“Hold on to your seats Darynda fans. She will sweep you off your feet yet again! I laughed, I cried and I love this series even more than before!” ~ Under the Covers
If you read the last book, Fifth Grave Past the Light, you know that the book had left a big question unanswered. Well, you’ll have that answered in this installment with a few twists and surprises. Hold on to your seats Darynda fans. She will sweep you off your feet yet again! I laughed, I cried and I love this series even more than before!
There are a few things that stood out for me in this book. First, Angel and his relationship with his mother. There was a brief focus on his story and I loved hearing more about him. Second is Cookie’s relationship with Ubie. It’s long overdue that someone makes a move. Of course, Charlie can’t take it anymore and will make a move on their behalf. It’s funny how she intervened to get the end result. Third is cookie’s daughter, Amber. She is so sweet and honestly, you think being around Charley would affect her in a bad way, but on the contrary, I think having Charley in her life is a good thing. I love that she is coming of age and that a little love story is blossoming in her life. And finally, Charley and Reyes’ relationship. It’s no doubt that Charley is getting strong in her abilities as a reaper. But now that there are no barriers between her and Reyes, it’s up to her to accept what she has in her life. I love that there was more of him in this book. As powerful as he is, and not that he can control Charley, but he just lets her be who she is. Accepts her for everything she is, flaws included. Not to mention how romantic and sexy this man is.
As far as the overarching plot, well, it’s not quite over yet but there is a slight twist of where the focus as far as the prophecy goes. I won’t say anymore that that because that will be a huge spoiler, but it is definitely a big twist.
This book does not have a cliff hanger but it will leave you surprised. Well, I certainly didn’t expect this turn of events in Charley’s life. But it leaves several questions left unanswered and now I’m dying to know where the story will go.
