Title: Noble Treachery (An Elemental Witch Trial #14)
Author: Lucretia Stanhope
Loss. Treason. Destruction.
When Tennyson arrives to attempt his harmony quest, it brings bitterness and unrest to his family and Gwen’s. While they grapple with the sorrow of another sacrifice so soon, something more devastating sweeps the realm, putting them all in danger.
The sun is up. Sergei is pinned in the basement. Rose is away, battling. Matvei is unaware of anything amiss. Gwen and her court witches must work together to fight off the new threat on their own.
Filled with the usual twists, anguish, and heartbreak I’ve come to expect with this story.
There were a lot more fight scenes than usual though as Gwen fought to keep the vampires from completely rising to power. Treachery is fitting for the title because it is a vital element to the theme of this book. And of course it is. That’s usually true whenever Matvei is involved.
Fantastically written and fast paced. A great setup for the next book in the series!
