All Maleta knew was pain and suffering. Left for dead after a brutal attack, she devotes herself to the Goddess Hedda and becomes an accomplished swordswoman who is bent on destroying the Queen holding her country hostage and to restore her ancestral home to her brother, regardless of the cost to Maleta. Cianan is drawn to the land of Shamar that he dreamed of and vows to help Maleta, even after recognizing her from the dream vision he had. Finding out that this woman who buried her heart deep inside herself and shies away from his touch is his life-mate is just another challenge for Cianan. The real challenge: Having Maleta open her heart to the one man who can save her from herself.

Ms. Wildes delivers another story in the Guardians of Light series that is breathtakingly wonderful. Her writing just keeps you enthralled with the many twists and turns the story takes and it keeps you on the edge of your seat, waiting for the next turn to spin you out of control. Just when you think you got the story down pat…WHAM! Ms. Wildes delivers another twist that has you gasping for more. Her multifaceted characters are wonderful, especially as you get to see “old” friends from the first book, DUALITY, joining in HEDDA’S SWORD.

Ms. Wildes does a wonderful job in creating a series that will keep you highly entertained, enthralled and you will devour the next saga of the Guardians of Light series in HEDDA’S SWORD. If you enjoy a fast paced fantasy romance, then run, don’t walk, to grab HEDDA’S SWORD. I am anxiously awaiting the next installment and hope it won’t be long for my fix from this new author.
