As Alainn and Killian O'Brien begin their married life together, Alainn encounters many new and unexpected challenges. Stricken by the disturbing, reoccurring vision of Killian's death, she desperately seeks a way to prevent it from happening. In hope of providing a normal life for their unborn child, Alainn turns from her own magical abilities but soon realizes that doing so may endanger everyone she cares for. 

Hmm... this book wasn't as engaging as the other books in the series. At least not for me. The characters started to behave very differently than they had in the previous books, and more than once they annoyed me.

The plot of this book also felt to drag, the final two months of Alainn's pregnancy lasted the majority of the book, and I didn't really feel like anything interesting happened during that time.

I feel like there's supposed to be a bigger plot, it's often alluded to, but never really elaborated on. Just often vaguely suggested to, never really explained.

Even though this book was a letdown, I do plan on reading the other two books planned for the series. I want to know what this bigger plot is, and why it matters. I think the next book should focus more on Alainn and her magic. The Faries, and the Gods we've met in previous books, the other fairies, and Gods we haven't met but were mentioned.
