There are a few characters that I really wish were killed off, theyre the kind of people i would slap in real life, Winthrop being one of those, this is a guy that's weak, egotistical, and a horrible human being, and as much as I like franklin, there were some face palm moments where I just wanted to smack him upside the head and yell "what's wrong with you boy?!"
I still struggle with Ella, im just not liking her at all, as a mother myself im not sure this is how I would be in her situation, she seems a bit of a flake, and is only still alive because of Bray (although she did have a moment in the woods without him and had to kill some monsters...buuuut again it was William who actually gave her a chance)
I can't wait to actually know more about the location of this story, there were a few geographical clues, but I still couldn't quite pinpoint he setting, apart from the ancient city being coastal, and a big river running close to Brighton im still at a loss, this is really pissing me off (well done authors! Well played) hopefully we'll get some closure on that front, and I wouldn't mind more info on the begining of all this.. Maybe a stand alone novel of origins? The story of Lady and her group is giving me an itch I can't reach, and we all know how annoying that can be.. Keep writing and I'll keep reading!
To me, Oliver is the hero of this series. He is featured a fair amount, but not enough, along with Franklin, Fitzgerald, and Scholar Evans. We barely see Ella (who is still whiny and over-protective of William as ever), her children, and Bray, who to me is the most interesting character. He has morphed from totally mercenary and self-involved to someone who seems to care about the family now.
No, we see the increasing whackiness of Father Winthrip, over and over (really, how many scenes of the chanting and blood must we read?), demon battle scenes (hint: they get their hands, legs, heads, other part hacked off, and lots of people die), and the soldiers going here and there in very baffling descriptions of their deployments throughout battles; which, frankly, who cares about? They are all dying anyway.
There is not enough story about Jingo and Ivory. A few paragraphs, then off to another demon battle. More heads lopped off.
Tenbrook seems a throw-away character, in there for shock value.
So, how have these naked demons survived and proliferated throughout these seemingly harsh winters over 300 years? And what is the name of the Ancient City? Jingo says, "It is not important." Well, yeah, I think it is.
My usual complaints about poor grammar, typos, and misuse of common words. WOULD YOU FOLKS GET AN EDITOR, ALREADY? At least learn the difference between lie, lay, and laid. Good grief.
Thousands of demons are lurking everywhere and ready to attack, deserters are being sought, dangers are around every corner (including back in the city) and defenses are weak in spots. The battles between the troops and the demons are intense and seemingly non-stop. Father Winthrop and his rituals are bloody and his incantations grow more wild as the book progresses. I kept thinking that this is how battles used to take place many years ago...up close and personal.
The ending of this will make one gasp with an audible sigh. How and why in the world did that happen? The reader realizes the reasons but it is really difficult to accept. So, now we wait for the next book in this series.
Love that Jingo and delighted to learn a little more about his past in this one. The characters are well developed, action is fast and furious throughout and the plot flows smoothly.
Most highly recommended for multiple reasons.
Sorry this review isn't useful, other than to say I LOVE THIS SERIES!!
And now I will start the last book. And when it finishes, I'll be sad, as if a friend (maybe more like an acquaintance) died.
I hate when a good book series ends.
