It’s all come to a head as they attempt to find and take down Roman, as they suspect he is attempting to destroy the world.
“Hey,” Ben said in greeting. “What’s up?”
“You’re not going to like it,” Cormac said. Which was a hell of a greeting. I’d have asked, How bad could it be? But this was Cormac, and my imagination failed me.
I liked that it was a plausible way of destroying the world–the method of which had been brought up a couple books earlier. I like that kind of planning.
And I really loved the rationale as to why Kitty was important.
“But there’s one thing I couldn’t change. One part of His creation I couldn’t break: free will. No matter how monstrous I made you, the vampires and werewolves, my soldiers and my children, I couldn’t make you be monsters. You still had a choice, to follow me or not.
I’m always a fan of free will, and I love the idea that for all that monsters were made for evil, they had the free will to fight for good.
Of course most of the characters who survived earlier books made an appearance here, albeit just a brief appearance in many cases.
I’m glad I went back and re-read the series before this final book. It allowed me to see the hints she’d been dropping for quite awhile as to how things might turn out.
