Ok, totally completely freaking loved this series and hate, hate, HATE that it's over. I'm extremely happy that it looks like Eli and Nicole are going to get back together. I always liked him best for her even when he was being evil. And may I say thank friggin' God that Jer stopped being a total pussy and finally admitted him and Holly were mean't to be together. It's sad that Holly's gonna be blind and stuck on that freaky council now forever :-P
And I wanna ask anybody who reads this review, i

That's pretty much my reaction to this whole book. Not only is it crazy long, but it's also just plain crazy. A lot of things just didn't make sense, especially the whole Blind Justices of Olympus deus ex machina crap that just came out of nowhere.

Then there was the final battle which had the male lead wearing a cat suit. No, just no. Men weren't ever meant to wear those. Ever. If Quinto can't pull it off, neither can anyone else.

The flashbacks to Medieval Times needed to be more straight forwar
OK,here is . . . if you read the finale I don't know that your life will be any better for it. If you skip it, I am sure you won't walk around with a hole in your soul. The first 4 books were so dark and complex, I was hoping the final would bring everything together including our star crossed lvoers. Well, the authors tossed in Christian issues and myths and ressurecting people . . . that honestly one character did not need to be resurrected. I suppose those things are fine if there is a real r ...more
Six years after the cliff-hanger ending of 'Spellbound', the authors complete the series with Resurrection. There is more bouncing about the globe (and through time) by various folk searching for other folk, more demons, more revelations, more fireballs, more death and destruction, and some rather dubious returns from the grave. The authors also wove into the story the olde English ballad, Scarborough Fair, which made me want to go burn my Simon & Garfunkle CD. Suffice to say it really didn' ...more
Ever since I read Wicked two years ago, I've been a fan of this series. It may not be every one's cup of tea, and the magic in these books are nothing like Harry Potter, quiet the opposite in fact, filled with darkness and evil, and you never quiet know which side everyone is on....But that's one of the things I enjoy so much about this series.

And Wicked: Resurrection was anything but a disappoint, a fitting conclusion to the series. After having the last two books leaving you hanging, wanting m
Resurrection is the fifth and final book in the Wicked series, and I have to say it was a fitting end to a very wild ride.

Just as Legacy and Spellbound built on the world of Witch and Curse , Resurrection builds on the story set up by the previous novels, finishing it off with a bang. I've often read series before where I felt dissatisfied with the ending for various reasons, or kept wanting to know what happened afterwards. This didn't happen with Resurrection - I felt everything was all tied

This book was awful and I was pretty relieved to have finished it, bringing to an end the 1000 page + saga.

I have said before that the previous books were badly written, and that some of the plot points were pretty confusing. In this book they throw time travel and teleportation into the mix and it's just impossible to follow in many places. It's been very badly edited and since this book is mainly action that's a big problem.

Story-wise this is the most exciting of all 5 of the books, with the m
It was a race to the finish...the descriptions in the book were great and I could see every battle play out...the series started out strange for me, but it ended well. I like endings that are tied up in little packages with a bow and then gifted to the reader. Perfect ending to a tumultuous series. I would only recommend if you can see it through to the end.
When I read the final book to the Wicked series, I was... shocked. It read as if the authors just mash things together they thought THEIR fans would like. The plot looses its essence. I skipped a fair few pages reading this. I NEVER EVER do that to other books in this series.

But I like the fact that I get to see Eli grow as a character.

I'm just going to keep this short. I don't get the whole giant God and Goddess thing. The whole time the Cahors and Devereaux have a bloody feud is because of the

i like how this book ended with every body happy except with Holly because she ended up blind and in the Temple of Justice but being blind comes with it. Nicole is sad that Philippe gave up his live but now she has Eli also with her son Owen's, Amanda is happy with Tommy, Eve and Ann-Louise are really sisters and also Eve and Derek together. Richard and Pablo going on a fishing trip son and father time. Kari and Sasha are dead. At the end of the book the Temple of Justice gave Holly and Jer a ch ...more

Finishing this book is a relief, not because I cared deeply for the characters fates, but rather because it means I am done with this frustrating and confusing series. The ideas for the series gave the novels good potential, however, the books themselves are written more as an early draft than as a published novel. Ideas are introduced that are never addressed again, including major foreshadowing for things that do not happen, leaving the reader confused and waiting for characters to make great ...more

Resurrection is the fifth novel in the Wicked series. Check out my reviews on Wicked and Wicked 2.

Resurrection was a satisfying ending to the Wicked series. At the end of the last novel Spellbound, I was left breathless, and shocked, at the cliffhanger. So I was even more surprised when the cliffhanger wasn't even acknowledged until about 90 pages in, and even then, the same character was still the only one with that knowledge.

More surprises fill the pages, as well as prophecies regarding the Ca
Marissa Novels On The Run
WOW!!! This was a very impressive series from Nancy & Debbie. They have certainly initiated me into a wider and more knowledgeable world of witches and warlocks. They gave me understanding of the world of Covens that I had not read before. Nancy & Debbie also delved on the more dark side of witchcraft in this series....It was refreshing to read a lead character dealing "with the devil" in order to save her own coven - bit by bit selling of parts of her soul each time. Though don't be foo ...more
Resurrection, the awaited finale to the series Wicked, which was written by Nancy Holder and Debbie Viguié, is an amazing book. This book is amazing because it is a mix of romance, betrayal and action. The romance is portrayed through the lives of the star-crossed lovers, Holly and Jer. As their love for each other thickens, so does the space between them. Jer is held captive by his brother on a hidden island, while Holly is fulfilling her destiny as the greatest power. While Jer believes his li ...more

Resurrection by Nancy Holder and Debbie Vigui was an amazing read. It was better then the first one, and the second. Nancy Holder has a way of drawing you in, and taking you to a different world.

In this book you go off with all the sisters of the lily and see what there are struggling to face to save there family's life. Holly sacrifices lots so the ones she loves can be safe, but when the worst happens and Holly can interfere with what is to happen, will they make it. When the balance of good a
This is the second time I've read this book, and I feel absolutely burned out.

Not to say that I did not enjoy the series. Not in the least. I love this series, though not many people know it or like it much. I bought Wicked: Witch and Curse from Barnes and Noble a few years ago and was shocked, at first. It was nothing like what the blurb on the back had me imagine. I was expecting the usual YA teenage romance, and some cheesy magical nonsense.

Oh. My. Goddess.

I was wrong.

The book was so dark
As seen at

I enjoyed the novel Resurrection, the conclusion to the Wicked series. But while reading the novel I noticed that there were an abundance of characters. Most of these characters had been introduced in the previous novels. But, honestly, I've heard that you're not supposed to focus on more than eight or so characters. There were twenty-seven major characters. I know this because I went through after reading the novel to count how many characters were lis
"Call me Dr.Frankenstein" Says Nigel Temer. He may as well be. He brings Kari Hardwicke and the cats back to life. Well, to be honest I do not really like the whole Zombie introduction but it helps with the ending of the book. Owen kind of freaks me out and Phillipe dies. (Yes, I was crying at this point) But Merlin is sent away and order is restored and Holly and Jer finally get together. I love Tommy and Amanda. However, in this book I have to ship Nicole and Eli...

I really started hating characters but that is usual for me. I feel great about finishing the series and do not regret doing so. It was nice and complex. The last book is a little more toned down but as a whole the wicked series is definite worth a read if you are into a story with clearly flawed characters and not-so-perfect endings.
I have to say, I have never been in love with this series, even from the beginning. However, this book was the worst of them all. In the entire series, there was little character development probably because the authors kept adding more and more to the plot. I think this series could have been really great. It just needed a little more focus and character development so that the reader could really connect to the characters. I do like how this is not your typical paranormal YA book these days th ...more
Ok totally freaking loved this series and hate that it's over. Excatic that it looks like Eli and Nicole are gonna get back together. I always liked him best even when he was bad. And may I say thank God Jer finally stopped being a baby and admitted he and Holly were meant to be. It's kinda sad that she's stuck on that council now and she's blind forever. Oh well. I just wanna ask something of anybody who reads this, if back in the old time of Isabeau and Jean, why was there also an old version ...more

This 5th book in the series is the finale... right at first, I didn't see the plot twists coming, but when they did, they made sense! Very exciting & kind of sad in the end to see who all dies, but I guess that's the nature of the series, a LOT of deaths....
I thought this book was a little better than the others in the series. It wasn't as boring, and it has some really good elements. There are some nice twists I didn't see coming, but also some you guess right away.

The ending was in my opinion too rushed - like the author just wanted to get it over with - SLAM! That irritated me a bit, but others will like it I believe.

There were a couple of things, where I never got, what it was about. (Maybe I just didn't read between the lines? I'm not sure.) I

Book Five, Resurrection, honestly there are so many back-stories, spells, possessions, and rescues that you will barely have time to catch your breath. I do warn you, if you don't enjoy a lot of detail or fanciful exploits this is not for you! I would like to take a moment to focus on the beautiful continuity in the use of poetic introduction for every chapter. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the mental pictures depicted, I was impressed with the way these poems placement enhanced the look of th ...more
Resurrection was quite a disappointing end to a good series. The story was all over the map, introducing new characters and elements that weren't necessary. Phrases were repeated needlessly (Ex. Bombay, known as Mumbai...) and the Deveraux/Cahors feud was transformed into a religious war. The story was fast-paced and action packed like an episode of an action series on television and it felt like this was a ploy to take the reader's attention away from the bad plot and convoluted melding of beli ...more
I really expected more out of the finale of this series. I was glad some of the questions got answered, but there comes a time when you have to say "Enough is enough" to the amount of "main" characters there are. There must have been at least a dozen. It sort of becomes difficult to keep things in order.

And I'll say this: I've always thought time travel was cool, but this was really hard to follow. There were things that were changed and I'm like, "Whoa. Slow down. What just happened?"

I don't wa

The final book in the series, Resurrection does not disappoint. It wraps up the entire series in a suspense filled adventure.
Who's the baby daddy? That was my stupid question the entire book.. but true. Poor Holly has to go through so many horrible things just like the rest of them. And the soul mate ancestors trying to take over their body surely didn't help that cause. Beautiful beautiful story plot and moral. I probably got the moral wrong but this is what it told me: "In the end God is controller of all things." And I loved it. And i actually am satisfied with the ending. I guess because it's much deserved and is ...more
