I loved all the characters in this book. Each one goes through their own struggles and comes out stronger. The personal growth the characters undergo is inspiring. To have hybrid demons go against their nature and fight together for one goal is astonishing. Emma is so inspiring. She takes whatever she is faced with head on no matter how scared she is. She is a heroine I would love my daughter to take after (fictional or not). I can't wait to see where the relationship will go for Conor and Emma. I also cried tears while reading this. The journey the characters endured came with loss and I was sad to see those characters go. It was also uplifting to see the remaining characters pick themselves up and carry on even in their sadness.
I loved this book from start to finish and can't wait for the next one in the series. If I could give this book 10 stars it would have them!
Labyrinth is the second book of the Acropolis series. It was two months after the hybrids' escape from the Acropolis. Connor left Emma in the SOS headquarters in Italy to help Dayton and Marcas battle Lucifer. He's confused and guilty because of what he did to free the hybrids. He's conflicted if he did the right thing so he just left without saying goodbye to Emma. A few weeks passed and Connor came back with Marcas as the new hybrid King. Marcas needs the hybrids' help to secure the new kingdom of hybrids. Specifically, he wants Emma to lead his army. The hybrids needs to learn how to become a unit in order to succeed but with their differences and Emma's lack of control of her powers, it seemed impossible. And there's the turmoil of Connor and Emma's cut-short romance.
Labyrinth is a really powerful novel. It's much better than the first. In this book we get to know more about the other hybrids, not just Emma which is really great. I loved these hybrids. In the first book, they were pretty much insignificant. It was always just about Emma and Connor, but in this second book we get to see the depths of the other characters. I love how each character is important and how R.K Ryals made them important and how she made me fall in love with them, flaws and their rough edges.
The plot was so excellently played out. There were times when I didn't expect things to turn out that way but they did and it was shocking and that made this book so good. It was completely unpredictable.
The pacing was good too. It wasn't hurried out or forced. Everything is simply exciting and played out well. The well played out turn of events made me hold my breath and kept me on the edge all through out.
The action in this book is phenomenal! It's well written that sometimes I forget to breathe while reading them.
As I said the characters are really endearing. I loved them all, especially the hybrids. The way they became a unit is simply fascinating. What they experienced together made them stronger as a unit and it's great. They were rough and flawed but also vulnerable, these things made me love them so much. I feel like exactly how Connor feels about the hybrids. Connor slowly sees the depths of the hybrids, not just Emma. He slowly sees them as not just half demons that's capable of evil but as humans too that's capable of good. That these hybrids crave peace and freedom too. They just want a home that they can call their own.
The romance between Connor and Emma is great too. The romance did not took over the whole plot which is nice. The romance was there but it's a process. It was gradual and natural. It wasn't forced out. I loved how Connor and Emma had to really find themselves first before going in too deep into a thoughtless relationship. I loved how R.K Ryals made the romance sensible and natural. I root for Emma and Connor because they deserve happiness.
Overall, I simply LOVE this book. It's perfect. Labyrinth is a nerve wracking, gut wrenching and an action packed adventure that's full of real emotions that a reader would feel to the depths of the reader's heart. It's simply amazing. If you're looking for all of these on your next read, pick up this book because this is for you and I swear you wouldn't regret it.
PS: I NEED THE NEXT BOOK LIKE I NEED AIR.
Wow, what an amazing journey our hybrid group goes through in this book. Danger and drama surround them, forcing them to come together...which isn't easy for demons, but these hybrids' human sides are working overtime as they band together as a unit to make it through the terrifying trials of the Labyrinth, at the end of which is the spear of destiny.
Just as in the first book, Conor Reinhardt is a golden hero, a man of conviction. He knows that he started this thing with the hybrids, and will go into Hell with them to see it through. Despite the tremendous cost to his own way of life and family, Conor is steadfast in his protection of the hybrids. In this book, he has had to not only deal with the consequences of things he's done in the past and come to peace over them, he also must come to terms with his feelings for Emma...and all the hyrbids for that matter. A person who was once so judgmental has learned about the shades of gray between black and white, and this revelation adds much depth to Conor's character, developing him in such a way that he was the true star of this book.
It was nice to see Emma learning more about her powers and abilities, as well as finding a family with her fellow hybrids. I hope in the next book, that she really gets her mojo on the powers front, because I'm ready to see her kick some ass!!!
The book is a roller coaster ride of emotions, full of deep insights revealed in the characters through the author's poetic narration. She deals with the topic of death and grieving so poignantly that I was brought to tears when friends were lost. Another powerful work by R.K. Ryals, and definitely one of her best by far!
