A New York Times Bestseller
The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.
As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her.…
An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love—and save them all …
“Grounded in Celtic lore, a clear understanding of myth, and a liberal dusting of magic, this is the compelling conclusion to Roberts’s trilogy…An engaging page-turner that should appeal to fantasy and romance fans alike.”
"[A] slow-burning romance on Doyle’s ancestral lands…Doyle and Riley’s search for the hidden Island of Glass while being hunted by the weakened goddess of death maintains suspense, and a fellow Guardian’s grandmother, brought in to help heal Riley after she is gravely injured, provides wonderful local color.”
“Voice-over actress and experienced audiobook narrator Saskia Maarleveld adroitly handles the various accents and dialects of the characters seamlessly."
