If you’ve Chosen to come this far—you won’t be disappointed. (And I have a trifecta!)
Note: This series needs to be read in order, or you’ll spoil all the fun. This review may feel thin because I didn’t want to spoil anything.
What I can tell you is that if you like romances where the leads share the spotlight, you will love this one. In fact, Jo and Caius’s relationship is definitely my favorite part of this series. Jo is no damsel in distress and Caius is not a demon whose life was unfulfilled before meeting her. However, what they bring to each other, and to us, makes the chemistry more than just the sum of its parts. Unlike many romances today, this one gives us a relationship that feels real, not just based on hotness. Granted, Caius is drool-worthy, but he is also complex and sometimes brooding. And Jo has as many issues as Time magazine. But they make it work and I love that.
The stakes can’t get much higher for Jo and her crew, and Jo herself is put through the wringer in this one. But her trials make her stronger and we root for her every step of the way.
As we reach the final book of the Raven Daughter series, Trosper continues to give us vast, fantastical, and beautiful landscapes filled with varied races of people. Not to mention, a plethora of gods and goddesses. Normally, you won’t find deities rubbing elbows across cultural lines, but (like she does in her Bound books) Trosper boldly throws them together and comes up with intriguing alliances and chemistries all their own. Nyx and Hades are spectacular.
As for the prophecy, it plays out as true but with a twist—which is how the best prophecies work. But rest assured, it all ties up in the end, no cliffs awaiting the unwary reader here.
Oh and, I may have lied about Jo and Caius being my favorite part because the bastet cat Amisi is definitely up there. But that’s because she’s… a cat. A big, bad, magical cat.
