Similar to the other books in this series, I’m in awe and a little bit of shock. I can’t believe this series is now over. It seems like only a few days ago I was falling in love with Des and Callie and their complicated love story. The Thief was stealing soldiers still, and Callie was trapped in Karnon’s prison. It feels like we’ve come a long way from seeing Callies’ wings appear to now seeing her rule with Des by her side over the Kingdom of the Night.
This book was…wow. Seeing Des’ life story and how he came to be the infamous Bargainer was incredible to see. I loved seeing all of the events I’ve been wondering about unfold right in front of me, and it was so cool to see how he became who he is today.
This book is one of my new favorites. Honestly, I don’t know how I went so long without reading this! If you’ve checked out my Twitter then you definitely saw how much I adored this book while reading it, and you know I’m giving it a 5-star review! The world-building, character development, and slow-burn tension were incredible.
