I have reviewed all three books as they were published. My early enthusiasm has not been diminished by subsequent reading, which isn't something I can say of several better known series. I hope that Tahlia Newland has a strong vision of where she is going. There is a lot of promise that needs a very dynamic conclusion in the next book. Finishing what she has started is the trick that still has to be proven.
I started reading book three happy that Ariel's Mum was already safe. Oh my, that lady has had a tough life. Like mother, like daughter?
What I didn't like: While the book works well as a slower paced novel, sometimes it was a bit too slow for my liking and it felt like it was dragging.
Overall Review: I had to take a different approach when reading and reviewing this book because while the first two books were action-y and full of danger that was trying to get her while she was on the road, the dangers in this book were no less valuable to Ariel as she grows and learns about herself. I loved Namida in this book and what she does, and the development of Emot the demon as a character was an interesting one all in itself.
Recommend?: These books keep getting better the more you read, and so I'm definitely recommending you this one if you've read the first two!
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
It took me 12 days to finish this book. Some of that delay was craziness in my life, but most of the reason it took so long was because this book is a slow burn, peppered with small constant struggles, but no real 'climax'.
Other reviewers have said this book is one of huge personal growth for the protagonist, Ariel, and that is 100% true. The down side to this book being so much about her maturity is that it's not as exciting and adventurous as the previous two books.
The struggles Ariel faces mirror similar issues any young teen would face. The question of lust and losing oneself in daydreams and cravings are just the tip of the iceberg.
In this way, I feel this book delivers something that the first two books don't, and that is a realistic, albeit fantastically tinged, look at what goes on in a teens mind.
Once again, I felt the balance between the story and all the 'inner light' stuff was a little too focused on the inner light, which further removed me from an already slower read.
This issue aside, the story offers interesting insights into demons and the complexity of the world Tahlia has built here.
I particularly enjoyed Emot Sai in this one. His character evoked a strong emotional response from me. I hated him in one chapter and felt empathy for him in another. This takes considerable writing skill. Well done!
His particularly menacing physical appearance, coupled with manipulation and greed all wrapped up in one wicked package. A great antagonist if ever I read one.
Overall, I liked the story and I will finish the series, but it might take me a while.
I am happy to report that little Spud makes a cameo appearance and I was very excited to see him resurface, even if it was only for a short while :)
One thing I noticed:
10% Kelee's waistcoat changes from purple to blue.
