5 Hearts

A Castle of Sand  #3 By Bella Forrest



What Sofia has with Derek feels like a sandcastle; temporary and something that the waves of life and time will soon ruin…

Since the return of Gregor Novak, the island has turned several shades darker. His hatred toward Sofia and thirst for fresh blood lead to a brutal war igniting between father and son. 

Meanwhile, the hunters are gaining formidable strength and resources by the day; they know that the safety of The Shade hangs entirely on its ability to remain hidden from them. 

And a sinister secret lies in wait for Sofia within the bowels of an Egyptian desert… a secret that threatens to crush her sandcastle much sooner than she could have expected.


Out Beautiful Sand Castle Before

And our Castle After. Doesn’t that suck?

Personal Thoughts with Spoilers 

Holy crap, why do we keep having prominent people die. I mean come on, there is going to be a point, where all our major supporting characters are going to be dead. There is only one person I am glad DIES! LUCAS! Peace out, so long, thank goodness! I was so glad when he finally was killed. Some of the other characters not so much. I will not name them, because it kind of sucks. 

Also, we are still with the multiple POV’s. There was, Derek, Sophia, Ben, Lucas, and Claudia. I mean how many people can we have tell us what is going on. I get that it is important to know what is going on in all the different areas of the story, but seriously. That is a personal pet-peeve. I obliviously am getting over it, because I haven’t chunked the book yet. 

This book was better because we see Derek and Sophia grow through their differences. They balance one another. She is naive and forgiving of everyone, and Derek is NOT. 


The ending had me freak’n out.
I was like, “what?!” “No!” “Crap!” “B*tch”
​”No don’t do that”
and more things.
I am excited to read number 4.
Will keep you all up to date.
