It was so heartbreaking. Learning bit by bit Zarek's story. Reliving his memories through his nightmares and through Astrid's dreams... I have no words for it. I nearly cried at those parts. To see the reason for Zarek's hatred and fury, the person behind the scary face.
After you guys read the book you'll see an entirely different person.
Again, I absolutely loved the mythical part of the book but the most I loved Zarek's P.O.V. It was a firsthand experience of his past and so far... I think he's suffered the most.
I feel like I say this after every review but it's the truth. Zarek is the outsider that nobody likes and everyone fears. He is the psychopath and the killer. At least that's how everyone sees him and his life gets even harder.
The way he thinks, the way he lives, it's sad and heartbreaking and I still can't gather my thoughts to write something meaningful. I'm just shocked by what I read it the book.
I mean... Zarek literally had a horrific childhood and then what happened after he got turned into a Dark-Hunter and then the exile in Alaska. It's awful...
I actually am a little scared to read the next one because as I said, I started to repeat myself saying that every next book is better and the characters have it the worst. After reading Zarek's story I expect something even worse for the next guy and I am not sure I want to see the horrors of his human life.
That's a bunch of guys with f****d up lives and I don't know how much worse can it get.
There was a little bit more about Acheron and that was awesome. I start to get answers to some of my questions about him but at the same time so many more pop up and I'm at loss again...
It's an amazing book, this one, and the series is unbelievably awesome so far. And even though I'm scared of starting the next one, I can't wait to start it!
