This was one book which I really didn’t expect a lot of things. And well, it was written in such a way that I fully enjoyed the series. For what it was, and how it was written.
To me, this isn’t like most books. The premise is original, and the sequel definitely surprised me in how it went. Such as where it was heading, and the ending itself was in such a way that I didn’t expect it to turn out.
And the plot was entirely enjoyable, it tied up all the loose ends although I did wish for a more satisfying conclusion than this. But I didn’t mind it for the way it was, as it was unconventional and something that I haven’t actually seen done before.
And it worked.
The idea behind souls, exorcists and demons. The ideas that blend together and the reveals that comes with the story, is something that does a pretty good job of exploring the world as it is.
The characters and their background, back stories have truly been able to explore this rather messed up world without a soul and everything. And the way Nina dealt with everything, was something that was incredibly brave and truly makes her likeable.
As for Kastor, I was expecting something more sinister. But he was interesting for the last part, and all the truth that came out of his mouth. And as a villain, he somehow works. He has really dark agendas, and it is in such a way that is personal motivation and the fact that he is a demon.
All the while concluding this work which has been rather different from most in its genre, and making it end well, although it didn’t really tie up everything. And the world is largely still unchanged by the end of it.
Overall, I liked it. It is unusual, though it might not be for everyone.
