really liked it
bookshelves: must-get-list

Ok.. This book is heavy weight material.
I do want to give a 5 star review but there is something missing/weird that I can't put a finger to it BUT it is still worth it.

It will make you tense up, make you weep, make you mad and make you scream!!
This is raw, brutal, cruel and INTENSE.
There are so many twists and turns that it put you in shock and disbelief.

Rhiannon Murphy, the forever stubborn, reckless, badass, kickass, foul mouthed woman we all love.
In this book, may I add STUPID to one of her ever loving characters when come to decision making and make you go

I mean (view spoiler)
But I still love her.
Yep. Truth!

After the horrible incident involving Discoball in book 2, she left Discoball by saving him in the present after coming back from the "future" and in which set up "The Ripple Effect" as warned by Paine.
What a b*tch huh? Things went to hell and there are no going back, no regrets and no fast forward.
Basically, it is one hell of a ride.
Men trouble (Discoball VS Paine the quiet), Sires/Makers trouble, knife trouble, half-demons trouble, debt trouble, damn vampire/demon/familiar/servant/slave politics trouble and yada yada...
You name it. You have it. And nobody says you will like it.
DARK remember?

I can't describe how I feel at certain change of events but I do feel all tensed up just reading that chapter alone.
(view spoiler)
It's all so WTH moments after that till some justice were served at the end.

I liked that it wasn't rushed and it doesn't rush to kill all villians in the book itself.
It more or less open up to more shit to tackle and possible consequences and actions for Rhiannon to deal with.
I also like the scenes on Goose, new friend;Bane and Marigold Vesta.

I might not be happy with the romance but I am SO looking forward to Book 4.

And Rhiannon.. I do think you should hand this out to anyone you meet.
