Posted on my blog:: Check it out.The Book Twins | YA & Adult reviews
Let me first say, when I first read this book I had just gotten into the series and read the first 3 books in an instant. But then, you know what? I had to wait over a year until this book and let me tell you --- I wasn't pleased at all. I was so very obsessed by that point that the thought of waiting so long displeased me to say the least.
This is the fourth installment to this amazing series by Karen Marie Moning. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, especially after that one hell of a cliffhanger that we were left off in Faefever, and boy was it insane.
The first page takes us back to the scene of the crime in Mac's POV, and the second chapter takes place with Dani -- since Mac is unable to respond at this present time.
When we come back to Mac, she isn't herself. We find out the damage that was done for her and just who her saviors were. There is one person in particular that will do anything to bring her back to herself, no matter what he or she does. It's something fans might swoon at, or some might just think and understand it's something that has to be done in order for Mac to get back to her super self, and the world the way he is... she is needed.
Mac goes through quite the journey during this book. If anything.. it just makes her stronger on the other side, and even she gains some interesting abilities that she might not have had before. The question is... where did they come from, and who or what is Mac turning into?
There are still millions of questions regarding Barrons, but we do find out some little bits of information where he is concerned, and it's one Mac didn't even see coming.
Mac soon finds herself involved with all sorts of people, including Barrons, Vlane, Rowena and the Sidhe-seers, Christian and even has an encounter or two of the mysterious Ryodan, who sounds mighty like Barrons does in the way he talks. Is there a connection?
Mac and Barron's relationship furthers along. Things change. Things progress, and when you get to the end of the book.. you feel like there is some sort of breakthrough between these two. Whether that's good or bad remains to be seen.
She still seems pretty in denial about how she feels about him.. We as readers could see it a mile off, but Mac on the other hand.. and even Barrons tend to be a little slower to understanding this.
There is of course a major cliffhanger and makes you crazy just to think this is how she chooses to end the book.
This book is one thrilling adventure to the next. Non stop action and exciting events that roll around. The world you find yourself in just gets more dangerous and exciting by the moment. And you'll start to wonder whether it can go back to normal.
The end also sets up for the finale, being the last book in the series.. It's been one hell of a ride.
