"Darkness is a tricky thing. Especially when it cloaks itself in light."
Luka isn't dead. He's not beyond saving. Tess knows because she saw him with her own eyes. After what she saw, she's sure of one thing: If they don't rescue him soon, Luka won't be Luka anymore.
If only she could convince the other members of the hub. They're not sure Tess saw what she claims she saw. And they're preoccupied by the fact that their kind is being systematically eradicated. Answers lie in an ancient prophecy, one that revolves around a 17-year-old girl who never asked for any of this.
K.E. Ganshert's final installment in The Gifting Series brings listeners on an action-packed journey through loss, sacrifice, betrayal, and the impossible choice between what we want most and what we know is right.

"when are the movies coming out?"
Loved this series!!!! As intriguing as The Hunger Games and way better than the Divergent series! So i ask? When are the movies coming out?
this was an amazing series, I am so glad I stumbled upon it. I would highly recommend it everyone.
"The best of the series"
This is the third book in ‘The Gifting’ series by K.E. Ganshert. This book picks up immediately where the second left off. I really enjoyed the first two books, but this was my favorite. We finally got to see Tess develop into who she was meant to be. Once she accepted who she was, she was a force to be reckoned with. The ending was nice and I thought it wrapped up most story-lines well. You can see in my ‘didn’t like’ section why I said most.
What I liked:
– Again, Tess’s growth – emotional and her abilities
– Heather Masters did a phenomenal job narrating this series. I would listen to her again.
– Like the second book, this one is action-packed. I didn’t ever feel bored during this book. While it was action packed, it also didn’t feel rushed. I thought the pace was about perfect.
– The development of secondary characters. Getting to know Jillian, Link, Cap, and a few new ones was fun. I liked that we got to dive into their backstories or personalities a little more.
– Ganshert wasn’t afraid to take risks with her characters. We lose a couple characters in this book, but nobody’s death felt like it was put in there for shock value (I’m looking at you Allegiant). While heartbreaking, it felt necessary to move the story along and for the character development of Tess.
What I didn’t:
– There was KIND – OF a love triangle, but I didn’t feel like it was completely resolved. I can’t say more than that because of spoilers, but this was the only thing about this book that irked me. Overall, it was fantastic.
Would I recommend this book to family and/or friends?
"a little action packed into a lot of drama"
if you took all the good parts out of this trilogy you might have enough for a small single novel. the plot was almost nonexistent and it consisted mostly of tess doubting her abilities and her relationship and trying to hide everything from luca and Luca trying to assure her that he loves her. it made me think that if I were in Lucas shoes I would have dumped her and found someone with a little more confidence.
When do the movies come out?
These were my favourite books...ever. They were so good. I recommend this book to everyone I know. So I ask, when do the movies come out?
I love that this story reminds me of our own spiritual battles on earth. can't say enough about how much I enjoyed this series!
Really enjoyed all three books! It's well paced, and the conflicts with internal and external are believably explained.
Narration was amazing. truly enjoyed the narrator!
Really awesome read! Excellent character development and moral compass. I am sad to leave them all.
Really enjoyable story. I loved this trilogy. And the narrator was great! The characters really grew on you. And this story evoked emotion.
"Worth a credit...?"
The entire series is very engaging, and the story isn't your typical vampires and werewolves teen fiction. I enjoyed it and cried like a baby at the end, but the main character was a little annoying with her lack of self confidence, self esteem, and penchant for self deprecating whining. As a former teenage bookworm I can attest to the influence of our written heroines and heroes. They are our peers, teaching us how to act and think about life and ourselves (like the living peers of those teenagers not inclined to hole up in books). For this series I would feel differently if the character grew and finally embraced herself, but that didn't really happen or at least it was wishy washy at best. So, unfortunately this particular heroine could have a negative impact on a young reader's psyche already taught by society to be insecure.
