Summary

Some myths should just stay buried.

Brexley’s journey has led her to the most coveted object in the world. In discovering the Nectar, Brexley finds other secrets and truths she was not ready for, ones that destroy everything she has ever known, confronting a power within herself she is not ready to face.

Magic is a balance. Things come at a cost. In saving lives, Brexley destroys her own power, cutting the connection with the infamous legend. When faced with devastating loss and destruction, the fabric of friendship, trust, and love are put to the test.

Trying to forget her grief, Brexley delves deeper into stopping Istvan, uncovering the depths he will go to gain power. She is thrown deep into the underbelly of greed and deceit, leading her back into the depths of hell...where only one survives.

Hold on to your credit or money!!!

I'm sorry but this is a story that just seems to drag on. And no matter the good intentions the main character has every decision she makes seems to come back with an unforeseen or unexpected negative side effect. And it always seems like the enemy is 10 steps more ahead... And seriously if somebody goes through a prison as bad as that and then has nightmares and trauma long after it and then suddenly it's thrown back in another one!?!? And then let's waste a few more chapters in a story just to describe the trauma from the first prison and now have an entire book that takes place in a prison!?!? My heart has lost interest in this story! for God's sakes throw a reader of bone give the main character or characters that are being killed off a boon! I'm not saying there shouldn't be challenges but the amount of challenges being thrown in this book seem very unwinnable. Also half the books are filler, you can only hear about sex and gossip so long before it gets old. I'm tired of wasting my credits on something that sounds more and more depressing. I've lost interest in the story and don't think I will continue.

Taking too long to get to the point

I feel like at this point I’m invested and I have to finish. This is like soap opera long. So many eye rolls while reading. Of course there’s a cliff hanger just to make me keep punishing myself. I kept skipping forward to get past parts. Ugh 2 more books kill me now. What a great way to destroy a great story line draw it out into 6 books.

Same book again

It’s basically book two and three again with slightly different character interactions. I kept hoping it would pickup and get better but no. I’ll read book six because I can’t not finish a series but dang it’s a struggle to start it.

Woah!!

How amazing is this series?!! I can’t get enough! Stacey Marie Brown just throws more and more at you and you just can’t guess what’s coming. This was gritty, emotional, intense and action packed.

Eva Kaminsky once again does a stellar job with the narration. You can literally FEEL the emotion in her voice and it draws you so deep into the story.

Well I don’t know what I was expecting

The odds have been increasingly stacking up on our FMC, but wow I was not expecting that, I am happy that the next book is available bc the cliff hanger right here would have stabbed my in my vital organs and left me bleeding out until the next book was available… I’m skipping my way to the next book hoping anything can go right but it just doesn’t seem favorable….. I really feel bullied and assaulted by this installment … BRAVA!!!!

Oh my gosh here we go again!!!!!

Once again the writer hss me so frustrated and annoued that have to vent in an early review before the booknis even vlose to being over!!!
The pitty party this girl is tripping on makes me want to scream!!!!!! Get over yourself and do something about the problems instead of being so damn annoying with all this poor pitiful me BS. "Oh I don't have my powers anymore I can't feel him or them anymore so I'm going to push the man I love away and wine about him leaving after I basically forced him to do so. And let me wine about not havibg the powers I once said I didn't want but secretly did want. UuuuuGgggHHHHH. Now that I have said all of this it's probably going to get better. It does every time. It better. I had already figured out she was the power and potion everyone has been wanting. like I said in a previous review. Predictable but still good.
Please let this girl finally get her link back to her men and get her powers back so she can get over this crybaby BS. I cannot stand that shit!. lol

Tough to get through

The first three books I had high expectations for the fourth however about midway I lost interest. Too many characters introduced, story becomes bogged down with a lot of details that don’t really add anything to the story just seem to drag it out. Always when did the heroine go from a bad ass to such a whiny and self loathing, but still reckless character. Finally finished and honestly it was tough.

Still engaging!

A little slow the first few chapters but the end was worth it! Was so into it that when it was over I didn’t realize it and wasn’t ready. Anxiously waiting for book 5!
