Transcendent by Olivia Hardin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this latest installment of the For Love of Fae series, Olivia Hardin weaves a wonderfully emotional story of love, redemption, and political intrigue.
It's hard to make readers fall in love with a character that they once despised, but that's exactly what she does. If you've read the Bend-Bite-Shift series, you met Robin and maybe like me you thought he got off far too easy. Devon, the faery-witch, banishes him to the feary realm, stripping him of his magic powers. I had a sense of smug justice, though, when he appears in a later book transformed into a weasel, because in the faery realm "what is, is." Lol! Perfect.
But in this book we find out what happened in his past that led him to do the things he did, and we also get to witness his metamorphosis. People are capable of change, if they really, really want it. And what motivates us more than love? To love and to be loved.
I couldn't put it down and had to read it twice, immediately. Great book by an awesome author.
