This is the 6th book in the Harley Merlin series.
Harley has a game plan to stop the third ritual: infiltrate the Cult of Eris and steal back her mother’s soul. But her only way in is through her devious half-brother Finch—the same guy who was Katherine’s most devoted bootlicker not too long ago.
Joining a cult counts as sibling bonding time, right?
Left with no choice but to break Finch out of prison, Harley must play the part of a loyal cultist. Within Katherine’s inner circle, deadly initiation trials and watchful enemies make every moment a battle for survival.
Harley hasn’t forgotten that Finch once belonged to the cult himself, and she wonders if she’ll end up with a valuable new ally… or a knife in the back.
I absolutely love this series, and this book definitely didn’t let me down. It was exciting from the start, the storyline is great, the characters great and the plot continued to develop well.
Harley is continuing to be a brilliant character. She is so fierce and brave and just wants to do good by everyone. She is slowly getting a grip of her powers and overwhelming amount of chaos in this book. There were some touching moments with certain family aspects as well which were enjoyable to read.
Finch’s point of view was fascinating to read. He has been this big criminal from the start, so getting a look inside his head was interesting. The others in the rag team were naturally weary of him, but seeing his view on things was a stark change to what we should think about him. Seeing his relationship with Harley develop was great to read. They both long for a true family, and yet, with eachother, they have it.
The storyline developed well and moved at a brilliant fast pace. Getting a glimpse into Katherine’s lear was interesting. It’s no surprise that Katherine keeps succeeding in the rituals and I almost want her to keep doing so, just so this series doesn’t end.
Overall, this series is still one of my favourites. I think if you haven’t embraced yourself into Harley Merlin’s world, then you are really missing out.
My rating: 5/5*
