5 starsDespite I loved the series, Derek and Sofia s final story was such a disappointment Actually, the series much to my surprise slowly but sure meet its down fall I can t help to not notice things that I disliked in each sequel after book 4.
Looking back now, I think I can bear reading a lot of POV, if it means that I can get the clarity in the story I don t know, maybe Bella Forrest read my review or other Shaddicts have the same thoughts as mine about those POV, but this book is told mostly from Sofia and Derek s POV Just like the first book, A Shade of Vampire The problem is both Derek and Sofia barely know anything Reading their final journey to find True Sanctuary was like walking in the dark They don t have any idea what they are facing and what they have to do It was just so frustrating I usually enjoy reading something that still unclear along the story as it sometimes means it s unpredictable and there s twist in the story Not in this case Derek and Sofia just go with the flow and mostly end up asking each other What now Or Now what Hence I felt like there isn t clarity and certainty of where the story will go.
As Derek and Sofia keep in blind most of the time, other characters have the answer of their questions It reveals slowly along the story Unfortunately, before the answers finally reveals, I was already frustrated with them and the story Thus it made me bored to death I was so eager to finish it Not because it s so engaging but because so I can put it down for good so that I can move on to other books.
There are also things that really annoyed me while I read Just like Derek and Sofia, I have questions about so many things Some of them are finally answered but some other are just left behind Even the characters who have answers, can t answers those questions And they are so casually tell me they don t have the answers because it happened a long time ago or never happen before They left it behind the reasons and I just couldn t accept it.
I think this book isn t about vampires any, as most of the time they rely on the witches warlock So you see, whenever things get hard, the witches warlock come to help them And suddenly it solves easily It made the war that I really looking forward felt anticlimactic And there is also thing that comes out of the blue, much for the characters convenience I just don t know what to call it, too coincidence or too easy According to Goodreads, 2 stars means it was an okay book I think in a way it was an okay conclusion for Derek and Sofia I liked the ending, for sure, too bad there are also a lot of things I disliked I think I need a break from this series, though after this one there is a spin off of Kiev s story And who knows whether there will be another spin off of the vampire saga or not.
Brilliant, I ve loved it all, so emotional but everything s happy at the end Can t wait for shade of kiev I enjoy the series although it gets a bit draggy at times and with the latest book I was kinda disappointed with the ending I would like it if things worked for Sophia and Derek.
Glad it s overGlad it s overI really enjoyed the first five books, but I was less impressed with books 6 7 The beginning five were so great that I just couldn t put them down This one I read quickly just to see how the author was going to resolve the series I think they got to far fetched for me in the last couple with the hawks and bodyless elders that possessed vampires.
A Break of Day is the finale of one of my favorite series, A Shade of Vampire Finally it has come to a conclusion I have to admit, after reading the book, I kind of miss the whole series I miss the characters that I have grown to love since last year I miss the beauty of The Shade, the all consuming and magical world of the vampires, and of course, the beautiful characters Okay, now I m getting all sentimentalStay strong, Sofia You re no stranger to storms The waves may rage, but you can rise above themAnyway, the book is good I admit that I have greater expectations since I was totally imagining a different plot, twist, and ending But although it didn t exactly meet my expectations, I was relieved because of its happy ending.
What I admire about this book, despite the tormenting events and situations that happened to the characters all throughout the book, is how Derek and Sofia s love became even stronger I can t help but fall in love with them all over again And oh, the way Derek describes Sofia it s deep and emotionalSofia The love of my life The person without whom all would be for nothing My ever burning light My break of dayI think the characters deserve the good things that happen to them in the end and I m really happy for them This book is memorable and it s the series that will totally stay on my mind My Rating for this Book 4 Stars It wasn t a perfect book but its ending is satisfying and unforgettable Book review originally posted on my blog Please oh please let book 7 be the last of the series There really shouldn t of been a book six, but after reading all six books I m hoping it ends with a happy ending Otherwise I m so done.
Too far fetchedAnd too much going on I loved this series and the way it was progressing but when people were turning into Hawks Nah It was too silly for me.
