Horizon by Christie Rich

Horizon by Christie Rich Purchase:

    I know you’ll fall in love with Christie Rich’s writing, just as easily as you fall in love with her characters.

    Evil has many faces—unfortunately, Rayla Tate has seen them all, or so she thinks. Since she learned she was an Elemental, she has been hunted for her power. But Rayla hasn’t met her greatest foe; she hasn’t seen true evil…yet.

    Rayla betrayed her bondmate to be with the man she loves. Now that she has Heath at her side, she is ready to face the fae council and move on with her life. Too bad Zach has other ideas. He’s not about to give Rayla up just because his sister got in the way. He will find Rayla and prove to her that he is the man she is meant to be with, even if he has to face the monsters of the dark realms to do it.

    Despite her growing feelings for Heath, with every passing day her body gives in to her bond with Zach. Rayla must leave the dark realms or risk losing control of her mind and ultimately her power. Once back in Lombarda, she discovers a secret about her origins that could shake the foundations of the world, both fae and human. There is more at stake than who she is bound to. The Order and the fae both want control of the same thing, and this time it is not her.

    Rayla must unite with unlikely allies to destroy the evil plaguing Faeresia. For if she refuses, she will succumb to a compulsion she never could have anticipated and plunge the world and those she loves into darkness or utter oblivion.

    Horizon is the final book in the Elemental Enmity series, and what an ending!! This was one of those series that will stay with me for years to come. Five stars isn’t even close to enough!

    How do you describe a story that moved you, that days later you cannot get out of your head? I’m going to have to try, but know there is no way my review will do this story justice. It starts out after Rayla has been rescued by Heath, the two are in love, but she is still bonded to Zach (Ammon). Zack searches for his bond-mate and she is physically ill from their separation, but her heart only wants Heath. This disagreement between Rayla’s heart and body was heart-wrenching.

    When Zack finds Rayla she vows not to give herself over fully to him. She doesn’t hide her feelings for Heath and Zack (who I expected to EXPLODE) accepts her, thankful to have whatever pieces of her she’s willing to share. Another Fae, more powerful than the five Fae Lords sets his sights on Rayla. He’s vile, evil, powerful, and one of the most horrible villains I’ve come across in the paranormal romance genre. I won’t say anymore because it would be impossible to do so without spoilers.

    The story is eloquently written. I love the way Christie Rich writes, every scene is written so vividly that I feel like I’m in the story. The scenes are full of action and *swoooooon* she makes me fall for every male character! How is that possible? I hate love tri-angles, but she has accomplished a love-pentagram (five sided – five Fae Lords) that I could not put down!! Her characters are multi-dimensional and her plot is deeply layered.

    I know you’ll fall in love with Christie Rich’s writing, just as easily as you fall in love with her characters.

    Review by H. Coop:

    What an imagination Christie has! Truly enjoyed all the books in this series. I love the twists and turns this book took and was so glad to have answers to several questions at the end.

    I think this wrapped everything very nicely. Definitely closure, but I love how there is still room for the author to add more to the to this world. There’s still so much I want to know more about; the characters, the place, and time, etc. I truly hope Christie keeps on writing!!

    Definitely recommend reading ALL the books in this series. It does not disappoint!
