He was the deception waiting in the night; the truth I never saw coming. After a lifetime of manipulation, I finally learned the truth. I was his puppet—even if I never saw my strings.

Even knowing how deep his betrayal runs, I can’t shake the undeniable connection between Gray and I—the way a single glance from him sets my soul on fire. We are not the same. We’re enemies, poised to battle for the future of the very thing I’d wanted to destroy.

With the Covenant gone, the revenge I thought I wanted is no longer my priority. The witches that remain played no role in my aunt’s death, and the only person standing in the way of righting those wrongs is the very man determined to keep me in his bed.

But the remaining members of the Coven will never forgive me for the role I played in their demise and subjugation, and the worst part of all is that I can’t even blame them for it. I’d been naive, believing my own delusions of grandeur when destiny clearly had other plans for me. Plans that had been set in motion centuries before my birth.

But even that had been a lie, and now it is my duty to do everything in my power to undo it.

To protect my Coven from my husband’s hatred—no matter what the cost.

Everything Willow knew has been a lie. She was the puppet all along and she had absolutely no idea. The man who was her protector all along , had been the one holding the string and now nothing will ever be the same. She was the enemy of the only family she had found recently and just when she thought she had everything in control , she got to know that she was the fool all along and the man she had been in love with was the devil in disguise.

Gray says that she is his wife and there is no separation for them , but she'll show him hate. When he betrayed her , he exposed the one weakness he had. Her. She will ruin him even if she had to destroy herself to do that.

Overall Opinion :

Omgggggg. Like woah.

I swear Harper nearly killed everyone with that cliffhanger in the first book , So I literally had a remainder set out for this one. Most anticipated does not even begin to compare how obsessed I was with the upcoming release of this book!!

Willow and Gray are here and they have served so freaking hard. This duet had everything I want in my all time favorite reads. A classy Queen vibe throwing Heroine , A hero who is somehow both the villain and also loved the h in his very twisted way and some amazing plot twists!! Don't even get me started on the plot twist of book 1. I legit screamed at the end of the second last chapter. Like screamed into my pillow. I have never done that. This author took me to a new height 💀🤣🫠

The duet is officially the last book for Gray and Willow and is an HEA for these two. However we will definitely have more books from the same world for the side characters and I am so excited for that!!
