Quinn Taleisin hates secrets, and shadows, and subterfuge. Which is why she still can’t believe she agreed to become a member of the Guardians, an elite force of immortals tasked with keeping the balance between good and evil in the world.
Sounds great, except, to be a guardian you must agree to live in secrecy. Quinn is a wind elemental. Being caged in by secrecy is worse than death for someone like her. She can’t imagine a worse fate—until she’s asked to work with Lachon Findel, the man she holds responsible for her mother’s death and her father’s insanity.
Lachon is the oldest living elemental in the world. Known as Lachon the Law, he’s an earth element; a man who sees the world in black and white, right and wrong. So maybe once, briefly, a hundred years ago she thought he was a good guy. She knew better now. No way would she fall for his savior of the world shtick.
When the dangers of the past catch up with them, Quinn realizes the only way either of them will make it out alive is if she can put the ghosts of the past behind her and finally trust the flesh and blood man in front of her.
Uncaged Review: I’m running out of good words about this series and this author. I wanted a book about Lachon from the first time I met him, and bringing in Quinn just sweetened the deal for me. I knew that I was going to want to dig into Lachon – and so many questions about him and his actions that we learned in past books, we finally get the answers. And a few of the answers may surprise the reader.
You could get away with reading this as a standalone, but I highly recommend reading the first two books in the series first – so the reader will learn about this world and the established relationships, and more about our two main characters here. Two people that can’t stand each other are thrown together and the secrets are going to come out. They will need to get over their prejudices and trust each other to live through the danger they are facing. Keep writing Ms. Haines, I’m already having withdrawal symptoms. Reviewed by Cyrene
