Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars. I had read the synopsis of this book so I knew what to expect, but I still wasn't ready for it. :(
There's also a noticeable pattern to the series that started with book 2. The main story line of Seth and Georgina is always bogged down with some insignificant background story which always fails to gather my interest. It's always something dangerous that has to do with her supernatural world, but Georgina always keeps it a secret from Seth until it's too late and her life's in ultimate danger. *le sigh*
It's getting so predictable and book 3 definitely follows the same pattern, except that Seth jumps ship at the end with the most unexpected character: Maddie. Really??? Just out of left field and so stupid.
Georgina's not too far behind in the stupid category, shacking up with Dante - a super unsavory character who's done our dearest Erick and the world wrong! What?? Just craziness. How is this guy not in jail? He slits his sister's throat and the police never even investigated him? How is this even possible?
Anyhoo, Nyx makes it into the mix as a subplot where the angels are all trying to capture the escaped deity before anyone figures out they've lost her. Also, Niphon - Georgina's imp from long ago who actually brokered her deal to Hell rears his ugly head with a brand new succubus in tow, Tawny, whom Georgina gets stuck mentoring.
Plus, if we already didn't have enough blah! on our plates, another subplot is thrown in the mix where Vincent, a nephilim who's hiding his energy signature and posing as a human psychic is having a hush-hush relationship with an angel. They two - like Seth & Georgina - don't have sex because the angel doesn't want to fall and become a demon. Things also don't end well with them and I can't believe Vincent jumps ship at the end so carelessly as Seth does. A**holes!
It turns out Nyx infiltrates Georgina's dreams and drains out her powers, and meanwhile she's giving Georgina some weird dreams where Georgina has a special man in her life and she actually has a daughter - oh yeah and a broken dishwasher. But Georgina doesn't see it through the end of the dream and can't see who this mystery man is.
It's still a longshot of a dream since succubi can't have children. Georgina dismisses it, even though Nyx swears all her dreams come true.
But even though my interest was piqued, I couldn't even give this the attention it deserves because SETHHHH!!!! Aghhh! I completely take back everything good I've ever said about you. You, sir, are a pig. Ugh -- at this point, I'm rooting for Roman to come back.
*le sad sigh*
