The lost memories of a thief...
The first twelve years of Alina's life are a black void. An accomplished thief, she uses her cloaking ability to pick pockets as well as stage elaborate heists. Digging deeper into her past sets off a chain of events that puts her, and the family she has just discovered, in the sights of their worst enemy.
...and the scarred heart of a guardian...
In secret, Lash Watcher Caine plots vengeance for the destruction of everything he loved. Branded by loss, he longs to find his one true mate, knowing that only with her will his heart fully heal. When his brief meeting with Alina is interrupted by her elaborate evade-and-escape plan, he knows there is more to her than meets his watchful eyes. But nothing can prepare him for the lethal power of her mind.
...collide at the fault line of destiny.
A brilliant villain with a vicious and loyal army behind her can only be stopped by one force: the combined power of four women who command the elements. Alina, with her newly-discovered affinity to the earth, becomes the linchpin to halting the desecration of their world. Thrown into a battle plan and a new family, she finds joy in in the quiet strength of Caine's arms. But when the secrets to her past are revealed, she learns a terrible price has been paid in advance. The very magic that allowed her to live to fulfill a prophecy will forever deny her heart's deepest wish.
~ 3.5 On Wicked Ground Stars ~
On Wicked Ground is the fourth and final book in the Solsti Prophecy. Everything has been leading up to the girls finding the lost Solsti and battling the big bad.
This novel takes place right after Wicked Flames, so you do need to read this series in order to understand what is happening. Each book brings us deeper into the prophecy, seeing each sister develop their powers, find their mates, and get closer to discovering what they must do to save the realms. This final book answers a lot of questions, along with giving us an action-packed, fast-paced, adventure and romance.
Alina was a unique character in that she grew up in the demon real and knows all about this world, unlike her sisters who got a crash course. I liked her confidence and compassion. I felt for her when she learns that their is a price for her powers. Unlike her sisters, her gift and life took a different turn and this news leaves her with a deep sadness.
Caine I loved him. For being such a huge intimidating warrior he has a very soft side. He’s sincere and noble. He’s had a sad past, enduring loss and learning to put it into perspective. Unlike his other demon brethren, he dreams of a mate of his own and a family.
These two understood each other quite well, acknowledged their attraction, and actually talked to each other sharing more then sex. We are treated to some very sensual love scenes; between Alina and Caine. I will say I was a little disappointed that they got so wrapped up and forgot condoms. In the previous books all the others remembered, even when they where so hot for each other. I just felt they where too new together to start a family this soon.
We are treated to no shortage of action and skirmishes. I will say the finally show down was a bit disappointing. I was hoping for a little more and to have it drawn out longer. Things felt like they wrapped up a little to fast and that things fell into place a little to easily for my liking. Regardless, the ending was satisfying.
Even though this is the final book in the Solsti Prophecy. It is not the end. The author has started a spinoff Watcher’s Kiss series, which gives us more Lash demon watcher’s and their stories. If you like fast-paced stories with a touch of magic and paranormal then you should give this series a try.
