|The Darkest Passion (Hqn)|
This is the book that started it all for me with this series. I got the ARC from Netgalley and just had to get the other books before I could read this one and I am so happy I did. I am in love with this series right now.
The Darkest Passion tells the HEA of Aeron, the keeper of the Wrath Demon. There’ve been some chapters in the previous installments where we got to see his POV and he is such a brooding character. His relationship and beliefs in terms of mortality are so extreme that i was really curious to see who his better half would be.
Wrath explores weaknesses and sins, for that reason and for seeing people all around him perish throughout the ages, Aeron can’t stand the weakness of humans and can’t understand how they can live life knowing that their days are counted without begging for more time, over and over again for more time.
Olivia is an Angel. Originally a joy-bringer, she has been elevated to warrior and her first assignment is to kill Aeron. While observing him, she feels drawn to his strength and simply refuses to complete her task. She has fallen into hell and crawled her way up to earth in search of her obsession, Aeron, asking for help and wanting to warn him that another Angel Assassin would be sent at any time now. That is the moment they finally meet in person, even though Aeron has been felling her presence, watching him, for a while now.
Olivia is a wonderful character. Being an angel she doesn’t really understand human emotions and the human ways. so it is great to see her having to cope with all that after she falls. She need to deal with pain and pleasure for the first time as well as with distrust, anger and so on. It was an amazing POV to follow, seeing and feeling with new eyes and skin and being able to do that what simply perfect.
I loved this book! I think it is my favorite in the series so far, and that is quite an accomplishment in my opinion. The path both Aeron and Olivia had to tread on to reach each other and the obstacles and the transformation that each of them need to go through are amazing and heart breaking. I wanted to give up, scream, I cried, I laughed and I feel that all just made this and even more exceptional book.
The heights to where Gena is taking this series intrigues me and I have to thank the all mighty that The Darkest Lie, Book #6, comes out only a month after this one, because the cliffhangers and open storylines that the author has left are infuriating and just make me love this series even more.
