I enjoyed this book so much. It's been a while since I've read an adult paranormal romance, and this did not disappoint! The characters—all of them—were very well fleshed out, even ones without their own bodies—like the demon of Misery. Part of this is because even though I haven't read the first 12 books (though now I'm definitely going to—and the back of the book actually summarizes each of the previous books), I got a sense of the history and complexity of each character.
Most importantly, Cameo and Lazarus were both awesome on their own as well as a couple. She is a kickass fighter with a smart mouth and the heart-wrenching and isolating problem of dealing with the demon of Misery that pains almost everyone around her, except Lazarus and her friend Violet, who was also awesome. There comes a part in the second half of the novel when Cameo is so overcome by Misery's influence, and it really hit home with me, as someone who has struggled with depression. It made me connect with her and Lazarus more than ever, though by that point I was already very invested.

I really enjoyed this book. Not only was Cate and Ash's story awesome, but we got to see more of Jim and Noelle, and all the other couples from the past books, and readers finally get to see the conclusion of Sully and Liam's story (though I'm kind of disappointed they didn't get their own book like all the heterosexual couples did).
This book was really not my cup of tea. Although the action was okay and the whole Sully and Liam subplot was interesting (more so than D and Sofia's romance, in my opinion), I found my self skimming a lot.
I enjoyed this story so much. Max and Addison got along so well, and I love that it's their love for Dylan that helps bring them together. Their shared interest to each other is perfectly mirrored in each other's POV, as is their attempts to derail their attraction was super awesome to read.
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
