Finally, A HEA For Anna!

If you're a fan of this series, then you won't want to miss this fifth, and final, book. Devin's day of judgment has finally arrived and he will be forever changed. I was glad to have a front row seat!

Compared to earlier books in the series, 'Emerged' is a lighter, tamer read. Although, that isn't to say it's without the darker elements this series is known for. Anna's life is much improved once she escapes Devin's clutches, but she still has her fair share of hardship to
I can finally rest in peace. This series has haunted my dreams literally for this past week. I've been sleeping at 3-4 in the morning power napping and waking up at 6-7 to keep reading. I just don't have words to describe my feelings. It's like Marissa stuck a knife in my chest this whole week and ripped my heart open. I was crying on book 3 and from then on. I just coulnd't put this books down. I needed to keep reading hoping that by the end of each book Anna would finally find her HEA but I wa ...more

What did I think? I LOVED IT!!!!!!

This book has a completely different feel from the first four books. There wasn't the major darkness and debauchery! Well, there was a little at one point, but not to the extent this author had gotten us used to...... uh, can you really get used to it? I don't know, but I couldn't stop reading about it!

Anna finally had a chance at being free, living a "normal" life, falling in love..... it was really great to see her inner strength shine and her become a strong

Wow, this has been incredible journey and one hell of a roller coaster ride. The entire series was an experience and met my full expectations on dark, gritty, intense romance. You want blood and gore, horrifying scenes, Marissa Honeycutt delivers. You want wild crazy Ooooo's, then grab your vibrator and have a seat because this book is for you! If you want me to tell you how the story goes, nahhhh not my style, get your own copy! Enjoy!

So different...

I have anticipated this book and was so excited... but Emerged read differently than 1-4. It was much tamer, much less violent, and while I expected a wind down as it is the conclusion, I didn't expect it to be this different. It was very well written, all Ms. Honeycutt's books are, and I enjoyed it but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little disappointed. I expected... well, more. We have all been on pins and needles, expecting this huge showdown, the big finale, and it just kin

WOW! Last part of Anna's story. It's been such a wild, crazy journey it feels sad to reach the end.
I'm going to do this review in two parts. (Some bizarre new thing of mine)
First part is the short and sweet version, for those who aren't too keen on long reviews. Then I'll go in to more detail in the second part.

Short Version:

Incredible! This final part of Anna's story was always going to be bittersweet. I was dying to know how it all ended but also didn't want it to end. So I didn't wan

4.5 Stars!!

The rollercoaster of dark, sexy, and depraved is over. I will never forget this heart stopping, soul smashing, heart breaking story. Definitely up there with some of my favorites. This is finally the end. I'm sad, I'm happy, it's bittersweet. Five books, you get addicted to the story, you fall for the characters, and you definitely don't want to let go.

This was the best conclusion. Anna gets her HEA... Devin gets what he deserves. Act

I can't express how good Emerged was! You truly outdid yourself Marissa! The Life of Anna series has stuck with me like no other book series have. It's bittersweet for me. I loved how the book ended and the happy ever after, but it also means that Anna's story is complete. I think Anna blossomed in this book and you get to see the true colors of other characters! Without giving too much away I especially enjoyed all of the revenge in this book, it was perfect! Emerged is the perfect title for th ...more
Just ok.. 3.5

I'm probably going to get burned at the stake for my review.
I even waited a few days to make sure this is what I wanted to rate and say.
I thought Anna was still annoying with the naive know it all. Although every time you think she's growing up, BOOM old ways again.
I really don't want to give spoilers, so this review is vague.
I thought it was just over done and time to end. Glad the ending happens the way it did.
I hope everyone enjoys this book. To each their own.

Alright.. so reading this book gave me the creeps! Reading the whole series did. While reading it though - I was SO sure this book would become a typical Stockholm Syndrome where Anna would fall in love with Devin (which she did a few times) and end up with him and forgive him and Devin would be the nicest handsomest man out there.

I'm SUPER glad that is not the case and I thought for a whole day whether to purchase this book or not knowing I would request a refund if such a thing happened. I app

OMG!!! I purchased the book yesterday evening and after starting it , i was just unable to put it down even for a sec.
This book was awesome and I am so glad that Anna got her HEA.

This book starts from where emerged ended.Anna is free from Devin's clutches and starts a new life in New York with a new identity.
She already has a set of old friends there to protect her and along the way she finds some new good friends , lover.
Then in the middle she gets to meet a mystery man and from here on the sto

There are literally not enough words to describe how in love I am with this series! From the moment I read Enslaved I was hooked. Anna's story drew me in like a moth to a flame. This series has given me a whole new range of emotions that I didn't even know we're possible. So beautiful written that you find yourself taking the journey along with Anna, Alex, Devin and so many more.
Alex, the constant hero! The dream man that I'm sure we all wish we had.
Devin, the evil villain that you love to hate
I don't even know what to say!
This series was an EPIC ride from start to finish, how do you put it into words?
FINALLY, Anna has been bestowed some solace, some peace, and possibly a happy ending ;)

Anna has joined Aaron in NY, luckily she joins the NYC ballet, and starts a new "fresh" life.
Her new life includes another hunky man, who just so happens to fill the void for acceptance and love that Anna needs.
As per his M.O., Devin continues his search...
Crazy things happen, new characters appear,

I just finished Emerged. It was a long, hard, dark road to get here, book 5. But, it was so very worth it.

If you've read any of the previous ones, don't miss out on this wonderful conclusion to the very darkest read I've ever encountered. From book 4 I went straight to book 5 and book 5 I read straight through - 13 hours.

I hope that there is more to read about Anna and Alex and Kurt and Stef and Aaron and Sebastian and all the other wonderful characters we've met along the

Wow! Wow! Wow! Absolutely phenomenal final instalment in the Life Of Anna series!
The first 4 books were brilliant but this was fantastic!
To finally get my hands on it and to see the inevitable conclusion to this gripping tale was worth the short wait. I read it in one afternoon - I just couldn't put it down!
Utterly tragic in places, faith-restoring in others, not to mention steaming hot!
5 stars from me! Highly recommended!

The finale to one of the best series I have ever read, and I was not disappointed.
Marissa yet again takes you on another emotional rollercoaster ride that doesn't stop till the last page.
Brilliant just brilliant.

Excellent Series ending

I loved how dark this was and even though Anna went through so much see had somw wonderful people on her side that helped.

Anna and Alex have a true bond that will last forever.

I can honestly say the best part was seeing Anna in her rage and may Devin suffer for a very long time.
Great series, too long and I'm glad it's over. ...more

Didn't hate it. didn't love it.

I feel like the air was taken out of my sails. I don't know if my expectations were too high?? Based on all the reviews, and the warning from the author, I was expecting dark dark twisted dark. But what I feel like I got was -- meh... I have read way darker, crazier, more twisted than these books. And honestly, I feel like the "dark" title has been given to it based on the sex slave aspect of the series. I just personally do not consider the constant rape of a wom

Okay I will start off with the good, this is a really good series about a journey of a young girl who finds herself locked in nightmare and no way to wake up to escape. This final book did not disappoint, it went down that path that you would expect. It had great moments of angst, sadness, love, and indifference. The bad for me was the retelling of Alex's POV, It isn't that I did not want to know what happened to him because I did and I enjoyed those. It was the other one that were a rehash. I r ...more

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads

Finally the conclusion to this extremely harrowing, but totally compelling series. We were promised an ending we would deserve, but we certainly had to work for it! You really do need to read the series from the beginning to have a fighting chance of understanding this novel!

I was delighted that the plot-lines were tied up, and that the hope which was hinted at towards the end of book 4 did in fact take hold. It was hugely s

What to say about this book other than the fact that it's amazing. This entire series is amazing.
The Life of Anna follows Anna through her very rough life from the age of 12. Most of the things she goes through are terrifying and things we would find appalling. They are absolutely normal to her,
In this final installment of LoA we see her grow into who she is supposed to be.

A truly thrilling read to end this series. Dark and twisted yet again but with lots of hot steamy sex along the way. I felt I was under a spell the whole way through reading it. Didn't want to put it down and savoured every word slowly once I had re read books 1-4.

So hard to write a review without giving details away, you need to read and experience this amazing journey,

Emerged was a bitter sweet read for me, was waiting for this final book but I am very sad that this is the ending in such a unique series.
