Blood Solstice by Samantha Young

(The Tale of Lunarmorte, Book #3)
by Samantha Young

Genre: Paranormal Romance | Young-Adult

In the final installment of the Tale of Lunarmorte, Caia is caught between the most powerful beings in her world desperate to use her for their own means. Struggling to find her purpose, Caia's time runs out when tragedy strikes close to home. Now she must decide if she will join the extremists she was trying to destroy... or bring them all down on her own terms...
The last we know of Caia is that she has suddenly disappeared from the Errante pack's territory after discovering some shocking secrets and narrowly escaping the Daylight coven headquarters in Paris.  Now the hunt is on to find out her whereabouts while unearthing who exactly can be trusted within the covens and keeping as many of the pack members alive in a war that has gotten a little too close to home. Yet, Caia's keeper is an even bigger surprise, especially when they have been a part of the supernatural battle since the very beginning.  
Book #3 in the series had a lot more action and bloody warfare throughout. Since, the war spread dramatically and only a few people remained in power, a select group of supernaturals stepped up as leader/s to stay under the radar in hopes of bringing down the "enemy."  Unfortunately, there were quite a few tragic deaths, but just as many emotional revelations that balanced out the tone of the story.  Expect some great character development as trough decisions were finally made in regards to battle strategies and where loyalties lie, but overall a satisfying conclusion to The Tale of Lunarmorte trilogy.
Likes: The historical flashbacks that predated the war were fascinating and really eye-opening.

Dislikes: There was almost too much drama around Lucien and Caia's relationship struggles,  (mainly dishonesty and mistrust) that in the end, their dysfunctional bond just put a damper on the whole romantic part the story.

Chapter One/Paragraph One: "He hunkered down on to his haunches so they were face to face.  His smile disappeared as he winced. "I'm sorry I hit you so hard.  I wasn't sure how much strength I would need to put into it to knock you out.'re pretty fragile for a lykan."
