So much happens in this book that sets up events to come for the rest of the series. I've read these books several times, but every time, I'm struck by something new. I gain some new insight. I form some new opinion. This re-read was no different. My opinion of one character in particular has changed drastically. And, even though I just did two posts worth of questions on this book, I found more questions still! I am endlessly amazed by Chloe Neill and her amazing skills.
|Please? Please, tell me?|
|Seriously, Celina. Get over it.|
|We are never fine when Ethan is involved.|
And, now let's talk about everyone's favorite Master. Ethan is all over the map in this book. Poor boy doesn't know what he wants or how he should go about getting it. He pushes Merit back to Morgan time and time again, while at the same time trying to keep them apart. He vacillates between being cold and aloof to her and laying on the charm so thick it's almost as thick as Merit's beloved deep dish pizza. But, Ethan does admit to respecting Merit and her abilities in this book, which is a big step towards their future relationship. He also shows a bit of his jealous side when he breaks up Morgan and Merit's date to drag her along to the rave site. He didn't have to do that, but he clearly couldn't bear the thought that Merit was with Morgan, on a real date. Ethan and Morgan have a few confrontations in the this book. They both have a hard time keeping the balance between work and personal grievances, especially Morgan. But, Ethan, being the alpha that he is, put Morgan right back in his place. But, Ethan can only deny is attraction and feelings about Merit for so long. We get a good taste of what's to come for our beloved Methan in this book. We get the library kiss and Ethan seeing Merit through the rest of her change, including feeding her his own blood. He also confides in her his fears about not being strong enough to resist Celina. Those are huge steps for him. They also give us glimpses into the passion and fire that is contained in our controlled Master.
|Yes, you Mallory.|
