Review – Last Chance World

Last Chance World book cover


Last Chance World


Immortals of Talonswood #4


Alex Lidell


Reverse Harem


Stranded. Hunted. Tempted.
When Jake and I jumped into Talon, I intended to come right back. That was before I learned what King Bryant does to humans he kidnaps here—and that to stop him, I must become prey myself.
Now Cassis and I must go undercover as human slaves into the mines. Except something about the vampire is different here in Talon. He’s darker, more violent… more bloodthirsty. And he wants nothing to do with me. Not even when we’re trapped in the same underground cell, not even when the heat between us spirals out of control, making me hungry for things I never even imagined.
Yet what Cassis or I want might not matter. We aren’t alone in our hunt. Bryant has opened another portal to a world called Lunos and we may run out of time before learning whether it’s friends or foes who are coming through.


4stars rating

Ah, how bittersweet… I’ve been looking forward to reading this book, but at the same time it would mean that the series is complete and well… booo!


This book starts immediately where the last one left off and we follow Sam and Jake through the portal into Talon.
A very rich and diverse environment, always with enough details to know where our cast is at and just enjoy the story.

Character development:

This one was aaaaaaaaaaaallll about Sam and Cassis and oh man did he put up a fight, which wasn’t easy as Talon’s magic enhanced the stirrings of the mating bond. Stubborn bastard!
I do like that the author spent quite an amount on his inner demons so that we as readers would know exactly why he did what he did (even if we don’t agree with it).
Sam, on the other hand, gets hot and cold signals which leave her uncertain of anything but the reason she is there and their mission: free the slaves. But Talon’s magic and Kitten are leaching her magic, leaving her worn out and feverish if she is too long and too far away from her mates.
While this might have been the Cassis and Sam show, the other males weren’t forgotten 🙂
Oh oh oh and guess who we meet again???? Yeah, I’m so not spoiling that for you, go read the book!

Pacing & Flow:

The pacing is pretty high at the start after which it mellows out a bit (thank god). That said, it never got too slow and kept my attention throughout the whole instalment. Good balance between action and a fair amount of conversation.

The book itself:

The book was well written, but as I read an advanced readers copy I can’t say if there are going to be errors in the final edit. And yes, there is sex described (if that is important to you) and omg it was hot 😀
The book is 208 pages, spread over 29 chapters and told from multiple points of view (Sam and Cassis mostly).

Final Thoughts:

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and all I can really say is: another great series concluded, kudos to Alex Lidell for another job well done 😀
