**spoiler alert** I really enjoyed the book but as with all JR Wards books it's a case of too much of everything and not enough of some things..

I wish she would have the focus and fluidity of her first three books. I have an issue with carrying on a series cause it's a big ole cash cow. It's not even recognisable from the first forays into the world. Some people will say that's like real life, things change characters adapt but this isn't real life.
So yeah, more JM and Xhex which I loved! More Blay and Qhuinn! Which I loved. And a better look at Layla which was great as she has been much hated in these books. I even enjoyed a softening of Xcor.
Tohr and No'one. Should never have been. It was sad and heartbreaking I just never believed in it at all.
And what's the shit with Assail? Another fucking new character. In a series that has too many already.
So let's count shall we? With this new installment we can have Xcor's book, probably Throe's as well with Assails in there obvs and if I don't get some kind of story whether it be novella or full length with Blay and Qhuinn I shall turn to the dreaded fan fiction. Watch me! And probably Lassiter (although I never understood the appeal of him...)
The series has now turned into a sprawling soap opera ( and not even a particulary good one at that!) I can guess what's going to happen!
Probably Sax will find a way for Qhuinn to become a brother and then because of that it will porbably open the way for Xcor and the band of bastards to become brothers too, thus allowing Xcor and Layla to get together. I am not sure how she is going to work in Qhuinn and Laylas baby or Qhuinn and Blay and how Assail fits into this. Plus I forgot Trev and Iam.
Srsly, and where were the lessers and the omega and the scribe virgin in all this. It's like the author has ssen a few reviews that say, 'I skip the lessers part' and thought, 'you know what I'm just gonna phase all that out'. And hope we don't notice! It annoys me!
