I hosted the fourth book in this series, and I’m very happy to keeping up with it.
The book is Midnight’s End (The Fae Games, #5) by Jill Ramsower, and it released at the beginning of the month in the Adult, Fantasy, Romance genre.
Sorceress, enchantress, deceiver, murderer—I’ve been called all those and more, some that might make you blush. Lucky for me, I couldn’t care less what people think about me. I’ve had my sights set on one thing for the last thousand years, and that’s all that matters. I’ll do whatever it takes to find the cauldron, even if it means taking on a partner. They call him a knight in shining armor. For me, he’s my golden ticket. He fell into my lap, quite literally, and now he’s going to help me get what I want.
I don’t play particularly well with others, but he’s the best shot I’ve got, so I’ll hop on that train and hope it gets me where I need to go. He thinks he’s going to crack my shell and see what’s on the inside, like maybe there’s a warm gooey center to make up for the hard exterior. He’s in for a world of disappointment. Everything soft and delicate about me became rough and hardened a long time ago. I’m Morgan Le Fay, and I’m the villain in this story.
AUTHOR BIO:Jill is a Texan, born and raised. She manages the hectic social calendars for her three active children and occasionally spends an evening with her dashing husband. Aside from being an author and a mom, she’s an attorney, travel junkie, and voracious reader.
I asked Jill if she can she tell us more about the hero of this story, since there’s little about him in the synopsis, and here’s what she said.
Knight makes his debut in the second book of The Fae Games Series, Twilight Siege, when he comes to Rebecca’s aid in the form of a large white wolf. Not much is known about him at first, but we eventually learn that he works with Merlin, acting as the ancient Fae sorcerer’s eyes and ears when he is not around. As his story unfolds, we learn that Knight was tortured for years at the hands of a nasty clan of Unseelie Red Caps. Merlin rescued him from captivity, and the two had been companions ever since.
Knight is generally laid-back, often found lounging on a sofa or asleep in the shade. He is playful and unapologetic but also has an intensely protective side, which helps him act as a bodyguard for both Rebecca and Ashley at different times during their adventures. There are signs throughout the books that Knight may be more complex than his canine form would suggest, but not until the short story, Beneath the Crimson Cloak, do we see his true form as a Fae man unveiled.
As we move into Midnight’s End, we delve into Knight’s background, uncovering the details about how and why he was turned into a wolf. We also see a shift in his character after being returned to his true form. His personality is no longer quite so easygoing as he faces hard truths from his past and struggles with his altered reality. Life is not so straight forward when you become more than a simple pawn in a game of kings and queens.
