Lots of mystery, intrigue, betrayal, and treachery in this one. I started to see Robin's part maybe 3/4 of the way in, but I didn't expect it. But the love between Jayr and Byrne was so sweet. I can't believe they waited 700 years!!! Especially being in such close proximity the entire time. I also thought the successor to Byrne was so very apropos. I got a lump in my throat when Michael announced it. So fitting. So many different things were happening in this one, but it was all very interesting. Another great installment to the series. I will definitely continue reading.
