Reckoning by Lili St.Crow REVIEW

Reckoning by Lili St. Crow (Strange Angels #5)

library


Synopsis from Goodreads
Nobody expected Dru Anderson to survive this long. Not Graves. Not Christophe. Not even Dru. She's battled killer zombies, jealous djamphirs, and bloodthirsty suckers straight out of her worst nightmares. But now that Dru has bloomed into a full-fledged svetocha - rare, beautiful, and toxic to all vampires - the worst is yet to come.

Because getting out alive is going to cost more than she's ever imagined. And in the end, is survival really worth the sacrifice?

DRU ANDERSON'S NOT AFRAID OF THE DARK.
BUT SHE SHOULD BE.

 *SPOILERS AHEAD*

Well, apparently this was the end. OK, the twist in the end was a long way coming, and I liked how Dru let Graves sort out his sh*t and plainly told Christophe that he is too old for her and creeps her out in general *grinning* What? He was totally creeping me out too!


However, everything else is anticlimactic. All this build up of tension, pain and strong emotions ends with numb and bone tired Dru which is realistic but not very exciting.

So I couldn't help but feel mildly disappointed. The book ends like life itself -an open road with multiple choices, I needed  my happy ending fix. Oh well, we can't always get what we want and have to make do with what we have.

This is a trademark of Lili. She always has these ambiguous endings, but her books are so intense, draining and full of beautiful action-sequences I love them anyway!

You were warned. Read at your risk, and I hope you enjoy Reckoning anyway!

Я не знаю почему от книг Лили я до сих пор ожидаю банального "и они жили долго и счастливо". Она всегда оставляет своих героинь на перекрёстке дорог, мчащихся вдаль и со знанием, что жизнь не всегда получается такой, как тебе хочется, а скорее счастье ковать надо из того, что тебе дано.

Вот в этот раз, концовка серии антиклиматичная после всех погонь, драк и ЧП. Дрю остаётся одна, до смерти уставшая и опустошённая, управлять Советом посреди вороха проблем и новых союзов. 

Грэйвс как и все мужики, сбегает, чтобы подлечится и разобраться со своими душевными проблемами, а Кристоф наконец-то получает долгожданное "ты для меня слишком стар, и у меня от тебя непрятный холодок по коже"... А что? Меня он тоже вымораживал. Старый дампир, что был влюблён в маму Дрю, а теперь увивается за ней? Неправильная это картинка.

Так что вот так. Я вас предупредила. Читать на свой страх и риск.

7.5/10

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
