Solid 5/5 for me on this book, for sure.
Guys. I’m not gonna lie, I just finished this book and I’m kind of a wreck at the moment. People kept telling me the ending would get me but I can tell you I honestly did not see that coming. I mean… whyyyyy?!
I don’t want to give anything away, but I love that this book really did pick up right where the previous one left off. We’re given much back story to certain characters and events and we get to see more of some previous characters as well.
Clare really stepped up her game with this one and set things up so nicely for the final installment and I absolutely cannot wait (even though we’ve got a two year wait until that one).
I love Julian and Emma. So freaking much. I love the Blackthorns with all my heart and my heart breaks for Julian really never having the chance to be a kid. He’s strong and resilient and a damn good person though, I’ll give him that. His loyalty to his family is immeasurable.
I stretched this book out for a ridiculous amount of time and I’m so sad that it’s over now. Can’t wait to enter the world again though, and a reread is definitely in store.
