Welcome back to The Shade...

Derek and Sofia are finally enjoying a well-deserved break. Staying at a resort with good food, sun and sea, Sofia is thrilled to witness Derek's re-introduction to the human world.

They would almost be mistaken for a normal young couple, if it were not for the red-eyed monster lurking in the shadows and watching their every move, waiting for his signal to pounce...

The never ending story...?

** spoiler alert ** This book was a little drawn out in places and somewhat boring at times... but other times it was page turning and action packed.

The time spent at the blood keep and the sanctuary were boring. I feel like everyone is switching sides or becoming something different. Hunters and vampires working together, vampires and witches turning into humans, humans turning into witches, an immune becoming a vampire... I mean, really?! This is turning into a complicated mess. Everyone at the shade is possessed or dead, the few survivors are with the hunters making deals.
Then after all that, Sophia gives birth only to be taken away by a witch and somehow turned into a vampire by the crazy lady from the blood keep... WHAT!?

Before I got to the last chapter I had planned on taking a break from the series for a bit, maybe binge reading was taking some of the excitement out of it... but then the massive cliffhanger hit me and I really want to know HOW THE HELL that happened! Sigh... on to the next book.

Speechless

What did you love best about A Gate of Night?

The ending. By far one of the most heartbreaking ending's. The cliff hanger had me buying the next book within the hour.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Derrick and Sofia are my favorite.

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

Sophia. Emma Galvin is very talented. I love Robert Petkoff, however he does not have a lot of storyline in this book.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When we learn of the tragedy that hits the Shade.

Any additional comments?

This series has had so many twist and turns, it's impossible to predict anything. That makes for an awesome read.

Emma Galvin is distracting

The main female voice sounds like a prepubescent boy which is very awkward in the romantic parts.

Frustrated

Thus series just goes on and on with no seemingly happy story for anyone. Ugh!!! I'm done with this series! At least Cassandra Clare and Stephenie Meyers had solid beginnings with great endings and kept the stories at trilogies.
Shade if Vampire just keeps running and running on and on....

WILL DEREK AND SOFIA EVER CATCH A BREAK?

Any additional comments?

**** may be spoilers ****

Finally things seem to be going well for Sofia and Derek. They finally get some much needed time together and away from the Shade, and all the evil that has been going on. Or so they thought.

Derek and Sofia bask in the sun for a while, enjoying Derek's life as a human. Sofia gets to introduce him to food, and dancing and all the things she has enjoyed in her life. Yet something is lurking in the shadows.

The Elders want Sofia, and the Ageless want Derek. Torn apart again, can Derek convince the ageless to tell him where Sofia is? Will Derek be able to find his precious wife before she delivers their children?

Ugh, can these two just be together already? Every time there seems to be a glimmer of hope some one or some thing comes in to take that hope away. Will Derek and Sofia be able to find a way to be together again, and what will happen to the children born to Sofia and Derek?

The series just keeps getting more and more interesting. The roller coaster seems to keep going and going. There has to be an end soon right? I am loving this story so much. Showing that true love doesn't come easy and always takes work. In Derek and Sofia's case, an insurmountable amount of work. Always fighting for survival can take a toll on a relationship.
