The author is really increasing the heat with each book, and now the dramatic developments from the first couple of books seem like peanuts compared to the culmination of this book. And if any of the previous books seemed like a game changer, they weren't, this book was.
I don't even know how to express my feelings for this book. Literally everything I might say is a spoiler. I can say that Dustin grows and yet stays the same lovable clumsy little cutie we met in the first book. So much changes with this book, and I even expected it to be the last, but fortunately the author has other plans.
I can say though that events in this book are epic and that I loved it to pieces. I can't get enough of this author and I jumped into his new series immediately.
The series is best read in order. Reading order is Penumbra (Darkling Mage Book 0), Shadow Magic (Darkling Mage Book 1), Dark Harvest (Darkling Mage Book 2), Grave Intentions (Darkling Mage Book 3), Oblivion Heart (Darkling Mage Book 4), Midnight's Son (Darkling Mage Book 5), Last Rites (Darkling Mage Book 6), Blood Pact (Darkling Mage Book 7), Crystal Brawl (Darkling Mage Short Story) in Urban Magic – Hungry, Young & Clever: An Urban Fantasy Anthology, Soul Fire (Darkling Mage Book 8) and Endless Knight (Darkling Mage Book 9). The new series featuring one of the characters is coming Ex Nihilo (Sins of the Father Book 0), Fallen Reign (Sins of the Father Book 1), False Gods (Sins of the Father Book 2), and Morning Star (Sins of the Father Book 3).
