All the stars, so many stars!! I didn’t know my heart could break so deeply. I can count on one hand how many books have gutted my soul. Sure, call me dramatic, but you read Blood and Roses and then come talk to me. This is going to be short and sweet, I’m having a hard time coming up with the correct words to put a review together so bare with me (also, I don’t want to spoil it for anyone who starts with this one).
I didn’t think reading about a Devil losing his Angel would be so devastating. I’m literally getting teary eyed thinking about it right now. Of course I knew what was coming, due to reading the Tainted Hearts Series before, but OMG! Maria and Lyov’s POV was so much more. More love, pain, beauty *sigh* While I am pretty traumatized from reading their story from them, I am grateful for it. When you hear of their love and tragedy in the first three books it’s just not the same. So as much as I hate/love Lylah for writing this book, I am so glad she gave it to us.
