I was very relaxed going into this novel. I think because it was about an existing couple and I had no worries about their relationship or whether the author would do it well. I mean we all know Wrath and Beth are solid. Right? I just settled back and enjoyed the story.
As usual these books are written with multiple 3rd person POV's. The players in this were Wrath and Beth, Xcor and Layla, Trez and Selena, Assail and Sola, and last but not least, Wrath's father (Wrath) and his shellan Anha. Even though there were so many players it all came together clearly and easily and I enjoyed all the POV's except 'past' Wrath and Anha which was ok but I did get a little bored and skimmed some parts.
These characters are larger than life. They have a unique and immediately recognizable dialect and appearance. They have a well-known mythology and noble and secret traditions. They have amazing super powers. Everything is good vs evil. In fact if Marvel comics were written as full length novels I imagine they would look something like this. These Brothers are cult action heroes. Reading a new book about them has become like putting on a comfy pair of old slippers for me. I know exactly what I'm going to get and I know it will be entertaining. Plus I always cry at the end. This author knows how to get the tear ducts going with emotional endings.
So about the story. I'm putting everything under a spoiler tag although the spoilers are fairly mild IMO. Most of this is for me to remember what is going on when I pick up the next book in 2015 because I did have some problems picking up the thread from Lover At Last.
I'm definitely on board for the next book in 2015!
