Once again I found myself liking Kiev and rooting for him. I really felt bad for him because of some of the things that happen to him, but I like how he’s changed since we first met him in The Shade of Vampire books and I like the direction he’s heading. I’m still not totally sold on Mona, I never really connected to her in the first book and again I found myself struggling to do so in this book. But if Kiev likes her than I’ll try to keep an open mind and see where this thing goes!
All in all, another good installment and I look forward to the next one and to the surprise release coming in December with a new Sofia/Derek book!
Kiev and Mona are such dark characters, and I've found it hard to become attached to them. However, during this book I've slowly began to understand how and why they've become this way, making them a little more appealing. Plus they are fighting hard to find redemption in themselves for the evil in which they have partaken.
I enjoy Bella Forrest's story telling, and that keeps me going back for more of her books. Her writing is crystal clear to comprehend, and the flow of the story keeps a great pace holding my interest in the characters next moves, without leaving me waiting too long.
My only dislike of this book is that I find it hard to empathise with these characters. They aren't the "good guys" and some of their acts are totally despicable, but they did keep me enthralled.
There is a little sexual frivolity in the story, but it is nice and clean leaving most of the details to your imagination.
It has an open ending that would normally be an issue for me, but all 3 books are available now, so I can forgive that. :-)
Overall, an interesting read with great imagery and story telling.
