Gathering Darkness is yet another amazing book by Morgan Rhodes. You never know where this series is going to take you but you just know it’s going to be a good one. Starting off from where the last book left off, we are thrust back into the world and problems within Mystica. From page one I was hooked and couldn’t wait to dive back into the lives of some of my favorite characters.
My all-time favorite character in this series is Magnus and I loved being able to visit his POV again and learn more about him. He may be a huge jerk sometimes, but he has a vulnerable side that we get to see more of. We also got to see more of Cleo and how much stronger she has become. I love how cunning and sly she is. She is much stronger than anyone gives her credit for and I love seeing how unexpected it is for everyone. I also loved the new characters that Rhodes introduced into the book. I couldn’t wait to see their intentions and how they would help to move the plot of the story along.
This book was filled with so many plot twists after plot twists and so much deception. I loved it because I didn’t know what was going to happen next which just kept me so engaged! Plus, the last couple of chapters were just insane. So much happened and I can’t wait to see where all of this will lead to in Frozen Tides.
It totally wasn’t expected that no one is going to be untouched by the events of the last two books at all. Yet in this book, you see some characters take some big risks, actions, that you would never expect. I mean Cleo and Magnus, plus Jonas all have major decisions to make in their lives. Even Lucia seems to take more control of her life.
You really can’t stand the Blood King. Everyone is plotting he says to find the Kindred. He wants to be the first one to find them not realizing that by doing that, you can make things a lot worse. Magnus fears what will happen if his father succeeds. His father shouldn’t have more power than he already does because of Lucia’s powers.
Lucia really grows a lot in this book. She is aware that her powers are growing. Plus you get to see her fall in love for the first time. This can never be good when your father is the King of Blood or maniacal like hers is. The Watchers decide to take some risky business when it comes to her. One becomes her tutor at first. Yet he has developed a consuming passion for Lucia. I really found that this was one of the more interesting aspects of the book. The relationship between the former watcher and Lucia was so fast, unexpected, and so well done. Plus the twists and turns were not what anyone including myself thought was going to happen.
Also you never thought that Cleo and Jonas would be working together. She gets a lot more clever and trickier in this book. I like how she gives Jonas information and he uses that information to get one of the crystals that they need to find the Kindred. The Kindred also might not want to be found.
So many great unexpected twists to this book. I also found that Magnus tries to be something that he isn’t and is finding himself wanting to get rid of his father more and more. Ashur and Amara are not likable to me at least as a reader, because each of them has their own agenda. Nothing is off limits to these two. I really did enjoy this book a lot and can’t wait to see what happens next especially after the cliffhanger in this book.
Rating: 4.5 Hearts
Magnus is easily the most interesting character for me. I never really know what he’s going to be. The relationship between him and Cleo is interesting and as a reader you never really know what direction their relationship is going to take. One minute they are at each other’s throats and not trusting each other, the next they are daring to hope that there is good in the other.
Both Cleo and Magnus are flawed and ‘damaged’ with a lot to forgive in both each other and themselves. I am glad this series has more books planned because I don’t think the damage can be repaired in just a couple of quick books. I love that the author is giving the reader time for the characters to earn their forgiveness.
I still feel like there is a little something wanting in these books though and it’s taken me a while to pin point what it is exactly. While Cleo has evolved and changed and Magnus is exceptionally complex, I think that Jonas’s character needs more depth. I just haven’t connected with him at all and find him a little ‘flat’ to be leading a rebellion. I was hoping he would be more cocky and charismatic but so far I haven’t really felt that way about him so I think that’s what’s missing for me.
So far this series has been exciting. I love how Rhodes handles controversial issues like pre-marital sex among teenagers, teen drinking, cursing, and violence in her books. As I have said before, they are all so well done and realistic….things not thrown in for shock value but rather things that make the world more realistic. In so many YA books there seems to be this unspoken code about leaving these things out or at the very least keeping it to a minimum and I love that she isn’t afraid to break with tradition.
