Series: Darkest London #5
William Thorne and Holly Evernight were held hostage in Shadowdance. They both suffered from that experience. Will was in physical and mental agony because his body wasn’t meant to bond with metal. He was out of his mind and decided to go after Holly since her invention is the cause of his troubles. As it turned out Will wasn’t the only one after Holly.
Holly and Will were likable characters, but I didn’t like them as a couple. They were too different. I didn’t understand the attraction beyond the physical aspect. Holly was not an emotional person. It seemed like she got emotionally wrapped up in Will far too quickly for her personality type. Will jumped from hate to love very fast. Their relationship wasn’t bad, but I just wasn’t feeling it.
The scenes with Adam and Eliza May were enlightening. I definitely want to know more about them. I enjoyed getting to know Sin. I don’t want to say who he is because it will spoil some major events in Winterblaze. It would be cool if he was the main character of a future book. Adam, Eliza, and Sin all have connections to the fae that haven’t been completely explored, so there are plenty of good things to look forward to in this series.
