In the finale to the series, since finding out about his awesome powers, the FBI have been working with Cassel. Cassel is actually thinking about going straight and joining the Feds officially. But something doesn’t feel right in this latest mission. The Feds have asked Cass to take out Patton, but he fears that the Feds are double crossing him. Is it possible that the good guys aren’t so good after all?
I love Cass, I really, really do, but his constant fixation on Lila almost drove me insane! I’ve mentioned it since the series began and it still holds true: I just don’t like Lila. I don’t see what Cassel sees in her! Though, okay, I admit, I don’t dislike her as much as I did in the beginning. Probably because she seemed to not be in this as much? Cassel surely noticed, but it was nice for me. And even though she was absent quite a bit, she was not absent from Cassel’s mind. *sigh*
But when she was around--I just hate that Cassel drops his life just like that for her without thinking it through for a second.
Another character I hated was Cassel’s brother Barron. I was starting to like again, but then ugh! He started being his same old lying self again!
Why does he do this to his own family?! I don’t understand!
As for the other supporting characters, I absolutely loved them! Especially Daneca and Sam!
Overall, I thought Black Heart had a very action packed, intriguing story! I loved the way it developed and how freaking smart Cassel was at dealing with Patton! I really loved this world and will miss it alot! The very, very end though, it was... fine. I felt like he threw his life away. Like he could've done SO much better! But, in a way, I can understand, because this is his life. It just made me sad. But overall, I really enjoyed the journey Cassel has gone through. And I especially loved that it was in his POV because I rarely read book with a male POV. It was very refreshing!
Cassel, I will miss you.
