The grand finale to a magnificent series and wow what a ride this was. The war had always been one between the Gods and never one between primordials and catharians but unfortunately the gods pulled everyone into the war. The battle had to be fought bu those who supported Avery and Cayden, the twin spirit shields as alone they could not defeat their sister Helga who was ready to reap souls before giving them the chance to be reborn. Susan Faw wrote so beautifully about the idea of rebirth and re ...more

From the dark and terrifying opening to the cataclysmic, heartbreaking final clash, Soul Sacrifice is a riveting read. Evil forces vie for control in a struggle that could go either way. Alliances are forged and broken and secrets long hidden are uncovered, as humans and Primordials alike fight to protect the well of souls from Helga’s twisted plans. Alive with vivid imagery, very real human conflicts and relatable characters, Soul Sacrifice is a page-turner, a satisfying and triumphant finish t ...more

Great finish of the series! Everything comes to the conclusion - every event was prophecised and would have its explanation.
In this book alliances change, who was sworn enemy would become the surprising ally, who was considered ally would be apparently an enemy. What struggles would occur this time for our four godlings?
Join them in this spectacular conclusion of the series.
Anne Monteith
The author has written a beautiful tale of rebirth through reincarnation for all creatures, a cycle where the souls are protected by the spirit shields. Cayden and Avery are the spirit shields and now recall most of their past and why they chose to become human.

Avery has been joined by Artio, at first as her prisoner because Artio is still focused on revenge and believes that Avery and Cayden were responsible for killing her and her lover Genii. She knows that without Avery’s assistance she wil

Soul Sacrifice, the third and final instalment in the Spirit Shield Saga takes off right after the end of Soul Sanctuary. The stakes are higher than ever as the battle for control of the souls of the dead comes down to the climactic battle between the godling siblings Avery, Cayden, Artio and Helga.

I won’t post a plot summary simply because if you happen upon this review and have not read the two previous volumes which are needed to understand the story, I may accidentally give something away.

Man!!! What an ending to a fabulous set of stories.
One of the most epic battles written, sacrifices of some really great people for others the continue.

Two sisters part gods, part who knows what, both with the intent of ruling the world and all its inhabitants. Even if it means the deaths of their siblings. Other lesser beings with the same intent not knowing that they were just pawns of the godlings.

This is great series, with multiple scenarios being carried out, across a given time span. Some may find it difficult to balance the various aspects of the story, but it is dramatic and intriguing, keeping the reader enthralled with each different event.

This is, in a way not a HEA ending, but it is a righteous ending. An ending which epitomizes the ideals of our heroes.

Yes, a VERY enjoyable saga!!!

A great finish to the series. The world building and characters are wonderful, and I enjoyed the story. There is a lot going on. I recommend reading the other two books first so you are familiar with the characters (there are a lot of them) and previous events. The plot is detailed and has many twists. I like how the ending reflects what happened in the beginning of the series. Like the circle of life: everything has the chance to start over and hopefully be better the next time around.

The epic conclusion to all the chaos that Helga creates and will the twin Spirit Shields and Artic beat the odds? I was hooked on this Trilogy. It was well written and detailed enough that I felt like I was traveling alongside Cayden and his sister Avery. A few Twists that I didn't see coming kept me from putting the book down. ...more

What a wonderful book. It was such a pleasure to read . I was totally captivated by the story. Sadness, love, greed and kindness. A melting pot of emotions and for a change , the good guys win.
May the force be with you.

I am sad it's over and I will re-read at some point.

Thank you for creating such a treasured trilogy.

This was an amazing series that kept me on the edge of my seat. There were so many twists and turns that I had to go back and read again to make sure I read it right. I would love to see it as a movie! The ending was a bit of a surprise, but the epilogue was very surprising and it if meant what I thought it did I wasn't so sure about it. I mean who would want to be the mother of their previous lover. Kind of weird if you ask me. Just saying. ...more

Rejects, abominations and unnatural creations of the substance of nature from whence they come, a shroud of death and absolute stillness and silence follow the wake of the Charun's path. As Achak remained frozen, for anything less would bring his own decapitation, like those the Charun and his brethren carried to dispose in a circle of other rotting testaments to their depravity. The triangular pyramids around the horrid open pit, were made worse by the realisation that each was created with the ...more
