Review of Volumes 1-3 here
The perversion and sexiness continues in this final entry into a series about a dhampir joining up with the grotesque-hunting church to find her sister. Despite the seemingly abrupt conclusion, we do get to meet the sister, find out more about the werewolf, and get a small glimpse of the worldbuilding.
An impressive amount of plotting and work goes in to flesh out the world in ways that hadn’t been established in the previous volumes. There’s conspiracy, there’s upheaval, and it’s a delight for people who like compelling story arcs and female characters who are unabashedly determined but also completely in love with each other. Dolores and Maria do get to have their big romance moment, and it’s so satisfying in terms of both their character journeys and the greater plot arc.
I’m a little sad that this series about sisterhood, vampires, and over-the-top violence and sexiness is over, but I really enjoyed the journey I went on with Dolores and Maria. The ending isn’t quite open-ended, but the conclusion to this sapphic madness is satisfying.
