Kerrelyn Sparks combines humor, action, and love in the electrifying new
book in her thrilling fantasy series.
Four sisters have become queens, rulers of all that Aerthlan’s two moons embrace. The last sister will forge her own path . . .
Signs and Seals
Raised on the magic-seeped Isle of Moon, Maeve is used to unusual
powers—and the way they fuel the politics of her world. But when she
discovers an ability to shape-shift at will, she knows who she wants to
share it with first. Brody, the enigmatic, infuriating shifter-spy has
always made time for Maeve. But it’s been almost two months since she’s
seen him. And though no one else believes Brody is in danger, Maeve is
more than ready to rescue him herself.
The rumors Brody’s
investigating are terrifying: a secret army of magic-users, in the
service of the cruel Circle of Five. But when he uncovers the identity
of one of the Five, the mission becomes personal. Cursed as a boy by the
Sea Witch, Brody can spend only two hours a day in his human form, a
restriction that limits his future and muzzles his heart. Plus Maeve
teases him for being such a pretty doggy instead of appreciating his
manly charms. To win his freedom, he must take on a terrible disguise.
And when Maeve finds out, she’ll unleash a tempest like no other . . .
I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I have enjoyed this series from the very beginning and I was really excited to finally read Brody’s story. This is the final book in the series and I would recommend reading the series in order if at all possible. It was really easy to slip back into this world and fun to check in with some much-loved characters. I am so glad that I was finally able to work this book into my schedule.
