I loved the new direction that the series is taking. New packs are introduced, other characters that have made previous appearances are more fully fleshed out as ones from previous books make short but powerful cameos. In short, the incredible world building that has made this series so amazing continues. Now that Silence has fallen and Pure Psy defeated, the series is clearly moving in a new direction and it is with this book that all the pieces are moving into place. So, for me this felt like a transition book where it is all being set up and that means that inevitably the romance takes a back seat to the action. Aden was a drool worthy hero and I loved how the author turned the tables and made Zaira the tortured, damaged one afraid that she was incapable of love or deserving of being loved. I still had hard time connecting with her and being swept up in the romance. Every interaction between Aden and Zaira seemed to be interrupted by the external conflict and so I never felt connected to them. I also thought there was way too many cutesy kids running around. I love kids and I love to see previous couples starting families but in this case the kids were all new characters and less was definitely more. That being said I enjoyed this book and it is a must read for any fan of the series. Yes, the lack of steam and scorching, heart rending romance (thinking Heart of Obsidian ::sigh::) was a disappointment but the exciting new storyline kept me riveted and if anything this book is worth reading if only for the revelation of Aden' s true power as long time readers know Aden is no medic. The revelation, I thought was a little too far into the story but it was awesome. I can't wait for the next installment in the series.
I didn't really bond with them like I did with Vasic and Ivy, or even Sahara and Kaleb. Even though Zaira continued to go on and on about her overly possessive feelings toward Aden, and her jealousy about his relationship with others, and of course his feelings toward her - there was still no fire, no passion, no emotions, nothing but lukewarm actions. And I mean very lukewarm! Neither were ever really Silent, but even when they began to express emotions openly and publicly, it didn't stir my heart. The best way I can describe it is like, "Okay, let's kiss," and that's it.
I know characters are suppose to have their own personalities and attitudes, but give me a break here! For two people who have been attracted to each other since they were teenagers and couldn't express their emotions or desire for each other, there should have been fireworks! And their fireworks should have had fireworks!
The only parts of the book I really enjoyed was getting to meet Remi of Firerain, Miane and Malachai of Blacksea, and the Arrows discovering who was behind the assassination attempts on Nikita and Aden, and all the discord and chaos going on around them. And of course Aden leading his team into becoming a family free to express their emotions, and building their own homes away from their central control offices.
One reviewer stated that the author could have left out the part with Beatrice and Blake, and I agree. Whatever idea those few pages was trying to get across could have been done in another way that would have flowed better. I liked the reviewer's idea of Blake being a traitor who was giving information to the Coalition, and Beatrice not even being in the book.
I'm not going to tell you not to read the book, only to be aware that the passion and heat are missing, and that the little that is mentioned between the two characters is nothing to write home about.
