Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on Evie's cheeks as she emerges from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling her dark peacoat tighter to her body, the wind lifts red tendrils of her hair. She walks slowly to the railing overlooking the water. She catches her first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes her shiver in dread. She finds it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it.

Is anyone else as excited about the arrival of Anya as I am? Because I am uber excited about her being there. I used to root for Russell rather than Reed. And get irritated with Evie because she ignored her souls' pull to Russell and would constantly blow him off. But Anya kind of solves that aspect.

Now we have to worry about this Xavier character. Idk how I feel about him yet. But you know, still 1 more book left.

And Brennus gets crazier and crazier in every book. But pretty girls always pull the crazies right?

Kaz Brekker and his crew have just pulled off a heist so daring even they didn't think they'd survive. But instead of divvying up a fat reward, they're right back to fighting for their lives. Double-crossed and badly weakened, the crew is low on resources, allies, and hope. As powerful forces from around the world descend on Ketterdam to root out the secrets of the dangerous drug known as jurda parem, old rivals and new enemies emerge to challenge Kaz's cunning and test the team's fragile loyalties.

Evie hangs her head in sorrow for just a moment when she knows she is truly alone. She feels like she's going to her execution, just as he had said. Then she moves forward again. She hops a fence of fieldstone and crosses a field dotted with Queen Anne's lace. Goose bumps rise on her arms as she passes the cluster of windmills that she's 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 her in visions.

Well, he made me like him. Dammit! I still preferred Russell. Reed was still too intense for me. And Evie is still a spoiled brat who listens to no one and irritates my soul!

All in all I still enjoyed the book! 😁😉

This was well written (of course, it's by Leigh Bardugo). I love the 3 different love stories (2 developing and 1gone sour and redeveloping). I love the journey they all go through. I love the different perspectives. And I love that this isn't over and I have another book to read.

Evie doesn't open her eyes so she can't see him, but she can smell him. He thickens the air she breathes, choking her with his scent... his aroma. She shivers. She has to resist. If she's not strong, then she will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects her even now. But now, she craves him and he knows that; he has been counting on her need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor her surrender. She's alive, but how much longer will it take until she begs him not to be?

From best-selling author Lexy Timms comes a motorcycle club romance that'll make you want to buy a Harley and fall in love all over again. Emily Rose Dougherty had only fallen in love once, in high school with a boy her parents didn't approve of. Emily saw through the tough-guy facade, his leather jacket and motorcycle. She gave her heart to him. An accident on Luke's motorcycle brought things to a screeching halt when her parents forbade her to see him again. Neither forgot about the other. Fast forward 10 years....

Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.

This book did not turn out the way I expected but I'm not surprised. Ms. Bartol always finds a way to throw me off when I think I have the mystery solved. Evie was cute and I liked her character. I loved Russel and was indifferent about Reed. Even tho she's drawn to him, I preferred Russel. Either way, this story was exciting and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
