MY REVIEW – โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

Finally, one of my most anticipated reads for the first half of 2022 hit my kindle today at 6:40 AM, and I am so proud to admit that I had gobbled up the book by 10 AM, flat. The Annihilator is the final (or is it) book in the Dark Verse series by RuNyx. It follows the very much-awaited story of the Shadowman and hisย flamma. Like all the other books by the author, this one had me in a chokehold right from the beginning.

The Annihilator left me annihilated. (Couldn’t resist, haha)

It took me a long while to formulate words that would do justice to the kind of book this was. It was darker than any of its predecessors, and the psychotic approach the author tried out was pretty unique, if I am being honest. I loved how the author decided she wanted to try something new and went right ahead. It was exciting to see the pieces fall together, and I am definitely anticipating what is next in store for all the characters from this series.

I adored the depiction of the character of the Shadowman. He was psychotic, morally black, and the most unhinged hero I’ve ever read. I know he wasn’t written to be liked or loved but nevertheless, his character is one I won’t be forgetting about anytime soon. On the other hand, Luna was a precious little soul whom you’d want to protect right from the beginning. The triggers were heavy in this book, and the reader’s discretion is advised.

The hype around this book was crazy, and so of course, I had to be among the top 2% who finished this book AND posted the review on the very first day. The writing style and diction was par perfection, the plot was also enthralling enough to make me read the book in a single sitting and I just couldn’t stop once I started reading.

Now, I cannot wait to see what the author has in store for the characters. I hope the finale will leave me crying and writhing on the floor in agony and staring into the abyss for two days.
