A common theme in all four books of this series is the secrets that Violet keeps. But it isn’t really until this book that she realizes that she is keeping too many of them, and that her best friend in the whole world – Chelsea – is starting to get annoyed with them. Violet realizes it and doesn’t know what to do about it on top of everything else.
It’s been a few months since Violet’s kidnapping and she’s trying to deal with living with her own imprint. Her friends are worried about her, but she doesn’t know how to be around them with this imprint. She’s taking more of the sleeping pills to dull the echo. But it isn’t until her mother cleans out the attic and finds a box of her grandmother’s old stuff that Violet finds a way to deal with the imprint and that there is something going on with her team. It turns out that the only time the echo/imprint goes away is when the heart of the victim is taken out of the body. Rafe – because he still likes Violet – digs up Caine and removes his heart so Violet can be at peace. And then there’s the picture of the team her grandmother was on – The Circle of Seven – that includes Dr. Lee, Rafe’s mom, and Krystal’s mom too.
In the other three books, I really liked the interlude chapters that dealt with the killer POVs for that book. In this book, I really didn’t like it. The killer this time around has major, major issues with family and drugs. It kind of made me sick. And the prologue! That was just such a mean twist.
Final Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. This book was still really good, but I still didn’t like the killer this time around. Also there were a lot of unanswered questions for a final book of a series. What exactly happened to the Circle of Seven? Who is in control of Violet’s current team? And even though Violet ‘chose’ Jay, what about Rafe?
