I have binned the WhispeSync version and am trying to plow my way through the written version, although I have other books taking precedence at the moment as they are better. This is an ok book to read on a boring train journey for instance, but you won't drop everything else to read it.
The narrator is a fine voice actor, but her twang and style is not suitable for this type of fiction.
Erin creates engaging characters as well as whipping up a thrilling tale, and The Adversary is no exception; there's sibling rivalry, devilish deals, intrigue and espionage, despicable villains, and a real sense of overarching menace that grows throughout the book. Most importantly, all of this fits together wonderfully into a multilayered plot; Erin creates tough situations for her characters and doesn't offer any easy escapes, meaning each resolution is hard-won and all the more satisfying. Definitely recommended.
Farideh and Havilar are heirs to a very powerful warlock and because of this they are very important to all demons from the Underworld. The twin sisters couldn't be more different and some of the decisions made by Farideh threaten to break their tight bond. It is irrelevant why she makes those choices, because in the end everyone perceives her deeds to be those of traitor.
The two women also have romantic interactions going on throughout the book. Fortunately those relationships never overshadow the spectacular plot.
Farideh is actually bound to a devil called Lorcan. He isn't exactly Mr Charming but then that is exactly what makes him so interesting and attractive. The ultimate bad boy attitude with the powers of hell to back him up. He also has this completely psychotic sister called Sairche, she and her brother spend all their time trying to out-do, out-bargain and even out-kill each other.
Havilar is attracted to someone who is unobtainable to her, due to her social class and this problem takes her attention away from her own powers and the strife her sister has placed them both in.
There is so much intricate plot-weaving going on from the start to the end, which made this an extremely good read. I highly recommend it and look forward to the next book in the Sundering series.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.
