Feature book: Bay of Sighs
Bay of Sighs by Nora Roberts
This second book in the Guardians trilogy continues the fight to secure the three stars and defeat the goddess Nerezza. This time Nerezza has someone else fighting on her team, someone that Riley and Sawyer had known in the past, but he is much more than just human now. The six must train and plan in order to meet the threat head-on—and they come up with some sneaky plans—and even with all that there is danger to each of them.
Annika and Sawyer are the couple featured in this book. I loved Annika in the previous story and she was just as captivating in this one. Sawyer is great in a swashbuckling kind of way, but Annika really steals the show with her handsprings and tablescapes and generous heart. Her joy of life and her endearing innocence make for an unforgettable character. Despite some dark moments that dim that joy, Annika and Sawyer, along with the others, win out in this round.
Once the quest wraps up in the third book (because, come on, we know it will), there will still be the question of what happens to Annika and Sawyer once she is required to return to her people. I’m dying to read the final edition in this trilogy, not only for the resolution of the quest, but so that Annika and Sawyer can truly have a happy ending.
