Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Once she was a soldier for the Light, the prophesied savior who would decide the outcome of the eternal conflict raging unseen in the dark corners of her glittering hometown. Now Joanna Archer is just another mortal—still born of an impossible union of Shadow and Light . . . still hunted by both—and carrying the unborn child of a lover held captive by a depraved demon goddess. Joining forces with a band of rogue Shadow agents, Joanna's ready to storm the stronghold of her demonic foe, risking everything to enter this ghastly, godforsaken realm where the price of admission is her eternal soul. Because in a world that has stripped her of her power, identity, and fortune, Joanna has nothing left to lose—except her baby, her future, and the epic war poised to consume the city.

That being said, this was a really great ending to the series.
Angela Risner The Sassy Orange
Hunter Lorenzo is a character that every woman dreams about and to have Joanna fight to get him back from Solange was great.

This book made me laugh, cry and cringe with a rollercoaster ride of action and adventure.

Well....I think Vicki Pettersson did a fine job on this series. I really liked this last installment. A lot. The series as a whole, IMO is one of the more clever & well thought out that I've read. It also has a helluva' lot of heart.

It wasn't perfect by any means but it was completely solid, IMO.

The cons about this installment before I get to all the likes:

It was a little slow to start (but picked up round the 35-40% mark).

My main complaint is that sometimes I lost the action sequences. A bunch of times I didn't completely follow. Now, I'm not sure if it's b'c I was kind of on the edge of my seat so maybe I was reading too fast & therefore, missed some crucial descriptions or if she really didn't execute the action that well. My instinct was that she is so imaginative that it's actually almost too hard to completely describe, therefore imagine what she's created (which is kinda ironic given the theme of this book).

Last thing, to be honest I felt the battle at the end was a little anti-climatic.

However, I just really, really liked the way she ended the series & I really enjoy Pettersson's tone. They way she imparts philosophy without ending up sounding preachy or like a self help book is terrific. There's just simply a groundedness to her prose which I really like & value in an author.

I love Petterson's poignancy too. She never gets maudlin & more often than not find when she writes those moments, they're so articulate that they're beautiful. Her analogies are often close to perfect IMO & make you think from a different perspective which I appreciate.

The character's she gives voice to are always authentic & it helps so much b'c then message in the story resonates with me really well.

I remember when I read the first book to this series, The Scent of Shadows, back in 2007. It was so different; it really stood out from the bookshelves filled with Buffy Vampire slayers and Werewolf lovers, or vice versa. Not that there is anything wrong with either one of those things if done right but it was so refreshing to find a brand new world. In Pettersson's Urban Fantasy, there is not a Vampire, or a werewolf to be found, but there are all kinds of new crazy villains and screwed up heroes.

Set in the already loco world of Las Vegas, the series is mixed with two troops of supernaturally powerful people, both good and evil, whose powers came from their zodiac signs and who continuously fought each other, with the balance in Las Vegas always in jeopardy. The books also featured children who ran a comic bookstore and knew the truth about these superheroes.
They provided a sanctuary of sorts for either side and created comic books that told the truth about their activities. The Comic store kid's belief actually provided the power for the characters. The books were exciting, and while the violence and the action were extreme, in an almost Manga like way, the world of Signs of the Zodiac was refreshing in its creativity.

Joanna Archer was a seriously damaged protagonist, her entire life riddled with tragedy. A victim of a terrible assault, a stepfather never loved her and her mother abandoned her, she had two people she believed in and loved, her sister Olivia and her boyfriend.

So, the series is done and over with. How do I feel about this? Eh. Truthfully, I don't feel all that much. The series had its ups and downs for me but the overall feeling at the end is just a shrug. In relection I think I struggle with the non-tangible parts of the plot. A lot of the later books dealt with things I could not see or touch and I needed a fertile imagination to conjure up worlds like Midheaven and then visualize what goes on there. The idea of a tulpa or The Tulpa is conceptual and not something that works easily in my head since I'm more of a nuts and bolts, factual person. There's creativity and vision to the basic world-building in this series that escapes me. I love the concept of the Zodiac as superheroes, the Kairos, the conduits, etc and wish the series had stayed more in the here and now instead of the conceptual.

Johanna was always a fierce character but her back and forth between her own persona and Olivia got exhausting after a while. It was a relief in this final book to have that eliminated and she could finally be the person she was meant to be. Which turned out to be the whole point in the end. Her role as Kairos was to turn the world upside down, not by fitting what everyone else wanted but by truly finding herself, her ether, her essence. For me, I'll just be glad the bad guy is gone and skip examining the moral of the story too much. All in all, I'm glad I stuck it out and finished the series but I don't think I'll look back at it in the future.
