This book starts on the cusp of a major war and once the war begins, wow, does it bring the battles. What an emotionally charged story! It took me some time to read this book because I had to keep setting it down after a betrayal or a sacrifice occurred. There were many shocking scenes and losses that I am still reeling over! There were also some heartwarming moments with a few characters that almost made up for the losses.
Speaking of the characters, there were a few that I really wanted to smack around - from both sides! Persephone being the one that I really, really wanted to have a good talkin’ to! I think I might even be holding a slight grudge against her, ha ha ha. I just loved reading Age of War because despite the major war angle (which I am not usually a fan of) there were some sweet moments between some unlikely couples as well as many twists and turns that have me keyed up to read the next installment in this series! This is a story and a series that I highly recommend.
