has finally killed his father the man who tortured him from the day he was born but memories of his time spent at his old home and the last words spoken to him by his dying father haunt him awake and asleep. It was a letter from his brother that sent Morgorth back to his home land and now another letter has arrived only this time it was a letter he was expecting. It is time for Morgorth to appear before the Council of Mages for an official inquiry as to what happened in Zentha between him and Elder Elorn a council member and a member of the Hand.
Aishe and Morgorth’s brother Olyvre have been summoned as witnesses and once again he has brought Aishe and now his brother into mage business. Both Morgorth and Elorn give their sides of the story but it is the witness’s account that the council is waiting to hear. In order to determine the truth both Aishe and Olyvre will be spelled, a spell that will ensure their truth. Suvar a mage that has approached Morgorth previously is in attendance convinced that he and Morgorth will join forces and bring change to the council and the Hand. He just needs to wait for the final outcome as to who the council will believe. Of course Elorn is not a mage who leaves anything to chance and once again both his brother and Aishe are placed in jeopardy. Not being a fool Morgorth was well prepared for anything Elorn could devise to ensure his win.
After the verdict Morgorth does something he swore never to do he took Aishe’s choice away from him and had him transported back home and locked inside the castle, a prison in his own home, unable to leave and unable to reach Morgorth to find out what the decision was, was it for him or for Elorn. Morgorth knew that what he did could put an end to his and Aishe’s relationship but a live Aishe was easier to live with then a dead one and if the council voted against Elorn there was no doubt his brother and Aishe would be in danger.
Morgorth waited to return home and face Aishe but his delay put Aishe in more danger than he could ever have imagined because a dream demon took control of Aishe while he slept and what he subjected Aishe to in the Dreamworld would destroy anyone. Now he has to enter the Dreamworld where magic is useless, save Aishe and hope that their relationship is not severed entirely.
I have loved all the books up to now but I have to say this one was by far my favorite. Morgorth’s time spent with his brother was wonderful once again proving that he can be loved and can love back. There was also betrayal, secrets, surprises and a lot of suspense. I can’t wait to start book seven which I will be doing once I finish this review.
