Since the last book ended on quite a cliffhanger, I was extremely motivated to read this book. It was very hard for me to accept that the link between Jared and Kami was broken. Imagine how hard it must have been for the characters themselves to accept that. Usually, I hate it when love triangle dramas and romance takes over the precedence of the book but this book is sorcery. I was somehow, more hooked on it because of all that. I loved it. It has humor, it has sass, it made me want to get inside the book and knock some sense into Jared. I felt like the story was being dragged a bit. Rob and his evil team threatened Kami and gave some kind of a deadline for battle. Kami and her team begin preparing for the said battle with Lillian with occasional fights in between. And, the anticipated “battle” was very underwhelming. Still, for a middle book, the drag was expected. The characters and the writing were what me going most of the time.
I only have good things to say about this book. The writing is beautiful with total creepy mysterious vibes and witty characters. It had me laughing aloud at times. The concept of Jared and Kami hearing each other’s voice is explained brilliantly. I thought it would be all rainbows and unicorns but there were storms and rain. Kami and Jared have been talking to each other since they were born, literally. So, it would be natural that they would be each other’s best friend or support system. I know it would have been a total cliché if they had automatically started going out after meeting each other in real life. Which, it did not happen, but God, I wished it had. They are soooo meant to be together, but both of them are so afraid of messing it all up because their “connection” is the most valuable thing to both of them. She tries her best to run away from the possibility of their being together. Jared too is confused and afraid.
More like September quoteS of the month. Katy from the Lux series was such a relateable character. Her love of books was so great to read about which occured in various outbrusts throughout the book. Also, she had a book blog, which I did not have at the time I was reading the book, still it sounded so cool. The entire series was so awesome! 😀 So, I compiled a list of lines/ quotes from her that took #relateable to the next level for me. 😀 “I was always able to lose myself in reading. Books were a necessary escape I always gladly jumped into headfirst.” ― Jennifer L. Armentrout, Obsidian
First off, what a weird book. It has this strange vibe to it, almost like a pre apocalyptic vibe, even though there is no imminent danger to the world, by which I mean the fictional world of this book. So the vampires have come out. However, in this world, being a vampire is kind of like a disease- to some. Once a vampire’s venom gets inside a human’s body, they have 48 hours before the infection sets in. They start getting hungry for blood and prett-ay soon blood thirst gets started in full throttle, which lasts for 80 days. Once an infected person drinks human blood, they die and come alive as the undead, or vampire. Kind of like the vampires from Vampire diaries and they also burn in sunlight. However, there is no on/off switch for humanity. Once you turn into a vampire, it is permanently turned off. Also no magic or witches elements. It is hard to imagine but very realistic. Like I agree, this is probably exactly what would happen if the vampirism spiraled out of control.
So, this book picks up six months after the disastrous ending of This Savage Song. Kate has gone to a different city, Prosperity and begun hunting monsters. But Prosperity has like a different breed of monsters and they are also very rare and kept from the public’s knowledge. On the other hand, August has to take Leo’s place as the leader of FTF, and now he has no choice but to do the things that need to be done in times of war. To be the monster and to embrace it.
Okay... What a book. First thing, it has been a while since I have read a fantasy book, with a different world and different problems and different monsters. So, in the beginning, I was like what is this? Am I reading the first book? Does this not have a prequel? I was certain it did not have a prequel because I was waiting for the second book to release before I started reading it, still, I had to check a few times just to make sure.So get this, there are monsters, like real monsters some feed on blood and some feed on flesh and some feed on souls. The malachai drink blood, the corsai feed on flesh. The sunai feed on the souls of people who have sinned. (they only feed on the souls of sinners which appear red)
