Astra thinks that her Wizard Twins betrayed her and the planet.  With disappearances of the Queen and the Princess, everyone is on high alert and there is a lot of intrigue going on behind the scenes.  Torran and Rhydan had played a part in trying to find the traitor, but at what cost?

The third book in the Wizard Twins series, Twin Passions, is a little different from the first two, because it gives a lot of the background about the war between the light and dark.  There is also a lot of information about how the Sorceresses and the Wizards split into different societies with some rigid rules.  Even though I really liked that Ms. Leigh finally went into more detail about this, I would have also liked a little more about the relationship between the three.

Astra grew up knowing her mother wants her dead and then she overheard her Twins talking about bonding with another sorceress, so she has a lot of trust issues.  Despite all this, she realizes that Torran and Rhydan aren’t what they seem to be.  Once the three get together, they really burn up the pages.  The author created a wonderful joining ceremony for them, where there was a very big surprise for Astra.

There were a lot of secondary characters such as griffins, unicorns, other sorceresses and wizards and a dragon.  Not only did we get introduced to some of them, we learned that they gave a lot of advice to Astra, Torran and Rhydan.  The ending gives the reader a glimpse of the story coming in the next book.

While you don’t have to read Ménage a Magick and When Wizards Rule, I recommend that readers do but readers do need to read Twin Passions before reading the next book.
