Great series. It just keeps getting better. I love all the characters in these books. I was a little upset about the ending but it did set up the next story so I will get over it.
The series is fascinating conceptually and truly different from other paranormals and I would ordinarily be raving about it - the characters are strong, the dialogue is good. That said, it is probably one of the most frustrating that I have read - it seems that Caine is incapable of finishing a book by actually ending it. Windfall and Firestorm (Book 5) are basically two halves of the same book which ends with yet another "cliffhanger" to book 6. It isn't unusual for books in this genre to have a major world arc that moves throughout the series, it is very annoying to never have a book actually end.
Joanne gets a little more annoying in this book. It's one thing to be rebellious and independent, it's another to constantly do the stupidest thing just because someone doesn't want you to.
Okay, have I said these books were intense before? If so, that was nothing compared to this one. Intense doesn't even begin to describe it. Heart-breaking for sure. Wondering who can be trusted. But seeing that Joanne does have friends and that there is hope. But like Joanne, I, too, am heart-broken.
This series is very intense with fast pacing and crazy twists. Sometimes I wonder if the characters are totally insane though. Some choices are just way too bizarre.
