Pregnant, possessed, and in love with a man I don't dare to trust—those are the consequences of the risks I took to save my life. But Faerie, the land of blood and magic, is filled with bitter ironies, and the bargains I made now threaten me and my unborn child.

The darkly sensual fae noble Rogue still tempts me to danger and desire. As we aw

Originally published at Reading Reality

The fae world in the Covenant of Thorns is built on the concept that powerful mages need to be careful what they wish for, because they might get it.

In other words, if someone says “don’t make me call my flying monkeys” you can bet that they really have flying monkeys on call. (This happens and it’s awesome).

But magic is the power to essentially wish things into being. Including “True Love”, because that seems to be the only power on Earth or in Faerie capa

Holy freaking cow. Fantasy is not normally my genre of choice, but the way Jeffe Kennedy writes it, well, wow. Rogue's Paradise is the third book in her Covenant of Thorns series and by far my favorite. It's the culmination of everything Rogue and Gwynn have been through in the first two books. It's the book with the most emotional ups and downs. It's the book that shows the true, deep connection between Gwynn, Rogue, Faerie and the Human realm. It's also the book that shows what is going to com ...more

This review originally appeared on my blog, Books Without Any Pictures:

Rogue’s Paradise is the final installment of Jeffe Kennedy’s Covenant of Thorns trilogy, which tells the story of a woman who is pulled into the land of the fae, where she finds both danger and romance. In Rogue’s Paradise, Gwynn finally comes to terms with the fact that she’s madly in love with Rogue, and decides to give into temptation and let herself trust him. Gwynn is pregnant, wou

This is exactly the kind of awesomeness I was expecting from this series. I am so glad that I stuck with this series because the payoff was great. I love the arc that Gwynn’s story took from book one through book two and then finally with book three. She was so lost in her world, she didn’t know who she was or what she really wanted from life, she was just going through the motions. It took her being tortured in a new world for her to find her true self. It also helped that she fell in love. Gwy ...more

Feeling pretty satisfied with the ending.

I'm glad that we finally get to discover the fate of poor Isobel the cat. I would have been pretty pissed off if that particular thread had been left hanging. I liked that a lot of the various secondary characters' story threads have been nicely tied up.

The only problem I really had with this book is that I found the first half to be a tad bit boring. There was a whole lot of wedding planning and lack of anything significantly entertaining, at least in

The last book in the series is my favorite. I flew through this series. The books aren't too long and there's not a gap between stories so it feels like one long book. This series is about a neuroscientist who finds herself in a Faerie land. The world building is clever, the heroine is not a wimp or a doormat. ...more

Rogue's Paradise (Covenant of Thorns) Jeffe Kennedy
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I loved books one and two in this incredible trilogy. Its the kind of Fae story I love, lots of magic, humans and Fae and a few mythical creatures, with battles of wits more than guns, sorcery more than swords. Of course there’s a few “real” weapons used too – its not all magic providing the mayhem. Its such a clever plot too – right from the first pages I was hooked in, and now in book three so many little

Rogue’s Paradise is the third book in the amazing Covenant of Thorns series by Jeffe Kennedy. This book culminates everything we’ve wanted to know, and see happens from the last two books. Rogue and Gwynn are together, although somewhat reluctantly on Gwynn’s part. They have to find a way to take care of Tatianna for good. In my opinion, the way their relationship grows, and the emotional up and downs play the biggest role. With enough sexy scenes to leave you breathless we get much more than we ...more

The last in the series and Jeffe wrapped it up splendidly!

I honestly think of all the books in this series, I enjoyed this one the most. Up until this point in the book, Rogue and Gwynn were very much at odds, and on again/off again. While this made for yummy conflict, I'm a sucker for the stories where the duo work through problems together. In this book, it's Rogue and Gwynn against the world and I simply ate. it. up.

Aside from her unerring ability to weave a great story and killer sexual tens

Jeffe Kennedy is my hero. She is sassy and her characters often have me in turns snorting through my hand with laughter and biting my nails for the sheer edge of your seat action. All three books in this series walk the line of dark sensuality, Fae hotness and women who can't help but fall for the dangerous man they know they shouldn't. Hot! Hot! Hot!

This book in particular had a special edge about it that kept me at the edge of my seat. Anytime you deal with the Fae you have to know something i

I really liked this trilogy. It was fascinating and enthralling, I loved the rules and games even as they were infuriating. The secrecy still, I wonder what some of them were. Although the ending is satisfying and hopeful, I still wonder about some things and people. I think if Ms. Kennedy wants to, she could go back to this world and write more stories. It's a rich place, some threads were left and I have hope. However, Rogue and Gwynn's story is resolved and it was a happily ever after. For my ...more

It took me a while to finish this trilogy. I read the first two books then realized that there was a third not yet out. I waited and forgot in all my other reading. Finally when the third book came out I had to go reread the first two as I was lost. Sometimes too, while reading I didn't like what the characters had to suffer. But all does not appear as you think. Smoke and Mirrors. It's a dark fantasy and well worth persevering to the very end. (Speedily wrapped up IMHO. Almost as if the author ...more

What a way to go!! Brilliant conclusion. With every book I seem to love this fairy world Kennedy created more and more. Major kuddos for her world building and character development. Though some characters have crossed the line into annoyance-land I still just loved reading this story and following it through to the end. The ending left me wanting nothing more and it's as if all open questions received a conclusion so I was left happy and satisfied. Magnificent work! I'm sure this is one of thos ...more

First off, I have to say wow. I just finished this trilogy and the feeling is almost euphoric. My absolute favourite work by Jeffe Kennedy. Jennifer/Gwynn's voice throughout is perfect, a combination of compassionate, snarky, funny and clever. And the way the whole series wrapped together was deeply satisfying. Gwynn's attempts to understand the world around her and her fourth-wall breaking observations make this far more than a common faery romance trilogy.

Strongly recommend for anyone wanting

Very solid four stars. I loved how all the threads and established tropes came together in an end that still held surprises. I wished for a deeper insight in the restructured world and characters at the end though. Overall, a very enjoyable read. My perspective on the tale oddly similar to the main character's take on the world she's been thrown in. That's immersed pov to a T, perfectly executed. Kudos to that. ☺ ...more

I won this for a Twitter contest. I loved books 1 and 2, and was so excited to get book 3.
I love the continued uncertainty that Gwynn has with Rogue's motivations in this last book of the trilogy. It added piquancy to the story, and heightened my anticipation for the upcoming birth. Gwynn's love for Rogue continues to strengthen, and it is beautiful. This is a great Fae book,and I highly recommend this awesome series.

Cool magic, great characters and swoon-worthy romance! Book three ties everything up in a bow. We finally get to see Gwynn and Rogue stop circling each other and get together (though the road is often rocky). The book is first person POV from Gwynn, a scientist from our world, but the author does a great job of showing us how much Rogue loves her. I loved how their wedding vows sounded a declaration of war against Titania.
I have only one complaint. That was clearly the final book in a closed ended trilogy. I'm not ready to leave Gwynn and Rogue yet.

I really enjoyed this trilogy. Novel take on Faerie, compelling characters, and epic story. I feel like I have a lot in common with Gwynn personality wise. The yearning for knowledge and desire to make sense of the world and her place in it. And Rogue -- like I mentioned in a previous review -- reminds me of Jean-Claude, my favorite protagonist. The Machiavellian stack

Fabulous ending

After battles, tortures, tremendous betrayals and scheming the story came to a great end. At certain point I didn’t trust Rogue anymore since he had a deep connection to the Quinn Bitch and couldn’t see happy resolution to the ultimate act of betrayal but somehow it happened. Exciting, very sexy and emotionally engaging read.

High fantasy with a scientific edge makes this trilogy addictive. Favorite characters of fairie come back to haunt the plot. I enjoyed it a lot and wish for more as soon as I finished.

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Rogue is still the ever mysterious Rogue, although we see a new side to him within this book. But, is he sincere? As for Gwynn, she's not taking any chances and is doing her best to look out for herself and her unborn baby.

Everything ties together nicely within this story. Some long, lingering questions have finally been answered. There are some surprising revelations as well.

This book turned out wonderfully, see my review of "Rogue's Pawn", the first installment of this series, for my opinion.
Hint: This series really is great, there are lots of little nods to a true mix between science and magic that make the story more believable than many of it's counterparts. I definitely recommend the read!
