The Dark Calling Reviews

  • hailey

    It's been a long time coming, I've shed some tears and angry talked to myself a little bit, but I'm finally done with the book.

    I have to say, though I felt like my heart had been thrown threw a blender and then glued back together again, I think there couldn't have been a better plot sequence to the book.

    I applaud Kresley for another fabulous book.

    I have several theories lined up. Most revolve around the present cast just in

    And that's all, folks. Tell me what you think; we have plenty of time until Spring 2017 to nail it down.

    After a year and (almost) half wait for this book, I thought maybe some of the fascination of the book would have rubbed off. I was happy to find out that wasn't the case...

    And any details that I thought would have been forgotten, fell right back into place like there was no wait at all.

    If those weren't clues as to how amazing this series is then maybe not being able to put the book down and reading it straight through in one day was another big clue. I just couldn't get enough.

    So, to anyone who hasn't read this series and for some reason you're reading this review for book five, what are you waiting for? Yes, it's touted as a YA book but if you've read Kresley Cole at all, you know that doesn't stop her from writing some amazing romance...and angst! That's right, baby, the magic word!

    I'm not going to rehash the story from the beginning and if you haven't read it, then the rest of the review is not going to make much sense.

    Seriously though, WTH #1? I totally got the Hangman wrong but since I don't have a lot of knowledge about tarot cards, I'm hoping you-know-who #1 will be something...

    but then again, maybe just being himself is amazing enough? There just has to be a reason.

    And WTH #2? That was pretty excruciating when the Hangman worked his powers. I felt so bad for Evie and again, when you-know-who #2 was able to get out...that had to be horrific for him.

    And WTH #3?

    My heart hurts over that one. I kept hoping he would come back or something...anything! Ugh!

    Thank you Jaysus! #4!! HE IS BACK!! I was absolutely in heaven with

    Their reuniting, their night together, how he always,

    takes care of her. I mean, come on, can we just say Li-

    . That's pretty impressive even if you are #TeamDeath, you have to hand it to him that he was pretty badass!

    And as is everything Kresley Cole, she had to absolutely kill me with that ending. I mean I never felt so hopeful when the brake lights came on. :'(

    The next book is the last...and I have no idea how everything is going to go. Obviously a huge battle because at least two more need to go and then who knows? The one thing I do know is that it's going to be simply fantastic.

    BTW, have you heard of Brother Husbands? #TeamJaric all the way!! ;)

    I need

    There Can Never. Be. Enough. Aric. (And more

    would be nice *wink wink*).

    Ok, KC. I can see what you’re plotting on. And I don’t like it.

    Please just don’t go there.

    For the love of God, just let the poor, sweet, sexy man have his HEA! Hasn’t he suffered enough??

    I’m ready for you,

    . Don't let me down.

    Reverse perverse, ya'll!

    Well, wasn't this a heart-wrenching, controversial, and frustrating little number? KC still brought it though, I'll give her that. She is an evil genius, that one.

    What's important this time around: character building. We continue to peel back the layers, and our favorite tragic hero, our scrumptious little villain Death, isn't left unscathed. Actually, he's treated like shit throughout the entire book. But I have to tell myself (after several glasses of wine) that this is crucial for the grand finale. I have faith that it is necessary growth for his ultimate HEA!

    KC amazes me with each new installment.

    And Evie...well, she's a bitter pill to swallow this time around. In the immortal words of Patrick Joules, she's "boffing" everyone. Yup, she loves boffing Aric, but will always run to Jack for some good boffing any time he's around. Her flip-flopping is getting old. And they adore her no matter what. They will sacrifice everything for her. Does this girl have a sparkly cupcake-flavored v-jay or something?? It’s just frustrating that she holds both men to completely different standards. Jack can do no wrong, and Aric is always the villain.

    KC, please don't turn this into some polyamorous, ménage situation. Where all three get cozy in the castle, raise Tee together, and then Evie alternates boffing one of her boy toys each night.

    Also, no matter who Evie-of-the-Magical-Vagina ends up with (and by that, I mean it better be Aric) it shouldn’t be by default (i.e., because one dies or leaves because they think that's better for her). Let it be for the right reasons, non?

    Until next time, darlings!

    TEAM JACK FOREVER!

    I don't care what others say, I will ALWAYS be team Jack. Forever and always. Evie chose HIM. SHe chose HIM. And in the end, it's about what Evie wants, not what readers want, because it's Kresley's character. If Kresley sees Evie and Aric having the last say, then....I'll just have to carve my heart out and somehow move on. BUT if Cole wants Evie and Jack to be endgame, then Y'ALL JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT OKAY?! Like yeah, things aren't looking too hot for them right now, with

BUT if Cole wants Evie and Jack to be endgame, then Y'ALL JUST HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT OKAY?! Like yeah, things aren't looking too hot for them right now, with you know, Death and little mini Deaths, but Evie isn't truly happy. I know it, Evie knows it, Cole knows it, we all know it. Because she chose Jack. End. OF.

    Plus, I just seriously need my Evie/Jack reunion now. When this book comes out, I will have been waiting for more than two years. 3 It better be darn worth the wait, that's all I'm saying.

  • Alexandra Harris

    Well sh!t.

    I told myself after the last book and the “fun” twist that I was done. But I’m a sucker for punishment and I read this one.

    The reason this is rated 2.5 stars is Jack and Aric... that’s it.

    I literally can’t compose myself enough to write this review. That was the most pitiful ending ever. And if rumors are true and this is the last book.... Lemme tell ya. I’m disappointed.

    I’m going to come back to this review in a few days. I’m just so annoyed right now....

    He deserves his son-To know him, see his son grow and be his father

    He deserves an end to his misery and suffering and never ending disappointments and pain

    AND WE NEED TO HAVE AN ENDING!
