I wouldn’t recommend reading this book until the next one is out...
The wait for this book has been a LONG one, especially when you see other series by this author being published. You can’t help but want this series to be the priority, when your so invested. So waiting a year for a book is difficult. As a result to the long wait, it made this addition to the series so much more disappointing. I was not happy with what we got. We have waited so long for this story!? Honestly, it feels like the author just wrote it as she needed to, to tick of this series for another year, not because she is invested in this world.
My first issue with the book was that I found it to be very dark, doom and gloom. Where is the fun? The banter? The laugh? This book seemed to have zero happiness, it was sucked out. Bluebell couldn't save it, he only appeared to speak/ show up a handful of times. It wasn’t fun to read.
My second and main issue with this story was the main story line and how it was focussed on ONE hunt done by Elena, involving her brother in law. The main storyline of the angel wars, has not developed at all. The hunt which was the focus of this book wasn't that interesting and the investigating felt VERYYYYY dragged on. Honestly I didn’t care about this hunt, as it shouldn’t of been the focus. I wanted it to be done and kept getting frustrated nothing else was going on. The storyline about the health of Elena as an Angel, which was teased in the first place, was dragged on painfully slow and is second to this hunt story line. It also had no reasoning or explanation. The Archangel world and angels was extremely background and most of the time forgotten about. The hunt by Elena could of actually been made into a short extra book, or just skipped completely, it was that irrelevant. Why was it the focus? It added no value to this series and was just a huge filler.
In my opinion, this late on in the series, the overall story needs to progress more than what this book gave. Considering the wait, if you were not going to do that, at least give us another angel story that your fans have been waiting and asking for eg Aodhan and Bluebell.
My final issue with this book, was that when the storyline FINALLY went back to the casade and whats going to happen next, it was around 85% in. Some action ALMOST started and within a few pages it was suddenly over, with little detail and explanation. In a handful of short, quick chapters any action ended very quickly and abruptly. The hunt took so much of this book, the rest felt rushed. Then it all ends on a poor cliff hanger. I did not sign up for that very confusing cliff hanger, after waiting a year for this book and reading PAGES AND PAGES about a hunt I don’t care about. If you skipped the hunt, you wouldn’t need the cliff hanger, you would have many pages left. Honestly, I have no clue what happened over the last few chapters. This addition to the series left me confused and irritated, which is not a good feeling when finishing a book.
Im sad that I did not enjoy this book. If you compare this book to Archangels Legion, it really highlights how dull and miserable this book is. Im so gutted that Im so disappointed, I really was looking forward to it. I re-read the other books often and I can honestly say I will not be reading this again. Hopefully the next one is back to the original style, because at the moment I’m not looking forward to it. If it takes as long as this one and doesn’t deliver, I won’t be carrying on with this world. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next one is the last, as this Author gave me the impression in this book that she isn’t invested anymore.
** Like I said earlier, I would not recommend reading this book till the next one is out. I wish I had waited for reviews so I could be told that **
It was basically the same conversation about fighting for each other and dying together while Elena progressively got sicker and sicker until she basically turned into a caterpillar cacoon in the end. The only interesting part was the main story line about Harrison's attacker.
The normal interaction between the main characters was lac lustre and I normally love the world she's built and yet I didn't care .. I was actually looking forward to the book just being over already as I was bored.
Very weird and out there with all the annoying prophecy and strange metamorphosis crap. I would just skip it and read the next one.
This feels like a padding before the real action kicks off, but with waiting around a year per book now, it makes this especially disappointing. Possibly Nalini is no longer invested in this series of novels, certainly this is a shadow of the quality of the Psy/Changeling Trinity Series books, and she is only contracted for one further novel in this series now.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT - I don't want to give too much away for those yet to read the book but its the same conversations over and over again. How many times do we need to read about their dying love for each other, Elena closing her hand over her blade, the relationship with her dad, recurring nightmares (drip, drip, drip) etc etc etc. I'm sure you all get the point. Elena getting weaker and sicker - where did that idea come from? Is this a prophecy from a previous book, which I may have missed? At first I thought I had missed a book or a short story somewhere along the line. In the end both are cocooned and I am assuming reborn???? There was really no need for a cliff hanger although considering not much else happens in the book anyway, maybe this was the best way to keep committed readers interested? ? The only thing that kept the storyline going is the attack on the brother in law and Eleanor's hunt for the killer. I can handle the cliff hanger but when it makes no sense and is uncalled for its just annoying.
If I was new to this series and reading this book first, it would not encorage me to go back and read the rest which is such a shame. The normal interactions and conversation between the other characters was almost non existent and I feel thats what would grab new readers. I was really looking forward to this book, hoping that it would move the story along, so I am disappointed. Obviously I will read the next book, as I believe that its the final book in the series and hopefully should tie everything together (fingers crossed).
