I'm going to express my feelings about Fate Succumbs by Tammy Blackwell without giving anything away. Trust me, this book deserves to be read without any spoilers. I don't want to be the one that ruins the whirlwind of twists that Ms. Blackwell throws at the reader. Sooooooo........

Ok, so for most of the book, I was:

Tammy, you knocked it out of the park! Need more exclamation marks… out of the park!!!!
Fate Succumbs is an engrossing, fast-paced, cleverly tied-up finale to a wonderful trilogy. In fact, it’s my favorite book of the three. After receiving the book as an e-arc, I thought I’d take a wee nose at it before I started work for the day. Well… that wee nose turned into me devouring the entire book in hours. As we catch up with Scout and Liam after his rescue of her in book two, we journey into a road-t

OH MY GOD!!! Its finally over and I am absolutely miserable. I was hooked to Scout’s story from the 1st page of the 1st book and Ms. Blackwell doesn’t disappoint in the finale. I tried to put off reading this book for as long as I could but then I finally caved. Even then I tried to make it last by reading it as slowly as was possible but then that was never going to work, not with the way the narrative progresses. You can’t help but get sucked in; I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. ...more
This book literally had me laughing out loud at every moment and crying at the moments that counted. The story continues on exactly where Time Mends ended, throwing Scout right into her destiny, with her grey wolf by her side. That grey wolf being Liam, Alex's older brother, and Mr Don't-Mess-With-Me-Or-I-Will-Grab-You-By-The-Throat-ALPHA...or just plan RAWR to me!! Don't get me wrong, I love Alex, but Liam is just what the doctor ordered...fill my script, I need to be medicated *wink wink*

I was lucky enough to get to read an advanced copy of this book within the last week and may I just say that you are all in for a fantastic ride. I wish I could tell you all about it BUT, I can't... and I won't... All I can tell you is "enjoy"...

Not good story telling. Not good development of the plot.

Some things annoyed me. For example, someone dies and then visits Scout in her dreams. More than once Scout asks a question about life after death and the visitor says if he reveals too much his ability to visit Scout will be revoked. Similarly when Scout asks a question of Joshua, he says it isn’t for you to know. The result: mystery or questions that don’t get answered.

Example of weak development. Scout is wearing a wig as a disguise. Sh

I'm always intrigued by people rating books before they are published. You could argue that they may have ARCs but I feel like that only applies 5% of the time.

Ugh, I hate to give this book three stars because everyone else rated it so highly but I'm not sure I could justify four stars. I liked this book and I like Tammy's writing. I will continue to read her books as I think she's a great storyteller. What caught me in this book is that things just happened kind of quickly and I was often left with the feeling, "Uh, did I miss something?!" I felt this way with the Liam situation, the Alpha fight, etc. I wanted more details/description/depth and ...more

Reading is like a road trip. On some, the journey is boring but the end destination makes it worth it. Others start out fun and exciting but by the tenth game of I Spy/20 Questions you’re willing to hitchhike just to get away from your co-passengers. And then there are the ones you want to do over and over and over again. This book is the kind I want to read over and over again.

I love Tammy Blackwall for a crap ton of reasons – for giving me Scout and Jase and Charlie and Alex and Liam;

I'm still reeling over the fact this series is actually over, and giddy with the thought of a brand new series coming in 2013, set within the same world. Tammy Blackwell you're my American Idol! Now on to serious thoughts. I was more than happy with the outcome of what quickly became my favorite of the Timber Wolves trilogy. Liam was the most compelling of all male hottie characters in book one for me, and more than lived up to my expectations in three. Scout became exactly who she needed to be. ...more

I've been impatiently waiting for the third book of the Timber Wolves Trilogy to "hit" the shelves. Yesterday I clicked on Buy with 1-click and devoured the book in basically one sitting.

The last book of a series is always hard. Saying goodbye to characters you have become invested in is bittersweet.

I give a 15 stars to this series.


I started this series yesterday and finished the last book a few minutes ago.

I have to say, when I started reading, I did like Alex and Charlie. Between those two, I couldn't decide who Scout should choose. I didn't really feel a connection with either, you know when you really, really start thinking them as a real person.
But then Alex died...

After finishing up the series I am surprised to say overall I like the series. I liked the main character and found myself laughing at the ridiculous comments she would make. But after the end of the first book I thought I was gonna pull my hair out after what happen to Alex. I was having one of the moments where I'm saying to myself "oh man, how am I so upset about someone who isn't real!" But man I liked Alex.
Of course in the third book I was happy at who she ended up with. I could of used a

Loved it! Fantastic! So sad to say goodbye to Scout and company. It was an emotional roller coaster for me. Fortunately, I didn't read this one in public, because I would have looked quite strange laughing out loud one minute and then sobbing the next. (Seriously, it's good.)

I love Ms. Blackwell's sense of humor. She's also really good at slipping in geek/cultural references without taking anything away from the main story. Never once in the three books was I able to predict what was going to h

Can't believe the series is done! I read Destiny Binds ages ago and came back to this series just recently, so I feel like I've had Scout and her gang on my mind for quite some time now. I was swooning and then nursing a broken heart after Destiny Binds, I cheered on a bad-ass Scout and got wrapped up in suspense of Time Mends, and with Fate Succumbs I feel like the characters have come full-circle and moved beyond the life they once had to a completely new adventure. While I will always be ...more
Actual Rating: 4.5 stars

I don't think I'm going to be able to write a very thoughtful review, so let's do some bullet points, shall we? I have to give this series HUGE props for the following:

- Awesome, awesome, AWESOME female lead and narrator. Seriously, Scout is now a favorite.

- The characters. Yes, Scout is a prime example, but just... all of them. This is character development done right, and you can tell the author cared a lot about her characters. Everyone changes because of the situation

An absolutely fantastic series. Great characters, great plot, great romance and werewolves, always a plus for me.

Scout is an awesome mc. I loved her after just a few pages, and she just got better throughout the book, her character grew so much. She looks odd. She has white, white blonde hair, extremely pale skin and eyes the colour of ice chips, which gets her a lot of negative attention. But this doesn't bother her, she takes it all in her stride and gets on with it. She's snarky and sarcasti
Holy cow. I didn’t think that this series could get any better than the first two books, but then this one blew them out of the water. There are so many amazing things that happen in this book that I could not put it down, bedtime be damned. In the span of three books, Scout went from a young girl completely ignorant to the world around her to a serious kick ass heroine. She was still unsure about things, but for the most part she took charge and stood her ground.

I loved the development of Liam.

I absolutely loved this series!!!!! This is one of my all time favorite series!! If you plan on reading it you have to read it in order and start with Destiny Binds first.
What I loved most about the book was the main charcter Scout. Her and Liam really made this last book complete. Scout was so funny with all her witt and one liners and not backing down from Liam and all the baggage he had to carry around. I found myself many times laughing out loud in this book. This whole series was such a pl
I love it.

This book was bittersweet. It was an awesome conclusion to an amazing trilogy. I wish this book went on forever. I could never get tired of these characters.

I cried. Yeah, and I'm not ashamed to say it. I just loved it so much.

This book had me laughing out loud one minute, grinning like an idiot the next. Then balling my eyes out 5 minutes later. I can honestly say this is one of my favorite trilogies. And my fave book out of the three. It helped mend my heart. It left me content.

Fate Succumbs is the conclusion of the Timber Wolves Trilogy.

Scout Donovan with the help of Liam (Alex’s older brother) is now on the run from the Alpha pack. They have ordered her death and she uncovers an evil plot that has been perpetrated by the Alpha female for over 2000 years. The Alpha pack is killing off all female shifters. It is blatant genocide of the female shifters due to an ancient belief and they must be stopped.

Fate Succumbs has it all …action packed, funny, deeply emotional, lo

This was a great conclusion to the Timber Wolves Trilogy! Sometimes shifter books are kind of creepy to me, but this one is one of the best I have read! Tammy Blackwell is an amazing author that will always be one of my favorite.

This is, of course, still told from Scout's point of view. I just love Scout. Her thoughts and the things she says just crack me up, and I was laughing throughout the book. She is one of my favorite characters ever. And her banter with the wonderful hottie know
