Urban Fantasy Review: Darkness Wanes by Susan Illene

Darkness Wanes by Susan Illene (The Sensor #6)


Ecopy thanks to the author

Synopsis from Goodreads
Book Six of the Sensor Series—final installment.

Melena Sanders is locked away in Purgatory, which is no vacation, but she’ll soon be returning to Alaska where troubles are mounting once again. Suspicious fires are breaking out, supernaturals are being attacked, and there’s an enemy lurking out there waiting for his chance to strike. Her lover, Lucas, is managing to hold their home together during her absence, but he’s more than ready for her to return. It will take the two of them working together, along with friends and family, to overcome the darkness that is about to unleash.

8/10

This was a nice book, at times sweet and at times full of hardcore action. As an end to the series it tied up everything nicely.  


 Melena does not have it easy in Purgatory, and coming to the surface is no picnic either. Alaska experiences forest fires, the peace spell the archangels put on human race due to the revelation of paranormal species is wearing off, and Melena's fanatic sensor family is still out for her blood. 

Her strong sense of justice also doesn't allow her to sit quietly while two instigators of the revelation are still suffering their harsh sentences for breaking archangels' rules. So she is back, dealing with human attacks, conspiracies, governmental bureaucracy and depressed teenagers while plotting breaking into Hell.

Not an easy life, but it's also lively and fun at times, with Kerbasi bringing a much needed comic relief. I love Melena's character and her unbending will. Her relationship with Lucas is fun to watch, and the whole trip to Hell was kickass!

There is also a lovely surprise hidden here, and a character of Melena's friend, Cori - is an absolute gem. Overall, solid four stars, and I'm secretly hoping for many spin-offs, starting with Cori, which would be great.

Это была хорошая книжка, местами милая, а местами насыщенная крутым экшном. В качестве концовки серии - она завязала все узлы без запинки.

Заключение Мелены в Чистилище даётся ей нелегко, и возвращение на поверхность - тоже не прогулка в парке. В Аляске горят лесные пожары; мирное заклинание, наложенное архангелами на население земли после раскрытия тайны о существовании паранормальных существ начинает рассеиваться, и всё больше людей атакуют её друзей в страхе; наконец, фанатичное семейство сенсоров - родственников Мелены, продолжает за ней охотиться.

Её сильное чувство правосудия также не позволяет ей сидеть в сторонке, пока остальные виновники раскрытия тайны существования паранормального страдают от строгого наказания, установленного архангелами. Так что, вернувшись, она отбивает человеческие аттаки, раскрывает заговоры, борется с чиновичьей бюрократией и депрессивными подростками, в то же время планируя как ворваться в Ад и вызволить отттуда падшего ангела.

Нелёгкая жизнь, однако скучать здесь не приходится, да и Кербаси скрашивает моменты сухим, чёрным юмором. Я как обычно с удовольствием читала о Мелене с её несгибающейся волей, отношениями с Люкасом и верными друзьями. Путешествие в Ад было классной боевой сценой, однако путешествие в Рай окажется милейшим сюрпризом для читателя. *подмигивая*

В общем, твёрдая четвёрка. Хорошая концовка, а характер Кори (подруги Мелены) - вообще супер. Я надеюсь, что следующий спин-офф окажется как раз про неё.

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
