(This review may contain spoilers).
Having read the previous books in this series, I was really excited when I realised this one was coming out. I haven’t read it till now… but I pre-ordered it straight away.
It was cool to see Slade interacting with Magnus and Sylvia. I liked that Slade, despite having been put through hell by Odin (who I HATE with a passion) was still able to enjoy being around his mates. I really liked him and was glad to see he had the chance for happiness.
I liked seeing the very first scene in this book, where it’s shown how early on Magnus and Logan cared about the people they’re now with. I had a lot of sympathy for Sydney in this book, too. I especially liked her as a character and it was good to see that she found something she enjoyed doing and was good at, giving her more confidence. I found myself amused by her tiptoeing around Val… but also very much with an air of, ‘Get on with it, girl!’
I was glad to see there was less familiar/cliched phrasing in this book. Fredrica really triggered my suspicions, though. I had felt sorry fot her… much less so now, considering she’s trying to break up Kir, Logan and Jordan.
It was nice to see some of the other couples in this book and in particular Fenris and Jeff… who are probably my favourite couple. I have to say, though, the modern names make it really confusing to tell who’s who. I think it would be helpful to have a glossary of character names… otherwise I keep finding myself trying to figure out which twin is which.
I did like the hints about the future relationships in this book. I’m especially looking forward to how things will go with Jormungand… and it was pretty awesome to see Hel and Hodr, too. I would have liked to see more of Slade’s interactions with his father and brother, though.
I was disappointed that this book ended on a cliffhanger. It didn’t feel entirely finished and although I was happy to see that Sylvia had some issues due to being attracted to a man who was technically her stepson, I felt they were over with especially quickly. I am hoping that the next book will be published sooner than this one was.
