Cherished (Beholder #3) by Christina Bauer (Review)
The third installment in the Beholder series, Cherished continues the magical adventure of the powerful necromancer Elea, and the mysteriously powerful caster Rowan as they attempt to prevent the end of the world. After saving the necromancers from extinction in the previous novel, Elea and Rowan get sucked right back into the action as a prophesy predicts the fall of Rowans kingdom and his own ultimate death. Trying to unravel the mystery and to save Rowan, Elea get pulled right into the thick of things and beings another fight to survive and save those that she loves.
Through all of this, Elea will have to learn to trust and forgive, even after great lies and betrayal.
Similar to the other novels in the series, Cherished is an interesting and engaging story chock full of magic, betrayal and mystery. Elea and Rowan were once again both fun to read about and an engaging couple overall. The magic in this story is well developed and done. Readers can easily understand most of the limitations and rules to it, causing for a more concrete and well developed world. Plot wise, I would say that this was better then the last book in the series in some ways. It was a fresh new-ish adventure that readers could sink their teeth into. All in all, Cherished get the honest rating of FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!!!
