Calla has always welcomed war. But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting.
There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping her brother safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all.
And when the battle finally ends, there's deciding what to do and who to love. That is, if Calla can make it out alive.
What just HAPPENED?!
Seriously, what the hell was that ending about? I had heard that the ending to this trilogy upset a lot of people but, come oooon!
I love this series. I really do. The only thing that stopped me from finishing was the reaction from a lot of readers on how it ended and I have to say I more than understand why. What I was anticipating with dread actually happened regardless of my hopes and pleas. The worst thing is, I understand where the author was coming from by doing it, but it wasn't done with taste…not at all. I'm so disappointed.
I don't even know what to say past the ending. It just seems as if the whole trilogy was completely ruined by that tragedy of an ending - I won't be able to see it the same way ever again.
What makes me mad is that this book was still a great read. I mean, it was literally the last chapter or so that brought it all crashing down. I love the characters to bits - apart from a choice few - and I'm sad to see them go, especially in the way that they did.
I just…can't even.
My rating: 6/10 (I would love to give this book 1 out of bloody 10 but that would be my love for Ren talking)
