Finally - this is the ending I was hoping for. Action packed and full of easy going details that really helped the story flow well. Although I would have liked to hear from all of the girls, rather than just having it told in Vanessa's point of view, it still was nice to hear a final goodbye from all of them.

I like the idea that Jimena has plans to train a new round of Daughters. And I like that Vanessa is finally starting to accept her gift and like it, even though it's about time since it's t

The actual ending to the series that came out years after the other 12. It took me just a little over an hour to finish, but boy am I glad I found it. A very satifying ending to a great series to grow up with.

this book is an interesting book. Its the last book of the series and it is mainly about what the girls choose to be.

This was an extremely disappointing end to the whole series. We found out the Sons of the Dark are dead. What was the Legend of Four even supposed to accomplish? Clearly nothing. Lame.

We find out there will be four new daughters, but I bet they're also going to be like... fifteen and sixteen (most likely sixteen because Maddie in Sons of the Dark was CLEARLY meant to be one, and she was already able to drive on her own), so basically, they get one year to figure it all out before they either die

I began reading this series about 9 years ago and continued reading as new books came out. Therefore, this review is for the collection as a whole. I have to say that although it has taken a long time to finish, I greatly enjoyed the story. Lynne Ewing's writing, although simple and sometimes repetitive, gave sharp discriptions and decent character development. In general, it was a great teen series. I am very sure, at this point in my life, I would not have the same fulfillment from the series ...more

I cannot BELIEVE that this book has an average rating of over 4 stars!!! COME ON!! I remember randomly grabbing the first book in this series and devoured them all. It took forever for this book to come out, and when it did, it's like she just threw a bunch of crap in there with the intention of tying up loose ends and FAILED. For a series that I loved(and love) so much, I expected so much better from the 'finale.' I was extremely disappointed, to say the least.

I didn't like how this story ended! I understand that not everything ends just peachy but its still nice when it does in books. To me a happy ending is a nice little constant in books. I didn't want Catty to die or Jamina and Vanessa to forget. It's just frustrating that Vanessa's the only one left and she won't remember why everyone she loved is gone. There's my rant, that's all I have to say on it.

The Final Eclipse

In the 5th grade my friend and I just started playing the flute so we signed up for the school lessons. We wanted to be in the school band, so we went to all our lessons and the band teacher told us once we learned enough notes and we can play, then we could be in the band. We really wanted to be in the band with all our friends so we went to all the lessons and we practiced together after school at each others houses, and we never gave up. One day we went to our lesson and he

I'm so very sad this series is over. I can't imagine reading it back when it came out, and having to wait months upon months to get the next book. I devoured this entire series in less than 2 weeks!

I am so glad there was a 13th book, because it answered all the questions. (Except Maggie's baby. Seriously, WHY DIDN'T THEY EVER TALK ABOUT HER BABY? Surely whoever her baby was had to have been important, right?)

I was so saddened at the end of this book. I wasn't expecting all of the characters to

Recommends it for: reluctant reader, teen girl
This is still a good book for the reluctant reader, teen girl. This final book for the series felt a bit like the author was phoning it in, though. In fact, the author says she thought she was done, but her fans clamored for another one.

One of the things the girls always knew was that when they turned a certain age, they had to make a Choice. Either they would forget everything about being a goddess, or they wouldn't, but they would no longer be around, and what happens on the other side of that

AHH!! The very last one!! I looked for this book for years!! The author wasn't going to write this one!! I am so glad she did, or else we would have never known what would have happened!! The book before this leaves the ending completely open!! So many people asked her to write this book!! I, personally, am glad!!

I did not like this book at all. For one, it did not tie the loose ends!!! What happened to Maggie's baby??? Or what about Adamantis??? Who/what was the shadow at the end of the book??? Didn't they just kill the Atrox!!!?? I was hoping the book would have answered some questions and tied the loose ends.
I was very sad too see this book series finish. THis book was a great ending for all the books. Vanessa i feel you beucase u feel you would be by yaself becase serena decided too stay in the other world...

Toward the beginning of high school, possibly 9th grade, I read my very first "Daughters of the Moon" book. I read book two of the series first. Then I read the first second. I continued reading the series out of order, because I was interested in Serena and Vanessa's life but I didn't care too much for Catty's and I didn't like Jimena's character at all. (I ended up coming back and reading Catty's; however, I actually never read any of Jimena's books.) But even reading out of order and skipping ...more

This is the last book in a 13 book series for teenage girls. I've enjoyed the entire series and the message that Lynne Ewing has for all girls that we are each goddesses in our own right. I liked reading a series that advocates for girls to think before they act, while still capturing the angst that so many teens face.

This book and the previous one, The Becoming, are both the darkest books in the series. The endings to both books are bittersweet and left me feeling somewhere between nostalgic an

As a whole, I was not satisfied with the ending to the series. My biggest issue with the last book was that it was essentially the same plot as the previous book. In the twelfth book, Tianna must face being the Atrox's chosen as his bride. In the thirteen book, Vanessa must face being chosen as the Atrox's lover. These plots are different how? Ewing carries off the two SAME themes differently, but it's still the same plot.

Also, the conclusion to the Sons of the Dark books happens in here. Concl

I love this series. I love this book. I love this ending.

At first I wasn't thrilled that this book was in Vanessa's point of view. I don't particularly like Vanessa very much. But I see how fitting it is: start with Vanessa and end with Vanessa. This book surprised me. I totally thought The Becoming was the last book and then suddenly this was out and I had a little more story to look forward to.

I wish there had been a little more Serena and Stanton in this book, since they're my favorites. And

Unfortunately, this book was printed with pages 187-202 missing. Which unfortunately seems to have contained some important details. That said. a lot of the book just seems to try and tie up loose ends, and sometimes there seemed to not be enough to tie it smoothly. Truthfully, the missing pages ruined it most, and if those had been there, I might have been able to rate this a 3, mostly because this serious has been a part of my life for close to a decade, and I am only just now getting to ...more

This was a terrific ending to the series! I loved the series and was sad to see it end, but Lynne Ewing made it a spectacular finale to the series. I was a little saddened about the end, I mean, anyone who has been reading from the beginning may be shocked. I cried and thought about what I would do if that happened to me. Anyway, this is an amazing book and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good read and read the rest of the series!

Are you kidding me? First, I had no idea there was another book and that it was a finale. Well I did but had stopped reading after the last book, and found out there was this one. And wow did I read it as soon as I got it. You can tell its the final one. So much happens just wow and just wow. Really good read. Though it has other characters from the Sons series but you find what happens to them as well. Love this one and the series in general. Definitely give this a read.

This book was just... Bad. Vanessa is so unlike able and to have her try to act as savior was a stupid idea. The book takes off right where the previous one leaves off and to the authors credit is nonstop action. However, there wasn't a lot of thought put into how the series should reach its end. There was too many conveniences made. Again, it just read as lazy. Perhaps this book would be more appealing to the target audience but to me, it failed.
Book Thirteen The Final Eclipes: What a sad but happy ending i am not gonna give anything away other than it left me satified with the series but wanting more of Lynns writing and i am happy to announce she has more on the way and good thing about being a little behind lol i don't have to wait, I am going on to the Sons of the Dark series and then The sisters of Isis series. Pick up a book :)
