My Rating: 5/5 Stars
I will not spoil anything. This book is not worth spoilers because you have to live it at a maximum intensity and assimilate the story at your pace. It was complex, with a lot of details as we are used to by Sylvain, but everything was pieced together in an amazing and flawless way.
As I said before when reviewing his work, nothing here is random, everything is precisely inserted into the story and made total sense to be there. This precision and complexity made the story a 5 stars one.
Beside the way the plot was described, the characters and relationship were magnificently presented to the reader. If you loved the heroes in the first and second books, now you will become their allies and keep your fingers crossed for them to have the happy ending they deserve.
Raven, as we are already used at, is amazing and more powerful then ever. Her love for William surpassed everything and although human, she was ready to fight every step of the way with and for him. I admired her so much for her courage and strong spirit, for her pure heart and feelings towards many people who didn’t deserved it. She was a lesson to be learn for many, especially for William, who managed to become someone completely different in this final book.
We definitely saw and evolution in William’s character, because he was acting not for himself, but for Raven. He was now following his heart and for me, seeing him this way was fantastic. As cliché as it might sound, love changed him and made him human. Although William always did the right thing for his beloved city, he now had a mission to protect Raven, and my heart was banging in my chest several time when he wanted to make the ultimate sacrifice for her.
Their love story was overwhelming and intense, like not many others I’ve read about. They are so different, in nature and perspective, but love each other so much. I felt like I was reading a paranormal version of Romeo and Juliet, because they were ready to sacrifice everything for being together and if that thing was not possible, they wanted to keep each other safe. They healed each other and accepted the difficulties that followed once giving in to their feelings. As we are used to, their love scenes were all consuming and it is impossible not to love this couple and connecting with them on all levels.
One thing that I admired at this story was the lack of predictability. This story is far from predictable, and only until you see the word “FIN” you can relax and just digest the story and the conclusions. I was thinking of another ending, but the writer had other plans in stored for us, thing that made me extremely happy and satisfied, because I’ve read something different.
