Summary

Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It's more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine...and it's coming between her and the man she's fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life-altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far-reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.

If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels and work not only with those she loves but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies.

Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves - and, ultimately, to save herself.

Very disappointing from JLA

I’m a fan of JL Armentrout, her Covenant series are my all time favourite YA books and I thoroughly enjoyed her many other works too (despite the often poor editing, relentlessly repeated and overused phrases, cliches and textbook characters). But this whole series was way below par, and the third instalment was simply a chore to get through.
Where do I start? The narration was mediocre at best. Amy kept mixing up who she wanted to give voice to, accents and tones were all over the place. Her males are cheesy and her impersonations inconsistent.
One of the biggest shockers was the sudden name change of a rather important character: David of the first 2 books suddenly became Daniel, I mean, come on, how do you forget what you called the order’s New Orleans leader, Jennifer??? And how much is the editor that didn’t pick up on it make in a month, because I totally want his/her job.
I found this book very tired and rather slow, uneventful and thoroughly predictable. Even in the last 5 minutes I hoped for a big shocker that never came. The ending was “meh” and didn’t really weave in the ends. I didn’t even feel the main romance, which is an absolute first for me in a JLA book!
The only positive I can say about it is there was a few fairly good steamy scenes in it. By far the weakest link in the chain, I wouldn’t recommend this series, but those who got this far will probably want to know the ending just like I did, so it will sell copies nonetheless.

Loved it

I loved the being to this trilogy although a part of me hopes for spin offs or another book in a few years. The narrator is insanely good and I just love these books.

Meehhh

It was alright. I loved the first 2 books but this one had a lot of self pity and whining.

Continuity errors, not believable characters

I liked the first two books. I cannot finish this last one. David’s name inexplicably changed to Daniel between books 2&3, and Dane is sometimes Dale which is weird. How did this get past the editor? How do you forget the names of your main characters?? Additionally, Ren and Ivy have become increasingly one dimensional. It seems like Armentrout wants us to believe it’s true love because she keeps saying that it is, but doesn’t present it in a convincing way. The book gets pretty slow at times, and 2/3 of the way through I can’t bear to keep going. I’ve enjoyed some very slow books, but there isn’t enough intrigue or depth here to keep me going. This book feels like it was rushed to press and needed a lot more polishing.

Great Ending to the Trilogy

Everything came together nicely in the final book of the trilogy. Love worked, catching the bad guys worked, the story concludes with a sigh of happiness.

Completely unpredictable...

Any additional comments?

Holy crap!! The last 2 hours of this book have blown my mind. Tink was a total surprise. He's my favorite character and one of the reasons I love these book's. I've missed so much sleep by not being able to pause. Never have I been this swept away by a series. This one ends with the possibility of another installment and I can't wait.

I want more!

I have infinite love for this series and it's pretty easy for me to be pleased with anything that JLA writes. She has been one of my favorite authors when I started getting into romance and nothing has changed that. I found Brave to be the perfect ending for this trilogy, it was a bit tough for me to get through it because of Ivy's decision to keep everyone close to her at bay. She was falling apart and refused to reach out to the two that she loved the most, Ren and Tink.

In Brave, we pick up right where we left off in Torn. Ivy went through a very traumatic time under the Prince's capture. She wasn't there that long, but she knew what it was like to lose the ability to control her mind and body, and she was forced to do something that she'd never be okay with it. Thankfully, she was rescued, but she'd never been the same after that emotionally and physically.

It was so tough to watch her deal with the aftermath of being captured. It was such a low point for her and my heart broke for her constantly, but there were so many moments when I just wanted to knock some sense into her. I kept yelling, "Talk to Ren!" ... Ren just embodies everything amazing and he definitely ranks as one of my favorite JLA heroes. But I'll admit, he doesn't exactly get a free pass because of what he did in Torn had me wanting to punch him in the face!

I thought the plot carried on great in this one. It was packed with action and suspense, there was just so much going on and it kept me hooked the entire time. And JLA surprised us with a bit more twists and turn, but my hunches were all there since we've learned more about the fae. However, it just peaked my interest even more and was left with more questions, which I knew it would be impossible to have them answered in this book.

And I wish I could have my own personal Tink, one of my favorite sidekicks and he's just a gallon bucket full of surprises! I love all his different sides, but my favorite would have to be his rare moments of endearment towards Ivy. Ren, Ivy and Tink ... they're a family and nothing will keep them apart.

So there you have it, I love this series! And it was about time I finished it, right in time for the release of The Prince. I was elated to hear about him having his own book because he is who most of my unanswered questions were about. When it comes to side characters, I think he'll definitely be my favorite.

ehh

Not my favorite out of the 3. Narrators voice was terrible, almost monotone and droning. The inflection and intensity of her voice lacked heavily where the more intense scenes were.

loved every minute of this book

Can we have a Tinky spin off?

After reading some of the reviews about how annoying Ivy was I almost didnt get this book. I was glad I did. I couldn't stop listening, the new characters introduced in this installment just added to an already great story. I didnt like the prince but in the end, I was a sucker for a happy ending. I hope there will be a fourth book, just to finish off the story.

wonderful story to follow!

So I have to say I loved this series, the characters were great. My favorite had to be tink! His sassy attitude really made me smile. The love story between Ivy and Ren was relatable, the give and take was good, but what really got me was how it wasn't just like 'hey we are just magically over every traumatic thing that just happened' you really get to see them deal with things. My only regret is that there was not an epilogue! I wanted to see what happened a few years from now!
