Four months ago, Ember Lonergan made a decision that changed everything. She brought back a life, and it cost her a life in return. Only magic kept the pack from suffering the severe consequences of Ember’s rash decision. She thought the secret would stay buried forever. Josephine ensured them the spell would hold and the Grove would never know what they’d done.
But that was before Silas. Silas changed everything. He believes Ember is the only thing standing between him and the love he’s carried for over a century. He’s determined to take everything she loves away from her starting with her pack, and he has plenty of help. He’s got the original coven, he’s got Quinn, and he has a magic that rivals the gods.
The pack can only beat Silas by standing together, but that’s not as easy as it once was. People are keeping secrets, half the pack is crazy, and two of them are currently dead. Despite all of this, Ember still believes she can fix it, that she can save them all, she just needs more time. But just when she’s convinced she’s finally figured it all out, new players enter the game.
The pack of wolves and the family of reapers are back with vengeance and I’m rolling out of my fictitious grave just because this latest book is magnificently awesome. Deranged Angels and Cannibal Hearts is a definite must read!!!
Silas would do everything and anything to get Mace back. He loved him first, he chose him, he betrayed him, yes, but in the end, he would always want him. He made various tempting offers to Mace, but the former soul eater was already enamored with Ember Lonergan, the Necromancer, one third of the Trinity descendants of the Goddess Morrigan. Ember and her pack was all that mattered to him now… well, that, and getting a body for his wretched soul.
But everything had its consequences. Actually, it was not all about the trio anymore. Quinn, the former human who died and was resurrected was playing with fire, literally, proclaiming his allegiance to Silas while stabbing him in the back with his wife. Quinn’s soul was torn, the pack desolate and desperate to avenge Evangeline and those that they loved. In the end, it seemed that everything was already lost.
When I picked up Dark Dreams and Dead Things a week ago, I couldn’t let go of Ember, Mace/Balthazar, Kai, Rhys and Tristin (I can’t believe I am finally liking that banshee!) After devouring the second book, I moved on to Deranged Angels immediately and that was the best decision ever! Each night I spent reading these books, I grew restless and edgy and always thinking what could have happened next. I remember waking up every two hours just to read and finish the story, and when I got to the end, my heart hurt, because I knew I have to wait months and months again until Sinister Souls and Dead Things.
I don’t know what else to say. I don’t want to be too much spoilery, but if there’s one thing that’s been true ever since I started this series, it’s that Martina McAtee is remarkable author with amazing writing prowess. McAtee once again blew my mind and I believe she’ll continue doing so in her next books. Speaking of which. I need book 4, now!
