I did not really like this book as much as I did with the first two. This book was good and made sense just did not like the new plot. Did not make entire sense to had turned Joel into a vampire for an unjust reason. I understand that Sita lost her love of her life but replacing that person with another but that was a horrible way of grieving. Nonetheless, Sita isn’t perfect and that is what I like about her. This author continues to build the lore slowly when the information was needed which is great. The information is sparsely spread out for the reader to dissect and interpret to the plot line. I do not like information unloading all at once. I prefer breadcrumbs. Overall, I do like the series it is just this book I wasn’t a fan of.
