Hey guys! The weekend is done and I'm dreading the week ahead but I think these few chapters have managed to cure my Monday blues. I told you the next few chapters were going to be big right?
! SPOILER ALERT ! The following post contains spoilers for the chapters 27 to 31. So unless you’ve read them, DON’T PROCEED ! SPOILER ALERT !
-S P O I L E R S-
First off all that domestic fluff? Aaaaaah it all just fed my soul. I am crazy for these two soft kids just having time to tease each other and be romantic. Granted one is apparently a 1000 year old immortal but shhhhhh. Watching them flirt and plan their future had me smiling uncontrollably. And eight kids? *side eye at Edan*
Although the mood did take a turn when the reached the island of Padua! The island is eerie and spooky and I just knew something was going to go wrong.
The vision that Maia was trapped in was so upsetting! Sometimes the best dreams are nightmares in disguise, because you know that they will never come true. Seeing Maia with her intact family, and how happy she was? It broke my heart. How much strength would it have taken, to look at something you'd give nearly anything to have and say no?
And then we meet the demon behind it all. Bandur sounds terrifying and I was at the edge of my seat the whole time Maia was fighting him. When she managed to stab him and escape, I could finally breathe.
But it wasn't over? And it got even worse??? As if Vachir and his men pursuing them wasn't enough, we've Bandur and ghosts too? I thought that Edan would manage to whip up something to save themselves this time but he couldn't and now I am distressed.
HE SACRIFICED HIMSELF FOR MAIA. He literally gave up the little freedom he had to save Maia's life! Imagine being confined to that island for an eternity with only the ghosts for company. All the angst in this chapter had me in tears, especially the part where he told Maia to find another lucky boy to marry.
Why do authors torture us so? We've still got one more part so hope that it gets better!
