A good thirty to fifty percent of the book is the dialogue, mindless rutting, extreme violence, and revelations that we've mostly figured out. It wasn't necessary to hear from Bonnie or Mabel, both evil and seriously sick and psychotic women. The saying "For every good man... Same for women. The only thing that moved me was Kes, letting himself go and God rest it. I did care to know was what happened to Jasmine as well. The rest we'd already mostly figured out.
I was appalled that Jethro expects Nila to continue to wear the halo of doom around her neck for life and she wants to. Between that and the bloody bracelet and ring made out of a diamonds representing a long line of blood and sacrifice, she should have felt weighted down by horrifying disgust. Even I wanted to throw up. What does Jethro want to do? Rut again. It's not even romantic anymore and carries a lack of respect for the emotions behind the story.
Personally with what was revealed, I think Tex and Cut should have squared off and both died. I think the only ones that should have been left was Kes, Jaz, and Vaughn. When the others passed, that is when Kes should have awakened. I kind of despised even Jethro and Nila by the end for their ignorance and one-minded selfishness. Asked for my money back on the epilogue because I'm sure I can't stomach it. Two stars is for the time the writer invested in the mess.
Sorry I wasted my time and money.
It's hard for me to write this review because I really really wanted redemption after book five. Ms. Winters has in the past shown she has talent, storytelling ability and capability. Hoping and wishing against all odds that maybe just maybe book five was the exception not the rule of what Indebted series was to be became an awesome concept that couldn't be executed and fell flat.
I don't hate book six as I did book five, but the idea that this is one of the best dark books or series ever written is unconscionable. Internal inconsistencies among the books and story line and the inability of the story teller to keep track of the plot line and characters and know who did what and how things happened make it impossible to take anything said in the last two books and epilogue seriously (and yes I am a chump I even bought the epilogue).
Like the last seasons of many TV programs like those of Dallas, Ally McBeal and True Blood (who jump the shark before their last season) it's like this story exploded, plot disintegrated and editing didn't exist. Which is kind of scary that Ms. Winters thanks those who give her feedback, when clearly those who do are either not reading what she writes or are as confused as to what is happening that they rather ignore it and not tell her. Makes you wonder if the saying tell me who you hang around with and it tells me who you are is not just fantasy but reality.
There are so many inconsistencies in this book that even if you bite on the suspended reality of the Indebted universe that contemporary universe make no sense and has no correlation to the supposedly contemporary world that it exist in. I would be writing days on end of all that went wrong, but here are some of the major flaws in this story. SPOILERS AHEAD:
1. Emma Weaver wins the bad mother of the century award. She looks at the three babies she has as a teenager and decided by looking at them Nila will be the one who ends debt inheritance. How did this happen? Ms. Winters never explains why Emma who when she had the triplets and give the oldest in adoption knew she was going to be taken (maybe she was a witch and had the sight?) and did nothing. So did she know she was going to be taken or didn't she. It cannot be both sorry even if this story it’s all about “emotion” not logic. Oh and let's not forget the Weaver who seem tstl anyway were able to hide this from the all-powerful Hawks. Yeah right—oh and just to make sure to put the nail of the coffin to make sure she is crowned she writes Nila a letter. Really?????
2. After Daniel supposedly rapes Nila, Cut without talking to Daniel, watching a tape or witness takes Nila's word that Daniel finished the third debt. This is the man who runs an empire? Really how is this consistent with "everything needs to be documented"? So we are to believe Cut just leaves Africa and doesn't search for his heir. We truly are in Never Ever Neverland.
3. So we are also supposed to believe that the all-powerful Hawks who “are not afraid of anything” (they even have a big vault that holds documents of every single atrocity committed and with lots of evidence) but they cannot figure a way to import their diamonds from their mine. Another one for the "I must be too dumb scenario" to believe a family who has everyone in their pocket (including the Prime Minister and Crown) smuggles personally their merchandise. Completely without sense except to why not add another 5 chapters to an already confusing mess.
4. So did child protective services/social service (or whatever they are called in England in the 21st century) ever wonder why Jaz was paralyzed? Of course not the Hawks just could do anything and are untouchable, but couldn't figure out Jethro wasn't killed or that there was a third Weaver. Yes and this all makes sense because they are so powerful they don't dispose of bodies either.
5. And why did everyone die a convenient death. Really? Daniel injured and killed by Nila and then eaten by lion (no evidence of course conveniently for all), Bonnie expired just when she needed to die and naturally to boot because who really wants to kill the spawn from hell; but she is 90 after all, and then Cut, expires too. Oh and all of the sudden Bonnie was “married into the family” instead of as said by the author on her Facebook page at one point “Bonnie didn’t marry into the family she is an original Hawk she IS the family.” Now I gather this is another one of those emotion things—oh and let us not forget at some point she was referred as Bonnie Weaver. Let us not worry our pretty little heads about this.
6. And the book that was supposed to wrap it all up just leaves us with the question what was the whole purpose of the debts again? It was told so many ways and in such different scenarios, that at the end I could not figure out if anyone knew what the hell happened. And probably the author forgot too, what the debts and purpose are. But let's not forget endless amount of words are spent explaining why the Weavers "must sign a contract and accept their fate" of course this is enforceable by who knows whom (clearly not a court of law or country in which the Hawks have to smuggle goods into) of course this somewhere that exists in the Indebted la la land and even there it makes no sense.
The one good thing about this book (aside of the series ending) is that Nila finally stopped whining, being a space mat and spouting in her head and became somewhat a more likable character (wanting to keep the collar on aside (epilogue) which is creepy psyhco and just icky) she finally did something. Which is why I'm giving the book two stars instead of one.
I did have to mention that while I loved the premise and are not oppose to suspended reality each book the suspension increased (here are a few examples) making it into the incredible disbelief land that nowhere resembles any modern universe in the 21st century (and as a reviewer pointed out in book five that is probably why all people who know the difference between its’ and it’s; there, they're, and their; fantasy and fiction; too, two, and to; and no and know stopped reading ages ago)-
Queen versus King (who signed it)—just a mistake is the explanation I will bite it happens
Was the debt signed in the 1400 or the 1600 (details details who cares right it’s all about the story)
Milan is in Spain in this alternative Europe
Nila has a cellphone but instead of calling the police she is texting Kite and her brother
Generally okay except she still had a phone, never called for true help makes you wonder why didn’t she video something and you tube it, Instagram or twitter it.
This evidence gathering. Really they are criminals and record everything?
Oh and after running naked for her life she gave him oral sex. Yep just what a women fighting for her life who has no sexual experience will do with gusto.
And she is not a masochist but they have sex after he draws blood by whipping her 21 times. Yep.
Book three- when it started to get shaky..
The third debt in the chair and the drowning. So they drown her, she dies several times and then she has sex under the warm water a couple of hours later.
And then while beautifully written it's never really certain or clear who has the power to do what or what happens under the “magical document” if the Hawk doesn’t complete the “debts.”
And then the visit to the graves—so was it a grandmother or great grandmother? (And yes it makes a difference because of the age and the who would have been involved in the debts—but since it’s all about emotion who cares right). But I gather if you call a pear a zucchini it doesn’t matter because it’s healthy to eat them and those who dare to point out the difference are just too critical, negative and mean.
Why are the markings important? Oh yes the Hawks need to make sure to follow protocol (Sometimes? Maybe? Who knows? Or cares at the end as long as there is sex) but more evidence is important to collect.
So Nila leaves right and does nothing. Again doesn't take precautions, doesn’t contact the police, doesn't help her brother, doesn’t plan for the eventuality they will take her again and doesn't get a tracker to make sure they can find her.
And NO ONE can take the collar off (we can operate with robots on a heart without leaving scars reattach limbs but no one can figure out the collar made in medieval times). Really NO ONE! Maybe they can find a jewel thief or cut the damn diamonds and sell them. Or better yet collect the evidence against the Hawks.
They couldn't figure out how to dock the tape really to make it more believable? I mean nowadays kids can use iPhone and create presentations. But here they had to use the old tape. Stupidest thing ever Augh!!! and the good guys fell asleep. Just what one who is running for their life does.
Explanation of why they are powerful makes no sense (book six they still have to smuggle their diamonds so how powerful can they be they cannot even bribe English customs)
Completely misunderstanding of legal system, monarchy and democracy for no particular plot reason (setting aside the fact legal law firms as described in the book didn’t exist till the 1800)
Historically inaccurate with no attempt to understand geography or when diamonds were discovered, who discovered them or what country controlled them
Premise of how Hawks became powerful never truly explained just more useless words and lots of relatives that were all meshed together in a big pot with different names at random times
Jethro having sex with Nila again after she is tortured, fixing her hair because that broke her and then leaving her (this is never explained—OH YES—it’s the Will cannot let that one stand)
This is Jethro’s awesome plan.
Don’t even get me started on the nonsense of the "Will."
So at the end of the day what was an opportunity to create a wonderful A story that would be immortal became a comedy of errors worse than a D movie, however, all is easily accepted by those who like the “words” just because and thus a contemporary modern dark read doesn’t reflect any reality or connection to the 21st English or Italian or African countryside it’s supposed to happen in. Makes you wonder if all of this had been avoided if it happened in an alternative universe and why if emotion was supposed to be the driving force not just place it there instead of creating this mess. And while writers and artists deserve our upmost respect so do the readers deserve to be treated as if they can read and think.
