I made it clear I wasn’t overly fond of book 3. While I still think book 3 and 4 should have been merged, book 4 at least makes up for it. The characters we know and love continue to return. The story is revealed a little more.

As you’ve probably cum to expect by this point, especially if you read or listen to multiple books in this literary universe; It doesn’t end on a cliffhanger but you can’t say it wraps everything up either.

Overall, the combat is exciting. The scenes that are supposed to be intense land well. The reveals and twists are all well done. It kept me invested from start to finish.

There was a moment when Mercy Brown reveals that she’d been using duct tape to repair things around her home because she didn’t know-how. It’s the small details like that which make the world, characters, and the literary universe work. It’s not a scene about how Mercy needed duct tape and happened to have some. It explains why she has it and it’s amusing, endearing, and a plausible reason for a vampire to have some around.

The narrator has real talent. Audiobook narration wasn’t something I really appreciated until I began reviewing. I noticed she always read the chapter headers in a way that sounded cocky and arrogant. I could imagine her smirk as she read them and it fit Mercy’s personality well. In one chapter, Mercy was exasperated and it sounded like she read the chapter header to match. I now want to re-listen to all 4 audiobooks again just to see if that was in my imagination or if she really put that much work into matching chapter headers to the mood of the story. Regardless, she has a talent that deserves praise.
