But with Haven drunk on her new powers and carelessly putting them all at risk, their friendship becomes more and more strained. At the same time, Ever delves deeper into magick in order to get control over her enemy Roman and free Damen from his power. But when the spell she casts on Roman backfires, she’s bound to her deadliest enemy. Frantic to reverse the spell the moment the moon enters a new phase, she finds her efforts are fruitless—there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, one that propels her toward Roman. Desperate to break free of this terrible curse before Damen or the twins can discover what she’s done, she turns to Jude and delves deeper and deeper into dark magick, ultimately risking everything she knows and loves—including Damen.
I Give This ...
If you've made it this far in this series, I don't think you'll be surprised by any of the actions that take place except maybe the ending. I was afraid it was going to be the same old things again. Ever does spend most of the book acting as if she doesn't need anybodies help. But, in the end she actually surprised me and acted completely unselfishly. Although, I think if she would have told someone what she was doing instead of once again acting on her own the outcome could have been much different (but then again we likely wouldn't have two more books to look forward to).
I do have to say that Haven drove me crazy in this book. Her attitude reminded me a lot of when Drina was in the picture, but so much worse. She's the obnoxious friend who thinks everyone is out to get her and she's always right. I did think the twins get some closure in this one, but not really sure what their final purpose in the story might be. I still love Damen, but I'm beginning to think he is way to forgiving. I sometimes think Ever needs someone to put her in her place.
Overall, the events are interesting. I don't think there's any firm closure on anything. But, you can tell the story is reaching it's peek. I'll be looking for the next one when the library gets it in (although I'm sure I will be the one to request it lol).
