A Secret To Die For, Sierra Dean


A Secret To Die For, Sierra Dean
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
Well, its always sad to get to the end of a loved series…and of course there are calls from many readers for more. Not me though, I’d rather re read all that’s gone, and enjoy it,than see a series strung out beyond its natural ending – go out on the top and that’s what Sierra has done here. I admit around books 5-6 I did start to lose the way, but then the series picked up pace and delivered the fabulous drama and romance we want. Lucas – he’s always tied with Holden as top choice for Secret. I just loved him in their early days, both so full of passion. When Lucas discovered about Secret’s Vampire side he didn’t roil away in horror as so many would, but just accepted it as part of her and that made me feel even more that he was right for her. When things started to go wrong for them and then the wedding fiasco I just couldn’t believe the Lucas I knew would do that. Still, he did….Holden, he gave indication he was interested in her right from an early book – can’t recall which one now – when they were out on a job,and he kissed Secret to disguise themselves as lovers from passers  by. There was far,far more than a gentle melding of lips, more a burning inferno blasting between them. He’s known Secret for years, always stood by her solidly and I think they’d be good together. Desmond has always been last choice for me, he just seemed so loving but not really the strong person she needs, and then when he left and let her down – that was it for me. Des, you were out….
Anyway, Sierra clearly has different thoughts to me  and its her book so…I’ll accept it!! Secret  needs all the strength the three can provide in this last adventure where the city has been invaded by …Zombies?? no, everyone says – they don’t exist – but the walking dead do,with the help of a gang who are on a mission.
We see so many old friends in this ending, and that wraps the story up so well for me. There was danger and high drama and then something would be said that made me laugh in the next moment. We learn who really has been pulling strings, what Calliope means by her enigmatic prophecies, just how strong the Fae king Aubrey’s power is ( I can’t call him a Fairy king – I just can’t. Fairies are tiny little winged creatures, sweet and gentle, and Aubrey is none of that! ) Secrets friends from the police are here, the main characters from the vampires including the strange and frightening Monica, and of course some of the top werewolves. It made me realise just how many different people we’ve met in the course of the series, ,and how much many of them, including Secret, have changed as the years have passed.
As susual the danger is real, solid and scary,and Secret needs all her skills and the backing of her gang to come through. There’s losses, I won’t say who but yes, it made me cry. Its really emotional at times with secret facing a horrific choice. The story in this part is full of the usual well written and played out drama, and the loose ends and snippets brought in from earlier books all tie togehter.
Stars: Five, a fantastic and satisfying finish, that answers so many queries brought up during the series.

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.
