books but she stands on her own in the book. I really enjoyed this adventure and the new characters that were introduced. This is much
less about the werewolves and focuses more on the witches and added in the fey as well. The setting is south America this time which also
adds a nice twist. It's safe for teens because there is no sex a little swearing and violence only in fight scenes.
Overall I loved the progress of the story. The flow is there, and although this book is more serious in terms of plot, there were some beautiful moments.
Again, Claudia isn't a perfect character and I disagree with her throughout the book I felt that the author really did her justice. I'm not super happy with the way the romance turned out (it felt a little predictable), I think the author did what she felt was right. That's just a personal opinion so this book still gets 5 stars :).
Best bits: Claudia has been forced to stay with Luciana all her life, valued only for her magical power. Now on her own, she has to learn to go after what she wants and believe in herself. Lucas helps her with that, and with much more control than Dastien, since he is older. (How old IS he, anyway?) An idealized, perfect match, as per normal in the series. Fey Cosette is an intriguing bit of inigma.
Issues: Claudia's voice was not very different from Tessa's, which was a bit disappointing. Less swearing (Claudia doesn't approve, heh), but more weird witchery. Dark magic rituals complete with bloody animal sacrifices and demons rising are observed, and even the "white" magic involves collecting hair and a whole hand from a "sainted" corpse. Creepy.
I enjoy reading, and I've read my fair share of books, mostly fantasy/supernatural. I've not read a book yet that has had a strong Latina character before this series. Claudia loves her family and it show in this book, yes I was mad at her at first for putting her cousin through what she put her through (no spoilers here, if you haven't read the first 3 books). She has never left the safety of what she knows, never traveled, never had a boyfriend or any real education except for her witch craft. Yet she travels all the way to Peru by herself (yes she has a escort but she know it's her quest alone) to help find a way to save her twin brothers life, is almost killed and still keeps going strong never giving up.
I am also from Texas and not all of us have a strong accent. It's refreshing when the author doesn't exaggerate the accent just because the setting is in Tx and stereotype the lot. Not to mention the shutouts to some of Texas's best, Whatabuger, Blue Bell, and UTA.=)
