Review of Black Swan by Kel Carpenter and Aurelia Jane

Black Swan (A Demon's Guide to the Afterlife Book 3) by [Kel Carpenter, Aurelia Jane]

Everyone wants to be different, until they are. Take it from a true Heinz 57, being special isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Especially when it sets off a series of events that will end the world. You know, the catastrophe I was sent to prevent in the first place.

Fate has a funny way of doing whatever it wants.

In trying to change the future, I’m now the catalyst for destruction.

I should have known it was a bad omen when I shifted into a white raven instead of a wolf.

Our enemies may be more powerful than we ever imagined, but I’ve got a talking crow and Bloody Mary on my side.

I have friends now—and family. Not to mention, one hell of a love life I have no intention of giving up. I would die for any of them, but that’s not the plan.

It’s time to see if I can stop this black swan.
Tick. Tock.

BLACK SWAN is book three in A Demon’s Guide to the Afterlife series. This is the FINAL book in Fury’s story. Start the series with DARK HORSE right now!

This is an adult paranormal romance series with multiple love interests and some dark elements. If you don’t like strong but flawed women and alphahole heroes that need to learn a thing or two about boundaries–this book is not for you. If you love works by Tate James, Ivy Asher, Raven Kennedy, Joely Sue Burkhart, and CM Stunich, then dive right in to the Afterlife. It’ll be one hell of a ride.

This was a decent ending for Fury’s story. There were definite aspects I never saw coming, but it flowed well and I quite enjoyed it. The relationships were and are really what drove this book/the series. I love Hades and Fury’s relationship and the dynamic there. There were a few times that I didn’t read fully and was skimming, but it was never for that long. One great take away is the depth of what being forced into situations can do to a person, and how unhealthy hoping mechanisms can’t be encouraged and it’s okay to get outside help for problem behaviours. It’s also okay to not put up with people who abuse you. All in all, I can’t wait to read the last (?) book in this series of Hades and Jules, but I greatly did love getting to be in Fury’s world.
