Recommends it for: Paranormal sirens everywhere

5 stars !!!!!!!!

Asher St. Michael, prince of the gargoyle race, emanates darkness, power, and raw beauty. He took an oath to protect his siren, Eve Collins, always.

“You live in fear that no one will hear your cries...I hear them. I’ll catch you when you fall, always. All of your broken dreams, I will make them fade away. When you’re lost, I will find you and bring you home. I will pick you up when your world shatters.”

I loved this series so much. I read the first four books back to back and

This finale is epic in every way imaginable, and the perfect conclusion to this amazing series! After the ending of the fourth book, Revolution, with the revelation that Daddy of the Hotty-McHottster gargoyle brothers is alive and well, and that he basically hates Eve, well, you know that some major drama was going to go down in this book.

I HATE when I start a series and find out I have to wait for the next book! This series is fantastic! Randi, if you need some ARC reviews I'm here for you! *wink wink, hint hint*

***I received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review***

Fast pace, lots of action, and some steamy scenes!

Amazing! I tried to take a little time enjoying the end of Eve and Asher, but couldn't stop reading! I still think Abby is my favorite character, I'm so happy for her and Callan.

Everything was wrapped up great
{My Thoughts} – This was a spectacular conclusion to an incredibly well written series. I am honored to have been given the opportunity to read this entire series.

Eve and Asher are put through some of their biggest trials within the pages of this book. They both learn that the truth they have known has been altered to fit the agenda of others. They both learn that they cannot survive. nor exist without the other. They both learn that despite everything they really truly are in love with one anot

I loved the series. The characters are the really great and I was very at peace with how the series ended. It's a love and hate feeling when you like it but you could always read more! I cannot wait for RPA!!

This was a great ending to the story. Wrapped everything up while leaving some details that I’m sure feed into the Royal Protector Academy spin-off.

There was the usual theme of Asher & Eve being separated & then reunited. Seems these two just can’t keep track of one another... but the reunion is always intensely sweet (& hot) so it works, even if a little overdone at this point. At least throughout these experiences it felt like Eve was finally learning. The ceremony was nice. Very p

I devoured this series in less than a week. Part of me is really excited to say that, because I got to read all the hot Asher scenes. The other part of me, though, is a little bit devastated that it’s over. I mean, seriously, why can’t there be like 20 books in this series? I’d read them all.

I hate to say it, but Restoration was probably my least favorite book in the series…. It was a little choppy. There were several scenes that felt as

This was a really great series that I enjoyed immensely. I laughed, I cried, and I was able to really engage with the plot and characters. I'm extremely excited about the spin off.

There were a couple things that really annoyed and aggravated me throughout this series that I hope won't be in the spin off trilogy. First, was how often Eve made just really bad and almost irrational decisions. Her reasons for them just didn't make sense. I suppose it could have been due to or explained away by her

Ok so the book finally came out and It was just breathtaking. I am so sad this series is over. It's so rare when you fall in love with the characters and are in the moment. I couldn't have asked for more out of this final installment! Can't wait to see what else Mrs. Randi writes!

I can't really describe what Asher looks like in my head or Eve for that matter but this is the closest I could come up with. I always make up the characters up in my own head and honestly no picture can c

Soaring Up High

Restoration is a stunning conclusion to Randi Cooley Wilson’s Revelation series. I enjoyed reading every single page with these characters and I’m throughly sad to say goodbye to them (even though there is a next generation series called Royal Protector Academy).

Eve has survived it all. She has gone through death, grief, heartbreak, and making some extremely hard decisions. Now she awaits her final trail: acension. Eve really made me like this book a lot. I like how she had her f

This is the final book in the series, many questions get answered and relationships are strengthened. My favorite part of this book is how Asher and Eve finally learn to work together and trust each other, which is needed if they are going to save their future. There are lots of trying moments for the couple but they come out stronger.

Asher must face his worst fear and Eve must let him. This is a great finish for this series, everything tied together nicely.

So glad I didnt give up on this series too quickly!! This book was great! Tense moments coupled with sweetness and adventure! My only grips is that some of the plot lines came up and then were resolved too soon- would have loved to see more out of some of them! Overall, a great series Im glad I didn’t abandon!

When it all falls apart, can you put it back together?
When Randi Cooley Wilson’s last book, Revolution (Book 4 in the Revelation series), ended, it seemed like everything was over. Eve Collins, our heroine, was carted off by the bad guys, in this case her mate’s father (wow!) and things were looking bleak.

As Restoration opens, clearly we know that somehow Eve and Asher (her ultra dominating, sex

What a great ending to this wonderful and action-packed series! I cannot believe it's over :'( I will miss my full-time sessions with my fave characters Asher, Gage, Callan, Abby, Uriel and even Kenna! At least I will have them for part-time sessions in RPA!

It is an understatement to say that Asher and Eve have gone through literal hell to be together and save the human race along with the
The moment I finally had Restoration on my kindle was a bitter-sweet one for me. I had been waiting for months for the final instalment in the Revelation series, so I was excited to read it and see how the series ended. On the other hand though, I knew it meant the end of Eve and Asher’s story, and I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to them.

I needn’t have worried though, because Randi Cooley Wilson sent these characters off in style! I’m not going to say too much about the story, this is book five in

I really enjoyed this final book. After the cliffhanger in book 4 I wasn't sure what to expect from this book.

Ultimately the best part of this book is that Eve and Asher have finally accepted their love for each other and are no longer fighting their desire to be together.

Of course they still drive each other nuts and use their sexual tension to prove their points.


Abby and Callun are hysterical as always and Kenna Is her normal b*tchy self.

Merissa (Archaeolibrarian)
This is the fifth and final book in the Revelation series, which has followed Eve, Asher and the St Michael clan through their trials and tribulations. Everyone I know adores the warmness and cuteness of Callan and Abby. I love the strength and stoicism of Keegan and McKenna, and yes even McKenna's bitchiness! BUT the couple that have kept me coming back to this, time and time again, is Eve and Asher. The intensity and passion between these two nearly set my kindle on fire, and it just got hotte ...more

So Eve's story is over and what a way to go! I cant even begin to say how happy I am with the way this ended. there is nothing left open, nothing I wished to be different. It was the perfect ending to a perfect

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I am a huge fan of the Revelation Series by Randi Cooley Wilson, so when I was given a chance to read a digital ARC of Restoration I had high hopes and expectations for Eve and Asher's journey. I truly believe that this book met every expectation I had and completed the "gargoyle awsomeness" that fans have come to know and love from the St. Micheal's clan. The series ends by answering all the questions fans had from the previous four books and o
Mar 17, 2016 rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
I felt for most of this series that there was no reason that Eve had to be 18, she could just have easily been in her 20's and it would have made it feel less uncomfortable for the situations she was put in and having a relationship that was supposed to last forever with someone who was so much older than her. However, this seems to be a theme in YA books, finding your 'mate' at 18 and having to save the world, it's gotten very old and I'm pretty much done with reading this type of book now. Als ...more

0 stars. I had to stop at 55%. Never have I EVER not been able to at least finish the last book in a series I have started. That is how bad this book is. Formulaic storyline, faux intellectual (and nonstop reiteration of) light and dark musings, the absolute most immature and unbearable heroin I have ever come across. It was all too much. The final straw was finding out midway through the LAST book that everything she he been told was a lie, and the truth was about as anticlimactic and uninteres ...more
