I couldn’t give this book a 4 star (like the other books in the series) because I preferred by far the interactions between Gem and Kynan then those of Shade and Runa. Given that the main storyline revolves around the relationship between Shade and Runa, it made the reading experience pretty boring. I couldn’t appreciate the character of Runa as much as Tayla or Gem. Tayla had more punch and you got to love Gem. I also expected Shade to be different. I thought I would like him the most out of the 3 brothers but turns out he was quite dull. I didn’t really feel the love connection between those two which Gem and Kynan had. That’s why I found Kynan and Gem’s relationship development more interesting to follow and I caught myself hoping they would have their own novel.
All in all the worldbuilding of the Demonica series is great and I absolutely have to know where that hospital, Underworld General is ;)
