Series: Gravestone Elite #3
My Rating: ★★★
I’ve been waiting for this conclusion with bated breath following that explosive cliff-hanger in Tarnished Crown. When Mia finally wakes up to what is possibly the worst reality anyone should ever has to face, her tormentor is nowhere to be found. Since she crossed paths with Cade her life has been one thing after another; and the latest shenanigans were the straw that finally broke the camel’s back.
Cade is nowhere, yet she seems him everywhere. Or is she simply losing her mind? Obsessed with revenge, Cade takes it too far, bringing out the protective beast in Bex. He is desperate to be everything she needs in her time of horror, desperate for her to fight out of the darkness that she seemingly has sunk into. Try as he might, he can’t seem to reach her or is he simply not seeing what’s in front of his eyes?
I really enjoyed this series. Mia’s struggles were written so well that I spent most of the book wondering whether she really has lost her mind. I did however wish there had been some drama between Bex and Mia. I didn’t feel like we spent enough time with them in this book. Especially when Bex finally understood what Mia had been telling her, she forgave him rather easily, much to my annoyance. There are still some questions that remain unanswered. What James’ real gig is? It was touched on in the previous book, but he seems featured a lot yet it’s not really clear where he fits in, even Mia didn’t know. There have been references to other organisations that Q work with, well who? How did Cade manage to get Mia’s name in the thingy-ma-bob to begin with? How did he get into the house undetected if the house was littered with bodyguards? You mean he managed to walk through the grounds, in and out undetected? How? When Marcus died, he just died. No funeral, mourning period. I don’t know. It felt like there were some loose ends there.
However, there is no doubt that this author is my auto-buy. I have read absolutely every book she’s read and there’s never a doubt ill enjoy it and I will read any of her future work.
