Be careful who you trust.


Comments: I'm beyond the point in this series where I can give a plot summary without giving away spoilers from previous books. The story arc that has been building since book 4 comes to a close in this volume and a stunning ending sets up a new direction for book 7. I say this every time but this is a wonderful series that any vampire fan of YA is going to enjoy. No new characters are introduced in this volume but there is a setup for a new villain to come and I'm excited to read the next book, as usual! I'm just really hoping some of the characters from the Freak Show come back before the series ends.

  2. I'm a little envious that you're able to keep up with a series. I tend to lose track with all those I begin after about half way.

  4. I really need to give this series a read. I have been reading Shan's other series "Demonata" which is super so far (I'm at book 5)
