Carmella has had a rough time of it. The hybrid asara/witch finally has proper access to her magic and gaining in confidence in her recently discovered dragon shifter powers. She even has a great new job with the paranormal police. Too bad it all is about to hit the fan. Her one time possible love interest has actually been engaged for quite some time as a political power-match. He is all up for her as his mistress (as if). A string of missing persons is casting bad light on the department and her specifically. Her asara instructor is slowly becoming more than a friend then that too is sabotaged, her asara magic is going bonkers with her hormones practically in heat leading her to question herself. The head of the witches is refusing to see her as she keeps a dark secret about her real parents. Strange plot twists and unexpected betrayals are in store for our heroine in this installment of witchblood chronicles. And it is all leading up to one massive showdown. WAR.
PS: If you got a bit lost in my review with all its name dropping that’s because this is, after all, a third book. That’s why I strongly recommend reading the truly excellent prior two books first. You can indeed figure things out and totally enjoy this book without doing so (and I’d still give it 5 stars on a standalone reading basis), but it will (I promise) be so much more fun if you read the others first.
But we will start with the good. Carmella is a fun character when she is doing her job. I really liked the plot arc with the missing families and finding out the story behind the disappearances. I also think the villain is an interesting touch and appreciate the world building in this area. With Gods, Demi-Gods, witches and many other supernatural creatures running about it is a lot of fun and this is the part of the story I’m the most interested in.
Carmella is great at her job and I like the girl power of her and Mira together, looking for who is responsible for entire families disappearing and playing the bate. Carmella and her inner dragon are also a big area of interest for me too. How they are like two separate individuals and learning to cohabitate her body.
Now to what I didn’t like. The drama llama that was the relationship between Carmella/Vitra/Paimon. Arggg, it got a bit ridiculous. Vitra and Carmella have been hanging out for months and he is training her, building a friendship with her getting to know her. But Paimon is the forbidden fruit and the safe one to give your feelings to because one he is in a different realm and not even around and two he is engaged to someone else. There is no way that is going to happen. But still Carmella is all kinds of hung up on him and won’t let herself love Vitra because of it. So it becomes a tangles teenage hormone ridden mess. (view spoiler) *sigh* and yes I know that was a big run on sentence. It deserved to be.
Still I loved the double crosses that came in the story and I’m completely invested in the fight against the invading entity and the possible apocalypse of the horizon. I’m pretty sure that the entire love triangle is resolved not and Carmella knows what she wants but I’m thinking she has some stuff to prove and might try a little wooing of her own to get the man that I knew she should be with since book 2. I’m completely interested in how this will resolve so on to the final story in the series.
