Shadow Grail #3: Sacrifices
Review of Sacrifices, Shadow Grail #3, by Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill
The third book in the Shadow Grail series is a bit lackluster, especially compared to the standard typically set by these two authors.
The main theme seems to be everyone has betrayed us and no one can be trusted. I’d say this was a typical teen trope except that it includes the teens themselves!
At times it felt like I was reading the setup for a teen slasher movie. I was about ready to give up on this series (which pained me as Mercedes Lackey is one of my all-time favorite authors).
In the end, the book delivered just enough plot exposition and forward movement to convince me to give the next book in the series a chance. I hope book #4 lives up to the beginning of the series.
I give it 3 stars.
