What was wrong with me to antagonise a vampire of his standing to such a degree? I knew I had become too rebellious, too sure of my own place in this world. I was aware that Dark had been encroaching, that I played so often in its shadow I was losing sight of the sun, of my Light. There were times when I truly felt consumed in anger, for all that had happened, for all that I had suffered and lost.
Leaving Auckland and moving to London, Lucinda has to learn new rules and assimilate into a new life she has no love for. Rebelling against everything that just doesn't seem fair, Lucinda upsets not only the new Master of the City, but the local shape shifter pack as well. Not to mention her fairy liaison and the Iunctio itself.
Vampires demand her attention and covet her power. Fairies demand her compliance and seek revenge. And the shape shifters; it's any one's guess what they want, but Lucinda is sure that she's registered on their radar, whatever their radar is set to detect.
A dreary, Gothic, monstrosity of a house, a Nosferatin partner who is scared of the dark, too many rules and too many obligations and things are beginning to fall apart. But, Lucinda is a fighter and fighting for the innocents in her city is not all that she is determined to do. She'll fight for her freedom and for the Light - even as she slowly realises just how far she is already entwined with the Dark.
In the seventh book of the series, Lucinda is not doing too great. She's having a hard time dealing with living in London, not to mention Michel won't talk to her about things that involve the Champion, and then she can feel the Dark clinging to her. Not only does she have to worry about all of that, but there could be a chance she can get things back to how they use to be. But if she doesn't work together with her kindred, then more bad things might start to happen as well.
This book was really good! I loved how Lucinda and Michel were trying to adjust to their new lives, and make everything work. It was hard to watch them go through that, but in the end I think they did really well. I also really enjoyed getting to see Lucinda battle her Dark. I loved that! Now, I can not believe the story will end in the next book, but I'm extremely excited for it!
