This book is part of a series and needs to be read in sequence.
This book is the absolute jewel in the Cassie Tam series. So convoluted, yet conversely so straight forward, we finally find why things are the way they are in New Hopeland. For Cassie Tam fans, this finale is everything you could wish for. Gone are the few rambling, confusing, (albeit not off-putting) descriptions from previous books. This story cuts to the chase…and what a chase it is!
Our friend Cassie is back at it, rubbing elbows this time with her on-again, off-again nemesis, Angel, as well as the King’s Guard and all they encompass. Tam’s love story with Lori takes a satisfying turn here, and yes, Bert, too, is never far from the action. All our favorites back for Doyle’s action-packed itinerary.
A wholly satisfying blade-cut of details in Half Light finally reveals the underbelly of New Hopeland, and the seamier side of each and every faction therein, proving a mastery of storytelling which allows this series-ender to break free and soar. Technicalities abound, lending depth to a world we’ve come to know and love.
Kudo’s to Matt Doyle for a magnificent job, and envy toward all those who have yet to begin the Cassie Tam journey!
