Finally!! I’m finished with this series. This book was about 1/2 a step up from the other books.
This whole concept was really interesting but I think the execution was lacking. Overall, this book was more interesting than the others. As you know, my biggest issue with the previous books was the love interests. It was also that it’s all the author really focused on. I was just really annoyed. This book still focuses on the love interests but there’s a lot more action going on too.
I think that King had a hard time with the world building and it left me a little confused at times. I didn’t quite understand everything she was trying to do with the magic. I feel like she took on a little too much. It may be why I just couldn’t immerse myself into the actual story.
The characters were not much better in this book. I still couldn’t care for the alternating POV’s, especially Devon. I don’t know why but I just don’t like him! I can’t really “ship” he and Kalinda and it’s why I just don’t like him.
The pacing was good with this one but I feel like this book was just not necessary. It almost felt like a different book entirely. There’s a part that comes about with Kalinda and I was close to not finishing. There was nothing really that points to it in the previous books but then here it is.
Overall, I thought this was a bit better than the last 3 books, pacing wise. There was a little more emphasis on the actual plot than the love stories.
Thanks, to the publisher (Skyscape) and Netgalley for providing me with an e-ARC of this book.
