The 3rd book in the Indigo Court series. Cicely and her friends have rescued Grieve but at the cost of their alliance with the vampires and the Summer Queen. In desperation, they turn to the Consortium, the preeminent magical guild, for help. Now, to regain the good will of Lainule, they must dare to enter the heart of Myst's realm. But as Cicely and Grieve embark on their search for the heartstone of Summer, Myst, the Queen of Winter, is already wrecking her terrifying revenge.
I was really amazed at just how much was packed into this book. There was lots of action in the previous two books but this one seemed to kick it up a notch. Don't want to give too much away but there is a lot of change of leadership in the supernatural realm. We get to learn a little bit more about the Consortium (and I have a feeling they will be playing a bigger part in later books) and Rhia's and Peyton's backgrounds as well. We've been told that there is more to the history of Grieve and Cicely than has been revealed so far but no clue what it is. Several things do get resolved a bit but so much more gets set-up. Love this series!
