Well this novel was certainly the icing on top of the cake. It certainly left a lot unsaid and I’m not very pleased with that. Nor am I pleased with the fact that I have to wait a year for the next one to come out. And while I did enjoy this novel immensely, it still doesn’t make me any happier. Karen Marie Moning is the Queen of suspense and that’s exactly what we have here. So I guess I’ll just have to suck it up like a big girl and wait for the next one to come out in a year.
Mac is just having a very bad week. First, her friend is regutted multiple times for a hag. Then she turns invisible because of the Book, for how long she doesn’t know. And now she learns that Barrons has lied to her about Christian’s uncle. Who was somehow turned into one of the Nine by Ryodan. A task that they are to never do under any circumstances. So to sum it all up it’s a craptastic day in an even crappier week. But that’s not all because Jada is still hanging around and she’s not leaving anytime soon. Jada is determined to make her seeth-seers into a force to be reckoned with. Which they actually have become since Jada has returned and started training them. So now everything in Dublin is finally starting to wind down and return to normal. The fae aren’t killing people every day and are even living among humans again. Everything finally seems to be going kind of smoothly. That is, until a new Dublin Daily is printed and throws Mac for a loop. The news post states that Mac and Jada are being controlled by the Book, while the Nine are dangerous enemies looking to destroy them all. The Daily even comes with pictures of everyone too. So now on top of everything else that’s been happening they’re being hunted by everyone in Dublin. Both fae and humans are looking to get rid of them all. And they may not stop until they actually accomplish that.
This novel is just one of the many urban fantasy novels within this series. It has so much going for it that it truly is hard to put down. It has action, drama, adventure, and so much more within it. But of course we already know that, because it’s just one of Karen Marie Moning’s many novels. One that was very much so anticipated by many readers, and it certainly didn’t disappoint at all. It flowed together quite wonderfully and I’m actually rather sad that it’s over. The only good news about this is that I’ll still be able to read the next one within the series. So my final recommendation for this novel is actually quite simple. Just read the freaking series and this book if you haven’t already. You truly don’t know what you’re missing out on, because it’s certainly one of a kind.
