Secret McQueen, Book 7
Synopsis: The Secret’s out, and heads will roll.
Ever since her near-death experience at the hands of the villainous Dr. Kesteral, Secret McQueen hasn’t been the same. As in damaged almost beyond repair. But as usual, Secret has no time to lick her wounds.
Armed to the fangs, she and Desmond embark on a whirlwind quest for revenge that takes them to the sewers of Paris to put an end to Alexandre Peyton. Instead, it’s almost the end of them, and before she can stop him, Peyton rips the veil off her deepest secret.
The devil’s not through muddling up the details, either. An eye-opening confab with Sig in the Big Apple leaves her wondering if she’s ever been in control of her own life at all. Plus, a cryptic postcard sends her racing back to her Manitoba hometown, fearing for her grandmere.
With the Council holding the power of life and death over her head, Secret’s circle of friends is shrinking, while the pool of enemies looking for payback is widening like a pool of her own blood.
Warning: Contains the least romantic Paris getaway in history and an unstoppable hybrid with an impossible choice to make between two men who’ve been to hell and back for her.
Review: I really like this Sierra Dean’s series but it’s true that I’m coming to the end of the Secret McQueen series. Moreover, this end comes much faster than expected as I now have only one novel left (she finally announced recently that we will have a book 9). I’m still happy that there is a spin off series on Genie, because I would have been sad to leave this universe.
Secret has gone through hell in the previous volume and now has to deal with the consequences. However, this trauma is far from easy to put aside and Secret no longer knows how to act. I really found that the author perfectly showed us the repercussions on all these events, that despite all that Secret has endured, she also has her limits and she reached them this time! It must be said that everything was really terrible … I was really sick to see her endure these flashbacks, these nightmares or her difficulty to be touched. But now, she does not have time to think about her life and this time she will have to face all these enemies, whether Peyton, Mercy or the revelation of her secret … Yes, she will face all what she tried to avoid before … I confess that I really did not expect so much action! But that’s not all because Secret will finally make her choice among all the men of her life. And I admit that even if the choice was already made from the beginning, this decision is painful, especially when we see the reaction of the other parties. However, I must say that I did not really expect such an end, such a turnaround and I am very curious to read the last volume to know exactly what it is. One thing is certain, Secret will not have time to rest!
It was as always a great novel and I loved following Secret, while seeing the difficulty of her emotional state. Sierra Dean has once again offered us an action-packed novel that finalizes many things started at the beginning of the series. Do not hesitate to get started if it’s not done yet!
