I may have reached my breaking point. As if trying to graduate from a school for supernaturals isn’t stressful enough, my relationship status has gone from complicated to a straight-up dumpster fire.
Oh, and the Bloodletter has decided to drop a bomb of epic proportions on us all…
Then again, when has anything at Katmere Academy not been intense?
And the hits just keep coming. Jaxon’s turned colder than an Alaskan winter. The Circle is splintered over my upcoming coronation. As if things couldn’t get worse, now there’s an arrest warrant for Hudson’s and my supposed crimes—which apparently means a lifetime prison sentence with a deadly unbreakable curse.
Choices will have to be made…and I fear not everyone will survive.
This will be a spoiler free review. I listened to the audiobook via Audible and the ending of this book has me Not Okay.
This book was good – but it wasn’t my favorite. One, it was long. Like, really long. I know it’s 600 pages, but I listened to the audiobook at 1.7x speed and it still took me like 3.5 days to listen to it. For how much happens in this book, it seemed to happen at a snail’s pace.
Not to mention that it felt a little choppy – like scenes didn’t run smoothly together.
But like with every other book in this series, the ending leaves you desperate for more. I legitimately stopped working and just said, “fuck” and threw my headphone on the table. And then I started groaning, because how can it just end like that. How am I supposed to wait to find out if my theories and suspicions are true? How can that be the ending to this book?
Needless to say, it left me with an intense desire for the next one.
And despite it feeling long, it still had some really great moments, and I did really enjoy it.
One thing that did surprise me, were my feelings towards Grace. Through Crave and Crush I loved her. I loved her whole persona, but something changed. The way she is back and forth between Jaxon and Hudson was annoying.
Like, Jaxon is good, but Hudson is better.
And if you’ve read the book, you know why. He’s just the better choice. I don’t know, maybe I’m being heartless, but the wishy-washy back and forth “I need to spare his feelings” was exhausting and annoying. It created so much unnecessary drama and tension.
I’m 100% Team Hudson, so maybe that’s just it.
He was just so good in this book.
The way everything plays out in the end…phew. I wasn’t prepared.
Actually, there were quite a few shocking moments that I wasn’t prepared for.
There were also some absolutely heart wrenching scenes, and I just wanted to hug Flint and Hudson.
I loved the introduction of some new characters and I can’t wait to see how they come into play in the final book. I want to see them again, so they’d better show up.
I honestly don’t know what else to say – because I still don’t know how I feel. I loved the book, but what the fuck was the ending?! I’m not okay. I have so many questions and my thoughts are still all over the place. I can’t wait to see how this all ends, and how they take on King Vampire Asshole.
It better be satisfying af, because if they peace talk their way out of the big final showdown, I will riot.
This was a good third book, it expanded on the characters and the world. While it was a little long and disjointed, it was still enjoyable as hell and I’m still very much trash for this series. It’ll be interesting to see what happens next and what impact Hudson’s comment at the end of the book will have. I’m lowkey terrified, and if it’s what I think it is, I might still riot.
You should definitely pick this up – especially if you’ve already read Crush. You need to fall in love with Hudson.

I feel like I need to give this series another shot. I DNFed the first book, but the more I hear about it, the more I feel like it’s something I’d love.

Yes! Do it!
The first book is full of second hand embarrassment – just don’t take it super seriously. It makes fun of itself. Plus you need to truly meet Hudson – he’s superior. 🙈
