Description:

Ash is tightening the noose on her enemies…
… and losing her grip on reality.

Ash’s revenge plans for Chariot and Isaac Montefiore take a surreal turn when Isaac’s wife hires Ash to retrieve an item that Isaac is obsessed with finding. Ash takes the job, but this quest throws her back into Levi’s path and puts Rafael in grave danger.

Meanwhile, Ash runs across a crime victim who possesses mysterious magic. Ash’s search for the attacker once again pits her against the Queen of Hearts and sends Ash down the rabbit hole of what’s real. Sanity is highly overrated, anyway, right?

To top it all off, Ash’s mother is being blackmailed by someone threatening to expose Ash as a Rogue unless Talia resigns from her political career for good. Talk about putting the “fun” in family dysfunction.

Review:

Got this from the KU Library.

It's the last book in the series! I'll be honest, I put off finishing this because I wasn't ready to say goodbye to this group of people. They'd grown on me over the last couple of books and I wanted their adventures to go on for a while longer.

This starts with Ashira casing Isaac Montefiores' place, wondering if he has any incriminating evidence inside that she can use to bring down Chariot and the ten members of it that want immortality. Add in her mums blackmailer, Isaac's wife - Levi's mum - wanting to leave him and Ash's split from Levi and nothing is going right for her.

I did enjoy this. I've enjoyed this series as a whole. Everything comes to a head in this one. Ashira needs to take down Chariot with the help of the friends she's picked up on her journey. It's not an easy fight but good triumphs over evil - as it should!

The relationship between Levi and Ash has changed a lot over this series. They never particularly liked each other growing up but they became sort of frenemies with benefits that then grew into friends with benefits and then into a relationship. It was nice seeing them grow closer and finally admitting that they had feelings for each other. The ultimatum at the end of the last book actually felt like a punch to the gut to me because I'd grown to like these two people but luckily they sorted their thoughts and feelings out in the end.

I've read and enjoyed both this series and the author Nava Katz series, too, and I look forward to reading more of her work.
