Talk about the Demon of Lust!
Reviewed in the United States on February 26, 2020
So I'm agnostic about the whole William and Gillian thing, so I didn't care about him having a new love interest with Sunny, the unicorn shifter. I felt like I was able to read this book on its own merits without having that sort of baggage.
And that leaves me with a 4 star rating. I didn't love it but it was still a good book. There are other books in the series I absolutely love (Strider! Torin!), but this isn't one of them. To me, reading this was a necessary evil to wrap up William's character arch but I was never emotionally invested in him beforehand. I'm much more excited for Hades to have a book. I hope she runs him through a mean gauntlet.
All things being equal, 2 things bothered me in this book. One, we didn't get the secondary character/plot chapters like we have in nearly every other book. I'm sure some people hate them and didn't miss it but for me that's what gets me excited for the next book. Two, for how much I paid for this ebook I dang well expected to see the same quality of editing and proofing as a paperback. Sorely lacking! The first typo I can understand; it happens. But then there was another. And then another. And another. Missing words garbled some sentences but the final sour icing on the cake was a sentence that basically said "he carved her" rather then "he CRAVED her". Yep, and I paid $11.99 for that little gem of a sentence.
Oh, and the Demon of Lust reference above? At first I was uber bothered by William's over the top in lust for Sunny; it just seemed like too much. But then I thought about it and it makes sense for William's character. He has always been a creature of lust and carnal passion since the first time he was introduced. So while it was a little weird being in his head and hearing his thoughts about Sunny and smex over and over again, really, it fit with what we had been led to expect from him as a character.
So 4-ish stars. Check this one off your list, move on and look forward to the next one!
