Matheus believes that getting Quin back will help him deal with the pressures of a vampiric war, but his hopes crumble after his soulmate fails to remember him.
The tattered remnant of their mystical connection appears to drive Quin’s erratic suicidal behavior, threatening their bond and their very existence. While Matheus pines for his former love, a hurt and betrayed Alastair must watch the man he loves chase another. Feeling inadequate as a leader, Matheus searches for a way to make Quin remember him, no matter the cost.
With Apollonia is closing in on their home, he must act soon. And to make matters worse, his mortal?and pregnant?sister begrudgingly sets aside her contempt for vampires to ask his help to protect her unborn child from their insane father.
Terrified of losing Quin for good and of facing his father, Matheus faces a damning choice: kill the man he loves or attempt an untested ritual that might destroy them both.
Please say it ain’t so! Tell me that the series will continue or that there will be a spin-off involving Alastair. Or that the bad men in Europe will start some trouble in the states now that Matheus’ father is out of the picture. I refuse to believe that this might be the end!
However, if it is in fact the end to the series, then what a wonderful ending it is for a surprisingly spectacular series. I cannot say it enough, but I LOVE the dry humor/sarcasm that is Matheus. Not to mention the chemistry between Quinn and Matheus is all full of crazy angsty goodness. I find this story does a one-eighty from the first book. I went from wanting to strangle Matheus in the first book, to wanting to beat both in the second book and finally wanting to beat Quinn in the last book. Of course, in the end everything seemed to work out between the couple thank goodness! Unfortunately, some of the characters are not so lucky.
Here we say goodbye to some characters we have grown to know and like, maybe even love. The war with the hunters, Apollonia and Matheus’ father does eventually come to an end with the help of Matheus’ merry band of misfits. In addition, he is able to start the process of having a relationship with his sister Fletcher.
The author does such a wonderful job with this urban fantasy, and all the characters within. I really did end up falling in love with the sordid group of characters. Joan, Drew, Freddie, Thomas, Juliet, … The list goes on and on.
I mean how can you not fall in love with their witty sarcasm? With things like…..
How about instead of leaving, you get back into bed, and I’ll fuck you until you forget everything you ever knew about yourself, and you’re reborn, like a phoenix.
We should probably take away the sword. Let’s wait until she maims someone. Having the loyalty of a person that batshit crazy really helps win over the undecided.
For those of you that are wondering, yes these books need to be read in order. Seriously, there is no lag in time from one book to the next; so you’re forewarned. However, I promise you that you will not regret this series at all!
Yeah, this book is awesome, the series is awesome, and yes you should go buy it or KU it now! I Highly Recommend this series!
