To say I got frustrated with this series repeatedly would be an understatement - but the payoff is pretty nifty. ( )

The final book in the trilogy......now I can go watch the show on Sundance! Can be somewhat graphic with some of the “torture” that occurs, not offensively. The author really does. Great job painting a vivid picture. Ended a bit abruptly. Wonder if we will find out more about this amazing couple! ( )

Listened to audio narrated by Jennifer Ikeda.

This is the final book in the trilogy of witches, vampires and demons.

Matthew and Diana have returned from their time travelling trip to continue their search for Ashmole 782 and it's missing pages. All the while managing Diana's pregnancy and the threats against them.They go from being secretive to telling almost everyone about what's going on and it seems very odd when they split for a time. The split is explained but it doesn't seem to fit, it felt like it wasn't really part of the overall story.

I'm a bit conflicted by this story, it seems to go on forever and not in a good way. It's bogged down with excessive details about irrelevant things. The story TELLS us it's urgent they find Ashmole 782 and reunite the pages but the characters often seemed to get sidetracked with mundane, ordinary events. It's almost a year from the time they return from the past to when they reunite the pages. Lots of distractions and then the ugliness with Matthew's son which felt unnecessary as well. The story finally picks up towards the end, somethings are resolved, some things aren't fully explained and we get a side dish on the stupidity of racism. In saying all that I still liked the book, well most of it, I just didn't love it.

Ugh -- glad to finally finish plowing through...Ok, probably my own fault for not re-reading #2, but keeping up and catching up with all the characters was exhausting, not to mention trying to make sense of all the vampire protocol (sire vs. father and all the tangled "family" connections) AND all the DNA mumbo jumbo. And where was her editor? the jump around from place to place and third person narrrator to first without warning made this book seem hurried (to publish) and amateurish compared to the first 2. But my biggest complaint was how contrived the plot was. Of course the villain shows up just when things seem peachy (cue the evil music) and continues to pop up when the characters least expect it, and the reader most. If it weren't the last in a trilogy, I would have added this to my "bailed" list. But the ending is less than satisfying and almost begs for #4,(which I won't read) ( )
