"A Powerful end to an Incredible Trilogy!"
Isadora Fyne has witnessed the tragedy of the prophecy
that hangs over the Fyne women. Both she and her sisters
are not able to love a man past his 30th birthday without
him dying. And if they should marry or fall in love with
man older than 30, then he will turn away in disgust as
soon as the love become realized by both and leave
forever. For Isadora it was her husband who died at age
The loss so ravaged her soul that she used her magic to
summon him at night. But that soon came to an end as the
only way he could cross over or have any peace in death
was for Isadora to let him go. Now utterly alone and
trapped in the Columbyana castle she tends to the Empress
Liane who is pregnant. She has sworn to protect and serve
Liane until the baby is born.
Previously, in the Moon Witch, Isadora came to realize
that by using her power to kill or lash out against
another person caused her own power to weaken and dim. Now
a servant to the Empress, Isadora hopes that by willingly
serving and protecting Liane she will regain the light of
her magic which has gone dormant to some degree.
What she does not anticipate is Captain Lucan Hern a
visiting guest and a man who commands great warriors, to
request her presence in his bed. Incensed by this over
bearing man she tells the Emperor Sebestyen that she will
not go. Sebestyen needs Lucan Hern's forces to win the
rebellion that is growing, so he orders Isadora to Lucan's
bed. And to ensure she goes there he assigns two armed
guards to her.
The Star Witch is a wonderful book that wraps up an
amazing story of three sisters bound by one mother and
three unique fathers. It is through their differences that
they find their strengths and the key to their witchcraft.
The love and romance is rich and heartfelt. And the
lessons learned and gained from both good and evil are
equal in their value. This trilogy held so many amazing
dimensions and depths that I found I was equally satisfied
and sad to see it come to a close.
Linda Winstead Jones has written a masterpiece in this
trilogy and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
