Almost since the beginning of the series there has existed a smoldering tension between Sasha and her mentor Nero, but for all that their personal relationship, apart from a few meaningful moments, remained strangely distant, even though it has been obvious that there are felling on both sides. That changes with this installment. In the course of her mission to find and free her father, Sasha is in need of some rescuing herself and who other would show up than Nero. We also finally learn what type of Cognizant Nero is and his true nature is revealed in quite a spectacular fashion.
If I would criticize anything, then it is that Sasha’s actions often seem governed by impulse. She is rash and does not always consider all the consequences of her actions which leads to unnecessarily dire situations. But as she gets better at her seer abilities (to the point where she can put herself into a kind of trance and foresee all the different kinds of futures that her actions lead to), it becomes clear that knowing the future doesn’t make the decision process easier, but rather more difficult, as knowing the impact of each small variation in her behavior can affect the outcome, and not in a good way, adds a lot of pressure.
What I really like about this series is the type of different Cognizants/magical beings, many of whom are quite different from anything I read before. I am especially fascinated by the beings that have their roots in Russian folklore like the Baba Jaga, the Domovoi and the Bannik. And although all the allusions to (American) cultural artifacts such as stories, movies, tv-series and videogames may get on some readers’ nerves, they set my fan-girl heart aflutter and make my inner nerd screech in glee.
Although the book does not end in a cliffhanger as such, the final revelation is really a bombshell that I did not see coming. So once again I can’t wait for the next installment to hit bookstores!
Oh and there is alittle of that, which I have been waiting for!
The twist at the end will definitely get you by the way...you gotta read it and find the suprise that I found in it.
Top international reviews
There are elements that are revealed and concluded, which have been built up in previous books. There are developments on characters and their agendas which may or may not come as a surprise. There are new characters introduced (some which have been hinted at in previous books) and with them comes a potential new plot line. However, I felt like all of this was crammed into the book without any real developments where needed and sometimes made it difficult to follow. For example, just before embarking on a new adventure, Sasha attends orientation and finds out about a whole new category of animals and species thought to be extinct/unknown whereabouts. Then, big surprise, she encounters said species within the next 24 hours. It is numerous small elements like these that feel thrown in last minute just to make the story interesting but which have no real substance.
Overall, I would say this is more or a filler book, to tie off lose ends and take the plot in another direction. I just hope the next book gets back on track in line with the previous standard of creativity and description.
Sasha started out believing she was a human illusionist and is now a cognizant bound by the mandate. After finding out who her father is,she sets about a plan to rescue him by travelling through the gates and through many different, scary and life threatening worlds. But even on earth she's dodging bullets and fighting For her life. But she's getting better at seeing the future.
It was a thrilling book from start to finish. Can't wait to read book 6 in October.
Notre héroïne ne va pas avoir le temps de souffler dans ce roman. Entre découverte, complots, tentative d’assassinat et découverte de nouveaux monde, notre héroïne et ses amis auront vraiment de quoi faire ! Je ne veux pas en dire plus pour ne pas gâcher la lecture mais je peux vous dire que j’ai passé un super moment !
Et puis… AAAAh ce roman ! Tant de révélations ! J’ai adoré ! Oui parce qu’on découvre enfin ce qu’est réellement Nero et j’avoue que je ne m’attendais pas à ça ! La relation qu’ils ont évolue aussi. On découvre le père de Sasha mais aussi quelques infos sur sa mère et enfin on comprend mieux les desseins de Darian. Oui, vous voyez ? Beaucoup de choses ! En plus de ça, on en apprend un peu sur le passé de Nero et on sait que ça va maintenant impacter la suite de l’histoire aussi.
Je suis vraiment contente de voir comment les choses ont évolué dans ce roman et je suis très curieuse de lire la suite pour découvrir ce que l’auteur nous proposera par la suite !
