Call is imprisoned after it was revealed in the previous book that he is Constantine, the Enemy of Death, reincarnated. Someone busts him out and he is unsure why someone would do that until he is taken to Master Joseph’s house and told he must revive his best friend Aaron or there will be fatal consequences.
I feel like the further this story goes the messier it becomes and there’s is one booklet and God knows what is going to happen there. These books are fun, easy reads but I just feel like the quality is beginning to lack and I’m a bit bored by it all but I’m still going to finish the series because I’ve got this far.
For a lot of this book, a whole lot of nothing happens. It’s mainly about Call’s inner struggle of being the reincarnation of the Enemy of Death and whether that means he isn’t Call and is a bad guy. And whilst this was definitely interesting and had some discussing of good vs. evil, it couldn’t been condensed and put all together with the final book.
Now I’ve seen a lot of comparisons to HP with this book and I get it but I feel like it’s still pretty different. But this book did something similar to HP and that was having a last-minute panic romance between 2 main characters. Very comparable to Harry and Ginny in book 6 where it felt like JKR just threw them together, that’s how I felt about the romance in this book.
I’m really hoping that because this book was a bit meh that the final book really blows it out of the park. I honestly just continued reading it to finish it because I was bored.
