I originally gave this book 4 stars for some strange reason. What on earth was I thinking?!?! This is a 5 star book without question. I have read it 3 times and plan to read many more time during my life. It really is that good. This book gives up the moment that we have all been waiting for - you know what I am talking about. Let me just say Chapters 4 and 5 - most fans know exactly what happens in those 2 chapters. I know I will always think of this book whenever I hear Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping" because that is simply put the best scene in a book EVER.
Once again, there is a lot going on in this book. Mac has been through a kind of hell that most people don't come back from. Mac comes back even stronger than she was before. The world is more of mess than it was in previous books and Mac is determined to work to change things. As I was reading the book this time, I did think that maybe Mac doesn't appreciate everything Barrons has done for her. Of course that might be due to the fact that I LOVE Barrons but seriously he keeps saving her and she seems to get mad because of it.
Strength wasn't about being able to do everything alone. Strength was know when to ask for help and not being to proud to do it.
In this book, we get to spend more time with characters we have spent time with in previous books: Dani, V'lane, Rowena, and really just about everyone else. The reasons why I hate Rowena are quite obvious during this book. She really is worse than many of the monsters in my opinion. This book brings us to a couple of new locations as well. We get to go into Ryodan's club which is quite the experience to say the least. Mac even spends some time in fairy.
Once again, I believe that everybody should read these books and they should probably be read more than once but what do I know I am a bit obsessive about it myself. This book does end in a cliffhanger so I do recommend having the whole series lined up once you start the first book. I waited to read this book and I had to wait a whole year to find out what happens with this cliffhanger. This book ended up being worth the wait and I can't wait to see where else Karen Marie Moning takes us.
