Well for one Chloe didn't die, *tantrum* *stomps feet* not faire!
I was so ready to read about her funeral being arranged and all that.
So yeah could say that was a set back, but that's ok because there's always book 6 right?

Yeah I'm still as much in love with Gage as ever.... But Marshall is definitely growing on me and might have won a piece of my heart, cute.
I didn't realize this series could get any worse, but this book proved me wrong. Then again, I am the sucker who keeps giving this author my money to read books that I know are awful. I have no idea why I am doing it, other than that I am a masochist who has to finish series that I start.

***** SPOILERS BELOW ******

(view spoiler)
WOW. . .This book was amazing!! It was kind of all fan friendly, because it seemed to have the perfect mix of Logan and Gage. SOO glad Logan isnt evil after all, and still same old Logan =)
Really awesome installment to the Celestra series, cant wait for the next one! Already craving for more teasers from Ethereal's FB page =)
I have never been a huge fan of the Celestra series, but I have noticed that each book has gotten consistently better. The story line has interested me a bit, and I've wanted to unlock the mystery of exactly how everyone on this crazy island relates to one another and will ultimately stand in the big final battle that has been hinted at along the way. So I have continued reading in this series. All I can say is . . . what happened in this latest book? All of the growth in writing that I noticed ...more
I'm going to try and get this out without sounding too mean because I love Addison Moore. She has such a great imagination and a way with words but this book was definitely my least favorite of the series and I'm going to tell you why.

As with the other 4 books, this one was a little hard to follow at times and like other reviews have said, it was a little repetitive. I felt like the story didn't really go anywhere and it only made me annoyed with Skyla. She kept kissing Marshall and Logan and w

Why does this book have 4.5 stars?

This is yet another series that I have been coaxed into beginning based on one of Amazon's .99 cent Kindle book deals. I even read a few reviews on Good Reads first, but did not heed the warnings, thinking "But its only .99 cents! How bad could it be for a buck?" Little did I know I was sealing my own fate, and forcing my hand to embark on a 5 book journey of frustration and annoyance. My first mistake was thinking that if I read the first book, and found it shi
I loved the 4 previous books and really looked forward to reading the fifth. I must say, however, that I was pretty disappointed in this book. I had a really hard time getting into it, which I thought was odd since I devoured the other 4 by reading them all within 2 days. I found this book to be all over the place. More Chloe drama that never ends. So much lying to Gage it's sickening, Logan is a back stabbing maniac, and Marshall... UGH! And the end? What the hell? Not a big fan of this one. Sk ...more

Team Gage!!
One Down, Two Left Standing

One down and now there are two are left. Between Gage and Logan, Skyla can only pick one to let live and has she made the choice already. In this book, you will want to know what will happen next in her life. Will she follow her heart and let true love in. Her actions always speak louder than her words or thoughts. She says yes she love one but her thoughts always turn to the other two. She has always ran to one when she is in trouble and she will defend him even if it

I had to go away and think a while before I made any comments about this book...

Book 5 was just as thrilling and fast paced as the previous books. However, It was the final straw and I can't read the series anymore. So I'm abandoning ship! Argh. Like in book 4 I am so over every second or third page being about Skyla and Gage almost having sex. Or Skyla thinking about having sex with Gage. This book seem to get worse, with Skyla whoring herself out to everyone it seemed.

I was so over it from b
Again, I found myself submerged in the life of Skyla Messenger, and again, I was not able to put my kindle down and come up for air!!! What is it about the Celestra series that has me so addicted? I feel like I am withdrawling now that I am finished reading Vex and I desperatly need to know when I can get my next fix.

Vex starts exactly where Wicked left off. Skyla has been betrayed by her ex-boyfriend-turned-Countenance, Logan. Gage, her current boyfriend and Logan's cousin, is still under her
Celeste’s Review: This story jumps immediately into action as it picks up where the cliff hanger ending of Wicked left off. For that I was glad, but that situation got resolved and we were onto the next. This book was more of the same wild and crazy action. Skyla and Gage continuously pledge their love to each other, but there is still some kind of a pull with Logan, and we also can’t leave out our favorite sector, Marshall, who Skyla seems to trust less, which I was sad about. I really like him ...more
Maybe I'm simple-minded but I factor in two things when deciding if I like a book...

First, can I see the characters as if they are real people? Kind of a funny question this time...I moved to Washington (not too far from Seattle) my junior year of high school. Also, I was a bratty blonde cheerleader who could never pick only one boy and who was constantly doing stupid things that made people scratch their heads in disbelief. I was always in trouble and sneaking out of the house. And, the dark ha

I read a few reviews last night as I was buying this book, and I was confused to see some were upset, but now I get it. At first I was Team Logan, then switched to Team Gage, and through the first 4 books, I went back and forth, but now.... (****SEMI-SPOILERS****)I'm Team NO ONE. I don't think Skyla actually deserves either of them because she did get pretty close to slutty in this book, without actually losing her virginity. I get it, I know there was a reason for most of it, I just think the f ...more
Jen*The Geeky Book Gal*
This series is a guilty pleasure for me. The synopsis reads like so many other YA paranormal novels that are out today, but the way Addison Moore writes, you become drawn in to Skyla's world and really start to care about the characters and what happens to them.

I'm still a little annoyed at Skyla for all the relationships she develops with all the men in the story. It seems like at one time or another she's in a compromising position with one of the following:Ethan, Marshall, Gage or Logan. The

I do not know whether to like or hate this book. For one thing, Addison Moore does know how to tell a griping story. As usual, there are funny episodes, romantic ones too but I must say that it's exhausting to follow the love triangle between Logan, Gage and Skyla. Several travels back and forth in time in this book gets a little confusing, but as always with this series, before I start complaining mentally about the convoluted plot, something will crop up to keep me reading on.

It is difficult
3.5 stars

I have enjoyed this series immensely. I think this book is probably my least favorite in the series though. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but like other reviewers have said, some parts are hard to follow. I feel like we're getting to the point where the same thing keeps happening over and over. I think it's time to come to a conclusion, or you're going to lose me.

This book does end in a cliffhanger and I gotta say, I didn't see that one coming! Luckily Addison Moore pushes these bo
Homestly these books just keep getting better and better there were some hillarious lines in this book that really had me laughing out loud like a crazy person in public places . I really enjoy Skylas character she has really come into her own as the series has progressed I am still rooting for Logan even after all his "secrets" dont get me wrong Gage is great too it does make it hard to pick Tad really has some great lines in this book makes you almost feel bad for him lol off to read Expel rea ...more
My Bookbag by Karen
“Sometimes duplicity and treason are markers of the enemy, and sometimes, the failed intention of a masterful ally.”

Vex is an interesting study in behaviors and what motivates those behaviors. To what lengths will one go in order to protect the ones they love? Or to lay claim to a love that belongs to another?

In this book, trust is a malleable thing, as are feelings and intentions. Duplicity is not always a form of evil, but it is duplicity nonetheless. It seems that Vex is an appropriate name f
Can Skyla solve the mystery that Chloe has hanging over everyone's heads? And does she stay with her proclaimed true love Gage or does she go back to her love Logan?

Serious Sexual tension. Not for younger teens!

Addison, has a wonderful way with words. She leaves you wanting more and fills in any space you might have not thought of. Can't wait to read book 6! In my book she is a Top author.
Rachel Householder
Finish it already!

I loved the first two books in this series, but now I just want it to end.

Great characters, great take on fallen angels, love the time travel angle. Would love to read more by the author, but I'm afraid to commit to any uncompleted series for fear I get stuck in a 7 book arc again.

Worth a start, but wait till it's finished!
I hate to stop reading book series, but after this book I'm definitively going to, I don't know if this series can get any worse, it would have been a good story for 3-4 books or less, but please! I can't believe she's making hell knows how many more just by filling them with nonsense, leave it to a soap opera not a book.
I read all the books up to this point but just could not go any further. I only read half of this one before I had to move on.
This book was eating my brain with all of it's strange twits and turns. I was lost half the time wondering what was going on. This series started out pretty well but has only gone downhill.
Kelli Kavinsky
I had read all the books up to this one and finally had to say enough. It's just too long of a story. Too drawn out and too much of back and forth. I got so sick of it not really getting anywhere that I couldn't be pulled back into the story to want to finish any more books.
Jenn Lambert
Frustrated with how things r so caty, but I guess that's the way it is in hs. Thought for this book...if Chloe is so bent on keeping Skyla/Gage apart, then y can't she? She seems to have Gage wrapped.
Gina Clabo (Look at that Book!!!!)
Great Series

Going on my 6th book in this series although it's a long series this is a great story and the love confusions are just as real in life as well in fiction of people's lives...Now I won't lie sometimes the story drones on a little to long but over all I would recommend to all....I do not like giving any hints because I would like people to experience the book in their own way...Everyone reads a book differently and their opinions are all different... hints (Book club's, blogs, and Good
Another "can't put it down" book. The end was slightly confusing to say the least but I am sure the next book will make sense of it. onto book six!!!
Another amazing cleverly woven cliff hangers from Addison Moore!! I couldn't put it down and highly recommend this entire series to anyone!!
Well this was a long book and so much has happened!!! First off this whole foursome is tiring me out. And Skyla being a constant love sick idiot is pissing me off. I get it, she cares for Gage and Logan and even Marshall here and there and I understand she feels in all her teen glory that Chole is ruining her life, but really, just because the girl is evil Skyla you go and make a deal with marshall that he can have your body for a night just to get rid of Chole from your School! How the hell doe ...more
