Start your review of Breaker (Ondine Quartet, #4)
Reading Breaker was a simply mind-blowing experience.

Every word felt like it had been placed on the page with care, with purpose...and with a dash of magic. Each sentence was another perfectly crafted puzzle piece that slid into its proper place to create the full picture.

This whole series, since its stunning beginning in Whirl, has been building towards that full picture, that final image. Bit by bit Emma Raveling has revealed Kendra's destiny to us readers throughout the series, & Breaker is

Endings are rarely easy, especially the ending of a beloved series. As readers, when we reach the ending of a series we love, we go through all the emotions: excitement, anticipation, fear, love, denial, more love, and eventually acceptance. The Ondine Quartet has been such a big part of my life for four years and I am immensely sad to see it end, but dude, what an epic way to end! This wonderful book has gloriously killed me with ALL the feels!

I received an ARC of this book, Thank you!, which releases Jan 28th!

I'm not even sure where to begin. I feel I have waited so long to see how this series ends that I can't accept that it has now indeed come to an end. Breaker is one of those books where you will need tissues and chocolates close by because you will feel every emotion imaginable.

There are no words, really, to describe how this book made me feel but I'll do my best to articulate them. Let's see how coherent I can be, shall we?

You all know that I love Emma's characters. Kendra, our protagonist, is headstrong, stubborn, compassionate, and loyal to a fault. She is being pulled in many directions at the moment, torn between being a warrior and being the leader to her people. With her are her friends, Chloe, Aubrey, Cam, Ian, Helene, and more, who are all developed and unique

I honestly don’t know what to write because I have a whole mess of emotions going on right now but one thing I know for sure is that this book was epic!

Through each book I felt that Kendra had to find something in herself, some lesson that she needed to learn to grow and become who she needed to be but non-more so here. What she must go through here would bre

From the moment I picked up Whirl I fell in love with Raveling's writing style, her exceptional ability to not only create a world that completely immerses you but also characters that have managed to imprint themselves both on my mind and in my heart.

With each new book in the series I continue to be surprised by Raveling's ability to surpass the high standards set by the book before it. This truly was an epic conclusion to a captivating and thrilling series. I h

Emma Raveling spellbound me in this finale to the Ondine Quartet. Filled with passion, duty, heartbreak, friendship and the beauty of what it means to live, I will forever cling to this book, and this series, as my all time favorite! Ms. Raveling’s writing is like experiencing a great piece of classical music, the highlightable passages—endless.

This book was the perfect end to a perfect series. We see Breaker lead us into a more darker and confusing world that Kendra has found herself in, as she works to find a way to defeat the Shadow. We get hauntingly beautiful moments, fierce action and determination, as well as heartbreaking loss...
It was so fantastically written that it kept you drawn to the story throughout, you could feel the tension plaguing society and it's main characters. It really put you into a turmoil of emotion.

Finally the anticipation is rewarded, I was one of the lucky people that where handed a ARC.

There is no better feeling that getting ones hands on a a book you have been so passionately waiting for. And I consequently just blanked the world for the next 4 days as I inhaled it. My poor children have been left to daddies devices.

Phew, what a ride that was. I am still reeling from the pace that was set in this incredible finale.

I can't even begin to describe how much I loved this end to a beautiful series. Right from the begin it hooks you in and takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions! This book sucked me back into the Ondine world and it was wonderful. The characters I've come to love like old friends received a perfect ending. I didn't know how Emma was going to do it but she did and I know this will be one of those book series that I will read again and again! ...more

OMG the feels!
Emma Raveling did it again, the book grabs up up and does not let you stop reading till the end. Just finished reading a few miniutes ago, will be back to finish this review after I process.

I just knew you were going to go and breaker my heart, Emma Raveling! And you did. You chipped little, and big pieces away throughout this book….nay…..this whole series. Breaker was everything I had wanted it to be, and a bunch of other things I didn’t know I wanted, or needed. It was the perfect combination of somberness and hopefulness. There wasn’t a single second of this that I would change, even the parts that broke me. They all added up to something so incredible.

Yes it was that good!

I know for a fact every time that I start a book by Emma Raveling that I’m about to be put through an emotional high speed blender. I have yet to meet an author like Emma that has no problem offing central characters, characters that you have grown to love, admire, and hope for the best. Breaker was no exception to this.

Not every question deserves to be answered.

When it comes to endings, we often expect a lot. After sailing in this quite amazing journey, it is only normal that we develop a deep attachment to the characters. Some we love, some we hate. We root for them, we care for them. We share their victories, their failures. We share their happiness and their sorrow. So it is only logical that we wish to know, deserve to know what happens to the characters we cared for for so long.

Ohhhh, I don't know what to think about this book. The Ondine Quartet has been one of my favourite series and I'm not sure that this was the ending that I wanted. It was dark. VERY dark and there was so much negative and hate and fear and pain and too few successes for Kendra and it made it a little hard to get through. I mean, I do understand that she was leading a war, but all the negative kind of got to me and I found myself wanting to skip ahead just so that I didn't have to read any more.

I absolutely loved the Ondine Quartet series. It had to take a great imagination to create such a world. Emma definitely succeeds in this. I loved the main character Kendra. She gives Alex in the covenant series a run for her money. But she is a total bad ass and she does what she has to do to protect the ones she loves. I personally loved she had the position as governor and was bummed when she gave it us... but anyways Kendra is the sondaleur and is definitely the person for the job. Lets talk ...more
The book is fantastic. It really is; this whole series is simply amazing. The plot is captivating and the characters are incredibly well developed. I loved almost every aspect of the series...almost. The end was really cute and I liked the overall idea. I just always saw the romance as a big part of this series, but Kendra's actions after the big battle was a bit iffy to me. For so long, she selfishly hid and let Tristan suffer in solitude. That was not okay with me; he seemed to be at the back ...more

I got the privilege of receiving an ARC of Breaker that releases on January 28. I can tell you that it is one long, amazing thrill ride, filled with trials and tribulations, and all you have is your friends. When they let you down, it's an even harder struggle, when they were always part of your backbone before.

Emma has done a fabulous job on Breaker, I thought I had everything figured out coming into the story and she completely threw me for a loop. (Not in a bad way) Just hold on to your seat

I can't believe that it was only a year ago I stumbled upon Whirl. Emma Raveling has quickly rose to be one of my favorite authors. Breaker is absolutely everything that I wanted it to be. Honest, heartbreaking, funny, inspiring, and so many other adjectives that I simply can't put down in this review.

I loved this series, and have recommended it to everyone I know. Now, with a heavy hear, I have to say goodbye to this world, and wait in eager anticipation for the next book that Emma releases.

3.0/5 Stars so far because the previous books still let a soft spot.

So I am a little over halfway through this book right now, and have to get some thoughts out.
I like this series, I really do. I've had my share of good and bad opinions with it, but overall I thought it was a pretty solid 3.5 star series. I am stingy with my stars, so that is pretty good, coming from me. Most series don't make it past 3.
I say this because I am a bit let down with this last book so far, and didn't just want to co
