Book Description: The final installment in the â€śmesmerizingâ€ť (Booklist, starred review) and addictive trilogyâ€”find out who truly holds the key to Lannyâ€™s heart and whether sheâ€™ll be reunited with her beloved in this gripping supernatural tale of magic, lust, and longing.Lanore McIlvrae has been on the run from Adair for hundreds of years, dismayed by his mysterious powers and afraid of his violentâ€”even murderousâ€”temper. She betrayed Adairâ€™s trust and imprisoned him behind a stone wall to save Jonathan, the love of her life. When Adair was freed 200 years later, she was sure that he would find her and make her existence a living hell. But things turned out far different than sheâ€™d imagined. Four years later, Lanore has tracked Adair to his mystical island home, where he has been living in self-imposed exile, to ask for a favor. She wants Adair to send her to the hereafter so she may beg the Queen of the Underworld to release Jonathan, whom she has been keeping as her consort. Will Lanore honor her promise to Adair to return? Or is her intention to reunite with Jonathan at any cost? Of all the forces of the universe, the most mysterious, confounding, and humbling is the power of love. The epic story of love and loss, magic and destiny that began with The Taker and sparked a chase around the world in The Reckoning comes to a surprising conclusion with The Descent.
