Elise does have a heart, I knew she did! This book has not only been action packed but gritty and raw with emotions.
The last third of the book was so addictive that I couldn't put it down, my heart sped from chapter to chapter needing to know what happens next.
I love the past flashbacks it really gives you perspective on both Elise and James personalities and the dynamic of their bond. A significant moment for me was captured with just two words,
And then the end, well! Book 5 is calling to me like He calls to Elise!
I feel compelled to read the next books to find out what James did that Elise doesn't know and how did that ending come about? me thinks old Yatam was a clever old bean and he may also be my favourite male character in the books so far.
Easily the best of the series so far, and I really enjoyed the first three.
There's something in the earth deep below Elise Kavanagh's territory. A shadow is falling upon local demons to devour their flesh and harvest their souls. And it's coming for Elise next.
The Union has an easy way out. They want to send Elise into hiding again with her former partner, James Faulkner. All she has to do is surrender the territory and trust that they can protect the ethereal ruins, the dark gate, and the city she's come to know as home.
Greater powers have other plans for Elise and her fabled power as Godslayer--plans that mean surrendering her life and blood to the most powerful demon alive. But if she descends, there's no turning back. Once she gazes into the abyss, it will gaze back into her... and Elise will be damned forever.
