This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
A demon hunter seeking to break a curse. A half-demon playing a dangerous game. And a professor that’s the puppet master of them both…
Everyone at Blackthorn Hunter’s Academy has found out about my half-demon blood, and I’ve become the most hated girl in school. I thought pranks were the worst to come—until people started calling for my head.
Rey and I have bound souls, but the bond we share has become a curse. He’s refusing my love, and if that weren’t awkward enough, now he’s my teacher.
I no longer want my soul tied to Rey’s. And to break the connection between us, we’ll have to perform a ritual that’ll put the whole academy in danger…
I made a deal with Professor Crimson. Get rid of Headmaster Randall, and he’ll spare Erin’s life. It’s a mission that’s proving to be harder—and more dangerous—than I ever imagined.
Erin doesn’t understand that we can’t be together. It’s far too dangerous, even though my love still burns for her secretly. Going through with this ritual to break our bond might be a mistake…
It’s amazing how this series can continue to wow me and stay interesting at the same time. This third book wastes no time at the start gate. It’s right off the bat, no useless review of what happened in the other books as authors tend to. If you liked the first two books then this will rock your world. So much happens in this book! Packed with action and suspense that will keep you entertained throughout the entire book. The writing stays true to the other two books, easy to read even for the inexperienced. The pacing is just right. You’re never bored nor does it feel like you’ve missed something.
The character depth and development is ever changing and full of surprises, Erin is turning into one hell of a character that you’d be dying to know in the real world. Rey is charming as ever and the rest of the crew will grow on you as you get to know them even more.
What really makes the series one of the best fantasy series ever is the world building. It’s on point! A mix of the real world and the fantasy world it just clashes together perfectly.
Haygert is one heck of a talented author. My expectations are becoming higher, but this book exceeded my already highly expectations. Unlike so many other stories in this genre, this series keeps it real! The main hero doesn’t become the strongest person over night, but through training and hard work. That I love the series for even more!
Next book: The Shadow Trials, which is going to be exciting. Thinking it will be something like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but we will see.
If you haven’t read the series, you really should drop everything you’re doing or reading, get kindle and buy this series!
