Publisher's Summary

The odds are stacked against her as she faces her greatest challenge yet...But that's nothing new in her world.

The fifth book in the plot-twisting, heart-pounding, magic-riddled USA Today best-selling Desert Cursed series. 

I thought I had the next steps in my journey plotted out. I thought I knew where I was going and who I was going with - the usual crew of Lila, the smart-mouthed tiny dragon, Ford, the man who would be my mate if I let him, and Balder, the horse who has carried me through more danger than I can count.

Crap on a camel, I could not have been more wrong. My world is turned upside down when my crew somehow gains two people who would as soon kill me as see me succeed. 

Even with this new twist, I must get to the crossroads before the golden moon rises, if we have any chance of dethroning the emperor and bringing my brother back from the dead.

Along the way, I find myself in treacherous waters facing new dangers, new enemies, and a choice that no one should ever have to make. 

Maks’s life is in my hands, and in the end, will love be enough to save him, or will I have to say goodbye to him, once and for all?

If you like KF Breene, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs, Faith Hunter, Jaymin Eve, Kelley Armstrong, Kim Harrison, or Shayne Silvers, you won’t want to miss Mayer’s books!

I didn't expect that ending!

I almost don't know what to say! There were 3 character arcs that seem to have been resolved. Though I don't trust Shannon to not spring something on us again. ;)
I did NOT expect to see the resolution for those three (trying to not have spoilers) this soon in the series.

There were 2 enemies *probably* eliminated. I mean, it's fantasy, they might come back.
But there are certainly still quite a few enemies gunning for Zam, her pride, or world domination. All of which Zam would like to prevent.

Aaand, there's still a meddling Merlin who may or may not actually be helping. 🤣

I'm looking forward to listening to the next book and hopefully, Steve will get his comeuppance.

In full disclosure, I received a free copy of the audiobook for an honest review.

Lots of action

I love this series so far. I love the action and the twists and turns. The characters are great. I think the narrator is fantastic. The way she does all of the different voices is great. Can't wait to get started on the next book.

Best book in the series

Wyvern’s Lair has been and will always been my favorite book in this series. So many things were brought to light and you start to find out who the big players are. As is common in Shannon Mayer’s books you think you know what to expect and then things take an immediate turn and drop you off a cliff. This book will have you laughing, crying, screaming and falling in love with these characters all over again. Lauren Fortgang bring so much life to this world and these characters that I can’t help but love her.

Steve.

Every time Steve makes an appearance, I can't help but curse him. He's the most frustrating character in a series ever. the author pulls that off magnificently. There is no one else that you can't help but love to hate.

Freaking awesome

The way Shannon Mayer writes, is just freaking awesome. She will have you laughing, crying and have you saying what the hell is going to happen. All I can say is you have to read or listen to the book. And if you listen to the book, you'll love how Lauren Fortgang does it.

Loved it!!

The narrator, Lauren does a fantastic job narrating this series. She’s able to use different voices for all of the characters without causing confusion and it’s very easy to follow. I love how she breathes life into the story.
I was on the edge of my seat while listening to this book. It is so good!! You will love the characters. They are broken, cursed, but they are a kickass, powerful team. Loved it!!

Betrayal, Friendship, and Love

Zam and Lila are on a mission to stop the Emperor but is there hope to save Max too? This has been my favorite book of the series. This adventure sucked me and kept me on the edge of my seat. There are so many twist and turn but it never felt forced or overwhelming. This book moves the series along and leaves room for the adventure to continue.
If you need to get lost in a story, this one is it!

Poor addled heart!

“cray, cray”? Didn’t expect to hear that… Shannon keeps a touch of modern in these books mixed right along with the heavy fantasy feel. Not even a third of the way through listening and I’m laughing my butt off! This narrator is very good at eliciting emotions right along with the main character. So many twists and turns had me alternating between laughing, heart racing, and sputtering in shock. My heart was pulled in so many directions throughout this book. Fantastic job!

SO Many Emotions!

Although all of the characters have grown so much already, nothing compares to what they face in the fifth book in the series! Alliances, pacts, are made yet broken. As are hearts, and dreams; yet a tiny glimmer of hope remains. Despite all the darkness and challenges, Zam and Lila will always fight for what is right. Buckle up for a wild ride though. Because you definitely need to expect the unexpected with this latest book!

Another rollercoaster

Zam and the crew still have a lot of battles ahead and a long way to go. But some good things happen in this book its worth the stress and heart ache.

Love this series

Shannon Mayer is one of my favourite authors. Her worlds, characters and their journeys never disappoint and the Desert Cursed series is no different.

This next chapter in Zam’s story was once again full of adventure and betrayal, with a constant undercurrent of love that I really enjoy. No not ‘romance’, this isn’t a romcom! In fact ‘true love’ is often quite heartbreaking in Shannon’s worlds, she explores so much more than that, she always explorers love and how relationships can change; friend to enemy, enemy to love, a family of the heart that’s stronger than blood.

All mixed in with adventure that has your tension high and often has you wondering something like, ‘did I just end up rooting for the bad guy?!’

Zam’s faced so much already and still has so far to go! Please hurry with the next book already! :)
