Well I am finally reviewing this book after reading it almost 2 weeks ago. I think that maybe it’s taken me so long because I don’t want it to be over! I loved this series, it was everything, I didn’t want it to end. This husband and wife duo author are truly amazing. They also left a little something at the end that leaves it open for maybe a fourth book and I hope that’s in the works because I would love to read more. Especially now that Nevada and Rogan have their relationship locked in, there doesn’t have to be any drama in that department, they can just fight the monsters among them as a full team which would make them so much stronger. I was so into this book I didn’t even highlight anything cause I was so involved with reading so I’ll have to go back and find some great parts (which will be hard cause it was all so good).
When life hits you in the gut, it’s always a sucker punch. You never see it coming. One moment you’re walking along, worrying your little worries and making quiet plans, and the next you’re rolled into a ball, trying to hug yourself against the pain, frantic and reeling, your mind a jumble of scared thoughts.
This book starts off right where the last book ended. And it starts with a bang getting right into the heart of what this book will be focused on. Don’t get me wrong they also have to figure out who is behind this “take over the world” business they keep running into. But the big thing is Nevada making her family safe from all kinds of evil especially her crazy grandmother, that they just found out about.
“Victoria can do everything I do and much more, and she does it better. I’m just now figuring out the extent of my power. She’s been trained in the use of magic since she could hold chalk in her hand. She has power, money, and troops we don’t. She’ll do whatever she has to do to gain control of me and Catalina at the very least.”
There was so much to this book. It had drama, suspense, edge of your seat wondering what will happen next, action, fight scenes, and romance. It had something for everyone. I have loved this series from the beginning, I had a few issues here and there but nothing to stop me from liking the actual story line. But for me I think this was the strongest book. Nevada had her head on straight, she knew what she wanted and she was going for it. Especially in her relationship with Rogan, she wasn’t in her head wondering, she knew that she was going to be with him and she was going to fight, even him, to make it happened. Meanwhile these two really were meant to be so there was no reason to fight it, they deserved a happily ever after.
“Before we begin, are there any affiliations and alliances to other Houses you wish to declare?”
“Yes. In the event of the formation of House Baylor, House Baylor intends to sign a Mutual Aid Pact with House Harrison.”
“So noted,” the Keeper stated.
“Also, I wish to announce my engagement to Connor Rogan of House Rogan.” Everyone sat up straighter and looked at Rogan. For the first time since I’d known him, shock showed on Rogan’s face. It was there only for a fleeting second, but I saw it and I would savor it for the rest of my life.
That may have been a bit spoilerish, but I mean, we all know they are going to end up together I just wanted to point out that Nevada was standing up for their relationship and also that this girl had balls. She take everything head on and tackles it, she is a force to be reckoned with! I love that we get all our questions answered in this book, especially what Nevada’s sisters powers are that was something I was hoping for and enjoyed seeing how it played out. One thing I don’t really understand is how all the “kids” in her family are Primes or extremely strong with their magic, how is this possible when apparently her father had no magic at all. I mean they need to be strong for the story line I’m just wondering how it all came about, not enough for me to dislike any part of the book just a little mental wondering of my own.
Obviously because this is the third book in the series I can’t tell you much about what happens because it would spoil so much, but I can tell you if you haven’t read the series start now it is so worth it. The writing alone is so well done this author duo is very good at story building. Do I recommend this series absolutely, do I hope there will be a fourth book you bet your ass I do, Did I want it to be over NO fucking way! Do yourself a favor and get into this world of magic and mayhem, so much fun! Happy Reading!
While Lenora’s people had sorted out the arrests of Sturm and his personnel, and first responders had pulled Grandma Frida from the rubble of the wall, Bern had broken the cypher on Olivia’s files. It detailed the entirety of what she knew about the conspiracy: names, details, crimes committed in the name of the cause. We knew everything except for the identity of Caesar. That remained a secret. – Let’s hope we get to find out in a fourth book…… soon haha!
Here is the series reading order:
