I love reading romance books (can't get enough of them) any sub genre of romance PNR/UF, RS , YA and NA. Most of my free time is spend reading because I view it as a hobby and entertainment.

I really enjoyed the previous book in the series Stone Guardian and I had been looking forward to reading this for awhile now.
Without giving away too much, this story is about Nalah a 'magic breaker' and Esh 'the cage king'. Nalah and Esh were childhood friends and then later more. The childhood relationship was sweet and their adult one all consuming. When her brother dies, Nalah feels hopeless and decides to steal back her mother's ring which eventually leads her to be appointed by the Guild and she decides to leave Esh and everything related to that old life behind .Years later after the events of the last book, her mothers ring goes missing and to find it she needs Esh help.
Minor Quibbles: While I enjoyed the book I loved how Esh was very much still in love with Nalah even after she had left but I had some issues with Nalah, namely that for a person who grew up on a streets she lacked certain thoughtfulness in her actions and in caring towards Esh. I understood she was protected by Esh and her brother though her brother usually got them in trouble as well so it was just Esh who was taking care of the siblings. I also don't know why but Fallon irked me in this book, I don't remember her doing that in the last book.
It is very difficult to get everything in a novella not just the romance but the plot line interesting while keeping the characters likable hence very rarely there is a novella that is prefect but I think Danielle did a good job. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
