Marion Garin, the Voice of God, is due to marry the Prince of the Autumn Court by the end of the week - assuming that the world's preternatural leadership doesn't have anything to say about it. They plan to strip Prince ErlKonig of his title, ensuring that Marion can't form a god-forbidden treaty with the angels.Thoughts on Cast in Faefire: Man, I hate Konig. On a whole bunch of levels. His mom kinda sucks, too. All the political maneuvering and empty smiles make me want to punch both of them in the throat. Hard.
Still injured from his final fight in Sheol, Seth Wilder is seeking a way to stay alive. If he dies, he'll lose more than his life - he'll be slave to the gods' whims for all eternity. He's ready to take drastic steps. Maybe even make a bargain with the vampires. But what the gods want, they get. And they don't appreciate being defied.
So, you know, this book kinda made me ragey. In that "WHEN ARE THEY ALL GOING TO HAVE DIVINE JUSTICE RAIN DOWN UPON THEM?" sort of way. I fully expect the divine justice part at some point. Since nothing's ever easy in S.M. Reine's universe, it'll take a while to get to that point, BUT IT WILL COME. FOR ALL OF THEM!
Meanwhile, things seem to be looking up on the Seth/Rylie front. That torch he's been carrying for her is tough to watch. Especially given how happy Rylie is with Abel. Or at least how fertile. Those two wacky werewolves sure do make babies with alarming frequency. But the Seth/Rylie thing needed to be hashed out. And it was. More or less.
I don't even know what else I can talk about without giving away all the juicy plot points. I kinda hate a lot of the fae (jerks. They're all jerks. And kinda arrogant.). I kinda hate Elise and James. They've always been a tough couple to deal with and godhood hasn't done them any favors. (I do love how difficult they are, just to be clear. They're just not easy. Ever. Elise would jump over a cliff just to spite someone after they told her it couldn't be done. Which is dangerous when it was coming from a kick-ass warrior, downright deadly now that she's a god.)
I honestly don't know how things are going to get smoothed out. There's BIG stuff happening all over the place and a lot of it isn't good. For the characters, that is. It's good to read. You know, in that ragey, divine justice sort of way.
