Tegan’s Power. L.H.Cosway
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Well, it seems ages since I read the first book in the series – one of my free bargains from trawling the daily free books lists. ( Authors – if you wonder if that works – it does! I’ve loads of series now and individual books, where getting a free one has me hooked on an author or series. In this case I’ve bought every L.H.Cosway book since, apart from this ARC. I loved her contemporary romances too )
So finally we’re at the end of what’s been a well written, fast paced, very reasonably priced series. (This one is £2.45 for 265 pages) I’m pleased to know how it all turns out and yet – as always with a loved series – I’m sad to see the end. Still, I’m one of those people who love to re read books, so I can go through the whole series again, back to back, no waiting for next book! By far the best way to enjoy them IMO.
So, when we left Tegan and Ethan the city of Tribune was in crisis, Ethan had taken Tegan’s blood as he was so badly injured and yet needed to fight, and everyone was wondering just what he was going to do now he’s become Superpower Ethan. He doesn’t want to rule the city, but does want peace, and as a natural interim leader he and Tegan are furiously planning with the others how to deal with Theodore. Tegan is still recovering from donating such a lot of blood to Ethan, Finn and his gang are in a place of suspension, not knowing what to do or what will happen, the humans have become aware – and terrified – of the fact there are super-naturals living among them and then it’s discovered that a magic barrier has been erected round the city so no-one can leave. Crisis time! They need to find and kill Theodore before he devastates the city and its inhabitants even more. It’s crisis after crisis after crisis…
There’s some time to breathe between each crisis though – and we get to see small, daily life distractions and events where even though the city is in crisis daily life still needs to function in some way. I loved seeing things from Finns POV too. That worked well for me, I’ve always liked Finn, Ethan of course is the one for Tegan, but Finn – well we can’t help liking him too. Seeing things from his perspective put a different slant to some of his actions in the past, and it was interesting seeing him assess and regroup after the latest disaster. He’s reluctantly joined up with the vamps, and thinking back to his blind hatred of them at the start, we can see just what a learning curve the journey since then has been for them all. I loved Allora too – and was pleased for Finn finding someone new.
Its a great finish, wraps up all the lose ends in a neat and satisfactory way. I wasn’t left wondering “ but what about….” as everything was neatly brought together, or fell into place at the appropriate time. I’ve really, really enjoyed this series and I’m so pleased that even though this one is complete L.H has plans for a look at the city in the future 🙂 I look forward to that.
