Week 36 Review: Daughter of Dusk

From Goodreads:
After learning the truth about her bloodlines, Kyra can't help but feel like a monster.

Though she's formed a tentative alliance with the Palace, Kyra must keep her identity a secret or risk being hunted like the rest of her Demon Rider kin. Tristam and the imprisoned assassin James are among the few who know about her heritage, but when Tristam reveals a heartbreaking secret of his own, Kyra's not sure she can trust him. And with James's fate in the hands of the palace, Kyra fears that he will give her away to save himself.

As tensions rise within Forge's Council, and vicious Demon Rider attacks continue in surrounding villages, Kyra knows she must do something to save her city. But she walks a dangerous line between opposing armies: will she be able to use her link to the Demon Riders for good, or will her Makvani blood prove to be deadly?

In this spellbinding sequel to Midnight Thief, Kyra and Tristam face their biggest battle yet as they grapple with changing allegiances, shocking deceit, and vengeful opponents. 

My Review:
I loved reading this book! I loved the first book, and I knew that I'd enjoy this book a lot! And this book didn't disappoint, it was so awesome and amazing and just darned wonderful! This book is where Kyra takes charge, and reading that was epic!

There's a conversation about power in this book, throughout it, as Kyra has learned about some of the power that she has in the previous book, and gained in the previous book, she uses in this one. And there's some fine lines to walk regarding power in this book!

There was only a hint of romance in this book, because while she and Tristam kissed in the last book, and there's the feelings there, things are complicated by their social standings and situations. Which adds in something of a love triangle, but it had the right level of time taken for it!

I read somewhere, that this is the last book in Kyra's story-but that we might be getting her parent's story. Which would be pretty awesome, because from what we know about them from these two books, their story is pretty interesting! I want to know it!

Yeah, really fantastic book, so enjoyable, and just a great book to end a duology with!
