Ah! Okay. I know I will get some flack for this, but I am a HUGE fan of Brennan. I think he is the BEST villain I have ever read. The way he is crafted is a work of art.
I wasn't the biggest fan of Evie in this book because I would have handled things differently, but that is the beauty of the book. You get to hate na delve the characters, but still sit by and just watch and read as everything plays out.
Then things get crazy.
Well, crazier then they were before.
New creatures are thrown into the mix and all of our favorites were really put to the test.
I had no idea where things were going and at the end of the book I was left mouth agape. I couldn't believe that Amy had done what she did and I just wanted more. More of all of it. I wanted to jump into this world and get lost with Evie. Fight with her. Save their family.
But alas, I could not. This is what make a great novel and this one was EPIC. It deserves the high ratings it gets.

I hang my head in sorrow for just a moment when I know I am truly alone. I feel like I’m going to my execution, just as he had said. Then I move forward again. I hop a fence of fieldstone and cross a field dotted with Queen Anne’s lace. Goose bumps rise on my arms as I pass the cluster of windmills that I have seen in a dream. The scent is sweet in the field though, not the scent of heat, like it had been when it was forced upon me in visions. I gaze down the hill, beyond the small, whitewashed house that I knew would be there. The church looms dark and grim with its rough-hewn, timber façade, capped by tall, oblong spires reaching to the sky. Black, ominous clouds have collected above the roofline, as if Heaven is showing me the way.
