The father I thought was dead is alive. Oh! Dorian, let's have sex.
My best friend tried to kill herself. Let's have sex.
The only parents I ever knew, now don't know me. Let's have sex.
The love of my life has run off with his ex and doesn't remember me. Nico, let's have sex? (This one was the only thing in the story that I didn't expect to happen...and it didn't. Which only made things even more awkward for me at the end.)
Geezus is there anything sex can't fix? Apparently not in this book.
And what about the biological father she'd been dying to meet up until this point? Hello, does his character still exist. Gabs was so worried about chasing after Dorian, yet again, that she literally had 1, yes that's all, one-on-one conversation with her father actually asking him about his past, her mother, and the life they had up until the point that she was killed. I honestly wish I wouldn't have read the last book so that the strong willed girl with out of this world power would still be the last impression I have of Gabs. It's not anymore, by the way. Obviously Gabs can only use her powers when Aurora is threatening to sleep with Dorian or steal him away from Gabs.
Above everything else though, I feel like my biggest problem with this story was that Gabs exhibited none of the "strengths" or "powers" she supposedly had during the big battle. She was there for all of two minutes before running off to chase after Dorian who consistently leaves her hanging whenever possible and says absolutely hurtful things to her. But no--that's not it either. The part I absolutely loathed the most was that once Gabs finally got her chance at Stavros, she was immediately choked out, almost to the point of death, and she wasn't even the one to put him down.
Wait, what? You mean to tell me the most powerful girl in the book, isn't strong enough to fight off the same character everyone has been fearing since the first book? Well hell, Stavros should have been the dark light, at least he knew what the hell to do with power. Not that he needed it when he fought her, he just told her Dorian didn't love her and then thoroughly choked her out. Disappointment doesn't even scratch the surface of how I feel at being so invested in a series and an author to be let down like this. I wouldn't recommend this story, and I won't be looking for anything else from this author.
The most powerful being on the planet. And going into the third book, she acknowledges her purpose is to rule them all.
Her maturity level plateau'd after book 2. She never became more than she was, in terms of emotional strength. She never developed convictions. Ive never seen so many tears, spread across so many pages. Its a wonder this chick wasnt hospitalized for dehydration every other week!
Everyone saves her. Constantly. Over. And. Over. She *never* develops the capability to save herself.
Yeah, she finally killed stavros. A severely weakened, mostly dead version of stavros. And ONLY after he offs Niko. The writing of this scene made it clear that at no point was Gabriella ever actually a match for Stavros.
And the reunion with Dorian at the last? All I could think was "can he shower first? Maybe brush his teeth?" He has spent the whole book wrapped around a sex demon. You know danged well he tapped that an hour ago. Skeeved me out.
And the brands on killing folks. Dorian/Niko have both slaughtered masses right? Why are they not covered? "Well, they are Dark, so are not effected by killing". Uh, no. Then why arent the Light folks covered with the brands?
The reversal was to bring forth the Light in Dorian, so we spend 3 books proving they all have light/dark in them. So why exactly is Gabs so different?
An italicized voice speaks to Gabs at a couple points (when shes hysterical and overwrought.... again). No followup on the voi e though. The Divine? Her inner cray? Nah, she admitted repeatedly that she us unable to calm herself and requires others to constantly hang around to do it for her.
Where did the slore leanings come from? She was not affiliated with the sex leanings. She was supposed to be a fighter, yeah? So why was she constantly.... CONSTANTLY trying to bang and booty call any available guy in the book? Dorians in Greece? Call Jared! Dorians held captive by Stavros? Call Niko! Heck, Dorian went to the corner store? Call. Anyone.
Gabrielle is weak. Weak in power. Weak in character. Weak in convictions. She began in mediocrity, and though it was promised she would rise out of it, she ended in mediocrity.
