This was good, but not as good as the first two. Isadora was a bit annoying and Lucan a little hard-headed, but it was an enjoyable and satisfying read. ( )

Kidnapped and separated from her sisters, the heroine is alive only because of the empresses decree. Her soul purpose in life is to care for the pregnant woman. Then the warrior comes. He's at the castle to negotiate the terms of whether the emperor will have his soldiers to battle the rebels. Then he sees the heroine Though no great beautiful something about her catches his eye, even before he notices the ring on her finger. That ring is what he needs to fulfil his duty as the prince of swords and end the war in his country. He forms the plan to seduce the ring from her finger but she makes it anything but easy. She's infuriated when the emperor comes to her demanding she go to the hero's bed-saying that he will have no other woman but her in return for his loyalty to the emperor. Grieving the death of her husband, she wants nothing at all to do with the arrogant but beautiful captain. But as they begin their affair, both of them are surprised to realize just how deeply their connection runs. The heroine, feeling alive and warm in the arms of the only man she's been with since her husband, is terrified to admit to herself that she's quickly falling in love with the handsome warrior. The hero is confused as he's never before felt anything close to what he feels when he's with the heroine. He's used to having things handed to him but she fights him with a fierce pride. She intrigues him and he allows what he swore he'd never allow. A woman to control him. It's because of her he sways between giving loyalty to the crazed emperor or to the rebels and when she's imprisoned, he'll risk anything to get her back. I loved this hero. He was so supremely confident without being cocky. It's hard to be obnoxiously arrogant when you have the means to back up everything you say. He was tender to her, patient with her and loyal to her above all others. Even when he realizes she's a witch-something he's supposed to hate-he never even bats an eye. He man enough to realize that he may not like witches or trust magic, but he loves this woman and nothing will come between them. I loved the heroine because she's also woman enough to accept her faults and take a chance at happiness. She put up a fight in the beginning, refusing to admit she even liked the hero but when she felt what he made her feel-safe and loved, she wakes up anf allows herself to enjoy it. I absolutely hated the emperor but what can you do- royalty are crazy and drunk with power-of course he's insane. But I loved his comeuppance in the end, especially after how he treated his wife. Lovely book with great characters/ ( )

Three books, one review!

The first book, Sun Witch, gets four stars. I really enjoyed the main characters and their slightly left-of-center beliefs about intimacy and relationships. There was a nice balance between their story and the overarching greater story that carried throughout the trilogy.

The second book, Moon Witch, was not as great. The idea of the feral beast-man and all the primitive yet magical society bits just didn't flow. It was also disruptive to the continuing story as this character didn't directly interact with the rest of the world.

This third book, Star Witch, brought together the threads of the various stories nicely. The heroine was a bit more complex, which fit the complexity of bringing everything to a close. Plus, I like a happy ending! ( )

The Sun Witch and The Moon Witch introduced the Fyne sisters, three different and engrossing witches coming into their own. Here, the eldest wonders how she can remain chaste with a sensuous enemy tempting her.

This is the final book in the Fyne Witches series about 3 sisters. Many years ago a Fyne witch rejected a wizard making him so angry he cursed the Fyne women so that their love will always die. Over the next three centuries any Fyne witch who married for love watched either their mate die young or ultimately hate them. Of the current generations of Fyne siblings, the oldest Isadore watched her spouse die. She and her sisters vow to never marry or fall in love until the curse is broken.

The eldest sister, Isadora, is without her sisters for the first time in her life, and a slave in the Emperor Sebestyen's strange and formidable palace. Having killed two men, she finds her magic all but gone. Acting as Empress Liane's personal witch, she decides to choose to protect Liane in order to try and regain the power she has lost.

Along comes Lucan the leader of a powerful group that the Emperor needs on side to defeat the rebels in the approaching civil war. Forced to sleep with him Isadora falls in love. Now she has to save Lucan, herself and the very pregnant Empress, find her sisters, break the curse and save the country - without Lucan finding out she is a witch.

As a whole the series is very good - I didn't like this story as much - but maybe that was because it has been over a year since I read the other two and I lost the rhythm of the story. ( )
