I love this series, now I’ve got in clear(ish!) in my head I can follow what’s happening so much better. Its still the personal parts and the personalities, rather than the battle scenes and plans that I enjoy best. I tend to skip the plans and battles, just skim reading them * blush* embarrassing…. but I do that with lots of books, wars and how they play out don’t move me but the people involved and what happens to them is really important to me.
Poor Allie; when I look back to book one she’s undergone such huge changes, both mentally and physically. Jon too has changed hugely, and in this book we see more of him and his thoughts. My heart breaks for him at one point – but there’s what came as a big surprise to me later in store for him 🙂 Allie and Revik finally get some time together and I loved that. They’ve had so many problems to overcome, Revik has undergone such a personality change but he feels more like the original Revik now. I love the interaction between him and Allie, they’re a well matched pair, and when we learn snippets from the past, such as when he was watching her when she thought she was just an “odd” human its really touching how he feels about her.
There’s the usual mix of plans working and plans going wrong, arguments and successes, Allie going out on a limb, Revik being his jealous self, more people out to get Allie, back stabbing, treachery, sometimes its hard to work out who really is on the “good” side, but finally I have worked out what the good side is!! It was great to keep up with some of the people I felt I was finally getting to know on a personal level, though even those are full of the unexpected at times. I love when Allie and Revik are together, that’s where their strength lies, and that’s what they need to do for themselves too, after all they seem to have spent more time apart than together, so to finally get them together through the whole book was a real treat. Plus of course it brings some hot sex scenes 🙂
Climatic ending too – not a real cliffhanger but something that’s been brewing for ages and has finally happened. It makes me wonder what JC has in store for the next book, this series is so full of the unexpected, so it’s hopeless trying to work it out in advance. Its a series that’s never dull, never predictable, incredibly complex and yet full of people and events that the reader can believe in. ….don’t try jumping in partway through – I think its one you need to read from book one to fully appreciate it.
Stars: as I said, this gets better and better so full five from me, and that’s from a type of read I never thought I’d enjoy!

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
