The third book in the Demon’s Lexicon trilogy, and though the POV felt strange in the beginning I really enjoyed this as much as the other two books. At first I didn’t know what to do with this Sin POV. It’s not that I don’t like her, but she was such a minor character in the first two books, that I was afraid that the whole plot would be moved away from Nick, Alan, Jamie and Mae. Thankfully that was not the case, though I still think that wasn’t the right POV for the third book. Apparently Nick made a lot progress in this book, but what happened between him and Mae was only mentioned as a sideline, what’s really sad since the first two books were mostly about them.

But I loved this book anyway. Again Sarah wrote this book in a way that the reader had no idea, what the intentions of the different characters were. And that has nothing to do with the POV from a character who doesn’t really know the others. I love Sarah’s writing, the sarcasm and the pace of the plot. It never gets boring or uninteresting. This is a fitting end for a series like this, though I still want to know what happens with Nick and Mae now, or how they got to the point where they were at the end.
