Readers who love extraordinary characters will adore Mara and the twins . . . but it is the unforgiving villain that kept me turning the pages . . . just the way I did when I learned about Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter.

Ephemeral and Fleeting is the exciting third volume in The Oathtaker Series . . . Mara, Dixon, and their charges . . . return to the palace of the Select . . . to train their forces . . . Unfortunately, there is a traitor amongst them [and] . . . Mara and the twins are captured . . . Life and death, love and hate, peace and war . . . Not only will this book entertain you for many hours, you will also get some lessons about life out of it. If you haven't read Volumes 1 and 2 already, I would recommend you to start there. Thanks to the [summaries provided at the back of the book] you could forego this, but it would be an immense loss as the story is so well written! You wouldn't want to miss it if you love immersive fantasy novels!
