Matters rapidly come to a head in this thrilling conclusion to this epic series. It seems a stretch that there are no losses of lives incurred on the side of the “good guys” (you’d think in a battle amongst various gods that at least one of Ari’s cherished loved ones would die) but it is a close call in a few cases. The story is written in a gripping style; the tiny oceans of calm nevertheless suffer ripples of anxiety. The main inner dialogues are in the voices of Ari and her would-be boyfriend Sebastian. Both of them are struggling with inner demons (literally, in both cases). This makes romance off the table, but the UST is high enough for us to feel the sparks flying between them.

Both are prone to brooding but the action-packed nature of the fight scenes keeps this book from sinking into boring mawkishness. This is a satisfying conclusion to this series—and yet the denouement is followed by hints that a continuation of this saga is highly likely. There are those pesky Blood Wars to prepare for, after all…

Ms. Keaton has set up her New 2 world very aptly and her fans are well advised to look out for any continuation of this fascinating series. Let’s hope she doesn’t keep them waiting too long.
