If you have been following this series since the beginning then you know that it was meant to be a trilogy, but Day stated that she couldn’t just let go of them because they had more of a story to tell. After the reading the last two books, I wasn’t sure if it was good for the series. The last two books had some interesting things, but it wasn’t to the point where I was excited that there were two more books. This book however made it all better.

Gideon has come a long way since the first book. I love the transformation that Gideon has come since the first book. There were times that I wished that Eva would leave him because he has too much going on and that she should be with someone who can help her. I know that she feels that he understands her better than most and maybe she does.

The thing that I loved the most about this book though is that Day points out some of the main thoughts that I had. For example, there were times when I’m like ‘it seems like Gideon is just with Eva for the sex’. Eva actually calls him out there for that. I love that Eva forces Gideon to acknowledge that he loves her for who she is not and not for the intimate parts of their relationship.

There are some twists to this story and I was upset with how it played out. It doesn’t start until about 60% through the book and it was a very interesting turn of events. I wished that this had started in like book 3 or something and was able to carry on through this book and the last. It would have definitely have made it better in my book and I would have liked to have seen more of this kind of storyline.

Now, when you read this book you need to know that it may not get to your expectations. In fact, it likely won’t. The best thing is to read this as the bow to the series. A nice way to end the way to tie up the series. There are going to be things that you don’t like. Yes, I wish there was more, but for the most part, I was ok with it. When I finished the book I felt at shall we say at peace with the series. I have read some reviews and fans were a little mad about the fact that nothing MAJOR happens in this book but I don’t think that was the point. The point was to get these characters to the point where they are going to be ok and the fans KNOW that they are going to be ok.

Rating: B-
