As I’ve previously said, each romance gets better than the last. I’m all for love at first sight/destined love, but I also love the back and forth conflict as they cum to accept it and get to know each other. Sofia and Heden are just adorable together. I think they have some of the best romance scenes so far, at least, of the ones I can remember.

On top o the improved romance, I find the new threat to be exciting. I was worried after the big bad demon boss was killed in book 4. I wasn’t sure if it was just going to be all romance, all the time, or if paradise would slowly deteriorate. It takes a logical turn and keeps things interesting. There were times previously when the danger felt like it took a back seat and lost some of its luster due to that.

One of the things that makes this one of the best books in the series so far is not only the balance between romance and conflict; It’s also how it continues to build upon the romances from past novels and characters. Sofia is on the war path, but even she has to accept that Evie is a changed person, and for the better. It continually builds upon the lore previously established to show that these people really are growing, learning, and adjusting to their new lives.

Devon Wilcox does a fantastic job, as always in bringing Etherya’s Earth and its characters to life. I really couldn’t imagine anybody else doing it at this point.
