The Cities of Dead I still have to read the second book, but I am so excited about this one. The Cities of Dead the highly anticipated third book in Alys Arden s spellbinding The Casquette Girls series Old World witches collide with the French Quarter s strangest denizens, setting off events that could tear the fabric of the Natural and Supernatural worlds, and only the most elusive, mischievous Voodoo lwa hold the key to stopping itAs Adele struggles with her losses, Nicco s secrets draw her closer, but Isaac questions Nicco s motives and refuses to let go without a fight While the coven works to make the streets safe from the Ghost Drinkers, Nicco s family of vampires is ready to break the Saint Germain curse at all costs and settle a centuries old feud To save her loved ones and her cherished city, Adele must unearth New Orleans s best kept Voodoo secret and piece together fragments of history from sixteenth century Spain even if it means discovering secrets she never wanted to know If she fails, she may lose her magic forever This has to be one of the most intense love triangles EVER I don t even know who to root for in the romance department at this point, and that s only one of the complications in the grander scheme of things My head is still spinning, and I m so glad we are gettingof this fantastic story with book four Honestly, Adele and Isaac can make me feel so frustrated sometimes Fortunately, I absolutely love Nicco, Codi and D sir e and half love Gabriel, so I guess that makes up for all the things I don t particularly enjoy I feel as though my interest in this series has been waning with each book I just can t with the love triangle any because it s dumb I feel like Adele is stringing Isaac along until she can justify picking Nicco at the end Because, let s be honest, that s who she s wanted to pick from the start, and the only reason she went with Issac is because she thought Nicco betrayed her.Speaking of which, I suddenly have a theory that Nicco IS going to betray her That whole story about how he strung I feel as though my interest in this series has been waning with each book I just can t with the love triangle any because it s dumb I feel like Adele is stringing Isaac along until she can justify picking Nicco at the end Because, let s be honest, that s who she s wanted to pick from the start, and the only reason she went with Issac is because she thought Nicco betrayed her.Speaking of which, I suddenly have a theory that Nicco IS going to betray her That whole story about how he strung Seraphine along for DECADES so he could get close enough to kill her The way Gabe described his singular personality trait as PATIENT The fact that he s been obsessed with finding Leon and Adele could be his ticket I think he s playing the long con with her and waiting for Leon to show up or for Adele to lead him to his cousin.I don t want to believe it because I do genuinely like Nicco, but I just feel like that would be the greatest plot twist, that he was actually the worst of them all, that he was just using her to get to the comte.ANYWAYS I adore Isaac and I m kind of really angry with Adele for taking mac s memories of him away because that was selfish and unfair of her, knowing Isaac isn t close with his own dad, knowing how close he and Mac had gotten it was just awful because he lost them both and I think he didn t realize how important Mac was to him until he didn t have that parental figure looking out for him any I do like how Isaac inserts himself back into Mac s life and how they fall back into their friendship I just really love Mac being like a father to Isaac.And I get that Adele is angry with Isaac for killing her mother, but also, COME ON, the guy didn t even know her mother was a vampire If Adele had just told him, instead of keeping secrets like she always does, he never would have staked her Also, I just don t get the point of the mother any, because she was this big divisive force in Adele s life and then she was a vampire and Adele felt bad for hating her and now she s DEAD and there can be no reconciliation and that s just dumb.I loved Isaac, Dee, and Codi working together and how well Codi has fallen into the coven I really like him and needof him Also, I supposed Dee has a crush on him, but I was honestly kind of hoping for something to blossom for Isaac and Dee, just because they spend so much time together and if Adele and Isaac aren t endgame, then I want Isaac to still have someone in his life who really cares and I don t know that that person has ever really been Adele.I like the Daures and the Borges working together on the magical issues And just the magical community we now know about and are a part of I liked getting to learn the story of Callis coven and daaang Also just learning about the strongest magical families of the world ALSO, how did their being witches not come up in any of the memories of Nicco s human life in the previous book Because that was a bombshell I was not expecting This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here SPOILERS Oh Alys, you magical woman You ve again managed to rock my world with your writing THIS BOOK IS SO AMAZING She has a way of making you feel like you re right in NOLA with the characters THE ENDING HAS ME SHOOK I can t wait forI m team Nicco until the end I had this feeling the ENTIRE book that she would end up leaving Nicco in the dust, so the fact that she chose him in the end My heart almost couldn t take the suspense Honestly, I just think Isaac is so protective SPOILERS Oh Alys, you magical woman You ve again managed to rock my world

feeling the ENTIRE book that she would end up leaving Nicco in the dust, so the fact that she chose him in the end My heart almost couldn t take the suspense Honestly, I just think Isaac is so protective to the point of being possessive ESPECIALLY AFTER WHAT HE DID TO HER Ok ok So through most of the book, I was kind of like where is this going Most of the characters ok sometimes Adele and mostly Isaac REALLY annoyed me I also had no idea where the magic stuff was going in this book I was and still am confused by a lot of it quite frankly.The Isaac Adele Nicco love triangle was a HUGE part of this book and it is extremely frustrating because we re supposed to believe that Isaac and Adele are in love, but they really don t trust each other Also most of Ok ok So through most of the

really long game, so we don t really know if we can trust him either hide spoiler This is the first book in the series where I ve been a little wary of Nicco but I still prefer him over Isaac The last few chapters completely redeemed this book for me Adele has been feeling completely useless since the loss of her magic and feels that everyone sees her as weak Her final confrontations with Isaac pretty much showed that fairly clearly, view spoiler side note when she told him off I kind of cheered because that has been a LONG time coming hide spoiler Adele finally believing in herself at the end of the book was what got me excited for the next installment Despite everything that happened in this book, I felt that she has grown a lot as a character The last lines of the book had me feeling empowered and I felt that Adele could really do anything so I hope that energy carries into the final installment as frustrated as I get with Adelethis was all kinds of crazy in the very best way. 5 5 StarsAdele has been through so freaking much despite just being a teenager We start out the book seeing just how much the events of The Romeo Catchers broke her She s separated herself from her coven and her boyfriend And she begins to get cozy with my favorite character, Nicco swoons Isaac and Dee just want Adele back in the coven and they just want her present, but since Adele has isolated

don t know what it is but Alys Arden weaves this story in a way that I absolutely cannot stop reading Witches, vampires, shapeshifters, love triangles, and danger OH MY I would have given it one star, but since some of the side characters and the vamps are the best parts of the book, it warrants an extra star for that alone I had waited long for this book and was looking forward to it, but having to read half of the book from the perspective of a mary sue, and I don t mean Adele, was just a pain to get through.
