5 STARS – ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
Bravo Myra Danvers, Lavish Destruction was everything and then some more.
The first two books of The Last Tritan series have had me excitedly on the edge of my seat, whilst also howling in frustration, snarling at shadows and bitter at all the injustices that were served up. Lavish Destruction elicited all those familiar emotions but also, eventually, it gave me a tiny sliver of hope to temper the agony.
The author writes with a voice that holds you spellbound. Every single scene and conversation holds a purpose, nothing is as throw away as it may first appear. The sheer brilliance of how she weaves together so many different strands and story elements is astounding. What starts as seemingly random splashes of colour and texture, gradually form into a breathtaking tapestry that warps your mind with it’s beauty and sheer stunning brilliance.
Mila is mired in a twisted web of deceit, half truths and intricate plots. An unwilling pawn in the power struggles of others, she still allows her passions to rule her and still stumbles from one catastrophe to another. In some heroines I might find this an annoying trait, but there is just something so strong and determined, yet fragile and vulnerable, about her that I can’t help but adore Mila.
Asher continues to be somewhat of an arrogant ass, though he clearly cares for Mila, is it as a person or as a possession? Is he more interested in her power than in her? I’m not sure if he doesn’t know that for himself, he is wilfully blind to the truth or he just has his head shoved up his, well I’m sure you can guess where I mean. We do find that Asher’s position within the Elite is not as assured as first impressions gave. Add in the fact that evil forces are afoot, forces that have their own plans for Mila and Asher and you will understand the title of this book.
This is not a stand alone book, you need to have read both Ravenous Innocence and Insatiable Corruption prior to diving into the glorious depths of this tome. However all three books are absolutely amazing and will have you caught in a world of pain, mystery, despair, hope and magic. This is an amazing series and a definite must read.
“It’s the fight, isn’t it? The struggle. The idea that I’ll pin you down and take what I want…” He smiled, slow and dangerous. Watching me struggle to deny him. Watching me fail…
Enslaved to a man I hate, I’m bound.
All that I was is gone. Taken. Stripped away, only to feed the beast who dares to call himself my equal, while having the gall to leave me helpless to his whims. Who offers protection in place of my Goddess-given power.
Protection I didn’t need before him.
Captain Asher Rawlings is a man apart. Relentless. Driven to take and possess.
And he’s winning.
