Vengeance will be hers.

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.

Monster.

Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions – her creator Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost – the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, her triumph will be short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

THE FINAL HUNT IS ON.

My Review

What you’re in for: Vampires. Rabids. Shock. Despair. Heartache. Inner struggles and outer struggles.

The series as a whole: Some people really love this series. I’m one of the people that is kind of in the middle about the whole thing. While I enjoyed the story and wanted to continue reading until the end, the captivation factor just wasn’t as strong as it should have been. Throughout the story, I found myself super interested during the action scenes, but rather bored during any down times.

Am I glad I read it? Yes. I think this series is worth reading. I did enjoy it, for the most part. I just wish it didn’t cause such boredom in some parts. The characters were great, though. Definitely relatable and I had to finish the series to find out how the characters fared (especially after the way the second book ended!).

4 stars blue

    • Haha. You should read it! I get what you mean about not wanting the series to be over, but this book isn’t a disappointing series ender itself, so that’s good. I hate it when really good series end with a disappointing final book. Ahem, Allegiant, Ahem. Lol.
