“Those who say vengeance eats you up are wrong – it doesn’t, not if you do it right”
Oh my God, this book! I was left bloodthirsty and unsatisfied after my last DNF and this book gave me all I wanted in spades, sated my every bloody desire for reveange, blood, hot men and steamy scenes.
I am so damn glad that I got to know Dmitri and Honor. Their story deserved to be written, it is everything an epic story should be: spanning years and continents, lives ruined, bloodshed. EPIC. (You can take a girl from a box of marshmallow, but you can’t take marshmallow out of a girl!)
I liked Honor, she’s been through a brutal unimaginable nightmare and she was rebuilding herself step by step. She went from being “a little rabbit” to a fierce hunter with a help from her friends and Dmitri. “Don’t let the bastards bring you down” was basically her mantra. I think getting a contract from the Tower was the best thing that could have happened to her at that point, it gave her a necessary push.
Dmitri was a cold bastard in previous books and I still liked him, he proved me right to put my faith in him. Oh, how much is hidden behind that cold facade. Ruthless, arrogant and unrelenting is just one side of that coin.
“You sure I have a soul?”
“It might be battered and scarred, but it’s there.”
While there were two main Big Bads, effectively splitting the book in two storylines, I thought it was done masterfully. I expected nothing less from miss Singh (knocking on wood as to not jinx her literary talents). Past and present weaved perfectly together, never to be forced or mistreated. The only thing I couldn’t for the life of me understand, is why would Dmitri drive a red Ferrari. It is so not the car for him. Seriously, what on earth could he be compensating for?
Oh, and did you notice that in this series the most cruel and vile villains are women?
My inner psycho approves.
