My rating: 3 of 5 flames
This series has a really cool concept. I like the plots, the characters, even the bad guys are incredibly worthy opponents. Wow, the villain Ruth? She is one evil woman. I wish more villains were written like her.
What I don’t like is that it is soo overly wordy. In the first few pages, our hero Elijah, the greatest warrior, the fiercest of the fierce, is dying a horrible awful death and he waxes philosophical. For like 9 pages. Really? It happens a lot in this series- the over-analyzing and overly philosophical crap that is soo utterly tedious to read. It’s a shame since the storyline is so good.
Moving on, though to the wonderful stuff—Elijah and Siena are great together, I loved it once they actually had dialogue. It was a much better book than Gideon was. And I loved the characters. The plot of demons and shifters finding their soul mates in each other is causing a lot of dissension amongst the other Nightwalkers, and their road to love is no easy path. Bella and Jacob and Gideon and Legna are all still present, as is Noah, whose story is my most anticipated.
I also love…
…how Mary was killed by her own mother’s greed and arrogance at the end, but of course Ruth sees it as their fault, not hers. She also teleports out so we have a villain for the next book, which is called Damien.
Damien is an intriguing character, by the way, and I am so excited to read his book.
