This book was definitely an improvement from the first one, but it still left me wanting more. The spice was definitely there this time and Wrath is probably one of my favorite male love interests of all time, but god damn Emilia is still the most annoying character. Sometimes she's bearable and the next chapter I seriously consider DNF'ing the book because of how fucking stupid she is. However, I'm 2 books into a 3 book series so I'm curious to see how the final book plays out. 

Spoiler I'm reading a lot of reviews about how Chapter 17 gave them the "ick" and I *personally* didn't think it was the worst thing I've ever read. Yes, it was not completely necessary but I understood where the author was going with the scene. I understand how it can be triggering but it didn't hurt the story for me *personally* 

Also - saw Wrath being the Devil himself and had a feeling Vittoria was still alive. I mean she literally told Emilia in the first book she was doing shady shit, but I'm curious how it'll all play out in this final book.
