Wow! A very nice wrap up to this trilogy!

The last book in the trilogy does a very good job of not only wrapping up loose ends, but bringing Hillary's revenge crusade to a shocking end!

A small backstory:

Everyone thinks Hillary is dead when in fact she is very much alive and she has it in her mind that she is going to take revenge on everyone that had anything to do with her being tortured from the past, but what she doesn't know is she ends up meeting an old woman (Miss Billie) that feels sorry

My mouth shock senses in heart heavy

and my psychopath personality is completely satisfied!!

You know what...I think my review is summed up perfectly in the upper 3 sentences...there isn't anything else I can think to add except for...

1) READ THESE BOOKS! (Well at least read 1/2 of the 2nd book if you are known to have a weak heart)


3) I will NEVER forget these books! Masterpiece! <3

I have been on a Hillary reading marathon! Holy mother of pearl, is this trilogy intense, insanely dark and nightmarish in quality. Angel Gelique went above and beyond with, her five star villain. She's monstrous, the truest definition of evil.

There are no redeeming qualities or hint of mercy or humanity. Her soul is blacker than tar, Hillary is the freak you'd love to hate, not silently cheer for! Any empathy I might have had flew out the widow a long...long time ago. So I'm glad the demon

WOW, Angel you sure can write!

To say I was surprised by the turn of events this book ended up taking, is an understatement.

I agree with Jahy, more on Jake would be great ( she totally didn't put me up to it, Angel)

I loved this series with all it darkness.

A proper review to come later!

How much can you cram into such a sort life?

When there are so many people to blame, where does the blame begin?

Wow this series had me on a roller-coaster ride. When I first read the blurb on book one I thought the book was gonna be something else, boy was I wrong. This series turned into so much more and any review I could write would never do it justice.
I found myself having different opinions of Hilary throughout the book (series) and even went as far as thinking some of the things she did wer

This book... by itself.. was just ok..

It was as if.. this one book tried to add 'plot' to the entire series.. and it sort of fizzled

It didn't have what we all wanted it to have. and that was a bummer... it all happened 'to quick'

the first two books.. were pure psychological abuse/dark while this book was more demonic focused.. and eh... just not for me.. This is why traditional horror tends to bore me..

Overall though, The entire series was just awesome. Well done.. VERY VERY different.. and that

Book 1 and Book 3 were so creepy yet entertaining. Book 2 was too disturbing for me but overall an great horror trilogy and I'm looking forward to reading more books by this author.

This one absolutely threw me for a loop. Was not expecting this ending at all, and that's a good thing. I like when a book is unpredictable, keeps me hooked.
I don't know what I could possibly say about this series that I haven't already said in my other two reviews.
So I'll go with this...
If your looking for something sadistic, twisted and gory, this one's for you. If your looking to be mind@#%, this one's for you. Again, not for the faint at heart or for those with queasy stomachs, you will fe

I found the conclusion to Hillary's story riveting!
I was engrossed in the story unfolding before me and in the changes Hillary and Jake were undergoing.
I equally enjoyed all the new characters and their back stories. Each one so well written that I was able to relate to them immediately.
I felt each & every emotion the characters were feeling because they were genuine.

In my humble opinion, Hillary: Retribution and Angel Gelique are magnificent!!

5 Satisfyingly vile stars! ; )

Hillary: Retribution or Hillary 3marks the end of a very bravely written trilogy. It takes damn near every idea and taboo subject and blasts it right past your eyeballs and into your brain like a literary injection from hell.

So, first I have a few comments about Hillary Greyson herself, as a character. Hillary is a deceptively complex character created by Angel Gelique’s dark, dark, DARK imagination. And that is a lot of the appeal. If you look at Hillary a certain way, she’s a tragic figure. S

This book has to be read in order to have closure on the other 2. Actually, this could be a stand-alone. most of it is recapping good old Hillary's escapades and "fun" times without as much gore and description.

The end was the end, but the end goes on. Sort of bummed about the supernatural element out of the blue, the whole "Mother Abigail" with a twist, the quickly wrapped up suicide, and what the fuck happened to vagina boy?

So, now after reading all three of these messed up books, I need to cl

So what happened to Jake is my big question???
So after reading book 1 & 2 I was ready for more..... Well you get answers and meet so many new people along the way, but book 3 was like reading a fairy princess book after what went on in the other books. But the ending for Eliza was kidda weird?! Jake just, well, I don't know really? His family? The outcome to the last scene in the motel?
Just some open ended little things that kinda feel apart but otherwise a good series.
omg, i love this series, i didnt expect that ending, all three books in hillary series are brill, gory but brill, i highly recommend these books, especially to horror fans, Angel Gelique is an awesome writer, ive loved every book written by her, next on my list is 'mother'.

Retribution is the conclusion to the #HillaryTrilogy, and could have been the best story of all three.
The first one is twisted & sick. Nice.
The second one is a prequel, also twisted and sick - but with more meat. Very good. BUT - even gore-gals have limits, and mine is in the second book. I could have done without the details re: Hillary's little brother. That's just one girls opinion - don't let it influence your 'to read or not to read' decision. Minus that - it's my fav in the #HillaryTrilo

***I received a free copy from Paranormal and Horror Lovers in exchange for a review***

I enjoyed this book. The opening held my interest right away and had me sitting on the edge of my seat. My mind raced with questions. Was Hillary the bad guy? Did Dr. Jake hurt her?

Hillary was considered dead by the public. They thought she was killed while resisting arrest in the woods. However, Dr. Morrison and Dr. Jake held her captive for military testing. When she escaped, Dr. Jake was afraid she would ki

You know what, when Hillary met Miss Billie i had a feeling this book would be the best horror book i've ever read. i expected Hillary would be cured by Miss Billie and she would be back to the innocent-Hillary again and they lived happily ever after.

But I know something's wrong, really really wrong when Miss Billie had blood all over her hands.

and the worst part i couldn't resist was that Hillary was dead and Eliza killed herself and Miss Billie turned into a monster.

This was such an amazing finale to two great books. I couldn't think of a better ending to this story than the one the author chose to write. For those of you who are familiar with the Hillary books, you are in for one wild ride. While reading these three books, I experienced such a wide range of emotions, from feelings of compassion to actually closing the book and putting it down thinking I couldn't read anymore ( because of gruesomeness ), then going back to it twenty minutes later because I ...more

Wow, this series is one of the few that was wrapped up perfectly by the author in three books while still keeping the reader on the edge of their seat the entire time. This final book in the series left me constantly wondering if and when Miss Billie would meet a gruesome fate like several other previous victims of Hillary's wrath.

Angel does an amazing job of character development so you can't help but empathize with the emotional turmoil each individual is experiencing throughout the story. It

I won this book from the recent giveaway and loved it. I haven't
read the first 2 in the trilogy but was able to follow the Hillary's story just fine. The moment I opened it up I couldn't think of anything else until I was done and even still, I think about the story often. I will be ordering the other books soon so I can read Hillary's story from the beginning.

Recommended to Angie by: I read the others
I enjoyed the last part of this extremely hard trilogy. It was as hard hitting as the previous books, and had all the damaged people back. Poor Jake. What a mess he and his family were left in. And nothing gets better for anyone. The chase for Hilary is on. Addictive reading!

This was a good read............but.............I did not get the same feeling as I did with the first 2 books in the series. I was not happy with the turn of events towards the end. Demons??!! Really??!!! I knew this story was heading downwards when demons and god were introduced into the story. The series started out great with the whole serial killer thing going on. Book #3 was a let down.
