The Light Returns
Aw Yes! While Neuron is talking a lot of crap, BAM Apollo comes in and knocks him down. The moment we’ve all been waiting for, where the lovers are reunited is finally here. And what a beautiful moment it was. Fighting Hell’s army and the candles burning light, the lovers make it out just in time. After a small welcome gathering the couple heads home to some well deserved alone time.
It’s crazy how much I care about these two characters. Seeing them reunited was one of the best moments I’ve read in awhile. I loved that Blanco had Apollo’s light shining bright and overwhelming the page. It helped give a sense of homecoming. When they were talking about why they were with each other it was just a sweet moment. Let’s take a moment to appreciate Steve Orlando. This has been one of the bloodiest kickass over all awesome books. At the same time, it was one of the sweetest and tender love stories I have ever read. To have both those in one book and have it done well speaks volumes to the talent to the writer. Midnighter and Apollo has by far become one of my favorite books and characters of all time.
