Title: A Darkness at the Door
Series: Dauntless Path #3
Author: Intisar Khanani
I’ve been cursed, betrayed, and sold into slavery – but the truth I carry can’t be allowed to die.
Only Rae knows the extent of the corruption at the heart of the kingdom of Menaiya, from the noble lord who betrayed her, to the Circle of Mages whose wards protect the slavers from discovery. Injured and imprisoned on a slave ship, Rae’s options are quickly running out. When a desperate escape attempt goes terribly wrong, she finds herself indebted to a terrifying Fae sorceress.
Now Rae will not rest until she has rescued her fellow prisoners and freed her land from the darkness that has taken hold. To succeed, she’ll need every ally she can find—including Bren, the thief who may have stolen her heart. But Bren is hiding his own bloody secrets, and the curses that encircle Rae have sunk their claws into her mind. With her debts coming due and time running short, all the truths in the world may not be enough to save her kingdom, or herself.
‘The final reckoning.’
So we left Rae in a predicament in the last book and now continues the rest of story……
This tale takes us on sea voyages, to different towns, we meet villains, there’s camaraderie and also a dash of romance!
Bren and Rae make my heart sing! They accept each other just as they are.
Also 2 huge highlights in this book for me were Bren’s companions, Lirika and Artemian, they were just fab side characters.
As well as the above there is drama, deceptions, action and magic – this book has it all and I completely adored it.
I don’t see this trilogy about much and that has to be remedied as each book was a solid 5 stars for me, more if I could give them!
