I'm so very sad that this series is ending. I will miss these characters and this world, which has been so lovingly created by Cynthia Luhrs. If you are new to the Shadow Walker world I urge you to treat yourself to reading this series. It has it all Highlander Hotties, Rogue Pirates, Good and Evil Fae, Dragons, and Gods.
Once I started this book, I was hooked! Half way through I was posting that it was one of the best books of the series. This was a sad story to tell, Monroe's story. We've seen the drinking begin to tragically disassemble his life piece by piece and it all comes to a head in this final installment of the series. The story is solid and ties everything up so we are not left questioning anything.
I will be honest, and it's not just because I did not want this series to end; the last 25% of the book was jam packed with everything. In making certain that everything was tied up, it may have hindered some of the narrative prose that I've come to love from this author. There was enough going on for an additional book. I would have like to have had the final war more detailed and I would have loved to have some sense of what the new world was like. Especially with it's newest inhabitants - don't want to spoil the surprise!
Overall, I really enjoyed the book, I loved the series, and I can't wait to read more from Cynthia Luhrs.
