⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Betrayal, Death, Destruction, and Desperation.
The conclusion of the Blood and Thorns Duet has many secrets coming to light with twists and turns. There is betrayal on multiple levels, death of so many innocents, the close destruction of a brotherhood, and the desperation of a man that is determined to find the truth and protect what is his at any and all costs.
Aria has blocked out so much of her past and when it begins to see the light of day, the danger is at every turn. She finds herself in dangerous situations constantly and has to fight for the strength within to survive, she also has to find the strength to make the correct decision when given two options from Lucca. Can she see past the hurt, betrayal, and pain to follow the path with Lucca to happiness? Will the get the chance for happiness?
Lucca finds betrayal at every turn it seems. The men and friends he thought he always has on his side are dropping like flies to turn on him and betray his trust. There are two that are the most painful for him, but it’s true that you find out who your real friends are when you’re in trouble and those that are standing beside you and helping the most are who you can trust. Lucca is realizing that he does have a heart in his chest, and it has always only beat for Aria. Now he has to convince her that they are meant to be together, but he will give her a choice, if he has to.
I loved this conclusion to the Duet. It was action packed and suspenseful, keeping me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Aria and Lucca had a special relationship that was damaged and almost destroyed and they had to fight for everything. I loved the characters and the story. I loved how the Romanov’s are part of the story and the Syndicate. I give the story a 5-star review and look forward to more books by Faith Summers.
