Angela, and Holly, she uncovers a secret that might be the key to saving
the town. But with knowledge comes responsibility—and a painful choice.
A choice that will risk not only Kami’s life, but also the lives of
those she loves most.
Aaahhhhh, the ending. The end of a good series is always bittersweet. I loved reading these books. This series was so addictive.
said that, though, I will now say that this was not my favorite book in
the series. This book got a lot creepier and a lot darker and scarier
and weirder and I don't know if I liked it going in that direction at
all. Too many people died. So much death and creepy stuff.
was still strong but not nearly as funny. Yes, there were cute little
quirky Kami moments (her pet names for Jared were pretty hilarious) but
there weren't enough of those moments. I craved the Kami-ness to break
up the creepy stuff. The Rusty-ness helped because he's pretty
entertaining himself, but Rusty's story did not go how I wanted it to.
was a whole bunch of back and forth in this book. I like you, now I
don't want to be with you; Get away from the sorcerer's house, sneak
back in again; Unbeatable magical power, no power at all. And it all
repeated about five different times. It was very circular. I did not
like that so much. Where in the first book I felt like Brennan had very
carefully planned out the whole story, the second and third books felt
like they were hastily planned out to fill in two more books in order to
create a series. The first was SO GOOD! The plot, the reveal,
everything that happened lead to a conclusion that I did not guess at
all! The second two books were completely obvious as to be perfectly
predictable. I knew exactly what was going to happen. In some ways that
was nice because I liked what happened (except for Rusty) but I like to
be surprised. A good twist at the end of a book earns a whole extra
Why did no one just kill Rob when he started going crazy? I
realize all the characters involved were all-around nice people who
didn't want to off anyone, but human sacrifice and what-not? I mean,
Jared was infuriating most of the time and the only
reason I could find that he acted so was because Brennan felt the story
needed some added drama. Personally, I would have liked more kissing.
Making out is much preferable to drama, in my humble opinion.
was still quite entertaining and I loved the fact that Angela was not a
stereotypical lesbian. That said, I knew where the Angela/Holly
storyline would end up but I wonder if that's how some people arrive in
gay relationships? (view spoiler)
in short, book one was amazing. Go read that. If you feel inclined to
keep reading the entire series I'm fine with that, too. I love the
characters and the general plot and all that went with it. This last
book, though, got creepy and weird and a bit repetitive and there's no
way at all I would recommend it to anyone unless they loved the
characters from the beginning.
