Iniquity by Amy A. Bartol

I gasp as my body curls toward Brennus like a flower to the sun, for the pleasure of it. He holds me close to him. His nose grazes the length of my neck. He breathes me in. I feel the roar and rush of my heartbeat. I’m his toy; his energy streams into me. He winds the invisible key in my back and the euphoria ratchets and coils inside of me: tick...tick...tick...

Another wicked surge of energy flows from him into me. Pain. Pleasure. Bliss. My jaw unclenches as my lips part. I make a small, breathy sound as we dance. Brennus responds with something close to a growl. “Ye’re killing me, mo chroí,” he murmurs. His hand moves down my back infusing me with a golden glow of power. My wings punch violently from me, tearing a hole in my day dress. They spread wide, like a red stain beyond my pale skin. I’m dancing now for the thrill of it. I follow his lead.

As the song comes to an end, Brennus kisses my throat. He whispers in my ear, “When ye get back, come find me, mo chroí. I’ve healed wake up and banjax whoever banished ye here...”

This is the final instalment in The Premonition series. It picks up right where book four left off. Evie and Reed have all the odds against them now that they have turned their backs on Tau and his army of angels.

There is also a new (of old threat) that Evie has to deal with.

Evie has no idea what her mission on earth is or why she is there, with all her memories wiped she has to rely on her gut for guidance. However, one mistake from an old enemy makes all the rules change.

This was a total rollercoaster from start to finish. Every page I turned I was scared as I didn’t know if anyone would survive or who Evie would choose in the end. It was a fantastic end to The Premonition series and I was very sad to say goodbye to the characters.

If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would.

I am a graduate of Hillsdale College and live in Michigan with my husband and our two sons. My family is very supportive of my writing. They often bring me the take-out menu so that I can call and order them dinner. They listen patiently when I talk about my characters like they’re real. They rarely roll their eyes when I tell them I’ll only be a second while I finish writing a chapter…and then they take off their coats. They ask me how the story is going when I surface after living for hours in a world of my own making. They have learned to accept my "writing uniform" consisting of a slightly unflattering pink fleece jacket, t-shirt, and black yoga pants. And they smile at my nerdy bookishness whenever I try to explain urban fantasy to them. In short, they get me, so they are perfect and I am blessed.
