Ok. I just–I need a moment to talk about that scene, that incredible scene (not a spoiler, don’t worry), when Marcus used his persuasion power to save them all from where they were being held in the police station. I grew fond of Marcus over the course of this series, but my complete and total love for him as one of my favorite characters ever kind of snuck up on me. And this scene was his moment of glory. It’s only a couple paragraphs long, but it’s perfect. Perfect. And if you like Marcus, too, you’ll be happy to know he had a bigger role in this book.
Oh, and that other scene in the shower? *SPOILER ALERT* The one when Daniel and Dev admit their feelings?! I was practically giddy with excitement because FINALLY!!! *END SPOILER ALERT*
As for the rest of the book, it was on par with the rest of the series with all the same great things. The humor, the action, the emotion between Zoey, Daniel, and Dev, the supernatural-ness, and the unique cast of characters all came together one last time for a satisfying ending to the story.
Yes, there was a lot of sex. Yes, the characters seemed to solve all their problems in the bedroom or the shower. Yes, they couldn’t even keep it in their pants while they were running from bad guys. And sometimes I was a little annoyed by those things. But, if you can accept that certain aspect of these books are just meant to be fun and sexy (it is paranormal romance after all), it’s a really great paranormal romance series. Even as I was looking back through the books to write my reviews, I found myself getting sucked back in and re-reading whole sections. And some of the things that bothered me before kind of slid away as I noticed more depth to the scenes, maybe because I knew the characters better and therefore understood them and the significance of their actions.
Overall, it was a fun but emotional series with engaging plots and truly flawed but lovable characters who grew on me, and a series I can definitely see myself reading again in the future!
I’ve changed my rating to 4.5 because I really didn’t appreciate this book enough the first time around. Not only did it do a great a job with the depth of the characters, the emotions (I already knew exactly what was going to happen, and it still made a couple tears fall from my eyes— twice!), and the absolutely adorable relationships of all kinds, it was an amazing conclusion to the series. Each book before this one had a somewhat self-contained plot, but the overarching plot was being set up the whole time, and this book took all those details and things that were set in motion in all the other books and brought them together in a great and natural way.
Fans of Books 1-4 in Lexi Blake's Thieves Series. Anyone who likes books that are hilarious, emotional, and sexy all at once and anyone who likes complex characters who are flawed but still lovable.
