Book 3: Demon’s Surrender
As with Demon’s Covenant I was really wary about the POV changed that occurs with Demon’s Surrender perhaps even more so this time since I had liked Mae going into Covenant and didn’t really know what I thought of Sin prior to Surrender. I shouldn’t have worried though as Brennan has once again provided me with an amazing story that I hated to have end. While I didn’t like being in Sin’s head as much as Mae’s or Nick’s I did still like seeing the story from her perspective. I enjoyed learning more about her and what makes her tick and this book changed my opinion of her entirely. I think that parts of her story were a little predictable but I don’t really mind that. I am glad that certain events happened because sometimes you really just need for things to work out.
As with the previous two books there is lots of action and humor packed into this story. The events pick up shortly after Covenant ends and all the story lines from the previous books are wrapped up nicely. What’s nice though is there there is still enough left for the reader to imagine and hope that there might be more set in this world. But at the same time it all ends so perfectly that even if that never happens (which probably won’t) then the reader is left satisfied with how things ended up. Nick and Jamie’s scenes also continue to be my favorite and my one complaint is that there weren’t enough of them in this book. Though I probably wouldn’t be satisfied if Brennan wrote an entire book of just Jamie and Nick interacting so I’m probably not a good judge of just how much they were in the book.
Of the three books in the series, Demon’s Surrender isn’t my favorite (that belongs to Demon’s Covenant) but I still enjoyed it and the series wouldn’t be the same without this installment. This book also fully cemented my love for Sarah Rees Brennan’s writing and I can’t wait until the next thing she comes up with. If you haven’t checked out her books yet then what are you waiting for? They are filled with smart, witty writing, believable characters that you fall in love with and some really amazing story ARCs. I’m a total fan girl for life and I can’t believe I waited so long to read her stuff. Although I am glad at the same time I was able to devour all books in the series at once. That waiting between books can be such a killer!
