I've enjoyed the previous books in this series. This one, however, was not the same at all. It follows High School students in their life, peer struggles, with some supernatural thrown in. There was, eventually, a little interaction with characters in the other books. I struggled to get through it even though I could see where it would intersect with the story line, but, I was very disappointed overall. I hope the next book goes back to the main plot and people.
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
I was a little confused with this book, I don't know why I thought this was about Chris for at least a quarter of the way through the book. It was entertaining but it wasn't matching up with what I knew.
I should have read some of the comments before starting this book so I could put it into context. So yah! This is about Declan and Caeco which were the two kids Chris saved in the last book during Toni's rescue.
You could see a LOT of parallels between Declan and Chris, both were trying to hide themselves stay out of the spot light, both extremely powerful. Not on Chris's level yet but still lots of potential.
The author is probably moving to new protagonists having run out of interesting ways to challenge Christian and Tanya without opening the gates of hell directly. So how to continue the story without the main characters? Simple change main characters right? Well most authors will just end one protagonists arc or saga and call it good, then move on inside the same universe. Thankfully Mr. Conroe came up with a interesting method of shifting to or adding in new main characters. I don't know what they next book in the series holds as I have not yet read it..but I will. I have enjoyed this series immensely and hope the story continues for a good long while.
I got started using Audible to pass the time during my long commute for work and now I listen all of the time!
Same universe, but different characters. I like the overlap and the fresh perspective that this book gives of the world, but it still feels like the other novels.
Declan was the kind of character that I can relate to. He is a total techie.
Sometimes I had to remind myself that it is a dude who is narrating the Irish girls' accents.
I got the "Marathoner" badge on this book because every few minutes game me a question that I needed answered.
It was great the second time through as well!
The character development and combination of humor and drama throughout this fantasy series equals greatness.
still love the series, I was a little skeptical after this serious didn't really continue on with Tonya and Chris but still liked the introduction of these characters and I hope they get to play a bigger role with Chris and his journey..on to book 7 😊
If he had stuck to the original characters it would have been better and more enjoyable if he had to why not go back and look at Chris's teen years and see how he handled his powers then and how he grew up ...why introduce new characters?
Yes what is up with this new character bit? Is the author tired of the original characters?Is he out of storyline ideas? Is he trending towards the YA crowds? WHAT???! Is he trending toward the ROMANCE GENDRE?!! HELLO? DOESN'T HE KNOW.... IF IT WORKS, DON'T FIX IT!!
"Dreadful Irish accents"
I love this series. Unfortunately this book is oversupplied with that dubious Irish accent that only Americans seem to use. At one stage the 19 year old Galway girl's accent seem to drift towards England and London. Kind of ruined for me. Since I'm actually Irish that crappy pseudo accent always annoys me.
