Rating: 5 stars
*I received this novel for free in exchange for an honest review*
Like so many people I am sure, I have eagerly awaited the latest instalment of the Diabolus Chronicles and book 6 did not disappoint. The journey our reluctant heroes embark upon is perilous and right from the beginning they find themselves pursued.
This series just keeps going from strength to strength as does Pitch and Silas’ relationship. The two of them realising the depth of their feelings is tender yet heart wrenching considering what lies ahead. As is a prevalent theme in the series, we are treated to the author’s take on another local legend. The twists in this one were incredible and so fitting with the world.
The story ends on a cliff-hanger and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.
