    It is with a heavy heart I am throwing Reckoning into my DNF pile As I received this book for review before a cover was published, I really was relying solely on the blurb to sell me this book And sold I was The Great Extinction, prophesied war, Supernaturals Yes, there were quite a few elements that lured me in I really expected to settle in to a epic read.Unfortunately, what I did not know, nor was it listed anywhere that this is part of a series Sometimes jumping into a series can work It is with a heavy heart I am throwing Reckoning into my DNF pile As I received this book for review before a cover was published, I really was relying solely on the blurb to sell me this book And sold I was The Great Extinction, prophesied war, Supernaturals Yes, there were quite a few elements that lured me in I really expected to settle in to a epic read.Unfortunately, what I did not know, nor was it listed anywhere that this is part of a series Sometimes jumping into a series can work out fine In this case, no I m going to take a wild guess and assume Reckoning actually starts where the previous book ended off at because the story immediately began with Juliet, Riley and Stone being in the Void I don t know how they got there, what it is, or why they were put there Better yet, who Juliet, Riley and Stone are There s very little back story to tell me what is going on Things do not get any less confusing from there I checked out the author s page to find out indeed this is a series I pushed through all my lack of knowledge of the who what whys and made it to about 60% If I managed to just focus on what was currently going on it was good, but with no understanding of humans, Guards, Supernaturals and everything else, I m just spinning my wheels in a world of lost confusion.Is it my fault I m not finishing the book Possibly I think if I had known this was a series I could have been a bitprepared, maybe read the blurb to the previous book or at least had chosen whether or not to jump in with both feet blindly At this point, I have no desire to go back and start from the beginning I highly recommend to anyone who plans to read this book to make sure to start with the previous title, Revenge Without it, you may be as lost as I was I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine.I am giving this book a neutral rating of 3 stars

    I will be making vague statements as to not spoil the story Reckoning picks up right where Revenge ends, and is told in dual point of view Just when their relationship was finally showing signs of trust they get tossed into the Void by Riley s half brother The Great Extinction has been prophesized, as well as Juliet saving both races Ide taking over though has changed her destiny The action that must be taken is something she cannot, will not do In Revenge, both Riley and Juliet were stron I will be making vague statements as to not spoil the story Reckoning picks up right where Revenge ends, and is told in dual point of view Just when their relationship was finally showing signs of trust they get tossed into the Void by Riley s half brother The Great Extinction has been prophesized, as well as Juliet saving both races Ide taking over though has changed her destiny The action that must be taken is something she cannot, will not do In Revenge, both Riley and Juliet were strong characters They were decision makers, individuals to look up to In Reckoning, I couldn t help but wonder what happen to them Did love really make them this weak Maybe it was that even though the story is told in dual points of view, we were seeing it in real time Or maybe it was that their relationship had hit the honeymoon stage, where all they have time for is each other Regardless for about half of the book, they both got on my nerves Half of the angst could have been avoided if only they had talked to each other Granted Juliet really couldn t tell Riley about her destiny He still could have avoided a lot of he had told her his plan.Internally, their dialogues were always about how much they love the other person Which would have been nice if peppered throughout the book instead of being the main portion of the book Umm a war is going on Speaking of the war, Ide is one sick dude We already knew he was messed up but seriously, after Riley witness the power of the Night of Grief, we had no clue Then again, the humans were just as sick What they were willing to do to win the war was heartbreaking Juliet is strong on the outside She gives off the perception of being calm, cool and collective Internally throughout much of the book she is beating herself up Riley, oh how I adored you and then wanted to punch you I mean, you ask her to trust you, to listen to you The reverse though is not given Reckoning was an enjoyable book, in the end all of your questions are answered Normally this would have been enough Revenge was a great book a hard one to follow Now I am kinda feeling off Kinda like when you go on a date and you want a steak but you get salad instead
