"What is the spell for?" Miranda asked curiously, stepping close beside him to squeeze through the first ring of trees. She didn't know of any goblin spells that used flowers unless they were crushed like herbs.
"Do you really want to know?" murmured the elf absently, looking up at the dark crowns of the ancient oaks.
"Yes," she said. She had always liked magic. He glanced back down at her then.
"It's for you," he said. And the instant they passed the great trunks, his hand closed over her wrist.

The powerful final volume of the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy

Miranda has waited her whole life to come home to the goblin kingdom, but she never imagined she'd feel so alone there. Her beloved Marak, the center of her world since childhood, has reached the end of his reign.

But Marak didn't raise a coward. Miranda needs all her courage when a mysterious elf lord takes her prisoner, reigniting an age-old battle. Caught between two hostile races, she becomes their greatest reason for war--and their only hope for a future.

In this final volume of the Hollow Kingdom Trilogy, Clare B. Dunkle draws readers deep into her magical realm for one last incredible story.

The third in the series. Also very good but dark. One of the main themes in the series is that brides are captured and forced to marry their captors. In all the books, the marriage ends up being good, but as a feminist I am worried that this message is normalizing practices like marital rape and psychological phenomenon like stockholm syndrome. There are many places in the world where women are forced to marry men they do not choose, and this has many horrible consequences, none of which this series really addresses.

I love this book! I usually don't like books further into a series as much as the first one but this is a true rival! I just love how Nir is so blase in delivery but exacting in his words. Mira is just ridiculous sometimes but that makes Nir so much more . . . hot.
