Ellie has discovered that she has been played for a fool. The gods see her as nothing more than a mere pawn in their games. Struggling to figure out who she can trust and who she can't, she continues on her journey to get rid of the demons that surround her and cause terror once and for all. The series itself is great. I learned to love it. I really did. Book two was my favorite over all. However, I'm very upset with the ending. I will not go into details because I do not believe in spoiling books for others, but yeah. Cliff hangers are okay. Really. They are. I've never been one to hate them. They draw attention to the next book. If there is no next book, there should be no cliff hanger! It's really that simple. This book wasn't really as good as the second one. It was still better than the first one though. I've already pointed out my biggest flaw with this book and I don't want to be redundant. There were places that kind of drug on and places that I felt needed more detail. Either way, I adored it until the end. The transformation and growth of two of the main characters is amazing! I absolutely loved it. I can't say I really cared for certain character's attitude changed. And I predicted something about one of the characters right off. Either way, it was nice to see Ellie focused and determined. She shows a lot of remorse and self blame, but that's to be expected with what she has gone through. At least she's not the bratty self absorbed person she was in the first two. Because of the ending, I had to knock my rating of this book down to three out of five stars. I was very disappointed in how it ended in a big way. I have many questions. I just don't get how anybody would end a series on a cliff hanger. I still recommend it, but I think anybody who hates cliff hangers as much as I should might consider passing on it.
I've read this book on my Kindle. I didn't have enough time to re-read it, so I decided to listen to it instead! I spent a lot of time in my car, so it was perfect for me.
Denise's writing is spectacular.
Shannon is highly skilled as a narrator. Her voice is perfect as "Elllie."
I highly recommend listening to this series, or any book by Denise Grover Swank, in audiobook format!
