There’s a monster running around Dublin, and it’s up to Ava to catch it. The pressure’s on, and she’s becoming as cynical as Peter. But when a demon marks her friend, and a possible threat from England spells war, Ava’s left with a huge choice to make. The lives of one or many.
With a little help, Ava has the chance to win all of her battles… if the darkness doesn’t take her over first.
Let me just say Claire Farrell didn't let me down, this book was just as good as the two before, and maybe even slightly better in ways such as you know the characters more, you know what is what and what creatures to expect in the book and also because you have seen throughout the books that the main characters have grown and changed. This book is like continuing from where the last one started maybe a week or later, and that's good because it means there's less chance forgetting what happened. This book has the same writing style as the books before and the POV is still with Ava Delaney. This plot is basically what it says in the description, Ava has to capture a monster but then also risks losing a friend, so this whole book is seeing how she does it.. who helps.. and how she does.
Well as the two books before the characters are pretty much the same, and i hate doing books after the first in a series but then I feel bad if I just don't do it. Well I can say that continuing a statement up above about characters growing etc. is true so I can talk about that.
Ava has grown in strength.. agility and a lot of other stuff, she has learnt to trust people and understand that she may sometimes needs help. Through out ALL 3 books she has tried her very best to do the right thing and yes it may be wrong but she tries to make that wrong into a right. Ava is one the best Female characters I have read about so far this year (yes I know its only the 9th :P). She still tries to hide her feelings and emotions from she feels towards certain people but in the end it will come out.
Carl having been let free from the first book, and then still wanting to be involved in the second kind of lands him in trouble, he is unable to tell Ava or Peter so basically he is just acting strange to them when the real reason come alight in the book. I feel Carl was/is the opposite of Ava.. where Ava wants to be away from this.. Carl wanted to be a part of this. He is a nice character but yet a little annoying at times in this book.
Peter, well there's not much to say other than I actually love him this time, he did right by Ava and tried to help when he could. He would risk a lot for her but then there is his limits to that which I feel is good. He is a kind and enjoyable character and from the first book to now he has changed a lot to me, and I am glad.
Then next character is Eddie, well I think I have grown to like him a lot because in this book you see he cares and he is trying to help Ava but we don't really know why. We learn a lot more about him and what he is and the background on how he became so powerful in which helps up see why he acts so strangely and secretly.
There is many more characters but to be honest I don't really know what to say and I have forgotten some of the characters names (if only I had a good memory). All I can say is there is a lot of good characters and I liked them all in different ways.
My overall opinion is that I loved this book and I thought this was the best out of all 3 so far.
I recommend this book if you have read Thirst and Taunt.
There is going to be a fourth book out called Taken this year.
