The relationship between Ethan and Merit was the most enticing part of this series. The two quickly became one of my absolute favorite couples in an Urban Fantasy series. After the whammy of an ending in the last book, I know I was one of many readers that were anxious about book five. I'll admit, I knew who was behind the magical imbalance pretty early on. But, I still found the mystery entertaining. I just missed the banter and tension between Ethan and Merit. Honestly, I couldn't possibly begin to guess where Neill will take the rest of the series. She definitely keeps her readers guessing.
