Summary

The Series Finale
 

Death is only the beginning.

Nivian's job is simple. Protect the balance of life and death above anything else, even at the risk of her own life. So when the sudden and lingering presence of a dark guardian makes her question if death is coming for her, Nivian is determined to be the hunter, not the hunted. 

Tension breaks out between the watchers and the reapers as the balance shifts, threatening all of existence, and a struggle for power leads to unimaginable consequences. 

An unknown force is threatening the balance and putting all of existence at risk and Nivian is caught in the middle of a fight between the watchers and dark guardians that will endanger everything they’ve all been working to protect. 

Betrayal will take everything when Nivian is forced to make a choice that will forever change their destinies.

Excellent Conclusion!

The Fallen is the fourth installment and a fantastic series finale. The storyline is exciting, entertaining, and engaging. In the end, everything comes together very nicely. Ali Winters has an incredible imagination; she has created a fantastic world with fabulous characters. I had a wonderful time listening to the series. The storylines had all the components of a great urban fantasy, magic, drama, romance, friendship, action, suspense, unexpected twists, and turns.

The narration by Sarah L. Colton was excellent. She captured the characters, emotions, animation, and suspense found in the pages. She literally brought each story to life. Overall, The Hunted is a wonderful series, and I highly recommend it.

Captivating and Emotional Journey

Even though this book was pretty sad I think it’s my favorite of the series. I love Caspian and really felt bad for him and the situation he found himself in. His is a story of forbidden love and heartbreak.
His story holds the answers to all the burning questions most of us likely had throughout the series.
My heart broke when the reason why Nevian can’t remember her past is revealed.
I felt many emotions throughout their story and definitely needed a few tissues.
If you’re dying to find out how it all started this would be the book to read or listen to.

Great Ending!

This was different as it was more of a prequel but I felt all of my lingering questions were answered. I'm sad this is the end I have enjoyed these characters very much. Sarah L. Colton's narrating was amazing. 🎧AudiobookObsession

Beautiful

My heart still feels sad. Hated to end this series but wow. What an amazing series with a truly beautiful ending. The author has built these fantastic characters that I don't want to let go of. It was emotional but it fit for a truly great ending. I am now a forever fan of Ali Winters. I look forward to more adventures with her and I will probably reread this series! The narrator truly made me fall for the characters and gave them life.

What a series!!!

This is by far one of the best series I’ve listened to.
The detail, the descriptions, the emotions... Everything was put into this story and more.
The characters were amazing, especially Nivian and Kain. I would’ve loved to have seen more of him in this book because he was adorable.
I highly recommend this series to all Fantasy/Paranormal readers.

*Spoiler: The only thing I’d like to know is how Yeva knee Nivian was taken by force when she was adamant Nivian had betrayed her.*

Trying to keep up!!

Wow, I’m so confused, I’m not sure who is on what side here now. So many twists these books will have you guessing all the way to the end by the looks of it. Great narration.

An Emotional and Fitting End to the Series



4th in series, read books 1-3 before starting this. This story takes us back in time to before this series started and gives us a glimpse of how Caspian and Nivian’s relationship began. The author does an amazing job with world building, and sucks you into the book so easily. I loved this series, when an author can get you so immersed in the story that you laugh and cry with/for the characters. This book wraps up the story, bringing together the characters we love and giving us a bit more insight into why everything evolved the way it did.

Great ending to the series

Almost a bit of a prequel, this book starts by showing how Caspian and Nivian’s relationship began. As always, Ali Winters does an amazing job with world building, smoothly and deftly drawing the listener into this emotional story. I loved this series, with these wonderful characters, smiling when they succeeded and tearing up when they felt heartbroken and betrayed. I loved watching them come together, people from two adversarial groups learning to work together, even as they faced (and overcame) betrayal and mistrust. This story wraps up the story, bringing together the characters we love and giving readers more insight into why everything evolved the way it did.

Sarah Colton was great. Wonderful pacing, great voice, with good range of voices to help her represent the different characters. It’s a series that builds on each of the prior book so it should be read in order. But it’s such a fantastic series that this won’t be a hardship!

I requested this book and this is my voluntary review.

Ending it Strong

I just loved how the last book was the prequel to the series! It really made me want to just read the series all over again to hear if I missed anything!

If you want to be swept away into a different world this would be a great way to do it if you love pondering the balance between life and death. It was a solid read and brought all characters full circle.

Nice background to the story

This was a nice background to the overall series. I’m glad I read it but don’t feel like I would have missed out if I had not. The narrator as always was great, as she is the same as the rest of the series.

The Fallen

This was a prequel to the other three books in the series to help tie up loose ends. The narration was strong for this book as it was with the others.

Lovely ending to the series

This was such a good ending to the series. I loved every book and the characters in each of the books. The author did such a good job with this story and the narrator did an amazing job with the story and the characters. I loved how it ended and am so happy I got to listen to the series. I will be very sad to have no more of these stories and this series but it was still so good!

So Sad

I am soooo sad to say goodbye to these amazing characters! This series has been just everything!! I feel like Nivian is family, well really all the characters are! The world building in this was immense and beautiful and the history was so engrossing! Loved the narrator as well! If you want a series that you can fall in love with then this is for you!

Great conclusion!

This is the 4th installment to this series. While I’m sad that it came to a end I’m happy to have finally gotten some backstory. For me, this book was more of a prequel. It details how everything happened between Eva and Silas and how Nivian came to be.
The narrator was great and I’m hoping for more as I love this world and not ready to let go.
