MIDNIGHT DYNASTY BOOK 3, ACT 3 - The House of Crimson & Clover by SARAH M. CRADIT

Midnight Dynasty, Act III: Omega (The House of Crimson & Clover #3, Act III)Midnight Dynasty, Act III: Omega by Sarah M. Cradit
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Midnight Dynasty is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

OMG!! Whoa!! Wow! What on earth just happened? Alright, here we are on Act 3 and I am just now having that AHA! moment. Now it's all starting to come together and while I thought I knew where this all might be headed I never guessed this was the path that would finally give the Deschanel's another theory to work with and now they appear to be mulling over the possibilities. But before those seeds can be planted in their minds, there are several mind blowing occurrences that will leave you feeling shocked and numb. The ultimate sacrifice will be made for love and family, but the outcome is still up in the air.
As the third part of the Midnight Dynasty serial begins, Tristan is going over old ancestral journals his mother left him in hope that in them he will find something she failed to see that would help stop the family curse. But, Tristan can find nothing but frustration and the curse continues to reek havoc on the Deschanel family at an alarming rate.
This installment picks up the thread of Amelia and Oz and Adrienne, and Alain and Katja and finally with Markus hitting upon something that could give this family a reprieve from their long suffering “curse” and at long last perhaps the answer to the question of “Why?” and “What can be done to end it once and for all.?”
Despite the kicks to the gut I received, and at one point the necessity of putting the book down for a little while, so I could gather my thoughts, I did feel that of all the chapters thus far in the Midnight Dynasty series, this one has the most uplifting ending, daring even to use the word “hope”. So, while I understand the curse may not be over just yet, there may be a way to figure out how to break it and I will even go out on a limb and say that perhaps this part of the series will merge seamlessly back into the stories of Ana and Finn and that part of the family. Either way, I plan to have front row seat!! This one is 5 stars.

Sarah is the author of the Paranormal Southern Gothic series, The House of Crimson & Clover, born of her combined passion for New Orleans, and the mysterious complexity of human nature. Her work has been described as rich, emotive, and highly dimensional.

An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying obscure subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf's personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She's a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Oregon, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.
