The Four Points are missing, and the Shifters, Morelli and Magic Society have been forced together on the Side of Magic. Will Josy be able to help them unite before the Darkness consumes everything?
After last episode’s big stake claims I was expecting there to be more still ongoing things between the three groups. Let us be real, there is a lot to talk about but apparently nothing is happening on that front. Are these adults really that much of idiots?
This installment starts a week after the last and Josy has been getting targeted by anti-truce people. Through her book they figure out that there are 3 instruments with which they can close in the darkness. While this was foreshadowed in the other books I still felt like it wasn’t quite fitting for this point in the story. There is so much misinformation going around about the morelli and the darkness and I wish there was more focus on getting that dispelled at times. Instead Josi keeps getting all the endless information and it is not going anywhere.
Josi herself is not what makes me keep reading. Instead I have gotten quite fond of Nine, Aspen and even Rosalie. I think there is so much to explore with those characters and only getting Josi’s point of view feels limited sometimes. I loved that Rosalie got the chance to stand up to her parents. And the relationship problems that Josi and Aspen face are very real as they are from different groups. It wouldn’t be realistic if they didn’t have some friction about it. My only complaint is that I wish there had been more build up in previous books about it instead of it now just unfolding.
I do hope that the next installment is going to get us somewhere with more information about the Morelli and the Darkness and perhaps a stronger truce.
