War: Allie’s War Episodes 24-27, JC Andrijeski

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews.

This series has really surpised me, on the face of it I thought its not really my sort of read, but in fact I’ve loved it. I think its because that bond between Allie and Revik is so enduring, so innate and just feels as if it’s meant to be. Which of course according to the prophecy it is!!They don’t feel like a couple together just because of a prophecy though – they’re like two halves of a whole, and its only when they are together that they are at full strentgth. I enjoy seeing the personal sides of the other characters too – Jon especially, as Allie’s brother and in right from the start its been good seeing his journey. I still tend to skip the war sections – that’s just me and a persoanl view, I do that on all books * blush *. It’s people that are important to me, and thought this section is titled War, it had plenty to keep me glued to the kindle and wondering just what was going to happen next, and to who, and when….its a story that leads to more and more questions the more I read.
So Allie is wondering whats wrong with Revik, he seems to be acting a bit oddly. She’s got some problems with her light too, and thinking about what I’d read in a previous book I finally ( eventually – just before it was revealed) worked it out….I love that, how snippets of information, small clues in an earlier book, get picked up and run with on later epsiodes. Like I said, I love it when these two are togther, which they were for much of this book, and to add to that Jon and Wreg are developing their realtionship too….lots of sexy interludes once again. Seer sex is more than human sex, with so much of the emotional, mental and physical involved all at the same time. Its no wonder they go a bit crazy at times!
Throw in the problems they’ve got with the out of control disease spreading everywhere round the world, which seems to be blamed on Allie and her people, enemies from every corner, knowing that they simply must win, losing means disaster for humanity, the end of Allie and many of her people and goes against their purpose. Its a really stressful time for all of them and tempers are at the edge. Shadow though seems to be calling the shots, however hard they try. He’s got War on his side now and Ditrini, who they’ve captured, warns he’s coming for Allie next. This time I really felt for the first time that the chance they may not beat him was very, very real.
Its a great read again, full of drama and detail, intermixed with tiny persoanl moments that make these people seem so real. It reminds us that even when facing death people still need to eat, dream and make love. Seers are like the rest of us, and plans go wrong, disasters happen but they still need all the mundane side of living.

The end….ah that made me cry. Not since book four ( I think it was ) where Revik told Allie to leave ( and that was gut wrenching) have I felt so emotional about this book. Its rare I really get moved to tears, I need all that drama and deep emotional connection to my reading but actual tears..not often, but this series has done it twice now!
I’ve the next book ready to read and review and then…like everyone else I’m waiting for JC to write more, to lead us in to the finish. I’m not sure how many more books there are but it feels as though we’re on the home stretch now.
Stars: Again a fabulous read, full of all the things I love. Its a very dense novel to read – they all are, no light and fluffy read between other jobs this series. Its one the reader really needs to concentrate on. Its fabulously priced considering just how long each part is, 500 pages or so, and gives hours of magical reading, engrossed in another world.

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.
