SPOILERS!!!!!

In the 3rd installment, Secrets, James and Claire are finally on equal footing. They’ve come full circle. Claire and James begin their work with Omar. It’s a difficult road. With their teamwork they actually start to see him changing for the better.

The police come sniffing around in regards to Stephen and Brian. It’s interesting to see how Claire and James end up helping the investigation. At first it seemed they were busted, that the police had fi

What a fabulous ending to an kickass trilogy! Loved the surprise wedding! Thought that was a nice touch. I have to say that the twists and turns kept me on edge and I wasn’t sure how this story was going to end. I AM NOT DOING SPOILERS!!
I do have to say this. I am in LOVE with Lucas. Something sexy about an Elven vampire that can make a girl do anything. YUM! Henry is a fine specimen as well. This clan draws you in and forms a connection that lasts well beyond the last page.

Excellent conclusion to the Empath Trilogy, and by far my favorite of them all. I really enjoyed the action scenes, and I must say, I enjoyed the fact that Claire finally started to have fun in this book. We saw much more personality from her. This is a great series, it is much more realistically portrayed than some vampire books (Twilight, anyone?). I highly recommend this to anyone looking to get into this type of book, which says a lot because I don't normally read vampires or young adult (so ...more

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.


First let me say that I am so glad that Claire met Stephen and he knew about her ability right off and knew that she needed help and introduced her to James. With James Claire learned a lot. She not only learnt how to control her abilities she got to feel what it was like to have someone love you so much that they would give their life for each other. They would do anything and everything to save not only each other but the

Really, where to start?? This book took me a few days to really be able to finish it. I'd read a little and then have to leave it and come back.This sure doesn't feel like the end of a series. This whole book was confusing. This edition I read, not just published once, but twice. That is ridiculous. This was horrible. There were fragmented sentences throughout the book. As in, you would be reading and then BAM! A part of a sentence is just sitting there in the middle of nowhere or at the end of ...more

So sad the series is over. Claire is such a badass. This is one series I really wish would continue.

Secrets is the final installment of the Empath trilogy.

Claire and her new family have faced many foes in the two previous books and this one is no different.

James and Claire have decided to get married and must decide if Claire will turn or if she will stay human. They have two major fears one that James will lose touch with his humanity if she turns and the other is that their bond will be brok

**4 star rating**

The Court with their excellent timing, took it upon themselves to call on James and Claire right after their big moment to run an “errand”. Let me tell you, Claire just gets more bad-ass with each book.

What I liked:

•The wedding – I absolutely loved the surprise wedding James planned. It was just such a sweet gesture I found myself melting

•The happy ending – It was satisfying and a great conclusion to the trilogy

•So much more that I am unable to explain without spoiling it!

I really enjoyed this series. It was a creative story line that kept me engaged throughout the 3 books. There were some parts where I had to skim read Claire's inner monologue. She tended to ramble about the same things over and over. I do have one complaint on the book, and really with the whole YA genre. I am tired of reading about insecure girls who just can't believe the amazing guy fell in love with them because they are so plain and ordinary blah blah blah. For once, I would like to read a ...more

The third instalment in the Empath series was nothing short of breath-taking. As the book progressed, my interest grew. Full of murder, espionage, political maneuvering, more “turning”, magick, brutality, romance, matchmaking, and more, it was gripping, in both its pace and content.

It was exciting to watch Claire mature and really grow into her own, not to mention go head-to-head with some scary characters. I was delighted to see the gloves off and the swords out. To see the laws and politics of

This third book in the trilogy reflected a lot of growth from the first book. The writer took her time more in developing relationships... although the easily ignited insecurities of James and Claire annoyed me. The overall story felt incomplete with Daemon still being out there and the undisclosed Master of the giant leopard... but the rest of the story lines were tied up well enough. By the end both James and Claire were fleshed out enough to connect the reader to them more completely. Overall ...more

So many publishing errors

I love the story line but almost had to give up on the series due to so many cut off sentences! mid sentence it would just stop be blank have a couple words on the next line that made no structural sense then be blank again. I hope there are more books to the series but hope the author and editors will take extra care before releasing the digital version. as others have said it probably not their fault but it should be their responsibility to make sure the final product

Secrets a title well played! As romance comes full circle a darkness blooms and threatens the very soul of this book. A war is about to implode and an evil like any other is leading the pack. As answers were sought questions replaced darkness invades in hopes that light of a sort can save the coming days. I found that this book opens it pages to the answers I needed as I pleaded for a triumph where one may not expect it to be found. This where I will leave you telling you all answers are found s ...more

I loved this book and the rest of the trilogy. What a great writer H K Savage is. I fell in love with the authors style of writing and truly felt like I was right there with the characters. The characters have a lot of depth, and the storyline is flowing and full. I read the entire series in only a few days. After I started it I wasn't able to put it down. Recommended for anyone who likes the supernatural romance stories.

Like some have said, I thinnk that this is what Twilight should have been. A great ending to a great series, leaving an open to continue the story (I hope!).
The ONE downside. The e-book had so many issues and made me so frustrated. I cannot tell you how many times a paragraph or sentence would come up as just jumbled words. That's careless. But I blame the publisher for that.
The book itself is wonderful and I hope Savage continues to grow in her popularity.

This story had a fabulous ending given the amount of action the characters has been put through. It was also written in such a way that HK Savage ever wanted to come back to it and spin off another series with other characters it could work. Loved this trilogy and can't wait to read more from this author over time.

I've enjoyed the books, great story line. Although I am a little exhausted. Non stop bad guys always popping up. The kindle edition from amazon has tons of mistakes. In some areas it seems like someone cut and paste sentences in random places, a little confusing. Oh and one more thing, Henry is supposed to have a coven of vampires but they are never used.

I liked the ending to this trilogy, but I can't help feeling like I might have missed something important. There was a lot of missing info. Not just a word here or there, but whole sentences and paragraphs. I am disappointed with the editing on this. Did anyone even read this first?
So I give the story a 4(I think) and the book a 2, therefore overall a 3.

This book by far was the best of the three. Although there were some editing issues with the kindle edition. It felt like some sentences were missing and out of order to the paragraphs. Other than that, I was able to follow pretty well.

Another hit for HK Savage

Although the storyline in this, the third of the trilogy, was slower than the first two, the author does not disappoint her readers. We are still swept up in this fantasy love story that has the action and thrills to keep the pages turning.

The perfect closure to the trilogy only complaint is I wish there was another book. Love Henry, James, Claire, the cats, and of coarse Lucas.

HK lives in the frozen hinterlands of the far North. The long, cold months provide ample opportunity to hunker down with her computer and create adventures far more enticing than scraping ice and getting frostbite.

Between books HK reads voraciously. Anything with a good plot and compelling characters are her broad parameters. One is as likely to catch her with a copy of Don Quixote as with the la
