Well, the series comes to an end....or does it?

I am jumping for joy that Ms. Casey decided to pick this series back up and I can't wait to get to the next one.

I want to see what happens with Ben and if he decides to sing a different tune.

Shit, just give me all the characters back again plus add in a red dragon to complete the story.

This is a bitter sweet review for me, while I'm glad with how bad ass Portal Guardians ended.. I don't want to stop reading about Jayne, Spike, Tim, Tony, Jared, and all of the rest of the Fae in the Here and Now. I will miss demon wieners, spider nakies, Pixie butt dust, and sexy incubus smiles. I will never forget Jayne's mad hair cutting skill, nor how wonderful it feels to hug a tree! I have laughed, cried, and cried laughing during this series and the predecessor. I truly wish I could share ...more

I will never tire of reading Elle Casey's books! Her writing style is one of a kind this series was amazing start to finish . Finish.. sigh... So sad to see it end . I have been so in touch with the characters . Cheering for them and laughing at some. Adventure, comedy, life lessons... All you could ever want in a book and so much more!

I must say I was a bit skeptical about this series, but I am really enjoying it. This book makes me laugh every time I pick it up. I love that it has comedy mixed in with the action and fantasy. Its a nice touch. Yes Jayne has some very colorful language, but she does it in a comical way.

I thought I wouldnt be happy for her and Spike, but I have grown to accept their relationship. I will always want her to be with Chase, but I am glad that she is happy. I have to be honest

I couldn't choose between 3 or 4 stars. I choose 4 because this has been an awesome series! But I am so not happy with the end!!! There was this big build up and then it was over! A few explanations but not nearly enough. Elle, I am a huge fan and I was impatiently waiting for this book but do not let our selfishness disrupt your writing. Next time take as much time as you need to write! But once again this will definitely be one of my all time favorite series (and yes I am already waiting for t ...more

Hmm the book skipped a lot of explanation near the end, like why Torrie's not to blame but Leck is... and who tf is Heryon? Very confused. I even read through the last bit again to see if I was missing anything.

Elle Casey's story telling is... WOW! I had soooooo much fun reading this series (that i finished it in 2days).
Oh the twist and turn of the story you wont know it until it hit you fast and hard... its like a whirlwind reading it.
I wanted to be sad that their story ends here (i hope not) but i cant be sad when i had so much fun. Thank you Ms. Casey for your wonderful books.

Spoiler alert!

So to summarize the series...

And now more questions that will never be answered!

WTF happened to Torrie??? Did they really forgave him for trying to rape Jayne and ending the world? Jayne said at the end that the thing that happened to her mother was Leck's fault. How??? Did he made Torrie do it? How? Did he possessed Torrie? Can you possess a demon? HOW THE FUCK DID LECK DO IT AND BLAMED ON TORRIE? If all that Torrie wished was to be free, why all the "I'll bed you and make a baby to rule the world" ? An

I just finished the 7 book series, of Jayne and her new life as Fae. A great read, a page turner. I found myself on a few nights, getting bonked in the nose with my Kindle from staying up too late trying to read just a little bit more.

Sometimes I giggle, snicker, or chuckle with a book, but this series, there were many times, I laughed out loud and had to wait a few moments to recover before reading further.

For a Young Adult Book, it surprised me! I am impressed with the detail and depth of the

The last of the series, Clash of the Otherworlds, just didn't have the punch that the first 3 did, for me at least. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn't one that I couldn't put down as those first 3 had been. I was happy to see the conclusion so that I wouldn't wonder what happened to Janyne, Spike, Ben and the others.
I still think Elle Casey is an AMAZING author, and am one of her biggest fans. I am now reading one of her other series and am again totally enthralled, so I have to tell you that as
This book was much more memorable than the one before it, but not amazing.

SPOILERS: Highlights included closure with Chase the angel, Ben getting hitched to a dragon in heaven, Jayne realizing Spike's the man for her and that she can be with him, Jayne saving the day in both heaven and hell, Jayne hooking up with the dragon in hell (not in a nasty way - get your mind out of the gutter!), Samantha turning out to be a good guy, how the whole crazy problem started in the first place, and a wedding

Willy, Willy. That was a bit of a surprise. Tim's family rocks!
Loved the whole Clash of the Otherworlds series (and the War of the Fae, too)! Portal Guardians was fantastic, once again! About 90% of the way in, I wondered how Elle Casey would tie a bow around it... Part of me thought "too many loose ends. She can't do it." Another side of my brain said "I hope she doesn't, because then she'll have to add another installment!"
To her credit, she wrapped it up, nicely! On the other hand.... much

This was bittersweet. I loved this entire series and I am a HUGE fan of Elle Casey. I was so glad that Jayne ended up with the guy I always wanted her to be with! I do feel like it ended sort of suddenly and there could have been more details. I am chomping at the bits to get a hold of the epilogue! I will certainly miss visiting with Jayne, Spike, Tim, Tony, Chase and the rest of the gang. I will certainly miss the humor, pixie farts and spider nakies! This series was such a joy to read!

It's over!!!! well.... I thought it was over, but then the last page says there are 3 more to the series! lol

However!!! how much more of Jayne swearing, Tim farting, Spike loving, Chase not talking, Finn speaking, Becky disappearing, Sam scowling and, and Meetings.... Can I Take??????

Nice last installment of these 7 books however. The very end was a bit rushed, these actions could have been spread between this book and the one before (which was lacking of..) but it has been a fun ad

This is my favorite book of the clash of the otherworlds....I loved war of the fae series and clash of the otherworlds, BUT Jayne Blackthorne finally puts all the pieces together in this one and kicks some serious ass. LOL

This was an exceptional book! Clash of the Otherworlds along with it's predecessor series War of the Fae are now my favorite fantasy series. This book was just so good! All of my questions were answered and all of my favorite characters ended exactly where they should and with who they should. One thing I don't like sometimes in a book, especially a series is when they end it right after the final battle and the good guys walk into the sunset or something. I like to know how everyone is doing af ...more

Jayne and her fae friends will be missed! This was an epic ending to two wonderful series'. This book had a lot of loose ends to tie up, and I wasn't sure if Elle could do it in one book, but the master has accomplished the impossible... wonderfully done!

Thinking back to the very beginning of the War of the Fae series, I've realized Jayne has come a long way. She's always been awesome, but now she has grown into an awesome leader with an even bigger heart. Despite all of her colorful language (w

Great book. It finally finished off the story and answered the nagging questions that had been hanging around the last several books. The writing was good, the characters awesome (especially Jayne), and of course the story was hilarious, happy, and sad all at the same time. Glad everything worked out in the end though; and I'm glad I finally realized how much this series really is about grey areas and grey characters. I was glad so many of them seemed to have found their way by the end though. N ...more

Book 7 picks up immediately from 6 - every book ends in a cliffhanger except this one. Once more Jayne is denied and Jayne does as Jayne will. She can't understand why some people may not like that because her character hasn't grown! She's still the bossy, immature 17 year old acting as if she is 12. I was really disappointed when Becky tricked her so well, I was hoping she was telling the truth. I'm not surprised by any of the "twists" anymore, I just want the fae world safe. There is some defi ...more

I was disappointed by this final book and kinda feel I should rate it lower than four stars but I just can't bring myself to. I adored this series (and the war of the fae quartet preceding it): Elle Casey's characters are fantastic and the touch of humor worked very well. Those two winning factors are not lost in this final installment. BUT. Loose ends were left, a large proportion of the back story explanations didn't make sense to me and the epilogue was a pitiful wrap-up. It felt rushed and t ...more

I seriously think this story is one that I would never get tired of reading. their world, adventures, relationships, friendships, all of it is what made this series hands down probably one of my favorite reads. I'm sincerely going to miss Jayne and Elle Casey couldn't have written a better heroine.

A fitting end

This seems like a good ending to the series. All the mysteries get solved. Just about everyone gets at or near a happily ever after.

I see how this series could continue, but I appreciate that all the major story lines finally got resolution after 7 books

I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Jayne & Spike. He's always been this goof in the background. It would have been nice to see more of how they changed around each other, or how his flirting evolved on
