Dusk has descended.
A time for heroes to face their fears.
Echo has lived the solitary life of a detective for too long, driven by her past to catch the criminals of Seahill and bring justice to those who’ve been wronged. Given her power to change into any creature she chooses, she’s pretty damn good at her job. But now her beloved city is in chaos. After escaping death at the hands of evil, she finds herself immersed in the world of magic and heroes.
That’s when he saved her.
Asher is an unexpected wrench in her life. He’s annoyingly charming, and despite never wanting to see him again, she needs his help. Alongside the Hero Society, they must find a familiar killer, unmask the true villain that’s been behind everything from the beginning, and try to survive the fear rising in the world.
Mankind wasn’t ready for them.
Will they continue to fight the shadows or succumb to the darkness?
Dusk is the third book in the Hero Society series by Jessica Florence. I really loved book one, Dawn, but I think this one is my new favorite!
Dusk opens with Echo witnessing her parents murder and her power to shift into whatever animal she wants kicks in. Now, she is a detective with the Seahill Police Department and she is determined to protect others from the tragedy that she suffered through while tracking her parent’s killer. Two things that she has not made up her mind about is whether or not the Hero Society is a society that can trusted and what that strange spark she feels when she touches Asher, a magic wielder, means. Echo is used to going through life on her own and has no idea what to think when she finds herself immersed in this sense of family she finds in the Hero Society and with a man who accepts every part of her.
I loved Echo and her strength to keep going when things don’t go her way. She is one of those characters with a tough exterior, but a gooey center. I admired her vulnerability and the leap of faith that she takes in this book. I also loved Asher and his ability to sense what Echo needed at any given moment. He was such a patient man who didn’t want to settle for anything less than a pure love that was made for him. Echo and Asher were exactly what each other needed and their journey was beautiful.
I recommend this book to those who love: soulmates, superheroes, magic, suspense, and quick reads.
Overall Rating: 4/5 Stars!
