As with the other four books in this series, the entire tale is told by Alyssa, from her first person point of view. Once again we are drawn into her internal conflict - in order to defeat her enemies she needs more power, but each new ability is more terrifying than the last. As she struggles to maintain her morality, it is her love for Xavier that anchors her. Ironically, it is her guilt over past misdeeds that threatens to unravel it all and plunge her deeper into darkness. In this book, Xavier and Alyssa are finally honest with each other about their true feelings, which is a refreshing relief after so much tension and resistance in the previous books.
Throughout the series, we've seen glimpses of the hellish infernal dimension where Thoreau has trapped and enslaved countless humans and abnormals. In this book, we finally get to journey through it, and Holly's descriptions create a vivid picture. We see the horror, feel the immense heat, and resist its pull toward demonic selfishness right alongside Alyssa. I also enjoyed seeing the water park where the final battle goes down. It felt as though I was really there, climbing the structures, crawling underground, and witnessing the fear and carnage of that conflict. Once again Holly has created a masterpiece. I hope we'll get to visit this world again in a future series.
I volunteered to review an ARC of this novel.
If you've been reading this series all along then I guarantee you will love this book. If you're new to this series then you're in for a real treat - but really start with book one and read book by book (they're all excellent, as mentioned) building up before turning to this one. The impact will be so much more powerful then.
"Highly recommended" is a weak shadow of how strongly I recommend this book and series.
So Thoreau wants to awaken the final part of Alyssa so she can help him merge our world into the Infernal and end the world as we know it. She does not want that, but is forced to go into the Infernal to obtain the Blood Orb, where all Thoreau's contracts are held. Okay, no sweat, except btw she is going to SPOILER ALERT transform into her demon self. END SPOILER ALERT. Which is not only terrifying and traumatic, but she finds herself being very....demon-like. Not nice. And only Xavier's touch can keep it at bay. (I really liked that part).
But unfortunately, they weren't able to stop Thoreau from doing his ritual. BUT they can fight, and fight they do. Alyssa has an awesome moment of clarity, which I also loved, and they manage to SPOILER ALERT win after all. END SPOILER ALERT. But not without blood, sweat, and tears.
I really loved this book, and the ending kept me at the edge of my seat. I loved that Alyssa had to fight the other side of herself. I love that she had to make a choice.
GREAT ending to the series, and can't wait to see what's next.
The storyline of this s book goes places that you really don't expect giving this book an extremely thrilling story full of surprises and thrills. I think that is what makes this book the most addictive of the series! You will not be able to stop reading this story and not just because of the amazing storyline but also because if the descriptions that are so vivid and realistic in a fantasy world. This author is able to mix reality with the supernatural and make it somewhere that the reader never wants to leave!!!
You find out so much more about the characters in this book, the good and the bad, you see motivations and plans that have been laid for a long time as well as struggles for humanity and people accepting their fate and the reality if their lives!!
This really is an amazing book, you need to read the rest of the series before this book otherwise it won't make much sense plus the author's books are amazing and readers will enjoy the journey in every book!!!
