I was a little disappointed with the epilogue. I was hoping for something longer and fuller of glimpses of their life after all these things that happend... Although I loved Tushar and Holly's story! <3

So....Venom can cook! When I read that part my eyebrows went up. I wonder if the rest of the Seven know about this about him. Holly is a lucky woman.

When Venom said to Holly about his decision about being Made, how he was Made, and then his family's decision to turn away from him, I was sad and angry at the same time.

It was nice to read about Dimitri, Honor, Janvier, Ashwini, and Vivek. The reader gets a great look into how the Tower functions under Dimitri's leadership. Also, the beginning of the book was a great overlap from Archangel's Heart. We now can read Ilium's side of the argument with Aodhan.

Great book! Can't wait to read the next Guild Hunter's book. :)

I am so wanting the not so short story of meeting Holly's family! I am always amazed at how everything you write just leaves me waiting impatiently for more. Thank you!

Great book! Loved seeing how the whole team
Aacrually works together. I would have loved to see Venom meet Holly’s whole family. It was great to see Illum’s side of the argument as well.

Very interesting book. Can’t wait for the next segment!

Venom and Holly's story was such a heartwarming respite from the very real woes that plague us today. I too am looking forward to the dinner to meet Holly's parents and hope you gift your readers with a front row view. Thank you for another great story!!

I liked Venom and Holly's story !!! :)

Would have loved a longer epilogue !! Especially b'cos this story happens at the same time as Archangel's heart !
You always leave me hungering for more of the story !! A specific talent ! :)

May be though you should now consider a small story where he finally admits that he sports a chink in his armor too (according to his own definition); just like Raphael !! And that such a thing is not a weakness. Neither in him nor in his Sire.

I constantly found him irritating in this aspect where he does not realize that it is Elena's love that makes Raphael strong. His blinkers need to be torn off ! :)

It is okay that he is irksome - I mean Dmitri also does not really like Elena but to be blind is not good I thought.

Oh well ..

The heated stone was a surprise !

I found it really puzzling that a remnant/phantom of Uram could even be half-alive that way ! Was it done intentionally by Uram would be interesting to know. I mean it even has jagged wings !!!

I love all the books in this series, but this was my favorite hands down. I loooooooved it so much. Venom and Holly are both such interesting characters with so many layers and their romance felt so true and real because they really got to know and love each other over the course of this book.

My favorite things about this amazing story:
-Venom cooking, man that was unexpected and sexy and wonderful
-That it is a story about accepting who you are and loving someone as they are, about "normal" being totally overrated and finding your identity. Such a wonderful and important message!
-Venom and Holly both accepting the others' strengths, I especially loved that Venom never tried to shield or hide Holly, he worked alondside her and they treated each other as equals, I loved that so much
-Holly being chided by her mom and her mom's friend for hissing at handsome men in the middle of the night ahahahaha
- Holly not assuming anyones sexuality (mad points for that!)
- seeing all the other characters again, especially Ash and Janvier
-Holly standing up for herself and her right to live, you go girl!

I reread it already and I know it will forver be one of my favorites. Now I really really want to read the next book in the series, I cannot wait to find out more about the Legion, about Elenas powers and Raphaels cascade born abilities, about Aodhan and Bluebell's stories (I really hope they make up soon, I hate that they are figting!!). This is such a cool universe to get lost in, my favorite book series of all time. <3

This book is already one of my favorites.
I hope there will come more of Holly and Venom in the future books.

Venom meeting Holly's family would be great.
Also how Michaela would react to her. I meen... somehow she's her and Urams 'child'🤔🤐..- Or I'm seeing this wrong?
And I would love to see more of the Legion. I liked their interaction with Holly.

I have to admit I am not a huge fan of Holly/ Sorrow. And in my opinion she would have made a better villain especially now that Lijuan is sleeping.
But I still liked the book, for me it was better than Archangel's Heart.
