Rachel Morgan’s come a long way from the clutzy runner of Dead Witch Walking. She’s faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She’s crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She’s lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.
But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price. That time is now.
To save Ivy’s soul and the rest of the living vampires, to keep the demonic ever after and our own world from destruction, Rachel Morgan will risk everything.
This book has the rich worldbuilding that we have come to expect, character-driven, well-paced and action-packed. But I was left with the feeling of disappointment. I wasn’t happy with the ending. Yes, everything is wrapped up neatly, and it reads like an ending, but it felt like something was missing. I can’t put my finger on what it is, but I felt underwhelmed.
It’s still a great book and one I recommend, especially if you’ve stuck with the series thus far, but it doesn’t live up to its predecessors in this phenomenal series.
