East of Ecstasy (Book 4 Hearts of Anemoi) by: Laura Kaye
Annalise Fallston made peace with postponing her big-city dreams to care for her ill father, but lately she’s been filled with a restlessness not even her beloved painting dispels. Worse, the colors don’t speak to her as they always have, and all her efforts produce dark, foreboding images of a dangerous man and a terrifying future. Devlin Eston, black-souled son of the evil Anemoi Eurus, is the only one who can thwart his father’s plan to overthrow the Supreme God of Wind and Storms. But first, Dev must master the unstable powers he’s been given. Distrusted and shunned by his own divine family, he never expected to find kindness and passion in the arms of a mortal. But Devlin’s love puts Annalise in the path of a catastrophic storm, and in the final Armageddon showdown between the Anemoi and Eurus, sacrifices will be made, hearts broken, and lives changed forever…or lost.
4.5 out of 5 stars
This is the last book of Laura Kaye’s Hearts of Anemoi series and be warned that this book will make you go through a whirlwind of emotion.
I was not a major fan of Devlin at the beginning of this novel. I found him overly emo in the fact that he has a lot of issues from his childhood. I completely understood and was sympathetic at first but after a while I wanted him to stop hiding behind these feelings of self loathing. However, these feelings don’t last after Anna breaks through that barrier of crazy and I give that girl props!
This is the book where shit hits the fan in the final battle and nobody is left un-scared. I cried worse reading this book, laughed more reading this book, and was held captured more reading this book then I have in a long time. This attests to the amazing characters, plot and scenery that Laura Kaye paints for her readers. Grab a box of tissues and if you read this book in public be prepared for people to think your crazy from the maniacal laughter/sobbing/ and awws.
Like all of the books in this series everything follows through and it is a quick read. You will not be left wondering anything as all questions are answered and everything you learn is for a purpose. Laura Kaye- thank you for this amazing experience and know that this series is going to be one that I read again and again.
This review is solely my own opinion; I was unpaid for any of my words. I purchased this story for my own enjoyment. I got the image and description from Laura Kaye’s website which can be found by clicking the picture at the beginning of this review. Happy reading!
