*I received a free ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.*
This is going to be a short review since my thoughts on this one about pretty much the same as my thoughts on the first two, with just a few things to add.
I once again like how realistic and normal the high school aspect was, how interesting the story was, how likeable most of the characters were, and how supportive the female friendships were.
But not only did I love Spencer’s friendships with her best friends, I also loved her growing friendships with Thayer, Charlie, and Grim. I even liked the guys’ friendships among each other. They’re not the type of beings to find friends easily, so it was sweet seeing how much they cherished the friends they did have.
Another good thing was that this book had a little more emotion than Book 2 because of some love triangle/relationship-related things with both guys. I can’t say much about that because of spoilers, but Spencer finally made her decision at the end of Book 2, so this time she was dealing with the consequences and trying to work on the relationship with the person she chose. There wasn’t anything too heavy, but there were some painful moments, some bittersweet moments, and some happy moments.
But I once again had a few issues too. Most of them were the same ones I had in the last book, like typos and Hadrian not being the most likeable character (he was a little too volatile this time). And in this one Spencer became an amazing fighter super quickly, which didn’t feel realistic. It was explained as possibly being related to her powers, but still. Also, one of my favorite things about Spencer in the first book was that she actually made good decisions, but, as the series went on, her decision-making skills became worse (like investigating strange situations alone).
Overall though, this was another fun, fast-paced read in the series with some great friendships and conflict that kept me intrigued to know what would happen to these characters!
