Let me just begin by saying that I LOVE this series! Every time another book comes out in this series I get wrapped up in it. In the fourth installment, the events takes place a year after the evens in Rio (from the third novel) and is written from three key character's points of view: Bliss, Schuyler, and Mimi.
Plot wise, there is a lot of action going on as we now know who Bliss really is and begin to see what plans her father is hatching. I really admired Schuyler in this novel, she's traveling the world with no one but Oliver by her side, and she has a team of Venerators on her trail, yet she stays strong and cool. We seem to get some sort of resolution in the Schuyler-Oliver-Jack love triangle.
And NO, (as badly as I want to have someone to talk to about this) I will not reveal what happens. But I will say this- I’m Team Jack all the way. He’s the mysterious, deathly angel with a heart of gold, you can’t help but love him. His passion and love for Schuyler is just freaking hott! Just the way he looks at her, you don’t know if he wants to grab her and kiss her, or… um, do her. He drives me crazy!
Overall, add this book to your TBR pile people! If you’ve made it this far, you won’t be disappointed. One more thing, the ending- it was intense, and I did not see it coming. Just when I thought I had the plot figured out, de la Cruz takes her story and twists it 180 degrees. Well done Mrs. De la Cruz, well done.
