Sebastian and Olivia are part of a team hired to pack up a magical library that has several rare books that need special handling.  Sebastian is trying to find a way to keep from going blind, as well. 

The latest installment in the Elder Races series, The Wicked, brings some closure to the ongoing saga between Carling and Julian.  The crossing to the Other land, as well as an island, was a different approach than what has been seen in the other stories.

Sebastian is an owl Wyr, slowly losing his sight due to a curse he was given on a previous security job.  Olivia is excited to be one of those packing up the library.  When Sebastian and Olivia meet, it is almost an instant attraction that only grows as they spend time together. 

I really liked most of the secondary characters.  Of course, one has to be the bad guy and I was wondering exactly what his part would be especially since he made no bones about showing his animosity about Sebastian and later Olivia.  I had to laugh at Sebastian’s team though when they realized Sebastian and Olivia were an item.  

Even though I really enjoy reading this series, I would like to see more about the various races and their interactions with each other along with the stories.  Each of these stories can be read alone, though a few have connecting threads.
