What an ending to remember!! WOW, I couldn't of asked for a better ending, though I REALLY wish it would of touched a little bit more on the after world, and how things are now that everything is all said and done. But nevertheless, this was another EPIC hit from Page Morgan. I'm starting to think this woman can write no wrong!!

BUT I JUST WANT ONE MORE BOOK!!! JUST ONE MORE PAGE MORGAN, PLEASE????????????????

An ARC of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts are my own.

This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.

Guys, if you haven't started this series yet, you are missing out on one of the most unique shifter stories out there. Forget that comparison to Lauren Kate in the synopsis up there. I liked those books when I didn't know what else was out there, but now I know better. Now I know that there are books like this out there. Books full of

LOVED.IT.SO.HARD.

This is one of those books that snuck up on me. I'm not a huge historical-anything fan because it involves keeping track of dates and timelines which for me, feels an awful lot like "mathing". (The mild form of dsylexia I have makes numbers a challenge sometimes.) BUT, when the audio for The Lovely and The Lost came up for review last spring, I took one look at that cover (the blue one), read the blurb, and decided to give it a shot. Because gargoyles and Paris.

The Dispossessed trilogy is officially one of my favourite YA trilogies. This trilogy has everything in it: supernatural, historical, paranormal, fantasy, romance, and kick butt feminist protagonists. This trilogy doesn't have a single POV, it somehow switches from one to the other, including the main protagonist Ingrid, her twin Grayson, her younger sister Gabby, as well as several other secondary characters (though at a minimum). Usually this would create confusion and you immediately like and ...more

What a great end to a great series! I love the net things and the idea of them pulling out the demon/angel blood, filtering it, and then putting human blood back. That sounds really gross now that I read it but it was brilliant. Trust me. I have such a soft spot for the gargoyles. Especially Luc but also Marco. I imagined the end a bit differently. Won't give any spoilers but let's just say the sad thing that happened was really tragic to me and I held out hope that something awesome would come ...more

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why so much POV changes?
Why skim through important encounters?
Why become so predicable at the end?
Why unnecessary endings of people?
Why so much action in so little words?
WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???????????????

And then I cried at the end...........

Disappointed that the series is at an end when I feel there is unanswered questions due to the kind of predictable ending. Also, Disappointment with the book as a whole. :

This series is seriously underrated. It's romantic, action-packed, well-written, with great characterizations and a brilliant & unique paranormal world. Oh, and did I say romantic? Oh well, let me say it again. It's SUPER swoon-tastic w/ a million sailing SHIPS.

I received this ARC from the author in a contest won on her blog, I was in no way compensated for this review.


I was positively ecstatic to have won Page Morgan's The Wondrous and the Wicked! Not only had I read The Lovely and the Lost as a wayy early ARC, but I was having a crummy week at the time of winning, so this definitely made me smile! And what a read it was! I loved it!

In the past few years, I have developed a love for gargoyles. No clue why. Think it was that I saw a gargoyle statue an

Page Morgan delivers an epic, action-packed and utterly riveting conclusion to her series with THE WONDROUS AND THE WICKED. It’s a story filled with nail-biting suspense, one that will keep readers on edge as they await Ingrid’s, Luc’s, Vander’s, Gabby’s, Nolan’s, Grayson’s and Marco’s fates, and one that builds toward a dramatic and incredibly climactic showdown that offers no guarantee of a victory for those characters readers have come to know and love.

Why the eff is this series for people who liked Fallen?
(I only read the first book to be fair)

Seriously, that book was the worst. Period. There was no way I could have possibly liked it.

Some differences:
- This series has plot.
- This series isn't about a girl chasing after two people.
- This series contains gargoyles.
- This series has ACTUAL plot. Not a poor excuse for one.
- The first book actually made my heart pound.
- This series has better covers (sorry, Fernanda, I'm still watching you on dA)

This series improved immensely from the first book to the last in the trilogy. Lots of action, a fast pace and by this stage, I love the characters that I wasn't even sure I liked after the first book. I seriously considered not picking up the second, but I'm so glad I did. This will go down as one of my favourite series now that I would definitely recommend.

Thank you, Edelweiss, for providing this book from Delacorte for review!

Ingrid is left in Paris with a different gargoyle presiding over her home. Her brother, Grayson, seems to have disappeared, when he's actually learning more about demon dust with Vander in order to fight off his hellhound instincts. Gabby is trapped in London with Rory, Nolan's cousin, and she insists on training to become an Alliance member, no matter what Nolan says. Meanwhile, Luc is separated from the Waverly family, and

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 16th May 2015:

RATING: 5 PAGE TURNING PARANORMAL STARS!

This is one of my favourite YA paranormal trilogies. I simply dig it so much. Alas it has now come to an end.

I will miss Luc and Ingrid, Gabby, Grayson, Nolan, Vander, Marco and the other sub characters.

The Beautiful and the Cursed had me sucked into Paris in the year 1899. The city with gargoyles, demons, the Alliance and gothic danger as we follow two brave sisters, their brother and a boy named Luc.

I was going to give 1 star, but i gave 2 stars, because the concept Page Morgan brought on the series were really nice! But i'm disappointed with the last book. First, i realized that Ingrid didn't deserve Luc! I still think, that it was really silly to try the love triangle between Luc, Ingrid and Vander (he is actually, the only character that i didn't like since the first book. Actually, he would match with Chelle. Both characters got on my nerves!). It bothers me, that all the time Ingrid ...more

Adventure, romance, demons, gargoyles, smart and strong heroines, dashing and humble heroes, 1900's Paris, apocalyptic underworld invasion...this book has it all!

This series deserves WAY more attention than it's getting. Such a great story and dynamic characters. It felt authentic--as far as the historical 1900's Paris aspects were concerned--but still super accessible. I can't help but compare this to Infernal Devices, and everything like bugged me about those books (cough--Tessa--cough) is abs

'The Wondrous and the Wicked' was...let me put it into a list:
1. Boring as hell for the first half? of the novel. I'm still not quite sure why I've continued to read this series despite my lack of interest in it and the general disappointment.
2. Not much better than the other instalments in the series.
3. Too dark for me. SOOOO much doom and gloom. People, gag me.
4. Too average, too normal, too much like other novels.
5. I really don't like ugly gargoyles who turn into attractive men. I find it we

The finale to the trilogy!! That was intense!

If you can believe it there was even MORE chaotic action than in the second book. Axia has come above ground and Paris is like hell unleashed on Earth. War has come.

The ending was almost exactly what I wanted and expected. I was totally cool with Grayson's fate tbh. Though that ending was great I wasn't all that satisfied because I was like "Wait what?? What about the Dispossessed? Luc's leadership??" I wanted more romance between Ingrid and Luc bu

This series is awfully clichéd, poorly written at times, and I suspect it plagiarized at least one TV show. It's also my guilty pleasure xD and that's my only explanation to why I read the three novels and one short story despite all their flaws.

This is an amazing book! Out of the whole series this is definitely my favorite. Reads will open this book and never know what's coming. I was in tears at the end and am utterly amazed by the amount of emotion Page was able to put into this book. I recommend it to everyone! It shows us the true meaning of love and family. Definitely in my Top 10 list!

This was the perfect finale to an amazing, unique series. There are not many gargoyle books out there, but this is one that deserves major credit. This entire series has been an absolute thrill ride full of twists and turns, and never knowing what to expect.

I'm the author of the YA Gothic thrillers THE BEAUTIFUL & THE CURSED, THE LOVELY & THE LOST, and THE WONDROUS & THE WICKED. I've been intrigued by les grotesques ever since I saw an old, black-and-white photograph of a Notre Dame gargoyle keeping watch over the city of Paris. I wanted to tell that gargoyle's story. Soon, the idea for The Dispossessed series was born.

Safe as a porcelain bowl wrapped in cotton linen and boxed up. It would be a lie to say she didn't want to feel safe, or that Nolan's worry didn't leave her feeling warm and even a bit precious. But it also left her feeling trapped, like an ornamental bird kept in a cage, its wings clipped.”
