Book Review - Ties That Bind by Pippa DaCosta

Ties That Bind (The Veil, #5)

This final installment in the Veil series is action packed, and takes us on a journey through Boston and the netherworld, where Muse faces one of the most challenging battles in the series. As a half-demon, her life has been most unconventional. And now things are really starting to heat up! Still discovering her true nature, and where she fits in between worlds, Muse is reunited with the beloved (yet formidable) half-demon, Stefan. And we finally discover the great mystery behind the Prince of Greed, Akil -- many surprises in store!

"'I am the same man you loved to hate.' He stood still, like the demon he was."
I was thoroughly impressed with the way the story came together. It was bittersweet, no stone was left unturned, and it felt like the entire series led up to this point. Where some series fall short in the conclusion, Ties That Bind was refreshingly complete. And although it was sad to see the series end, it felt like it couldn't go any other way. I laughed, I cried, and I read all through the night.

So, does Muse finally achieve the freedom that has eluded her her entire life? All I can say is there are heart wrenching moments, plenty of surprises, and some sighs of relief... some. And after I finished reading, I thought about all the moments in earlier installments that suddenly made perfect sense.
"Forget your emotions. I think you'll find it liberating."
Urban fantasy fans will love this exciting and original tale. The high quality writing, well paced plot, and fully developed characters combine to make each story in this series spellbinding and engaging. A must read!
