I really love this book series, but this one was my favorite yet
I really love this book series, but this one was my favorite yet, i think. It had some unexpected twists, which I loved, and it kept my attention the entire way through.
Mariah was a very admirable character. She's had an incredibly painful past but has come out on top. She's not a pushover. Her relationship with Phoenix was awesome to witness.
The mythology in these books and the way they are written are captivating. Sure, some aspects are a little cheesy, but I think that always comes with books about soul mates. I love that the villains aren't flat, bad guys. They have reasons behind what they do, and there is a chance at redemption. It's really great. Also, it's nice that, although there are a lot of references to Christianity, the author mentions that the Anabo are attracted to all places of holy worship. I'm glad that this book's religion is inclusive. Now for a non-white Anabo!
Also, I'm glad that sex didn't completely take over this book. I'll admit, when I heard the novel was classified as New Adult, I was a little worried it would have some pretty racy scenes. Mariah was a victim of sexual abuse, and the sex it did include seemed to be her moving past that. But no pages upon pages of detailed sex, like is in a lot of other NA books I've read!
Anyway, I enjoyed this book, and I'd recommend it to anyone who appreciates fantasy romance with a happy ending. I can't wait for the next one!

I love this series! This book was one of my favorites in the series. I look forward to more books in the series and more books by this author. I like the involvement of previous characters, and I really felt for the main characters. I liked that this story takes place when the previous story was also in motion; its good to see how events line up. This a unique series and I interested in where it ends up. Great read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
