I can’t believe this is the final book in the series! It felt like I was saying goodbye to my best friends, and I really wasn’t ready to let the guys go. I know I can reread this anytime, but it wouldn’t be the same.
First off, Pain is the perfect final book in the Curse of the Gods series! The authors have tied up all the loose ends, and the plot kept me so engaged. Every revelation unfolded smoothly, the bad guys defeated and Willa and her knights finally getting their HEA!
The plot is action-packed, fast-paced and emotional!
The authors have built such an amazing world. It was unique, lighter than the usual fantasy novels, but can still stand as a fantasy series.
Willa Knight has grown so much as a character. Looking back, I think I loved watching her grow. From being clumsy and creating chaos, to thinking through her actions and being the powerful person she was meant to be. I really loved Willa and her crazy AF humour.
About the guys… I’m gonna miss Coen, Rome, Aros, Yael and Siret so much. The build-up from Book 1 to Book 5, them finally tying the knot, was probably my favourite part of this book! Together, they are such a cohesive unit.
I recommend reading Neutral, that is Emmy and Cyrus’ book. Yes, they are together and I’m so happy for her. Emmy’s the perfect best friend and I loved how Willa got jealous about her best friend’s relationship.
The supporting casts – Abil and Adeline, Donald (Willa’s mom) and Jakan (not spoiling anything) were great. I really hope the authors make a spinoff of the series featuring them.
The plot also comes together nicely. It begins where Book 4 ends. Willa is stuck at Pica’s house. Pica is the Goddess of Love, Rau’s lover and completely crazy-pants. I sympathised with her initially, but she turned out to be a jerk.
Willa finally meets the other Gods, trying to get them at her side. There’s this hilarious scene where Willa turns a God into an animal and I almost died of laughter. Willa never lost that chaotic charm despite all the burdens she had to bear.
There are more explanations about how their world works – the existence of Topia (residence of the Gods) and Minatsol (residence of the sols and dwellers). We see the Panteras again, who try their best to help Willa without ‘revealing’ too much.
The origin of Willa finally comes to light, and I’d guessed who her father was by then.
The final showdown, although anti-climatic, was damn satisfying! And that epilogue! Everyone gets their HEA, including Willa’s mom.
Pain (Curse of the Gods series) Blurb:
Willa Knight: The saviour of both worlds, or the destruction of everything?
Sometimes history lies, and the tales of Minatsol and Topia are no different. Since the birth of Topia, Staviti has woven a web of deceit around the truth of Creation, striving only to maintain his power while destroying anything that gets in his way. Now, Willa and the Abcurses are determined to strip back the layers, to uncover the truth, and to understand the true nature of the two worlds before it’s too late.
The only problem?
Any wrong step in their quest to restore balance might have terrible repercussions. Every single being—living or dead—might have to pay the price.
This is a full novel, 90,000 words. Book 5 of 5 in the Curse of the Gods Series
