Disclaimer – the author approached me and sent a free ARC digital download of the book in exchange for an honest review.
This book starts with a list of terms and characters and at this point in the series, it was very much appreciated for keeping track of who is who and words that I wasn’t sure of. An epigraph follows, some words of which I’ve found myself highlighting in this and the previous books. The epigraph gives somewhat of a philosophical outlook to some thoughts of Roxanne’s regarding good and evil which I find incredibly true when applied to humans and thus thought provoking.
Book three continues where book two left off with Roxanne finding out her true parentage and realising her mistake of binding herself to the incredibly powerful Remo Drammen. I again found myself appreciating the scene building ability of Jina and the depth she provides each scene in her books, she manages to create such a dynamic and realistic image with her words that I find myself appreciating over and over as I read more of her works.
“He was in the kitchen drinking coffee, still dressed in gray sweatpants and white tank, hair loose about his shoulders, feet bare. He looked like an exotic poet with that patrician nose and sculpted mouth, the vivid blue of his eyes contrasting with all that glossy black hair. A beautiful exotic poet.”Roxanne Fosch
As I find the end of the book drawing nearer, I’m both excited to discover what is to come and sad to be approaching the inevitable goodbye to Roxanne Fosch. I’ve found this book has answered many of the mysteries and holes from the previous books and provides a good ending to the Roxanne Fosch files.
I thoroughly enjoyed this last instalment to the Roxanne Fosch Files and I’m glad the books came to the end they did. Although I’m sad they’ve come to an end, Roxanne now feels like an old friend who’s journey I know I’ll cherish for a long time to come.
