Lost to the darkness, Fuery wages a daily war against the corruption that lives within him, constantly in danger of slipping into the black abyss and becoming the monster all elves fear. Work as an assassin gives him purpose, but what reason is there to go on when he killed the light of his life—his fated mate?Thoughts on Unchained by a Forbidden Love: Oh, Fuery. You're a big ball of messed up and it's ROUGH. Tainted and as close to being lost as an elf can get... ouch.
Shaia has spent forty-two centuries mourning her mate. Tired and worn down, she agrees to wed a male of her family’s choosing, following tradition that has always bound her as a female and hoping she will be able to gain just a little freedom in return. But as she resigns herself to being the mate of a male she could never love, fate places an old friend in her path—one who tells her that her lost love is alive.
Will Shaia find the courage to break with tradition and leave the elf kingdom in search of her mate? And as a ray of light pierces his soul again, can Fuery find the strength to win his battle against the darkness or will it devour him and that light of their forbidden love forever?
To be fair, though, Shaia is just as adrift as he is. She might not be lost to the darkness like Fuery, but four thousand years alone chips away at a person and sometimes it makes them agree to things they don't want and would never agree to otherwise. Honestly, the male chosen by her family is DEFINITELY one she wouldn't have agreed to on her own.
Good thing both Shaia and Fuery have a mutual acquaintance who makes a pointed observation at the right time. Because they both need one another more than they realize and Bleu's coded words come at the right place and time.
Fifteen books in and I'm still loving these fated mates and their bone-deep drive to be together. It might take them a while to end up in the right place, but it all works out in the end.
