Morgan Bailey’s complicated life–dragon boyfriend, witches, vampires to slay, the ongoing pursuit of coffee–is about to turn more complicated. The Fairy Queen is calling in a favor. She wants Morgan to exterminate the djinn. If that isn’t bad enough, her nemesis Alister has gone completely mad, and most alarmingly, Inigo isn’t quite himself. It’s enough to make a vampire hunter yearn for the simpler days: stake ‘em and leave ‘em.
But Morgan is more than a vampire hunter, she’s a vessel for colossal cosmic powers that yearn for release. Now, with the fate of the whole world in the balance, she’ll discover the secret to those powers, and learn what it means to be Kissed by Eternity.
THE END IS JUST THE BEGINNING…
What I liked: I was a bit apprehensive when I realized Kissed by Eternity would be the last of the Sunwalker Saga, but I shouldn't have worried at all. Ms MacLeod did a great job of ending the series but setting it up for a spin-off in the Sunwalker world.
This will be extremely hard to write without spoilers. Morgan has a lot on her plate; she waiting to see what's going to happen between her and Inigo (what a cool name) and in addition the Fairy Queen has started a war with Djinn.
There are a few new characters introduced and hopefully we will see them developed further in the spin-off of this series. I really want to see what Ms Mac Leod does with Kabita, Morgan's best friend. Not even to mention the hunky viking, Haakon Magnussen. Mmmm. He ought to cause a bit of trouble.
The explanation of Morgan's powers as "The Key" is a revelation I didn't see coming. The author handled every little tidbit with care and explanation. You aren't left unsatisfied at the end except for a bit of a surprise that I'm looking forward to reading about in the new series.
What I didn't like: I was a bit conflicted on Jack's whole part in this series. He started off front and center as The Guardian of the Key and then after the revelation of Morgan's lineage, he became more or less superfluous. Weird.
The writing is top notch, the pacing good and the characters are unforgettable. I applaud Ms MacLeod for knowing when to end a series but carrying on with the fantastic world she has been building.
Highly recommend this series!!
