My Review:

4.5 stars — Another fabulous beta read!!

Solid conclusion to the Amelia/Aidan trilogy! I really appreciated all the little tie-ins with things from the previous 2 books. And holy cow did some things go in a completely different direction than I was expecting! Totally kept me on my toes.

I always find it difficult to review the final books in a series, b/c I don’t want to give things away!! Plus, at this point I think my reading slump has instead turned into a review slump where I’m just not sure what to write to convey my feelings.

So my feelings…. Well, this book picks up right where we left off at the end of Bound by Spells. The chemistry between Amelia and Aidan is still delicious. Amelia wasn’t always my favourite heroine, she could be a bit too…stubborn? No, that’s not it. Regardless, she’s still that Amelia in this one, but she’s tempered a bit more with patience and thoughtfulness. I appreciated the consistency in her character but showing that growth as well. Aidan was actually a bit more alpha male than I was expecting. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it caught me off guard here and there.

You know who was the surprise winner for me?? MICAH!!! I have been transformed into a card carrying Micah fan. That boy just walked in, grabbed my heart and wouldn’t let go. Even when his story went in a slightly different direction than I was expecting, I was still all in. And Baleon became so much more too!! Definitely my surprising fave characters of this book. It didn’t hurt that we got a few chapters from Micah’s perspective.

All in all this was a winner for me. And if my guess is right, then I can’t wait for a spin off!!
