Book Review: A Matter of Arrogance and Apocalypses (Dark Matters 4)

A Matter of Arrogance and Apocalypses - Claire Robyns

I've loved the whole DARK MATTERS series and found this final book A MATTER OF ARROGANCE & APOCALYPSES to be the best of the series. The author has a fantastic imagination, and the story is fast paced with barely a breath before the next adventure begins. There's depth to this whole series, and especially this book too - here we find Kelan & Lily locked in the age old battle between the sexes – the head/duty/male view versus the heart/caring/female view is very well done, and portrayed in an exciting way.

Secondary romances and exciting sub plots abound - the relationship between Greyston & Georgina is so different from Kelan & Lily – theirs is intense in an emotional, romantic way that suits the essentially gentle Lily with Kelan as protector while Greyston & Georgina’s is a meeting of equals in lust and passion and reckless courage & their need for freedom. Brilliant!!

Another great book with strong characters – Kelan & Lily are so different to Greyston & Georgina, and yet the chemistry the tension is just as strong – Kelan is a fascinating hero, completely my favourite (although Grayston has matured nicely too over the series). Their relationship also explores another important male/female issue – communication!

All in all A MATTER OF ARROGANCE & APOCALYPSES is an exciting end to a great series. Well worth the read.
