Finally, I know what happened after the scene that made me scream ‘NO, NO, NO’ for a while and I think the third time was a charm and I didn’t get too crazy when I came face to face with the cliffhanger 🙂 I read the last scene and hoping to read what was next, then BOOM! It was the end, which took me a couple of seconds to realize by the way. I was like ‘No, this can’t be it, went back again to make sure I wasn’t skipping anything 🙂 Thank you Ms. Bennett for making me act like a crazed person 🙂 As you might already figure out, I am obsessed with the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and with each and every book series becomes more and more addictive. This series feels like the X-2 ride in Magic Mountain. I am not sure if you like roller coasters, but I love them. Why X-2? Because on that ride you are going backward and cannot see where you are going. Just like the ride, with these books, you have no idea where you are going. Yes there is a finish line so to speak and you know you are moving towards there but from start to end, you cannot predict anything. The only thing you can do is buckle up and enjoy the ride 🙂
Just a warning before the review; since I don’t want to ruin the story for anyone who hasn’t read yet, this review will be pretty superficial.
The third book of the series The Evolution of Fae and Gods picks up where Ms. Bennett left us high and dry at the end of A Discovery of Secrets and Fate. Finley still didn’t give up on her twin and while trying to figure out the prophecy, she is trying her best to find a way to save Fallon as well. I love how her friends, aka Scooby Gang, never leave her alone. Even when things get scary, they are there to support and encourage her. She has a lot of support around her and slowly she is gaining her confidence, but I think the main reason for her getting stronger and stronger is Carrick. I loved how their relationship evolved to something sweet but sizzling hot 🙂 While they are trying to figure out the extend of Finley’s powers and what will happen with the prophecy, they will add more allies to the cause, some good, some evil. Oh, and we have a bit more of God interferences. I like Veda but Rune, I have no words for him. His hatred for Carrick is something else. Even though now I understand his reasoning, he is just too cruel. Also, since the first book, I was wondering why Carrick had disliked Finley from the moment he saw her or later on in the story why he was fighting hard to stay away from her, what was he afraid of? Yeap, now I got an answer to these questions and it was not something I expected, and it made me like Carrick even more. Even though some of the mysteries were revealed and I got some answers to my question, at the end of the book I had more questions thanks to Ms. Bennett’s breadcrumbs and clues.
From start to finish I was captivated by the story and couldn’t believe it when it ended. There are 2 more books to the series, and I am dying to know what will happen at the end but at the same time, I don’t want it to end. What a dilemma I am facing 🙂 But still, I cannot wait to see where A Battle of Blood and Stone, which is the next book of the series and will be released on April 13th, will take us next.
