Sacrificed in Shadow by S.M. Reine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I could not get my hands on this book fast enough! I am absolutely in love with both of the series that come together in this book. After picking this book up, I seriously considered calling out sick from work just to finish uninterrupted.
Even after all the expectation I had for this series, I still don't think I would change a single thing about this book. It was filled with all the things I was hoping for: We get a good dose of James and Elise (in all their dysfunctional glory), answering all my questions about where they ended up after their last book. We get to learn a little more about Nash, which is exactly what I wanted after completing his book. Seth gets more time in the spotlight, to make up for him being away in the last book. Some familiar supporting characters and references show up along the way, which makes me feel like a little fan girl. Anthony is only present in small sections of the book (a plus for me, because I still hate him). There is tons of action, which really kept the pages turning. Lastly, the story was what I've come to expect from this author - great!
I love a story that can keep me guessing until the last few chapters. It's so rare that you can pick up a book, especially this deep into the series (or more than one series), and still be surprised at the twists and turns the author throws at you. I can't wait to see where this new Ascension Series goes and I'll be counting down the days until the next book comes out!
