This series is fabulous and it's my most favorite of all the UF series that I read. It has everything you could ask for: a sassy heroine, a love triangle that drives you nutso and makes you a fanatic. (in a good way) (Team Desmond holla!) I was really worried when I started this book because I knew that this one had a lot more Holden in it. I was afraid I'd gravitate toward him instead of my beloved Desmond. While I did like him a lot more, never fear I am still totally on Team Desmond! Though Sig just makes me like him more and more with each book.
The characters in this series have become close book friends to me now, and I love seeing them again. I just wish that Cedes had been in this one a bit more, and that Sig while he was in this one a lot, I would love to see him involved in the plots even more. He is a very close second to my favorite werewolf, Desmond. He gets Secret, and I love how he knows just how far to push her. He is so mysterious and I hope we find out more about his past in books to come.
I feel like Secret has grown a lot with each book. In this one, she realizes who she loves more, even though she makes some stupid ass mistakes and made me want to slap her silly. In this book, Lucas' sister goes missing. The search for her takes her to a different realm, and I have to admit I liked how even though Secret thinks she knows everything and can handle anything her plan to get Lucas' sister back backfires in a way that even she couldn't imagine. It was nice to see her ego be checked in.
As much as I love this series and Secret, her decisions and lack of foresight of how they might hurt others DROVE ME CRAZY. These decisions might, just might have something to do with a certain vampire. So if you are on that team, this book will probably make you very happy. :) My main problem is I'm getting impatient in the romance department with Secret. I think by now the love triangle should be down to just one. Heck, even Ethan and Merit had gotten together by book 5!
