Plot: Two worlds are poised on the brink of a vicious war. By way of a staggering deception, Karou has taken control of the chimaera’s rebellion and is intent on steering its course away from dead-end vengeance. The future rests on her.
When the brutal angel emperor brings his army to the human world, Karou and Akiva are finally reunited – not in love, but in a tentative alliance against their common enemy. It is a twisted version of their long-ago dream, and they begin to hope that it might forge a way forward for their people. And, perhaps, for themselves. ( read more here )
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
** spoiler alert ** My Review:
I feel like it took me forever to finish this book but it’s finally done.
I have mixed feelings about it. While I enjoyed how the love story between Karou and Akiva developed, I felt that after the first half my interest dropped a bit. I think it’s because this last book was just too long. The last 100 pages I was really trying to stay focused and I am sure that I zoomed out many times. All is well when it ends well…I am done with the book and I am a bit relieved.
Karou, Akiva, Zuzana, Mik, Ziri, Liraz…wow…I feel like I am part of their lives and I felt their pain and struggles. The fact that they never gave up, no matter how impossible the fighting was is just inspiring. I was so happy for Ziri and Liraz…I mean, I really think that they are the cutest couple.
I must give this 4 out of 5 stars though, for reasons mentioned above.
Some, and then more…People with destinies shouldn’t make plans…Once upon a time, a girl went to see a monster menagerie where all the exhibits were dead…
