So starts the third book in Laura Kaye’s Anemoi series. I am a huge fan of all of Laura’s books, but I will admit to being obsessed with this series in particular. I thought long and hard about the rating for this book because it made me bawl my eyes out. I gave it a five star review on the fervent hope that something that happened in this book will be RECTIFIED in the next book. Though heartbreaking, it was a sure fired way to ensure readers are panting for the next book.
In the end, I had to give this book my highest recommendation because I was so emotionally invested in the characters and their stories. I am a seriously jaded reader, so when a writer can evoke such a response, they are on the very top of their game. Well done Laura, well done.
