He believes she’s a selkie—she has no desire to change his mind.

**Book three in the Myths of Moraigh Trilogy. The books are not stand-alone novels and must be read in order for full comprehension, but each novel has its own satisfying love story.**
The final book in the Myths of Moraigh Trilogy concludes the overarching story, while focusing on Ealann McEwan and Miles Duncan. The loch divides the feuding clans and Ealann and Miles are on opposite sides. A chance encounter causes them to meet and a friendship is borne of necessity. However, as war comes ever closer, they may have to choose between love and their families.
What an exciting book! Honestly, I wasn’t even sure how it could end! Ealann was such an interesting character. She was a healer and had committed to her path in the midst of tragedy. I appreciated her loyalty to her brother and her commitment to what she chose. She was not as fiery as Marion and seemed more reserved, but she was just as fiercely loyal as all the rest. I like the variety of characters in the series. It was interesting to see Moraigh through her eyes.
I really admired Miles. He was trying so hard to fight for peace and still hold to the loyalties he has sworn. He has been a character throughout the series and I was really interested in seeing his story. We have been slowly getting glimpses into his life and what he wants from the situation. His relationship with his mother was so sweet! I loved her input! She definitely was not afraid to share her opinion with her son.
It was cool to see the story from another side. The other books were firmly on the McEwan side and the Duncans were the other clan. But this book has these characters who offer a new look into the overarching struggle. There was so much suspense and uncertainty around the conflict and war that had been inching closer with every book. I wasn’t even sure how everything could be solved. Ms. Stockton did not take any short-cuts with the ending, so it felt complete and true to the characters, even if it was a bit bittersweet. Overall, I would definitely recommend this and it cannot really be read out of order to really understand the story. There is some violence and mentions of threats of assault, however, overall it is a clean story.
