Review: Kalona's Fall
Title: Kalona's Fall
Author: P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
Date(s) Read: Jan 1 - Jan 3, 2016
Kalona, the winged immortal. His history was a secret. How did he go from being the Goddess' Warrior and Guardian to her enemy and betrayer? Was he tainted by the Darkness like Neferet, or did he always crave power over honor, and control over faith?
Seriously? Kalona is by far one of my favorite bad guys. Dunno why I'm so attracted to this fallen angel. This creature that has turned from Warrior and Guardian to Enemy and Betrayer.
This book is an insight into Kalona's history, his past. What made him who he has become. His relationship with Nyx and Erebus was absolutely not what I had originally expected, and in fact it surprised me and was more than I could even ever expect.
Kalona and Erebus were crafted by Mother Earth for Nyx. 3 tasks were given to prove their worth to the Goddess, their elements were chosen to allow them to wield them to gain the Goddess' favor. Both had feelings for Nyx, but their feelings differed greatly. Nyx, however, cared for them both quite deeply.
As you can already determine, Kalona's choices were not the best and ultimately lead to him being cast from Nyx's realm. Fallen Warrior is what he would always be seen as.
I am greatly looking forward to reading more of Kalona's story in the upcoming House of Night books.
