(Ramblings of a #TeamGerik fanatic)  CONTAINS SPOILERS

This isn’t a regular review. This is a book fan arguing her point of view on how the series should go after this book and pointing out interesting facts and questions. It's like Twilight (love triangle, supernatural), Percy Jackson (Greek Gods and legends), and Harry Potter (magic, mythology, multiple hidden meanings) grew up, had an orgy and spawned this series.

I have nothing against Xan, but Gerik is the shiznit. Obviously both Gerik and Xan are hot as fek and totally amazing. Both are wonderful. But Gerik is made for her and magic. Any male lead in any book can connect the way that Xan can with her, but what makes this so special is how Gerik can connect with her. I think that everyone is just giving him too bad of a rep for what he is going through. Emilian was helped through everything by his people. Gerik was orphaned and the leaders didn't help him make the connection with Trinity. So he was left hanging with his full-fledged feelings for her all his life without the actual connection. He obviously loved her very much or he would have just raped her to make the connection instead of waiting for her. He never forced her into anything. By the time Trieme was 22 and Emilian was 29, the same ages as Trinity and Gerik currently, they were married and she was pregnant. I think, in the whole cosmos connection of everything, that is the stage that Trinity and Gerik are suppose to be in now so as his biological magical manly clock is freaking the fuck out and needing to make that happen. So instead of just raping Trinity to make it happen, he is trying to get rid of some of that pressure with Onyx. He does not enjoy it. It says in the book he shut his eyes and pretended it wasn't her, and that after it didn't feel better. Also, I don't think it's just him whoring around or can it be compared to a regular guy because he wants Trinity so bad just wanting to touch her and not allowing himself causes a hurricane. He's just trying to give her time to accept him. He has loved her his whole life, but has just been waiting for her the same as Emilian with Trieme except he didn't get to connect with her at her birth. I think since they are parts of the same soul, they will have to be together because their whole soul being torn apart is what caused this apocalypse to being with. So I'd have to say it's threesome or Gerik, end of.

Red string of fate

I also want to talk about all the Greek Gods and stories. The first mermaid story has some similarities to the first Vampire/Zombie/Whatever those scary f'ers are. The Soul Mate really has a Hades & Persephone feel to it. This is a something I found on the Internet about P "queen of the underworld. Homer describes her as the formidable, venerable majestic queen of the underworld, who carries into effect the curses of men upon the souls of the dead. Persephone was abducted by Hades, the god-king of the underworld. The myth of her abduction represents her function as the personification of vegetation which shoots forth in spring and withdraws into the earth after harvest; hence she is also associated with spring and with the seeds of the fruits of the fields." Is there a P and Trin connection? The most important Greek myth I wanted to discuss was the Fates, the 3 sisters. Somehow I know this has got to be important. This is something I found on the Internet about them "The Fates have the subtle but awesome power of deciding a man's destiny. They assign a man to good or evil. Their most obvious choice is choosing how long a man lives. There are three Fates. Clotho, the spinner, who spins the thread of life. Lachesis, the measurer, who choses the lot in life one will have and measures off how long it is to be. Atropos, she who cannot be turned, who at death with her shears cuts the thread of life. The Fates are old and predate the gods. It is not entirely clear how far their power extends. It is possible that they determine the fate of the gods as well. In any case, not even the most powerful is willing to triffle with them." So they make a man good or evil... Teodora spins the thread of life. Idk what that means. Sits the backdrop of life in motion maybe? Trinity choses the lot and measures how long it's going to be. So she will decide what kind of life they lead and how long that kind of life exists, right? Tahyra cannot be turned. Hum.... Also she can end it all? At her death, she ends all life? There has to be a whole hell of a lot going on with this Fates thing. Lastly I wanted to talk about Trinity's name and the series name The Holy Trinity. (Yep u guessed more Internet quotes) Here's what I found on Trinity: "Trinity Theology In most Christian faiths, the union of three divine persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one God. Also called Trine. Also called Holy Trinity Blessed Trinity the union of three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, in one Godhead. The union of three persons in one Godhead, or the threefold personality of the one Divine Being.

I just did some rereading and needed to add a tidbit to my review. Like it's insanity not choosing this man.
"That's me inside you, Trinity. I've always been there and always will be."

I just blew through this in about 51/2 hours! All I can say is wow...I am a zombie lover, and thought it would be another run of the mill z story, so to find out they are like vamp cannibals (is there such a thing?) was a little weird, but that's cool. To say nothing of the soul mate triangle would be a travesty, and I normally don't like them much, but this one worked, for the most part. I understand where Trinity is coming from, feeling like all Gerik wanted her for was to feel "better" (for lack of a better term). This was my first book my Ms. Sheehan, but it will not be my last, I guarantee that! ( )
