SummaryAdd a Summary
Dru has officially bloomed into being a Svotchka, and has (finally) developed all the power and the beauty that she seemed on the cusp of in the previous books.
Having just busted Graves out of Sergej's, They are both on the run with Ash and heading to the one place Dru ever felt safe so that they can all recoup and regroup before Sergej finds them. Which of course is sooner rather than later.
We get plenty of action leading up to and including when Dru finally has her showdown with Sergej and gets to avenge her mother, father and everyone/everything he's taken from her.
As for that triangle?
Graves and Dru finally get honest with each other and lay it all on the table with each other.
And we finally find out what's the whole story with Christophe.
But where this book was the lost in the slap-you-in-the-face lack-of-resolution at the end.
This book absolutely does not read like the final installment in a series. After I finished it I actually had to go back and reread the last few chapters to make sure I didnt miss anything, and my response was a loud "What the hell kind of ending is that?"
As a character, I am and have been pretty damn fond of Dru. She's handled everything that's been thrown at her with a maturity that belies her age, exhibited heart wrenching loyalty and a surprising lack of selfishness when it comes the people she cares about...until that last damn chapter.
For me it completely took away from that highly anticipated, wretchedly perfect, heartbreakingly awesome exchange two chapters earlier.
