I loved this book. It’s like a breath of fresh air after Dark Secret, which I don’t think is as bad anymore but it still isn’t my favorite book.
Natalya was just so sassy with everyone and I loved that she gave her lifemate a hard time, he needed it. Though, comparing him from Dark Destiny to now, he’s so different and I can’t tell if it’s because of his lifemate or not.
This book seemed to have it all. The couple spent enough time together that I felt a strong connection between them, sarcasm was in abundance, plenty of action and emotional tension to keep me happy.
Unfortunately this book only made me root harder for Gabrielle and Gary and I’m actually getting really nervous about Dark Promises. I’ve been shipping this couple since before I even knew what shipping was.
I don’t know if it’s because of how long the book was or what but I really felt like I had come home to the Carpathian mountains. Maybe it was all the tidbits referencing other books, like the grooves in the balcony railing where Mikhail first saw Raven in Dark Prince.
*Warning: Little spoiler*
All this talk bout Mikhail being the vessel of his people was really brought into evidence when the big fight happened, it was amazing to imagine him releasing his ultimate power, especially with him regenerating Gregori’s hand and killing Maxim with that light. I would love to learn more about it.
*Little spoiler ended*
This book has complex characters, a complex plot and a beautiful cover.
Thank you for reading my review.
