Three in one, forward and back
Here and gone, to deepest black
Silver blooms, swollen with child
Birth crimson globes, untethered wild
Life meets death where the sun meets the sea
Blood sacrifice, for you and for me.
It has all come down to this.
A prophecy, passed down through generations of MacRaes, tells of a blood sacrifice. A simple stone placed in an ancient dagger unleashes an army of hell transporters with glowing red eyes who have now come to exact that price.
In the epic finale of the Between series, Aiden and Lindsey will be tested in ways they could never have imagined. Visions of the past, from thousands of years ago when the Broch of Gurness in Orkney was whole, provide more questions than answers. But every secret will be revealed as the MacKinnons and MacRaes join forces to fight a battle they cannot hope to win.
About the Author
Cyndi Tefft lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest where the weather is overcast and rainy, much like the Highlands of Scotland. So she was right at home when she got the chance to visit Eilean Donan Castle in May 2010. A self-proclaimed Scot freak, she loved every bit about the trip to Scotland: the people, the kilts, the accents, the fish & chips, the haggis...well okay, not the haggis.

Tefft wraps up the series in highly satisfying fashion, with action in both America and Scotland, as well as some very cool flashbacks to ancient times - really ancient, like Bronze Age; much farther back than the mere 1700s of Aiden's original life. The Anthro major in me enjoyed that, while the romance reader in me continued to be moved by the sweet sets of couples in this one, with of course Lindsey and Aiden front and center. I was sympathetically amused by them too as they face some of their new challenges (such as a colicky baby, most horrifying creature of all). The supernatural struggles were especially well handled. I appreciated that it didn't become a global war involving the military, the clergy, the cops, etc., in which our heroes are lost in a sea of characters. The battle instead, though still potentially catastrophic, stayed between small groups of opposing forces, our heroes vs. our demons, and I think that worked much better. Hurray for a happy finale!
