Sadly this will likely be my last book in this series. The Author has pretty much used the main character as their whipping boy through most of the books and it has gotten worse and it has gotten old. Secondly the author wrote their character as smart, but she just seems to do dumber and dumber things as we go on. The current book is in my opinion the worst offender in the series. possible spoilers ahead...
The last book set up a situation where she finally managed to free her boyfriend from some horrible possession by one of the series big bads, she temporarily manages to take him somewhere where the villain is helpless and lying at her mercy and she just wanders off and never does anything to stop him from regaining his powers and starting his crap back up. That's just ridiculous, no one would do this and yet there it is. Then a little while later the main character stumbles into someone who is obviously going to be a villain and a potentially powerful one at that and what does she do? She takes them right to a super powerful artifact that this person desperately wants and basically hands it to her in a friends secret lair which of course results in all types of bad things happening to everyone involved. When I read it, it was so obvious and so dumb that if I had been reading a physical book I would have been tempted to throw it on the ground and stomp off. It was that maddening. I read books for enjoyments sake and the author has eroded that enjoyment the characters and story had and left me with frustration. Its no longer fun to see the main character constantly be stupid and get wrecked over and over and over so that's it for me.
I gave it three stars because it was decently well written and edited.
