Cast in Hellfire by S.M. Reine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book was filled to the brim with surprises and even gave us a nice revelation at the end. If you’re looking for answers in this series, this book goes a long way towards giving us all the answers. Of course, there’s still more to learn and I’m not quite sure who I’m rooting for just yet.
Marion managed to muddle through the summit without her memories, but is still desperate for answers. Lucas/Seth dropped a bomb on her with his big reveal and now she’s left guessing at his motivations. Seth, meanwhile, is still rescuing damsels in distress and getting into bigger and bigger trouble. There’s also a long list of “symptoms” he’s gotten since coming back after Genesis. The only one who might be able to get him answers from the gods is the one person he is trying to stay away from. While Marion and he have a certain draw towards one another, Seth would also really like to kill her. Maybe not “like” but he would do it all the same if he let his more animal nature take over.
Marion’s also juggling her new role as Stewart of the Winter Court with being girlfriend to a sidhe prince. He’s been pretty patient waiting for her to get back into bed with him, but his patience isn’t infinite. There’s deception and games always being played and Marion without her memories just isn’t tough enough to really “play.” While I love Marion and Seth and think that they could really work, it seems like the more political choice would be the prince. Either way, Marion is pretty much playing blind without any memories in her head. The big reveal went a long way with me to make up for some pretty crappy choices earlier in the book. When will these people learn to trust? Maybe never, right? Either way, this book was completely addictive and left me wanting so much more.
