5 Stars for Drowning In The Dark by Pippa DaCosta
Fighting. It’s the only thing matters now. Fight because she can’t sleep-her parasite sees to that. Fight to try and save her city. Fight because it’s what she does best. And every move is watched by the Prince of Greed. Mammon/Akil is always there, watching and waiting.
The veil is close now. Demons are coming through every day, and the Institute has their hands full. After burning to the ground, Adam had to find new digs to continue his “research”. Muse has no idea where the new facility is, but she knows Adam has a half-bloods there, and that she must find them.
Without giving away the book, this installment was GREAT! So many twists and turns…the first chapter nearly caused me heart failure! And then we learn a secret from Ryder. A scary, gut wrenching secret that causes Muse to double her efforts to find Adam and the Institute. Muse still has her past owner deep inside her, wrapped around her heart, squeezing the life out of her haunting what little sleep she gets with horrid images, and the only way to dislodge him is to let Akil in. As Stephen says “Well done. You swapped one psycho for another”. And let’s not forget the title “Mother Of Destruction” bestowed on Muse…how easy it would be to just let go and become Her.
There is so much going on in this story…Fighting, confessions, and destruction. Amazing, scary, and important discoveries. So many things change, and connections are made. I’m looking forward to book 5 (Ties That Bind) almost as much as I’m dreading it! These charters have become close to me, and I can’t imagine Muse’s story ending.
The author, Pippa DaCost, has asked me to read and review this eARC (electronic Advanced Reader Copy). I jumped at the chance because the story of Muse, Akil, Stephen and all of the other characters are fascinating, intriguing, and bound to me almost as tightly as Akil is to Muse.
Please do yourself a favor, and pick up this series. You really need to read the previous books in the Veil Series before starting this one. It’s much better to start at the beginning with Beyond The Veil (book one), and enjoy the entire story.
