This was another great book in a series I’m enjoying. To be honest, I don’t have much to say about this book specifically, but it had all the same great things as the previous two books—characters I liked and felt for, a sweet relationship, some emotional moments, some sexy moments, interesting supernatural powers and magic, a story that kept my attention.
This one was a bit lighter on the plot, but I didn’t mind; sometimes series need the occasional slower book to set things up, give background info, delve deeper into characters and their relationships, etc. I’m glad to finally have some answers about Quentin’s past, even though it is quite heavy and disturbing. But, though there was darkness, the struggles it brought really showed how much Laurence and Quentin care about each other. And the author doesn’t just throw things in as backstory and then brush them aside, they continue to affect the characters.
We were also introduced to spellcasting kinda magic. Plus, both Quentin and Laurence learned a bit more about and expanded their supernatural powers. There was also a new character brought in, and Laurence now has a raven familiar!
So all in all, another enjoyable book spent with likeable characters, and I am once again looking forward to continuing their story!
