(e-arc from netgalley for review)
After reading all of the previous books in the series, I couldn't wait to get to this one. The story has been wonderful and kept me wanting more. I am so glad that Julie Kagawa decided to do this 4th book, and it is fantastic in Ash's POV. This was a great conclusion to a very excellent series. I was so wrapped up in this book, and enjoyed getting to know Ash from inside his own head.
Reading from Ash's POV was great. I loved knowing what he's thinking, and what he's feeling, instead of being shut out and only getting glimpses from an outside perspective. He has so much emotion inside of him that no one sees, and it made me love him so much more. All the hurt and pain he has been through, yet he remains so strong and determined. It was great to learn more about his relationship with Puck, and how they used to be before they were sworn enemies.
This book has some really great plot twists, and emotions. The characters have developed so well, and it's hard to not feel a connection with them. It takes us on a fantastic journey to get Ash back to Meghan as he promised. I kept wishing for the happily ever after, and hoping that Ash and Meghan would get it, but never knew whether it would happen or not. Ash seems to be on an impossible journey, and the odds are not in his favor. This book was so suspenseful and amazing. The romance was very touching. Does this book end in a happily ever after? You will have to read it to find out. I think this is my favorite book of the series. It was absolutely drawn into the story from the first page to the last. 5 out of 5 stars.
