The tattooed demoness, Bone, doesn’t like anything except the magical weapons she makes. But she has hidden talents few know about. When I was brought to her near death, she used her Seraph song to manipulate flesh and bone to save me. But she wasn’t happy about it.
Now I must return the favor. Even though she refuses to take sides in the apocalypse, there’s one job she’s not willing to do for the demon prince Rook. If she doesn’t, her head will end up on a spike. Of course, there’s a good chance we’re all going to die anyway, but I will do anything to protect this fierce woman—and not just because she saved me.So now we’re both off to kill a demon—or three—and possibly save the world. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
The moment I laid eyes on the Hardest Fall, my fate was sealed. I was going to devour this book and never look back. Bone is a character from the first book Darkest Heart. All you really know is she’s always alone, creating weapons for either side. Because she didn’t choose a side, that was her thing, no one was going to tell her what to do and that's it. That of course, is until Xander practically lands in her lap aka table. There’s so much about this story that’s brilliant. It captivated me from the start. The raw, gritty details of the apocalypse. But even in that, way deep down there was the hope, love, and light that they all needed. I don’t want to go into too much detail about Bone. It’s a heartbreaking one that I think she should tell you herself. And Xander, oh boy, hello? This guy is a Demon Hunter that’s sexy as H*ll. This story practically had everything you would want. There’s that vulnerability that these two share. That tear down the walls that they’ve built. To protect themselves. I mean it is an apocalypse, who can you trust? I connected to both characters, and I laughed with them, I teared up as they spoke of their past and cheered as they fought the darkness that threatened to swallow them whole. The vision that Cross has for this series, I’m on for this ride. It’s a captivating series that will have entranced till the end. Overall, Five Boundless Stars.
