Soooo……I was super nervous to read books 7 & 8 in this series, because they’re not about changelings. While they have the changelings in them, Dev & Max are not changelings. I KNEW that was going to bug me, because I’m a big fan of the mating bond and what not. While this book did start out good……it just didn’t work out & got WAY TOO DRAMATIC.
Let’s focus on Dev first. I LOVED HIM! If I could have just read about him, I would have been one happy camper. On the downside, I kind of felt like it power was a huge disappointment. I mean……WHY talk about his power so much if he never really did anything with it? Again, classing Nalini Singh. Build something up SO MUCH and then don’t do anything with it AT ALL. It was frustrating.
As for Katya…well…I had to look up her name before I could write this paragraph. What does that really say about her? She was………super dramatic. From start to finish. I couldn’t stand her.
I did like some of the side plot moments, but there really weren’t that may of them /=
One thing that I ABSOULTEY COULDN’T STAND were the excerpts from Matthew’s mom to Matthew. They really had no basis to the story. I mean, we didn’t even MEET Matthew. They took away from the book and were a HUGE waste of time!
This is the first book in this series that I actually skimmed through some of the pages. I hate to say that……but this book turned SO dramatic! I was just over the drama.
Overall, this was my least favorite book in this series /=
