Broken Blood by Heather Hildenbrand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
We have finally reached the end of the series! While this is the end of the series, though, I feel like we are left with a few loose ends and questions still open, but maybe that’s just me.
As is typical for this series, there are a bunch of questionable decisions made along the way that confused and angered me, but if you push that aside, this was at least a solid conclusion to the CHAS storyline. We start the book in a very bad place. Tara is still confined by Gordon and being tortured/experimented on/imprisoned. There’s some old familiar faces that pop up all over the place in this story, so be on the lookout. Just when Tara thinks she may be making steps forward, layers of betrayal and loss send her back into a spiral.
Yes, after some doing, she finally gets out and is able to flip flop on her leadership position like your typical teenage girl. At least there is a little less of the love triangle to contend with, as that decision has long since been made and remade. There’s also a lot of blood bond talk that ends up coming and going with just as much ease as in previous installments. What things are thought to be huge deals end up being “meh” and then the things we thought would be easy end up being the showstoppers. Without giving away too much about where we end up, it’s clear at the end of the book that there’s still work to do (and romantic connections to follow-up on), but everyone is finally on a more definitive path in life. I’m happy Tara got here, but am also just as happy to no longer be in her head.
