Stupendous conclusion to fantastic series. This is the stupendous concluding book in the series as Dracula rises and the final battle commences. Don’t expect twinkly ‘Twilight’ type vampires - in this many are the blood thirsty, vengeful, brutal creatures of Victorian novels. Also be wary of assuming there are clear cut sides to be taken, that all humans are good and all Vampires evil. The author has created a world where the characters are well rounded, complex and, when the final battle is over, the world will have to change and who will live or die you’ll just have to read the story to discover! There are multiple threads running throughout the story, creating a tapestry of opposites - love, loss, trust, deceit, loyalty and treason. It isn’t an easy read, it will leave you feeling uncomfortable at some of the dreadful decisions so-called ‘decent’ people make, making you question your own reactions in similar circumstances and the ending - wow! Like the earlier books in the series, this can be read as a standalone, but readers of the earlier books will have a greater understanding as things progress. Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
