This book is suitable for Adult readers!!!
This is definitely a book worth reading. If you've read the previous books and thought they were awesome, wait to see just how amazing this one is.
So much new developments, a few new people, a new Big mystery and oh the ending.... broke my heart but the book was awesome!
“Nobody looks good in their darkest hours. But it's those hours that make us what we are.”
Again it all started with a personal message to the readers from Mac in her usual sarcastic tone that always makes me smile. But that was just about all the smiling I didn't for a long time. This book was the most serious of them all because of what happened in the end. The story was building up to that moment when hell broke loose and the panic started but I, too, am getting ahead of myself.
A big part of the story were the letters Mac got from an unknown sender. They contained pages from her sister's diary, where she's talking about the Lord Master and his control over her. That was a shock for Mac and it pissed her off and it saddened her because she in those pages she saw one very different Alina than the one she knew and she hadn't even noticed it before.
Mac met a new boy in this book. His name is Christian and he's a druid. Yep they exist and apparently they take a huge part in guarding our world from the UnSeelys. The Druids are reinforcing the barriers between the dimensions and they do it every year but something has been ruining their attempts in the last few years and now if they don't find a way to cast their spells this year on Samhain, the barriers will fall and out world will go to hell.. oh well.
“He’s so beautiful,” she said wistfully. “He’s like an angel.”
“Yep,” I agreed flatly. “The one that fell.”
We got to see more of V'lane too. I'm not really sure how I feel about him. He is hot as hell and all that but I'm a fan of Barrons more and I kind of want Mac to end up with him and V'lane is always there and I don't know what to think because Mac kind of likes him. His presence pisses her of to no end but she also knows that she can trust him when she's truly in danger. After all he needs her alive just as much as Barrons do so she knows the neither one of them is going to kill her.
“What are you?” I said irritably.
“In the Serengeti, Ms. Lane, I would be the cheetah. I’m stronger, smarter, faster, and hungrier than everything else out there. And I don’t apologize to the gazelle when I take it down.”
Of course we got to witness more of Mac- Barrons interactions and that is always much fun but I never get enough of them. He was away a lot and still keeping secrets but as always he got a way to find out everything Mac knew. His presence is both infuriating and incredibly intriguing. I can't get enough.
“Barrons was powerful, broodingly good-looking, insanely wealthy, frighteningly intelligent, and had exquisite taste, not to mention a hard body that emitted some kind of constant low-level charge. Bottom line: He was the stuff of heroes.
And psychotic killers.”
It's been a few weeks since I finished reading the book so I can't write a very excited review about it but I loved it. That much I remember because I know what happened in the end and even if the entire book sucked (which it DIDN'T) I would have loved in anyway because it was epic. Not good for the human population but epic.
I already started the next book and it's quite amazing so far. I hope everyone that gets to read this one enjoys it at least as much as I did.
I give it:
