The Falcon Soars by Gabrielle Mathieu (Falcon Trilogy, #3)
A powerful ending to a series that has been edgy, dark and tumultuous form the very beginning. Once again, Gabrielle Mathieu has left me amazed at her ability to create a veil-like atmosphere that straddle genres like a pro. Certainly a paranormal read, definitely a dark romance, there is still a sense of adventure in this final piece of this trilogy’s journey for Peppa Mueller.
From the moment Peppa “awakens” on a rooftop, naked to the years in between, I have followed her story, and it is definitely intriguing. Imagine learning a totem of a falcon lives within your soul with the power to overtake your mind and your actions. Peppa struggled for years to learn to control her inner beast, only to find that now, she will need her falcon totem more than ever.
As Peppa struggles with her medical studies, her impending marriage and with having to see the man she truly loves and cannot have, she will make the decision to risk all she holds dear in a perilous journey to find a person whose disappearance has left other lives in limbo. Meanwhile, Peppa’s own existence is threatened as an assassin makes an attempt on her life. Someone knows her secret and they want her dead.
So many secrets, so many agendas are revealed, once again, Peppa will be forced to face who and what she is and who she can truly trust.
Gabrielle Mathieu’s writing is bold, it has an edge to it and it holds the promise of mystery, romance and danger on each and every page. Witness a character living life on the edge, feeling alone, holding secrets beyond imagining. Now picture that character being betrayed again and again, yet still having the heart to get up one more time, all while caught up in the machinations of an unseen enemy and you will discover the dark beauty of this trilogy and how brilliantly Ms. Mathieu put on the final wrap to her work!
