Why not 5 stars? While I did love the story, I didn't have as huge a book-hangover as I did with the first 2 books. It was still a fantastic end to a wonderful story!
POV ...third person
stand alone or series... part 3 of a trilogy *highly recommend reading 1 & 2 first
would I recommend it ... yes
did it give me a book hangover... slight
would I read it again... Yes
In this book, the enemy is a group of otherworldly beings of lycan origin who call themselves Zoan. They are shapeshifters who can also stop time. The Zoan arrived on earth through a portal that opened straight from the pits of Hell, and Alec must figure out how to kill them, and shut down the portal before the world is under attack. Alec possesses every talent, or power, ever gifted to the vampire race, and he must use all of them to defeat the Zoan--if he can catch them.
In the meantime, petrified Zoan are being awakened all over the earth and new portals are opening. It's another race-against-time if Alec, Cronin and their band of vamps will have any chance to save mankind.
This is a fantastic adventure, though I had a few struggles with the fast pace and the constant motion. Part of the plot hinges on understanding the portals, where they are and how they work, and this means Alec must leap his group of vamps all over the world--in rapid succession--to investigate potential portals. At times, I think I was getting leaping sickness. I didn't get the "physics" behind the portals and parts where it was described, of which there are a few, dragged for me.
That said, Alec is faced by a foe he cannot initially defeat; the Zoan are ancient and possess power greater than his. Cronin is very sincerely worried that this battle may be the last. And, he's partly right.Read more ›
The main idea of this book is that every good thing must be balanced by en evil one. In this case the creation of Alec as a vampire has elicited the release of some evil creatures. The portals being ancient circles.
Alec is almost all powerful with many unexplored abilities. Something that will be needed when this last battle is fought. We revisit old friends and add some new acquaintances. There is lots of leaping, so my head was spinning - who actually leapt whom? London, Paris, Rome and Moscow hide many secrets, not least the main churches there. The imagination of the author has really flourished in this story. I will definitely look twice at the next gargoyle I'll come across. I cannot tell much more without spoiling the fun for others.
Our English friend meets his fated during his visit to Moscow. And Alec experiences jealousy when they discover that there is an afterlife even for vampires. If there is something I would have liked to change is Cronin. In this book he is a pale version of the man we have encountered previously.
