Well damn!!! That could have gone either way!!
So, without giving too much away…..
Audray is now Queen of the underworld!! Technically still a director, but she likes Queen better. She’s also the first ever female to rule the Underworld.
Jonas a dark/fallen angel, totally devoted to Audray. His previous life was full of misdeeds and adventure, and finally as a fallen angel for the past few centuries. Meeting Audray has been a rollercoaster, lust, fun, lust, dismemberment. But recently he’s been having feelings…. does he care for his Queen? Certainly, he’d die for her, but love? Not sure about that one.
Carl is a human professor, his love of history has put him in the firing line, being asked to dig up information on a landowner from the 17th century, he stumbles upon something he shouldn’t have.
Molly is the cute librarian that works in the reference section of the university that Carl works at. She’s had a crush on him forever, but she knows he won’t look at her, she’s too young for him. But she can look.
You can read the book without reading the first, but personally I wouldn’t, your going to miss out on two wonderful previous books, but also it gives you lots of background on Audray.
Now I was prepared to hate Audray on sight, my least favourite person in the whole of this series so far! Why? I hear you ask, well….. No I can’t, if I do, then I spoil the other books. But she really isn’t a nice person. So I did wonder how she would or could redeem herself?
When reading further into the book you get more of her past. It’s not been easy for her, so you now know why she gave up and became a dark angel. The thought of Jonas and Audray getting a happy ending was a little annoying, they both were really nasty in previous books. But they slowly grow on you. They have broken backgrounds, so it shapes you, so why shouldn’t they have a happy ending?And if they do commit to one another, love each other like they they are beginning to, what will it mean for the Queen of the underworld?
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed with this one. It felt rushed, it seemed less polished than the last two, and in some ways written by someone else!! The dialogue felt crass and cruder than the others. And for a while I did wonder why Carl and Molly were there. So what they doing there?
