Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor demons, not principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, shall be able to seperate us. Do you understand? Keep hold of me, Daisy. Keep hold of me, and don’t let go.”
What a wild ride.
Chain of Iron was an exciting second installment I the Last Hours series and it was soooooooo good.
We are back together with the Merry Thieves and our favorite couple as they go through their “fake marriage” to save Cordelia’s reputation after she lied for James. Except we all know this love is THE REAL THING! But that scene that included some ROPES! WHOOOOOOWEEEEEE. I read that three times.
CC definitely upped her romance and 🔥🔥🔥 in this one. Still tasteful but everything I wanted.
Every moment with James and Daisy was my absolute favorite. I think I could have read about them reading and kissing in the drawing room for 600 pages.
All of the characters in this story are very strong. Matthew, Lucie, Jesse, Grace, Kit, Thomas, Alastair and Anna… I want to be all their friends and I want them all to find an HEA.
Read if you like:
-being a sleuth and catching the killer
-Jane Austen’s era of writing with angels and demons (put them in fancy dresses but make it spicy… but noooooot Bridgerton level😂)
-kids that are way too smart for their own good
-multiple love interests and couples in one story
-want to join the Jamie Herondale fan club (im accepting new member)
-🏳️🌈 and love interests
-beautifully written diverse characters
What I docked a star:
-PERSONAL OPINION…. I am oooooooover love triangles. I think this book could have been way more powerful and 100 pages shorter without forcing that to happen. Its been done by CC and I loved it in TID but I just can’t… again.
I’m hoping that this is an opening to help Matthew heal and not anything else because I love him and want him to be happy so badly, just not messing with my OTP. It feels redundant at this point.
– I smidge predictable… and I am the world’s worst detective
