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.

Battle

Fantastic ending! I loved it.
I loved the twist and turns, I never suspected.
OMG Tink hehe he is awesome just like I always said. He and the Summer Prince cracked me up I loved.
Ivy really grew for me in this book. She had a lot to work through and she does but what I think the biggest growth she learned was she isn’t alone in everything she had to learn to not only trust in Ren but let him see her venerable.

The ending wasn’t what I was expecting but it was so much more it really was kind of perfect.

I loved the narration and I am so glad it was the same narrator throughout she gave each character their own voice and it made the audiobook so enjoyable.

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.

cliffhanger much?!

I kept waiting for a final resolution to the whole fae queen revelation to no avail. Loved the character developments and highly engaging plot twists throughout the trilogy, yet this final ending left me with a gooey romance feeling that lacked true conviction due to the incomplete conflicts.

Last Book

I enjoyed this series . This final book was just as interesting as the first. Full of Strong characters, storyline and humor. Love the author's ability to make you feel like you're right there with the characters.

And there goes my heart...

My heart broke for Ren and Ivy in the last book and continued to do so for a good portion of this book. Ren is now one of my favorite book boyfriends, I just loved how his feelings for Ivy never waivered. Ivy was confused and understandably so but sometimes I just wanted to yell at her to talk to Ren or Tink! Many secrets come out and some I did not see coming.
