Review of “Forevermore” (Darkest London #7) by Kristen Callihan

Callihan, Kristen. Forevermore. New York: Forever, 2016.

Mass Market Paperback | $7.99 USD | ISBN-13: 978-1455581702 | 318 pages | Victorian Romance/Paranormal Romace

4.5 stars

Forevermore concludes the Darkest London series on a high note. I admit I was rather worried about how Callihan would conclude the series, given how massive the world had become, but the overall arc of the series left me feeling satisfied.

I was surprised at how well having supporting players Augustus and Lena as a secondary hero and heroine worked. They did steal the show a bit from Sin and Layla, but I really enjoyed their storyline and how these characters working behind the scenes in the prior books finally got the spotlight somewhat.

I really like the dynamic that Sin and Layla have, given their past. I feel like some of the other couples have pasts together that have a lot of negative connotations, so it was nice to have a good balance of internal struggles that test each of them with a more loving and believable buildup of the romance between them.

I was generally satisfied with this final entry in the series and am frantically looking for something that can compare. And I will once again recommend pretty much everyone read this series, because even at its less interesting moments, it’s still a great, fast-paced series with quite a bit of character depth.

  1. I’ve read a few of the books in this series (Winterblaze I think? Plus definitely Shadowdance), but not in order or anything. Worth going back to tackle the whole thing in order, or is it a series that I can read random entries and still get what’s going on?

    1. I think it’s worth reading in order, since there are some over-arching plotlines. It does result in some of the books feeling a little more lackluster than others. But I think it’s one of those where you really do get a fuller picture by reading in order. But I may not be the best person to ask, since if I can, I usually am fanatical about reading in order, but I know not everyone is, and I think opinions do differ. If reading out of order works for you, then who am I to know you for it?
