But, all that said - I am just fine with it NOT ending - because now that means there is another book to look forward to! Some things were tied up (Victoria! That's all I will say) while other new threads and characters were introduced. But I do not, as others have said, feel that Cressa and her cohorts are unneeded or unwelcome - I just can't wait to see how they tie into Talia's story. And, I trust the author enough to know that their connection WILL be shown one day and make sense.
The true mark of a wonderful book for me - I try NOT to rush through it, and won't let myself read too much in a day, because then it's over too quickly! So I found myself trying my best to S-T-R-E-T-C-H it out to make it last. And I loved every minute; of course my favorites are when Talia and Erik are finally reunited and all is right in the world again.
I received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for my honest opinion. (Although actually I had already bought the book when I received the ARC, but no bother!!)
I got all the feels from this book. I mean, Talia’s back!! I have seriously been waiting for this for years.
And Sophie Davis didn't let us down. I mean, Talia kicked butt, Erik was awesome and totally hot, and there was no way in hell I could have stopped reading until I finished the book. I mean, eating? Pshh… Not necessary.
My only complaint was how many alternate points of view there were. Maybe it was just me, but I’d finish a Talia point of view, and it would change to another person and I’d be so excited to get to the next Talia/Erik chapter that I skimmed the middle ones. He. Sorry. *guilty grin*
And the ending: Plot twist...s! I think my brain broke after reading this book. No, really, I was unable to form coherent sentences for a few minutes.
Basically, if I wasn't clear enough in the rest of my review, I loved this book. Obsessed over it, to be honest, for a few days… and you may be able to find a lot of purple and teal colored doodles in my notebooks. Maybe. Cough. Moving on…
Five stars for the emotional ride. I loved it.
I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The books raised questions of personal liberty exchanged for government protection; truth, reality, facts, and history being manipulated by the winner or those in control; prejudice; fear; what lengths we may go to for survival; science and research and possible perversion in its pursuit; friendship and betrayal. You don't have to spend your time analyzing it but those themes are there in the story of Talia seeking her future, growing up, falling in love, and pursuing revenge for her parents' murders. Books 1 and 5 were less enjoyable and Book 7 was my favorite.
While the plot for this book was decent, it was very predictable at times. If you’ve read the other books in the series, you knew who the villain was as soon as they were introduced, leaving the Cressa POV chapters lacking. This book also didn’t follow the overall theme of the other books in the series. It had multiple points of views and introductions of people with their own story lines. It seemed like the author wants you to adapt this new character as a main character when really is was just tedious adjusting to her and all the back and forth.
It was also frustrating that this book doesn’t pick up where the last book left off. There was such a major scene that ended the previous book, and everything that goes with it was just brushed over in this book. One of the biggest issues with this is you never see any real Talia/Erik interaction, which has become a key component of how both of them function.
Overall, the book, was good, but with all the editing errors and inconsistency of the general theme of the Talented Sage books, this didn’t leave me feeling like I got everything I wanted out of it, especially after such a LONG wait for it. It felt rushed. I wish there would have been More. I am hoping that in the next book, it will actually start where this one ends, because the skip over the ending...
