made regarding their actions through the course of the book were dumb to me. Maybe it was just to get the plot to go where it needed to go, but I didn’t care for it. So I honestly have some very mixed feeling about this book.
