Summary

Hell hath no fury.
At first glance, most see only a shy girl from New York, but to the denizens of the night - vampires, witches, and their ilk - I am a nightmare given flesh, born to raze their kind from this very earth. I am the Icon, the Shining One, the last defender of humanity against the oncoming tide of darkness.
They say my coming was foretold, that prophecies speak of a beacon of hope who will light the way during the end days. It is said I am destined to vanquish the last of the Magi, and face the Night Spawn in the final battle for the fate of mankind.
If only things could be so easy.
Despite all my power, I am afraid. And if I can't conquer my fear, face my demons, and overcome the feelings I have for a man I must destroy, then I shall be utterly consumed and the world will know endless suffering for my failure.

If Bill read this book, he'd get over Sheila quick

The positives: The writing isn't bad, the action is decent, the quality and quantity of character development is good. I love that we get more backstory and insight into peripheral characters in the Tome of Bill universe.

The negatives: Sheila. How many times can the same character face the same internal struggle and come to the same epiphany, over and over and over again, in one book? By the time I was done reading this one, I was wholeheartedly rooting for Bill & Sally, or frankly, Bill & anyone but Sheila.

Also, though the narrator did a decent job overall, she occasionally mispronounced a word here and there. Not a big deal, but it's a pet peeve of mine in audiobooks. Don't they have someone monitoring that kind of thing during production?

Worth reading, but definitely my least favorite of the ToB books.

I didn't love it

The Tome of Bill is a series that I have enjoyed from the very beginning but this book wasn't great. It did answer question that came up in book 7 as to where in the heck was the Icon during all of the action. I'm not sure if it was the story itself with all its self pitty and whining or if it would have been better with a different narrator. This was definitely not my favorite book in the series.
