The world was changing, becoming.
I can tell you one thing about Karen Marie Moning: she's not playing games here. Yoda just said it.
First of all, how about that V'lane&Mac interviews? I finally understood what's going on. Why the walls were falling, the origin of the Unseelie, who was the Dark King and why he did what he did, what's the Beast and what role is almost everybody playing. Of course, one of the remain questions was and still is: what the hell is Barrons? but I'm not even mad. I appreciate how brilliant Moning was giving us a kickass start in the first chapters and how the excitement and suspense kept up 'till the very freaking end...
Dani, O'Duffy and Christian were fantastic additions to the series.Dani and O'Duffy were very likable and their stubbornness and courage would make them both excellent allies on the next installments. Christian has the potential to be even something more, just sayin'.
CJ and Mac's relationship is changing, I think after everything she went through in the second book, he is finally seeing her as a determined woman and not a whiny girl anymore. He's different around her, losing self-control and accepting her, I guess. But who knows? Barrons is not human so there's no way to really get him. I really liked the Voice training sessions. And the MacHalo scene was priceless...
"I smile sometimes. I even laughed about your... hat"
She's changing, she's accepting the darkness and loneliness of her reality and she's willing to do whatever it takes (cannibalism is on the list) to avenge her sister. Amazing how after three books our main character didn't forget the reason she's doing all this, not even with three hot men around, not even when life could be a little more easy if she just hid behind self-pity and fear.
“Who the fuck are you, Ms. Lane?”
Rage filled me. Rage at what had been done to her. Rage at him for bringing it up. The thought that no one could see or judge me was liberating. I swelled with grief and anger.
“Now tell me who you are.”
“Vengeance,” I said in a cold voice.
Finally, that ending. What am I supposed to do with my life now?
Or at least that's what I told myself. From day one she said, and let me quote it for you:
"When they are done with a woman, she's a mess. It gets in her blood. It takes a long time for her to recover-but at least she's alive. Which means a chance to fight another day. To help try to find a way to return our world to what it once was.
To send those Fae bastards back to whatever hell they came from."
And you know what? Deep down, I kinda knew it but that doesn't help me from the fact that what we fear the most happened and now she's broken... is she? What will happen now? The walls are down, she'll die for him, someone betrayed the side-seer and I wouldn't bet on Barrons' innocence, not even for all his hotness.
I'm so excited about book 4 and I can't wait for another 5 star party!
