In four hundred years he had never loved anyone like he loved her. There was no logic, no rational explanation save who she was. He would never find her equal again, and he knew it. He would live and die beside her. Whatever happened in the future, his calendar now matched hers, no matter what.
I can't think of enough superlatives to describe this trilogy. Epic in scale, rich in magic and fable and steeped in a world both familiar yet imaginative. The romance just about took my breath away while developing so gently yet profoundly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
