Remus is still reeling from the unexpected betrayal of his best friend when he learns that there is more to Arthur than he or the rest of the pack ever imagined. As the hunter’s moon approaches, Remus must come to a decision that will change the Kingdom of Night forever. While his story reaches its resolution within this trilogy, Arthur’s journey is just beginning. Their stories intertwine in a tale that will unite brothers, kingdoms and destinies…if it doesn’t divide them first.
Equilibrium is the third book in the Kingdom of Night series and after reading the first two books almost back to back I have been pulling my hair out waiting for the conclusion to what can only be described as an epic story – the three books come in at over 1200 pages in total.
I hovered constantly between 4 and 5 stars the entire time I was reading Equilibrium so I’m going with a 4.5 star rating but I would average the whole series out at 5 stars easily. It will definitely be a series I come back to and re-read. There are many twists and turns, there is the battle between perceived good and evil, there are werewolves, vampires and hunters. There are two brothers who fall in love with the same man – a man who turns out to be a hybrid and who it seems is destined to save the world. There is a hunter who is inherently good and who clings to his humanity whilst dealing with a rotten family and deranged cousin.
You need to read these books in order for the story to make any sense – so begin with Pendulum and follow that with Liminality (both of which I have reviewed on Prism) before you tackle Equilibrium which is in affect the closure of one story and the beginning of another. Whilst this story follows the complicated relationship between Remus, Victor and Sebastian and gave the ending I was hoping for it also follows Arthur’s story and his fight against The Family – and it’s not pretty! He clings to everything he is but it seems his path is set and my understanding is the series will continue with Arthur’s story although he is featured heavily in this book.
The author does not disappoint and once again the storyline is not obvious and doesn’t always take you where you expect. There wasn’t too much romance in this one –it’s definitely more about everyone’s survival but the ending was satisfying and felt right after everything they have all gone through. My last thought – poor Ulric
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
