Publisher's Summary

He’ll break her chains. She’ll free his soul.

Tasked by his chieftain, Sigvard the Nameless will do whatever it takes to save his people, and the whole of Sestoria, from succumbing to darkness. He’ll travel the continent to claim a magess said to be so powerful, she can wake a sleeping mountain. It won’t be a true bonding. One must have a heart for such things, and Sigvard’s went dormant years ago.

Adira Greykeeper has spent her life hidden behind high walls, under the thumb of a man she both despises and depends upon. The only thing she fears more than her prison is the thought of a life without it, a life where her power reigns unchecked - even by her own will.

When a wild man on a legendary mount spirits her away, Adira is determined to return to her gilded cage before she can relive the horror of her youth. The savage is willing to suffer any fate to keep her at his side, a folly Adira knows will herald his doom. Despite his tortured soul, the barbarian lends her a bravery she’s never known, and with it, hope. But it comes with a price, and he’ll demand more from her than she could ever have imagined.

Two hearts. Two wounds. One great love - may the mountain fall.

The fifth and final installment of a breathtaking fantasy romance series, perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Jennifer L. Armentrout, and Miranda Honfleur. If you liked the world of Game of Thrones and the savagery of the hit TV show Vikings, you’ll love this epic series by Denali Day.

An interconnected standalone with no cliffhanger and no cheating. Guaranteed HEA.

Weak, pathetic TSTL heroine. PATHETIC.

I kept thinking we'd see some growth from the h. That at some point she'd stand up for herself and not tolerate being treated like sh*t but the meaner he was and the more he projected his inner turmoil and self hatred at her, the needier and stupidly/pathetically OTT nice she became. Like instead of our h getting the breakthrough growth of learning her own damn worth and hitting the road on H making him grovel. Instead it seems like the h is just getting ever increasingly pathetic so that at some point it'll break down H finally and he'll stop directing every negative feeling he has at her. Haven't finished yet. Trying to hang on because I'm finding it hard to believe this author is the same who wrote the other h in this series. I was nervous when I went into the first. Sounded like a recipe for a dumpster fire of misogynistic patriarchal bs but I was sooo pleasantly surprised to see that it was not. The misogynistic traditions were addressed and broken down in a way that made you understand there was equal respect. This one, however... not the case. lose quote: no one else had spoken to her because it was custom that no one be allowed to speak to a recently claimed bride without permission from her husband. (TF DID I JUST READ) but no fear, I thought. She's going to quickly follow this point with how utterly absurd that is.... only she didn't. There were several other instances like this regarding the man being an authority figure to the woman that were treated like an acceptable occurrence versus what she did in all the others, which was address it and acknowledge the absurdity and bs of it OR the H would be all like "yeah that's how great uncle rivgad the douchebagery sob, son of rivgad the greater douchebagery" did things but I think that' concept is utter bs boo and obviously I would never even think to expect this or try to enforce this/or anything. no enforcement here. we come to terms" but yeah that didn't happen here. It was everything I feared the series would be that it managed to not be... only to be now? The h is their whole entire plan. Literally she is the ONLY one who can save them and ONLY one who will execute anything on their mission...meanwhile when she speaks out in a meeting to advise she will only do it at night the H tells her she'd not allowed to speak because SHES a woman. gtfo . last book i read in this series had a female commander taking point over ALL warriors including their tribe. The H wanted to do murder to her fbff human male friend for trying to undermine her. Misogynistic behavior in the first book) featuring the CHIEF) and the last one I read (featuring his bro Magnus) was chopped down at every turn. Anytime some antiquated bs came up regarding a man's superiority or right to have authority over a woman came up it was cut down!

Would like to say that I've read all of the books in the series aside from 1 other. (not in order and was still able to follow) I absolutely loved every other book. I mean 5* all of them. They all had awesome, strong, kick ass heroines with pride and dignity who still managed to be sweet, loving, and adoring. This author Is a master of balancing her characters. Her heroines are (refer to above) amazing. Perfect blend of soft and strong. Heroes are the same. Best peak alpha levels while not going OTT. Strong, protective and still vulnerable, kind, considerate and loving. They're the perfect level of possessive to keep it healthy and not cross into toxic. It just takes such incredible skill to hit that balance each and every time and still have diverse characters who are all unique vs just recycling the same character and giving them different hair color.

I hated so much about the h here though. Sooooo much. Having said that, this wasn't bad writing. It just happens to be the kind of h that I LOATHE . To the extent that books with h like this are typically instant DNF for me. Instant. I simply cannot tolerate listening to some TSTL h degrade herself by chasing an H who's reluctant, dbagish, and constantly pushing her away, and here going further by being a complete and utter f**khead to the h. NOPE hard pass.

Now Sigvard is a character I've been in love with throughout the series. He is NOT bad guy. To me. Because I've read his back story. I've seen who he truly is....our h however has not. If I just met him in this book, I for sure would've DNF and railed that this h put up with his treatment. She had zero reason to have blind faith in him to start and even less *like we're in the negatives now* to continue to pour faith into him. Should've been a line at which time she was like f*** off f******. He put the responsibility of the entire world on her shoulders and treated her like a tool. Getting angry when she insists over and over that she's not ready. Thrusting her in front of people "look I stole the savior everything will be okay"

He lashed out on her constantly. There were multiple times initially that she genuinely feared he would kill her (of course WE know he'd never harm a woman.. but she DOES NOT) and what does she do?? Goes out of her way to ensure she doesn't hurt him of course. Cause duh! Nothing says; smart, strong, h one should admire whos a super good person like chosing to let a man murder you instead of using your power to brick the f**ker in the head.

I'm on ch.17 and I could list a dozen+ instances in which I wanted to smack the sh*t out of both of these idiots. I don't want to list them because it'll look like I'm ranting about this book and I'm not. In spite of wanting to do murder I still want to finish it because I really do love this authors story telling and writing.

I just hope that both are redeemed and SHE pushes him away, forcing him to GROVEL. I mean GROOOOVEL. And she can't just push him away. At this point she NEEDS TO LEAVE. Not because the nitwit is kidnapped by rapist puke face but because she stands up and decides she deserves morw. Something tells me that's not going to happen here and instead he'll be cpt save a ho and boom all is well...

Also I absolutely hate the whole "My gift is so terrible. it horror. it's hell itself. It only works against me" no homegirl, your dumba** choices are all of those things. You didn't ****slight spoiler****
cause the destruction of half a building, cause a ton of deaths, and bury your homies because of your gift..... you did all that because you decided to call up the pos who's sexually assaulted you since childhood because "your gift be evil though" 😒 Don't get me wrong....I 1000000% needed this woman to burn rubber on Sigvard. I needed to see her walk away from this mf to teach him a lesson and not be a pathetic standby. Simply....using your fu***ng gift or you know just running away in the night would've fuc**g accomplished that and cause....ZERO damage or casualties. But noooooo honey you call that pedophile rapist (who in your defense has manipulated tf out of you, which is no fault of your own) BUT when you actively acknowledge and are consciously aware that he is in fact assaulting and manipulating you and STILL call on him to return to prison instead of ya know, taking off on your own....I can't let you use the "she's been brainwashed and doesn't know any better" card because now you're just acting like a DAB. I mean, this was literally the only chance she's ever had in her life to be free of both men but instead she's like "whelp has to he one and I choose pedophile "

Also, you know how when someone blatantly finishes for compliments and it's super awkward for all in the vicinity to hear? That was this... only worse because our h was not just fishing but spear fishing for emotional reinforcement. He would say over and over he didn't want to mate her and It was just an obligation and then after giving her the silent treatment right before she's about to be force mated and then when she pushes and pushes and begs for a little crumb of attention being a huge jerk to her to which she immediately follows with asking him if it was "real " to him and if it "mattered at all to him who the mage ended up being". I just feel the cringe so hard.
HER: Does It matter to you and is this real to you.? Would it have matter if the mage was old and haggard.
him: no this is an obligation I carried out because it's the answer to my people's problems.
HER: He's being evasive. (you have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!?? SHES FOR SURE GONNA STFU NOW GET UP AND GO RIGHT? WRONG)
Still her: Do you think I'm miserable and haggard Sigvard?

Here's what drove me the most crazy....it was all handled (certainly by the heroine) that alllll of his treatment toward her was 100% acceptable as long as the reason he was treating her like trash was NOT that he didn't want her. She always reinforce "is this about his guilt or does he not want me". Because if it's about his guilt it's totally okay.

THE REASON IS IRRELEVANT. yes damaged souls can he beautiful in roms but only when the partner isn't allowing themselves to be a punching bag in the hopes that maybe. Possibly that person might show them a kind couple of minutes a month. F**k that noise. This is only executed successfully when the other partner makes it clear that they'll take some punches, be patient, and help them heal, but they won't be a receptor for the damaged one to spew all of their negativity on. Otherwise, it's just abuse and abuse is absurd regardless of WHY the abuser is doing it. Its not okay to beat your children because you were beat. Same exact concept applies to damaged partners. There's understanding that they're not where they need to be but they at least WANT to be there and aren't constantly projecting .

Yep. okay. I'm throwing in the towel. Made it to the claiming and weak b**ch of all weak bit**es she just became so pathetic I was honestly hoping dbag 1 showed up to put her out of our misery. Not sure if it's a firm DNF but I'm gonna need a min. Or forever to try and forgive this dumb ass pathetic heroine. The rage factor is compounded by the fact that all of a sudden out of nowhere the H has an epiphany and acts like a normal f**king human interacting with another f***ing human and its legit last for like 2 sentences and BOOM doughebag. Of course she'd accept that treatment and then the instant he'd feel bad and try to kiss her a** with some dumb sh*t she'd immediately treat him like it was kosher. I just can't. I've just accepted that there is LITERALLY nothing he can do that will make her stop being a moron and honestly already have a feeling how it's gonna end. Instead of true redemption and true groveling with that way this has gone, I'm pretty sure the rapist is going to kidnap her H will be all like "it's all my fault (and this time it'll ACTUALLY be his fault) and then he'll go to rescue her. some bad sh*ts gonna happen to him but ultimately he'll save her or she'll save him(because that might serve as her growth..ya know save the guy who pushed you back into the arms of a rapis) and that's going to be his "redemption". It's a huge pet peeves and even though I'm not sure that's what will happen the odd are in that endings favor and I hate when instead of H truly redeeming themself the author just makes them save the day and BOOM 75% of his treatment in the story is erased. All is well.

This is NOT a heroine with inner strength. This is a heroine who is strong but just not Bold or "in your face". This is a weak, pathetic portrayal of women and our dynamics in romantic relationships.

This woman has absolutely no pride. Whatsoever!!! Like none at all!!!! The kind of idiot to beg the person who inflicts their pain LITERALLY beg them not to leave them and please hold me. I swear to the universe if this stupid b**tch said "if you don't want me" one more time!!! IT DOES NOT MATTER if he's treating you like shit because he doesn't want you or if it's because he think you shouldn't want him. That DOES NOT CHANGE HIS ACTIONS TOWARDS YOU. By the time I DNF I honestly didn't give a sh*t if they both got offed by some soul stealing ghouls bit** there was never going to be a "too little too late" with this weak woman. Never be "you crossed a line I'm out" only "you just tore my soul out " H: rarw rarw scream at you make you cry hurt your feelings "but I want you" h: omg I love him so much I went lax in his arms. I've been blessed my wildest imaginings.
someone just punch her. Right in the throat.

Ohhhh this MF ACTUALLY VICTIM BLAMED HER FOR HER SEXUAL ASSAULT. JUST WHEN I THOUGHT I COULDNT HATE HIM ANYMORE. And a million times worse than his victim blaming...she replies to that by begging him to want her!

F*ck this whole entire book.

Awesome series ending

I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the others but it was good and helped put an awesome end to the series.

I hope there is a follow up to this series with finding and creating a new home maybe following the children growing into adults in the new home.

Book 5 had me little lost

I thoroughly enjoyed books 1-4, however I was a little lost on book 5. I was so excited to finally get to Sigvards story. It started out pretty good; as I expected it was his turn to steal a bride and the anticipation of getting caught and followed was exciting.
But the story quickly turned into a long, drawn out travel story of two people in a love, hate relationship. Both characters having continuous inner voices of self doubt, self pity, self hate, self loathing, lots of whining and yelling at each other. I'm not sure what happened to the storyline in this book, I was just waiting to get to the end because the monotony drug on and on.
The story redeems itself, and really gets exciting in the last few chapters and it finally felt like the other 4 books.

Overall, this book was ok for me. I recommend listening/reading it if you've already listened too or read the first 4 books. But don't expect that same thrill ride that the other books provided. I was pleased that Denali Day added all of the brothers and their wives into this book. And thank you Shane East....... no one can narrate like Shane East, he is so amazing!

I look forward to more of Denali Day books in the future.

2.5 ⭐️ Too long and Sigvard is a d**k

It's just too long and needed to be edited down. The plot is great, it just drags. I loved the FMC and Sigvard was my favorite, but quickly got old. He's a ball of angst and takes his trauma out on others, especially his love interest. He's a dick, and not in the fun way. The tension and chemistry between them was great but once she liked him, she was literally begging him to like her back. Sigvard's angst got a bit repetitive and I did DNF at about 80%

I read this immediately after reading book 1 and it worked just fine. It stands alone well.

Conclusion

All of the Denali Day books in this series are well written with wonderful world building, character development and exciting drama/action sustained throughout. Five brothers, five books with a cohesive story, with a HEA in each book and a beautiful conclusion that wraps up on a high feeling of HOPE. Well worth the credits.

loved it, wished it was longer LOL

Nice ending. I was happy to see how the book ended and how the characters grew. I liked that he was not so eagerly won over due to his brokenness.

I was expecting more from the Mages and Talmar, seeing as that there was a lot of discussion about how dangerous they were. But I know that wasn't necessarily the focus of the book and by expanding that side, I think it would have made the book too drawn-out and away from the true focus of the story.

looking forward to future books!

Amazing!!!!!

I hated the American accent as the book started but by the end I think this may have been one of, if not my favourite book/s in the series! They were all amazing and I’m just so sad they’re over, I’ve cried, smiled and laughed so much during these books, I’ve thoroughly loved them! I don’t know what I will read now, as I’ll have a book hangover from these for a while I think! I so hope she will write more and we will know what happens to them all next!
