Okay if you’ve been following my reviews of Spearwood you will know that the last volume didn’t impress me. In fact I was a bit disappointed. Well, I’m happy to say that this volume DOES NOT disappoint!
As with the previous volumes, volume 7 picks up right where six left off. Minos is in Avalon’s apartment ready to escort her to dinner. The guys are still brainwashed. Bullock is still in the dungeon and yay!!! Lusk is on Avalon’s side. Avalon’s goals this volume are simple, save Bullock and fix the guys. Sounds easy right? (Note my sarcasm 😉 )
Oh Avalon this is the girl I’ve missed!!! The last few volumes have been full of grief and just not the independent, snarky, eat you alive girl I fell in love with at the beginning of the series. But I’m happy to report she gets her priorities in line this volume and actual DOES something! She takes a few minutes to not be the victim and think through the situation that has gotten her here. She’s smart and it shows in this volume 😀
Then there’s the guys (((swoon))) I’ve always been a fan of Lusk, but I think my ship may be changing, that or I just can’t make up my mind who I like 😉 Dante is prominent in this volume, more so than he has in previous which makes sense. He is supposed to be Avalon’s boyfriend / secret lover in his addled mind-warped brain. Lusk is present but only just and then there’s Bullock. I really didn’t like this guy in the beginning. I thought he was a jerk and I wanted Avalon to tell him to go shove it somewhere, but he’s kind of grown on me. He has this confidence that just….I don’t know and I think Avalon is subconsciously VERY aware of him.
The main plot of this series has focused on Avalon being the one to break the curse and I think we are finally getting closer to the middle of the plot. At least I think we are, I could be wrong though. A lot happens in this volume and of course the ending…..ugh!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME OREN?!?! I can’t handle endings like that!!! I just can’t!!!
Overall, I think I know romance-wise where Avalon is heading, again I could be wrong though. The story, Avalon and her boys, I love it all! I can’t wait to see where the series is going and what is in store next for Avalon. If you enjoy urban fantasy, pop-culture, and serials I suggest you check this series out.
Final Conclusion: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
