If anyone knows me a little bit, they'll know I don't read books, I inhale them. Not always, of course. It depends on the book. Or on the saga, in this case. If there's a big saga with a mayor theme but books that have a different couple each as the main protagonist, after reading the little intro and liking it, I'm in.
And this is simply what happened with this saga. I read the first book, The darkest night and it was OK, and good but nothing out of this world. Now this one had a big improvement. Maybe the writer was more into it(?) I cannot know, but we have a more profound description, a bigger panorama of what's going on with pretty much all the warriors. And that's amazing, I need to know more and have a good context to get into it. And it never fails when the author sort of starts another character's story in a previous book, it leaves you hanging there for more, wanting to know the character, already pining for them.
I was already interested in Lucien in the previous book and he didn't disappoint, neither did Anya. I liked their personalities and that rather unusual change of roles, of weak woman, strong male, I think we all are a bit bored of that... So mixing a bit of equality is always exiting.
I think the ending was too easy, perhaps, since Anya gave the key away, her got her memories back extremely fast and no one was hurt. Maybe it was just for these two and it won't be as easy for the others
In this book we get a glimpse of something that might be relevant in the future for one of the warriors, I can feel it, I don't know how it's gonna be played and I don't wanna be spoiled.
