I liked this book more than the others… but there were also some parts of the story that just hacked at me. I’ll mention a few of these (somewhat spoilery) items below.
Things I didn’t like:
• What happened to their family? It seemed way out of character for all of them to just ignore Portia because she was the quiet bookish type. Yes, they’re a family of action, but it seemed very much out of character for them to seem so (inadvertently) mean.
• In the same vein, what is up with the family all judging Tempest and his interest in Portia? They all loved the guy… until he turned his eyes onto Portia. What? Now he’s not good enough? Reputations should not define people or their ability to change.
• Seemed cliché for good girl Portia to fall for the bad boy biker type, but if I’m honest, I still enjoyed it. Especially because Tempest took the time to really listen to Portia and consider her thoughts before springing into action.
Things I loved:
• Tempest had me at this English accent – yowza! Plus, he’s a dragon. Dragons have quickly become my animal/shifter of choice.
• When Verus sent Portia back in time to talk to Tempest… “Please come gather my heart. I’m waiting for you.” Oh em gee – my heart soared when I read this chapter! Twenty years!!!
• Portia and Tempest were able to look past appearances and reputations and see into what was the best of each other. Their connection seemed super genuine; not to say the other couples were not, but I was more emotionally invested in Portia and Tempest’s story.
The BIG Question - this can’t be the last of the series, right? I mean… if Portia didn’t inherit her mother’s gift, then that means there is still a Scala Heir that needs to be born? Will that be a child of Maxon or Portia? Does Myla and Lincoln have another child; their prolonged lifespans should not exclude it? I just can’t believe that this is the end. But if it is, it was well worth the reading.
Portia is a dynamic character. She's socially awkward, especially since she's Marked to turn into a Void demon, so she hasn't really had that much hands-on experience with people. She prefers to read books and stay at home researching the Firmament. As the little sister, Maxon and her parents see her as such and rarely take her seriously. By the end of the book, Portia grows a spine and demands to be treated as an equal.
The plot is immediately introduced within the first chapter and suspense steadily increases from there.
Tempest is Portia's love interest. British, yes. Smooth as fck. Yes. Handsome? According to Portia yes. Oh, and he's also a greater demon and the emperor of Furonium. No big. Similar to Maxon, Tempest has a damaged past and he had coped with his trauma through women. But when the right girl comes into his life, everything changes. Depending on how you decide to look at Tempest, he is either a static or dynamic character. You'll understand what I mean by that when you read Portia.
The romance is sweet and the flirting is really cute, especially being told from Portia's point of view. The "L" word is dropped a bit too soon for my tastes, but hey, Portia and Tempest have gone through so much in such a short amount of time. I think it's perfectly acceptable. And to make the romance even better, there's a huge plot twist that ties everything together and makes the "fateful" meeting with Portia even more believable.
Now the ending... Endings are hard to do and really, they're sad no matter what you do. They're bittersweet if it's a happy ending or they're just sad if it's an unhappy ending. There is no such thing as the perfect ending since people either like it or don't. Christina Bauer surprised me though. The ending was absolutely perfect. Portia has resolved her internal conflicts, and the after-realms are no longer in immediate danger. She found the love of her life. And all of our favorite characters (Lincoln, Myla, Maxon, Lianna) are present and we get to see how much they've grown since we've read their stories. It's as bittersweet to the reader as it is to the characters. And the ending paragraph is cliche, but it wasn't cheesy. What I mean was that a certain phrase has been used plenty of times in romances, but it absolutely ended the book on a happy note and I was maybe... kind of... *whispers* fighting tears...
All in all. Congratulations, Christina Bauer. You've written another damn good book and you continue to surprise me in your creativity and use of words.
I can not give this book a bad review because it was not bad at all, just left me asking "Is that It?"
I loved Portia so much and Tempest, wow, he was PERFECT. I didn't expect such loveliness out of him. I thought he'll be an uberalpha but he was absolutely amazing. Everything a girl would wish for.
I love this series.
