But when all is said and done, you have to applaud Nora for creating a world that people care so much about and continuing to give us stories in that world. I look forward to the next entry in the series and hope to see more of the cast of characters that make this so special. One thing I have thought as the series has gone along is now that Eve and Roarke have faced their worst demons, what's next? Maybe it should be who is next, since Nora has created such a rich cast to pick from.
Deputy Banner brought a breath of fresh air into the book and played well off of our more established characters. In some ways he helped us see what we've become inured to through fresh eyes and brought a new perspective to our heroes' long-established routines so we don't get bored.
The most interesting choice I read in this book, however, rested upon the duality of love portrayed throughout between Roarke and Eve and the two unsubs, Ella-Loo and Darryl. Nothing could have been more stark, or at opposite ends of the spectrum, than these two couples and how they expressed their love for one another. On the one side you have the typical loving couple who care about each other and work together as a team with each other and the people around them. (And you know who I mean here!).
On the flip side, the other couple acts as if everything and everyone is there to serve them. I'm still up in the air as to whether they truly love one another or if it was merely a lust that united them over their killing spree, one that will burn out now that they've been caught as we know they will be. Eve's track record won't allow for anything less, especially with Roarke in her corner.
And that's the true beauty of this story because everything that happens is there to delineate and expand upon Eve's and Roarke's relationship with one another. That's why I keep reading the series. To watch their love expand and grow and give them the peace that they never had growing up. Everything else is just window dressing with an adrenaline fueled kick when Eve goes in to take down the bad guys.
