Meg Anthony is an imposter. Born in the poorest part of the city, she was a thief used for her supernatural powers by her Uncle and his nephew for their selfish needs. 

When she is found by the Order of the Muse, she is saved from a life miserable life and is begins training as a lady. But when her Uncle finds out where Meg is at then for her protection, she is sent to Wales under the protection of the mysterious and isolated Badewyn.

Badewyn who is a nephilim, doesn’t want nor believe in love but when Meg arrives at his door he is tempted to change his mind and never let her go.

I didn’t realize that this was book three to the Order of the Muse series. But it really doesn’t matter because as reading it I didn’t feel as if I was missing something. I greatly appreciated this and it showed skill from the author.

So anyway, I liked this book; I thought it was okay. The reason I thought it was “just okay” was because the characters weren’t that memorable for me, although the plot was actually pretty good. Meg didn’t display a true personality after she fell for Badewyn. She was witty and had an “issue” of holding her tongue but it didn’t really last long because everything became about Badewyn, her love for him and his complicated love for her.

It wasn’t an issue of conflict between the two because they had more than enough. I simply wanted her to shine more. It would have made the book perfect. As for Badewyn, he wasn’t what I was expecting and I felt that his change was a bit surprising. He went from a isolated man who didn’t want his feelings to the next page proclaiming his unconditional love. I liked the fact that he knew what he wanted but the change was drastic.

The plot was creative and it kept my attention all the way through. However, it should have been more dramatic. The ending was too easy and that pissed me off because no one should have gotten scotts free. It was too much of a cliche happy ending.

I liked the book but it could have been much much more dramatic considering it was dealing with the supernatural. I’m not exactly sure if I will read the first two books. This book didn’t make me feel as if I was missing something; therefore I may not continue it.
