Review by: Laura26253 on Feb. 15, 2016 :
Let me start by saying, I was one of the privileged few to receive an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I almost dreaded reading this book. Not because I thought it would be bad, but because I didn't want the series to end. I'm extremely glad that I decided to accept the end and read it though. It's the perfect finale to David and Ara's story. After everything they've been through, they deserved to tell their story their way, and they have. People who haven't read this series may find it odd that I am referring to the characters as if they were real people. Trust me. Once you read this series, you will understand. Ms. Hudson doesn't write stories. She creates a world then invites you to live in it. And it is an absolute privilege to live in this world for a while. There were times I actually had to put the book down just to assure myself all was still right with the world.
It was so humbling to watch David go through all the emotions he felt. In the past novels he was always so stoic. Even to his a own detriment. So to see him actually break down, was heart wrenching but so needed. At points it almost felt like David and Ara swapped personalities. It was also nice to see how everything over the years affected others as well, especially Falcon. And, although her part in this story is minimal, seeing how the curse has affected Emily was insightful too.
I think my favorite aspect of this story is the struggle for love and normality in a world that doesn't nurture either. So many books make love look easy. This series never has, and that's still true. I loved that David and Ara had to fight to not only find the love they thought was lost, but to find a stronger version of it.
So many questions were answered in this book. A lot I didn't even realize I was asking. I don't like spoilers so I have left them out. There is, however, an event close to the end of the book that I'm hoping will eventually be the inspiration for a follow-up novel. (Hint hint). Once you read it, I'm sure you'll know what I'm referring to.
This is an absolute must read to finish this wonderfully epic journey. But, since I promised to be honest, I have to admit something. I know this is the end of this journey, but in the spirit of honesty, I sincerely hope there will be more to come. When one journey ends, another begins. I really hope another journey is just around the corner for this world and more importantly, these wonderfully lovable characters. Even when I wanted to hate certain characters because of circumstance, I truly couldn't being myself to. I love them all and will miss them.
So to sum it up, be sure to clear your calendar before starting this book because you will not want to be interrupted for anything. And prepare yourself for one heck of a book hangover. But, rest assured, the hangover is with it for sure.

Review by: Jennifer Crowfoot on July 15, 2013 :
Love this story. I was totally hooked from the first page. It is a brilliant twist on the much done Vampire story.
All of the characters were well-rounded with strengths, flaws and problems that only served to make them more human, or in some cases, inhuman.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this book to lovers of paranormal/romance, or just to long-time fans of the Vampire/human love affair.
I saw no comparison to Twilight myself, these characters were fresh and new, and came pre-burdened with mountains of baggage. I enjoyed the varying personalities and with every page turn I was intrigued as the dramas unfolded.

I loved this book! I loved the inner turmoil of the characters, especially Ara, who I grew to love and want to slap at the same time. I got pulled into the intrigue of David and his secrets. This is nothing like Twighlight as it has depth and dark twists, oh and no cheesy werewolf/vampire/ human love triangles!

Twilight/vampire diaries. Emily's caroline/jessica, sam's jeremy, her dad's alaric d cute history teacher, mike's jacob/damon- d fun friend but older & more sophisticated & david's edward/stefan.

Agreed with previous review, very reminiscent of Twilight down to the two perfect men for Ara to love, the absent mother, fragrant blood and instant inexplicable love. A lot darker though with a better developed slate of characters.

Review by: vt750s on May 21, 2013 :
This started out feeling like a Twilight fan fiction, but the characters are much more interesting and whilst there is some 'alpha male' behaviour, it doesn't have that disturbing undercurrent of domination/submission.
