4.5 stars This series, which features warring descendants of Fallen and Forgiven angels, has been complex and emotionally charged to the max. …The Secret is an amazing finale that showcases all of Hunter’s storytelling skills.
The Secret brings together everything you loved about The Scribe and The Singer and whipped them into a maelstrom of emotion; consummated through love, tragedy, and renewal. …Elizabeth Hunter has completely outdone herself on this novel, and I think this may be her best book to date.

Only when the darkness falls can you see the light of the stars.
p style=”text-align: left;”> For thousands of years, the scribes and singers of the Irin race have existed to protect humanity and guard the gifts of the Forgiven. They have lived in the shadows. They have kept their secrets.
But the Irin aren’t the only race with secrets.
Ava and Malachi have found each other, but wounds as deep as theirs don’t heal overnight. While the Irin world struggles to correct the power imbalance left by the Rending of the Irina, Malachi and Ava struggle to connect their past with their present.
The Fallen may scheme, but Ava has found her power and refuses to be an angel’s pawn. And while Malachi may have forgotten his history, the scribe’s relentless search for answers leads both him and his mate to the heart of the Irin power structure in Vienna, where knowledge is guarded more closely than gold and those with power will do anything to keep it.
Malachi and Ava have survived the darkness, but will they ever discover its secrets? A powerful cabal of the Fallen may hold the answers, but to surrender them, it wants the Irin race to finally face their enemies. Both those coming from the outside, and those raging within.
THE SECRET is the third book in the contemporary fantasy series, the Irin Chronicles, and the conclusion of Ava and Malachi’s journey.
