My rating: ❤❤❤❤ of 5!
This entire series have been one amazing whirlwind and I have fallen in love with each of the 5 ravens’, so I was very much looking forward to this epic show down, and yet I’m left feeling unfulfilled.
The time has come, the fight between Morgan and the Morrigan is unavoidable.
Before Morgan sent three of her Ravens back to our world, she tasked them with finding an army. She hasn’t had any contact with them since they left the Otherside, so she just has to hope and trust they’ve completed said task.
Morgan, Anita and the Morrigan are gathered and ready to complete the ritual, as it’s time for the three of them to be re-united and rain havoc on both worlds as one.
However, allies can be found anywhere, at any time, if you just have the courage to believe. The Morgan does. She makes a new ally at the last minute, and it seems to be a wise choice that helps tip the scales in favour of her and her Ravens.
The plot of the book was brilliant and I’ve enjoyed it a lot, which is why I’ve given the book a rating of ❤❤❤❤. With that being said there are a few things that turned me off throughout the series, not to mention the epilogue of this final book.
- In book four, Obsidian Fire, I so hadn’t expected three of Morgans guardians to be taken like that. Like *poof*, here one minute, gone the next. Well planned Bunny! My one complaint is, why is it Bunny that has to be the one to betray her? It’s just a bit too cliche that it’s the disfigured insecure guardian!
- I don’t want to give any spoilers for the ending of this book, but for the nontraditional relationship Morgan has with each of her Raven’s, I was very disappointed with the epilogue, another cliche that wasn’t really needed.
- Again, I don’t want to give any spoilers but I do think that Angel took the easy way out here. Instead of explaining what happens in the epilogue, so we as readers can connect with the moment, she just kind of goes “Oh I’ve done this and that” – that’s impossible to connect with and at least one of the things was something I’d really looked forward to, so now I’m left with a bit of a “meh” feeling because Angel couldn’t be bothered letting me read about it and connect with the moment. Boo!
Personally, I feel that this series would have been better if it had been 3 books instead of the six it is now. That way each instalment would offer a lot more insight, the pace would be easier to digest and overall, I think it would make it a lot easier to deal!
