Supernatural halfling Jane True is not happy. She's been packed off to England to fight a war when she's much rather be getting busy with her boyfriend Anyan. Unfortunately, Jane's enemies have been stirring up some major trouble and attracting a lot of attention - making it rather tricky for Jane and Anyan to get any alone time.
Catapulted into the role of Most Unlikely Hero Ever, Jane must lead the supernatural races in a desperate battle to combat an ancient evil. But she'll also have to fight her own insecurities, as well as the doubts of those who don't think she can live up to her new role as Champion - the most powerful supernatural leader of all…
Wow I did not expect an ending like that. It's going to drive me crazy until I can get my hands on the last book.
As usual, I loved this book. I love everything about the Jane True series - the characters, the story lines, the writing and most of all the ability Nicole has to inject humour into any situation.
What was different about this one was Jane herself. She has so many burdens to bear and she really took it like a champ. I adore books/series where there is clear development in the characters in some way or another. Jane, since the beginning of the series, has gone from not knowing anything about supernatural creatures apart from being the stuff of fairytales, to realising she is one, to being part of a huge war that could change everything as she knows it. She's slowly coming into her own whilst still being true to who she was at the start.
The plot was also great. There was an abundance of suspense with the idea that everything is at stake no matter who the character. Jane's usual enemies played a huge part with the added bonus of demons coming into play and the prospect of world annihilation.
Honestly, I kind of regret reading this without having the last book already on the shelf.
My rating: 10/10
