Eternal Sacrifice

The thrilling conclusion to this entertaining action packed fantasy. This story pulled me from the first page! It was so emotional gripping I couldn’t put it down.
I’m honestly not sure how I feel about everything that played out I’m still processing it all but I do know that you don’t want to miss this if you’ve read the previous books!

Eternal Sacrifice is an incredibly powerful and tremendously epic adventure that will enthrall your senses, rejuvenate your heart, and transforms your very soul. The messages and themes throughout this truly masterful series will tug at your heart and give you so much to think about and reevaluate in your life. I would gladly and enthusiastically recommend this series to young adult and adults alike. There is so much more going on than teenagers struggling to do what is right and what they were ...more

This book was sent to me in exchange for my honest review. All opinions and thoughts expressed are my own.

This was an action packed conclusion to a series that I fell in love with during book 1. That love continued on with books 2-3 and rests now with book 4.

All of the characters that I loved played a pivotal role in the taking down of the antagonists, but there are even some surprise characters that impress me along the way. Marcus, my favorite character, even gets his time to shine throughout

DISCLAIMER: I was gifted an Amazon copy (from the author) in exchange for honest review.

Stacey . . . Why did you do that! \o/ I mean it worked in the end. But why would you do that to me! I thought I was having a heart attack!

The conclusion to this epic adventure is bomb. Valac is still causing havoc. Rowan and Kalin have to figure out ways to make time to see each other because they both have duties to fulfill as rulers in their separate courts.

Sacrifices must be made in order to protect Avalon

I received an e-copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found on *Milky Way of Books*

The final book of this series was as amazing as it should be. After the cliffhanger from the third book and the long wait I had to endure before the release of this one, I was glad to see that many questions were answered, new allies were made and secrets were revealed.

Kalin and Rowan are fighting to save the courts as the world is heading straight towards an enviromental Apocalypse.

What an awesome finish to the series! It was a rollercoaster ride till the end! I loved every minute of it!

There is nonstop action, adventure, romance, sorrow and balance.

I gobbled up this book from the moment I started it! It was easy to read the flow was fast and perfect. I love the characters. I even liked Selene who redeemed herself. Marcus’s story, well I can’t say much about him without it being a spoiler but I would love there to be another book about him.

Emotionally Wrecking But What a Fantastic Conclusion!!

I am wrecked. So much blood was sacrificed. Death, destruction, and heart wrecking losses were suffered. My eyes are far from dry. What an amazing action-packed and emotional ride this last installment of the series was. My heart still hurts from the big losses, but it soars as the adventure ends with love and most importantly: HOPE.

Eternal Sacrifice is the third and final book in Stacey O'Neale's Mortal Enchantment series. Valac is preparing to steal four powerful artifacts so that he can threaten the four courts of Avalon to be allowed to rule them all. Because with all four artifacts he would be able to destroy the mist surrounding Avalon, thus bringing about the end of the world. If Valac is able to destroy the mist the only way to save the world will be for Kalin to sacrifice herself.

This is the last book in this incredible series, and I could not put it down once I started the first book. The storyline created between the two main characters, Rowan and Katlin, drew me in from the beginning. Rowan, the seeming self-assured young man, who is able to inspire those around him more than once he can take down a whole army down with his sword , but inside he is much more vulnerable than anyone ever dreams. Then Katlin, who seems so "sheltered" from this world she walks into, but t ...more

My Thoughts:

Series finales are always one of my favorite and least favorite reviews to post, at the same time. How can that be? While I'm so overjoyed to rave about an incredible finale (they are too few and far between), I hate juggling the bittersweet emotion of finality meaning I'm saying goodbye to another cast of characters that I've grown to love. I won't lie folks, as many series as I've read, this one will fo

I have been a big fan of this series. It has been intense. Kailin and Rowen clearly belonged together from the minute he laid eyes on her. The progression of their relationship was sweet. A bit slow but they are young even though the fate of the world rests on their shoulders. Marcus and Ariel....to not provide spoilers....heart breaking. Loving and heart breaking all in one. I had hoped for a epilogue because this series just ended quite abruptly. All questions were answered but a bit more of R ...more

I loved this series until the middle/end of this book. I feel like she was rushed to finish. The first two books were so well thought out and I felt the characters feelings, but honestly besides being sad over Ariel’s death it was empty for me. Everything seemed like a rush to get to the end, even the end wrapped up in 2 pages. I don’t want to go on and on, but it was a little of a letdown for me when I had a really good time reading the first two books.

Another page turner!

This is the last book in the series. I'm going to miss these characters and the land of Avalon. Since you need to read these in order to fully appreciate the storyline, I highly recommend the box set. It has the prequel novella that clarifies how everything came about. I guarantee you'll love this series.

I am a lover of fantasy, and when I saw the "for the lovers of Maas and Black" I was instantly intrigued. I am sad to say that these stories fell a bit flat for me. There was potential in the characters and the setting; I loved the nod to Arthurian legend, Avalon, and Merlin. I appreciated the complex world the writer was trying to create. But it didn't feel fully realized. ...more

What did I think?
Loved it. This was a fantastic way to wrap up this wild series. Stacey answered all our questions and gave us the ending we were dreaming of.

Kalin and Rowan sure have things cut out for them in this novel. The worlds are potentially collapsing and the only way to stop it is sacrificing herself. The only way to save everyone is to say goodbye.

I'm going to level with you. I went into this book needing that NOT to happen. I needed the HEA I wanted and that

Eternal Sacrifice Review on K-Books

There were no words to explain just how excited I was when I was asked if I wanted to review this book for the blog tour. Ever since I read the prequel novella The Shadow Prince I was completely obsessed with this series. I loved it so much and it had my favourite aspects of a YA book, romance and mythology. I adored it and that continued through to book 1 and 2. Book 3 absolutely did not diasappoint and was a completely explosive and satisfying end to the seri

Eternal Sacrifice is the third and final book of the Mortal Enchantment series by Stacey O'Neale.


Valac is causing major mayhem and Rowan and Kalin need to figure out how to stop him and save their people and their world. But in order for them to achieve this goal, sacrifices will need to be made. They will need to make hard, difficult decisions. Decisions that could potentially cause them to lose the one they love the most.

I was not disappointed by Mrs O'Neal's again. It was a hard book to put down. From page one I wanted to finish it.Even throughout the whole book I am telling myself that I knew how it was going to end. Boy was I thrown for a loop. O'Neal's knows just how to draw you into her stories, and just when you think you know what is coming next WRONG!

I absolutely loved the first two books in this series, and while my adoration tapered off in the third and fourth installments, I still feel it's a good series and the author gave it a good ending.

I guess my decreasing interest came from the increased emphasis on Arthurian legend as well as the main character being revealed as the "akasha", which felt a little bit too Avatar-Last-Airbenderish for me. Both of these elements detracted from what drew me to the series in the first place, a story set
