A crazy prophecy claiming she is to marry the faerie king Rhys, a forbidden love with the yummy Shadow Michael, her BFF is a demon slayer, and Nikki still doesn't have a complete hold on her Darkling powers. To top it all off, a new prophecy says that there is something dark out to get Nikki... something that wants her dead. Nikki has more on her plate than your average teenage girl. But then again, she isn't normal. She is a Demon Princess after all.
And then there's Michael, after killing the Shadow and saving Nikki in the Underworld, Michael has been acting kind of strange lately. It is said that Shadows have more power than imaginable and that they are way dangerous. Nikki doesn't know what to think about this, I mean, he is just the sweetest thing ever! I did, however, have my own doubts. I was just so worried about Michael! And so was Nikki! And then the end of the book... *sobs* Oh my gods, what happened to Michael?! I need to know!
And Rhys? UGH! Love triangles are the WORST! I guess I don't absolutely hate him, I just hate the idea of the love triangle. By the end of this book I actually sort of liked him... but I do prefer me some Michael ;)
One character that surprised me was Chris. As much as I hated him in the previous books, I actually felt kind of sorry for him in this one. He's acting all withdrawn and has this crazy aura about him. I felt so bad for him! But what he can do is so amazing and very surprising!
And Nikki's BFF Melinda, oh boy! Thing's are very strained between them. Nikki knows Melinda's deep dark secret and Nikki is horrified at the thought of Melinda finding out what she is. And without giving too much away, all I'm saying is, she should've told Melinda the truth in the first place!
The showdown at the end was amazing! But the "dark force" that is after Nikki... yeah, I was not surprised. It was pretty obvious, actually. That's the one thing about this book I am not liking: the fact that it is so predictable! But not everything is predictable. There are a couple of things that shocked me, so it's not all bad.
As I said before, I absolutely love this world, and I cannot wait to see how things will turn out... especially for Michael because oh my gods! Cliffhanger! I need the next book, like, now!
