Each book I read in this series brings new pieces of Sara's and Armaeus' lives that capture me with their vivid details until I find my own world slipping away. We learn even more of their past and what brought them to where they are, until heartbreak intrudes to the present bringing my emotions to their knees. Watching them collide and separate over and over is thrilling rather than repetitious, which in and of itself is a tremendous feat on Ms Stark's part. I find I never know if I should root for them or hope they finally split!
Sara's time spent in Hell is educational in so far as seeing it from an authors point of view. I love it when an author finds a new and fresh way to describe something so old and overworked. Her interpretation of Hell is really entertaining. But it also gives one something to chew on as a new way to visualize a place we all feel we already know so well. Much less fire and brimstone and much more Supernatural's take on Heaven with less "everything you want" and more learning from your past. I really enjoyed her perspective. What happens to Sara there, however does make Hell an unpleasant place to visit. Particularly if you can get caught up in others' pasts to the point of feeling the pain yourself. Point in fact, what happens to her regarding Armaeus.
This time what is done to Sara's psyche because of Armaeus is hard to interpret as anything but cruel. Whether it stays that way or not in future books remains to be seen, but I find I don't like him very much right now. :-)
By gaining her own place in the world through the loss of one she found to be a comrade if not quite a friend, Sara can now work from her own base of power, or so I will assume since that must continue in the next books. It's good to see Sara gain something for herself for a change. I'm so looking forward to seeing how it is played out between her and Armaeus!
On to Aces Wilde! Once again, well done!
Sara is one of the more interesting characters you will read about in this Genre. She doesn't normally turn down any jobs she's approached for. She doesn't keep any of the profits for herself, and she works for others who have the money she needs to protect the Connected children from being used as cannon fodder by dark practitioners who will do anything to gain more magic. Sara's ability to stay under the radar while others are fighting a war on magic, has also come to an end. Too many people have started to ask questions about how Sara is able to do the things she does. Including certain Geisha's who see her speaking to a Sky Serpent.
Sara's escapades take her from Japan, where she searches for an artifact that is said to be a pure source of energy, to Shanghai and a meeting with one of Sara's main competitors in the arcane market; Annika Soo. Soo wants Sara to go into the bows of hell and retrieve her grandmothers lost pendant. Hell is apparently a popular place to dump artifacts, and who better than Sara, who uses tarot cards to lead her way? Once again, Sara surprises everyone involved by not only retrieving requested pendant, but doing other things that puzzles even the Magician who has been around for centuries. She also has a vision of what is being called Mortal Houses of Swords, Cups, Coins, and Staves.
But, the fun is only just beginning. With the balance of the Council swaying towards the dark side, the Magician decides to travel to hell to bring back the Hierophant, aka Archangel Michael from Hell where he has been living. Since all of the important characters in this series are based on esoteric tarot cards, The Hierophant is fifth Major Arcana card in most traditional Tarot decks. Sara gets her first glimpse of Michael in Hell. Stark's version of Hell is much more of a place of illusions, than that out of the bible. It is a place of what-ifs, and a place where you can't leave without leaving all your emotional baggage behind.
There is a whole lot of action, adventure, and a shocking new villain named Gamon who will definitely play a major role in what happens in the next installments. Trust me folks, you have to jump on the bandwagon and read this series. This series gets better and better as the series progresses. I am happy that Stark continues to churn out stories every few months. I look forward not having to wait an entire year before wondering what Sara and crew will do next. I think Sara is about to become an even more important player than she already is, and her relationship with the Magician will be tested to the limits.
