Review: Spellbinder by Thea Harrison

From author Thea Harrison comes the latest story in the New York Times bestselling Moonshadow trilogy….
Kidnapped while on tour, musician Sidonie Martel is transported to the mystical land of Avalon. A human without magical ability, she is completely vulnerable to the deadly forces surrounding her.
When she defies her captors and refuses to share her music, an act of violent cruelty leaves her broken, her ability to play silenced, maybe forever. Her only hope is a whisper in the dark, gentle hands that offer healing, and a man who refuses to show her his face yet who offers advice she dare not ignore.
One of the most feared and powerful sorcerers in history, Morgan le Fae serves a Queen he despises, Isabeau of the Light Court. Once a famous bard and an advisor to kings, Morgan has been enslaved to Isabeau for hundreds of years, acting as enforcer and the commander of her deadly Hounds.
Sidonie’s music touches Morgan in places he had abandoned centuries ago, and her fiery spirit resurrects feelings he had believed long dead. For Sidonie, trapped in captivity, passion offers a comfort she cannot resist.
But Isabeau holds Morgan bound in magical chains that only Death can break. And in the court of a cruel, jealous Queen, the only thing that burns hotter than love is revenge…


I loved this book. Morgan was the bad guy in the last book but in this one he's the hero and one of the supposedly good ones Robin was the bad guy in this one. Sure he felt remorse but he did it anyway.. Just  goes to show it all depends on your perspective on whether someone is good or bad. 
Sidonie is a fantastic musician and tough smart cookie. I like that it is her music that awakens Morgan to something other than his thirst for revenge. 
I loved the ending of this book. It shows that love can conquer all even a Evil Fae Queen's magical control over Morgan with a little help from a God and Sidonie. I love this world that Ms Harrison built in this series and cannot wait until the next book. 
I give this book 5 stars and I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review and this is no way influenced my opinion of this book.
