Rating: 5 stars
I seriously love Josie Jaffrey’s writing. This series took me by shock in the first book and now that I knew what to expect this time around, I was not disappointed!It’s been a long time since I’ve been into vampire books, and I’m 98.9% sure that I’m still over them beyond this series. Jaffrey gives the human/vampire dynamic a new twist that makes it fun and interesting. For instance, the romances in this book are something out of a very imaginative and creative mind! The different relationships between humans and vampires, vampire and vampires, etc etc is a lot different than the kind I’m used to seeing and I love it. All of the characters continue to be really well written, and we get to see more of some people who were on the sidelines in the last book. The story line is great and paced much differently than I expected it to be, but not in a bad way. Somehow, Jaffrey can drag out the plot lines without making the story itself drag.
I love that the book is split into two viewpoints from characters who have absolutely nothing to do with each other (until the last 10% of this book). I am so used to forced romantic relationships between male and female main characters and I’m really pleased that Jaffrey took a different route and even gives us some ship-able (though suspicious!!!) LGBTQ+ relationships. The story is a lot of action packed in with just enough love, lust, and non-cringey romance to make everything flow really well.
This series continues to amaze me and I think I’m dubbing it my favorite from 2018. Yeah, you know what, I am. This is my favorite 2018 series. I can’t wait to read the next one!
