From national bestselling author Lisa Shearin comes a new chapter in "one of the best fantasy series currently on the market." (Night Owl Reviews) My name is Raine Benares--and it sucks to be me right now. I'm a seeker who found the Saghred, a soul-stealing stone that gave me unlimited powers I never wanted. Now I've lost the rock--and the magic it gave me--to a goblin dark mage whose main goals are my death and world domination. This is more than incentive enough for a little trip to the goblin capital of Regor with a small band of good friends, not-so-good friends, and one outright enemy. Don't ask. All we need to do is destroy the Saghred, kill the mage, and put a renegade goblin prince on the throne. Did I mention I'll be doing that with no magic?

Epic ass-kicking action, check. Crafty evil villain, check. Not so crafty evil villain, check. Hot lead, and hot lead's lover, check ,double check.
This book contains everything one can ask for in a magical/fantasy type genre novel. Being the last in the series, I looked forward to the epic culmination of good vs. evil and I was not disappointed. Expect many twists and turns, more deadly mystical creatures and last but not least, the epic battles between the good, evil, and those in between.
From the very first page right up to the very last one in this sixth instalment of the Raine Benares series, the story is pretty much an action-packed one two punch of magical awesomeness. It picks up right where the fifth book stopped, with barely any time passing between the two books. Raine is even more hell bent on getting rid of the Stone that's been the bane of her existence for quite some time and travels to Regor to finally take down the slimy Sarad Nukpana once and for all.
4 stars of sheer magical satisfaction :)
