My Thoughts: I’ve been interested in the evolution of Azrael aka TC/Trench Coat aka the Archer; he’s sort of analogous to a slightly less-charming Spike, in that he started off as the Big Bad and then gradually has infiltrated himself into Zoë’s Scooby Gang. Every scene where he’s doing something kind of inane, like eating grapes, I see in my mind that scene from Buffy the
OMG I've been waiting for this book for soooooo long (at least to me it felt that way) and it was AWESOME. If you have not read the previous Zoe Martinique books DO NOT attempt to start with this one. You will be hopelessly lost and confused. For those of you bright people who have read the previous books, I think you will be pleased with this installment.

All of the usual suspects are here and there were some very intriguing plot twists that I didn't see coming. Some ppl may be distressed by a c
Finished this book last night and it's honestly been one of my favs of the series so far, even tho I absolutely HATED the ending...hoping that what happened will be cleared up in a way that makes me smile rather than cry by the next book....but desperately waiting to see what happens as always.
Zoe is great but Geist does not do her character justice. This book was just not tight enough. It had lots of typos and grammatical errors. It needed another round of proofreading at a minimum, and Zoe did not seem to be her usual sassy self. There is just so much good stuff here that it makes me sad that it was not properly developed, and that I was unable to love it. I hope that Phaedra will be able to find another major publisher to work with her, because I think she deserves it, and I want t ...more

I love this book, I think its the best one yet. Everyone is seeing Rhonda's true colors. Okay this book is about getting Zoe out of the egg/throne her father tricked her into and putting the missing page that Zoe has with her which acts a link for her to Dags so that she can astro project as a familiar taking the place of Maureen back into the Grimore so that Dage would be fully himself which he is sort but the book does not allow him access since this 1 page is missing. So, Zoe an

I loved the book—even though I had no idea what was happening. The story itself—the triangle between Dags, Zoe and Rhonda was easy to follow. I wasn't expecting the ending which is what sold it for me.

My initial reaction is, that if you want to read this series, read it from book ONE. Don't jump in the middle 'cause you're gonna be a bit confused.
I used to like this series, but the last book was tough for me to read, there were so many changes and not good ones. After 50 pages in this one I am giving up. I don't care for the new direction things are going, I miss the way the characters used to interact and I miss Zoe's wit. In the end this one just wasn't for me.
Zoe is at it again! I loved this book. It was much more hopeful than some of Zoe's other adventures...even the ending!

Phaedra gets better and better with every book she writes. I hope she continues to surprise us!
