Shadow’s End (Elder Races #9) by Thea Harrison
The author of Lord’s Fall and Midnight’s Kiss returns with an enchanting and sizzling new tale about debts that cannot be repaid and hunger that cannot be satisfied…
For Beluviel, consort to the Elven High Lord, and Graydon, gryphon and First Sentinel of the Wyr, even the slightest desire for each other is forbidden. But two hundred years ago, after a desperate play to save Beluviel’s stepson left them indebted to the cruel Djinn Malphas, they found their fates inexorably linked together—and the hunger between them growing too strong to ignore…
Two centuries later, with their debt to Malphas coming due, Beluviel and Graydon realize that, if they are to stand any chance of saving their souls, they must once again work together—this time more closely than ever before. But every moment they spend with each other brings them nearer to losing something even more vital—their hearts.
You know it is true love when you wait and plot 200 years before you have a chance to be together. That is what Belluviel and Graydon have done.
I loved the story and how true to each other Belluviel and Graydon were. They have very little contact over that time period. Neither knows how the other is feeling but they still remained true.
Before the book is over we get to see some of the other couples in the series as they all work together to free Belluviel, her son and Graydon from the curse placed on them by Djinn Malphas.
This is sweet love story filled with danger and tension. I loved Graydon and how Belluviel saw him so differently from so many others. The two of them are really interesting characters who fit even if others think that they don’t.
Shadow's End is a great addition to the Elder Races series. It can stand alone but start at book one for maximum enjoyment.
