Pregnancy isn’t easy when your baby daddy is a crazy overprotective angel-vampire hybrid and there’s a kidnapper on the loose.

Georgia Pearce is with child, carrying a baby destined to begin the next generation of powerful witches. As if a mysterious prophecy and a new (dysfunctional) family wasn’t enough to deal with, all of Georgia’s hard work to rebuild her coven is rui

This is the last book in the series and I am sad it is finished. I really enjoyed it so much, I was drawn in right from the first couple of paragraphs of the first book. The ending of this last book is really exciting and has not let the series down.There is some sadness but mostly it is happy and very romantic. There is a glimpse of a possibility for some of the other characters to have their own stories if the author decides to consider it? I would love that because I think they are interestin ...more

I stayed up way past my bedtime finishing this one! What a perfect ending to the trilogy. Vampires, demons, witches, angels and Nephilim (and some hybrid’s), oh my! This book gives us lots of answers, but in a kick ass, full of action way. There is death, birth, heartache, spells and more. Don’t miss the final instalment. I'm sad to be leaving Georgia and Zak, but can't wait for the promised spin offs (and yes, please please please write a book about JB!). I am voluntarily reviewing the book Fir ...more

Georgia is a witch-vampire hybrid and in book 3 everything comes together and also ends. I cried while reading this book, it's always an excellent sign if I cry, that shows emotional attachment with the characters in the book. The characters have come alive. I haven't yet read the first two, but so loved this book, the storyline & characters come alive and enriched the reading of it. It's a must read, I highly recommend this book.

This series is pretty cool, and I've really enjoyed Georgia's story as of late. She's pregnant in this newest installment, and after everything that she and Zak have been through, you'd think they could catch a breather or two and have easy sailing the whole way through. Wrong. Instead the stakes for keeping their baby safe have risen, and with every new discovery of Zak's past, it's beginning to look like they just may never

A Fantasy ending to an absolute 5-star series!
Everything a reader is looking for Hinchy has provided!
One elementally and dysfunctionally challenged family - of chosen not blood - who will have you laughing, crying and overall in love with them
One evil and twisted antagonist - and when it is revealed who it is - never would have even thought possible
One tiny little jelly bean of an HEA and a few other possible HEA's in the future (hint to Jane Hinchey)
Of the series, this was quite possibly the to

Totally enjoying this series and it appears Georgia and Zac will finally get their happily ever after although it is not going to be smooth sailing for this pair. Georgia has quite a few nasty demons and one very determined Nephilim after her trying to make sure her baby is never born as it will be a very powerful witch. Skye, Georgia sister is also in for some heartbreak. Zac is finding it difficult to let Georgia do her job, he loves her so much and just wants to protect her but someone has be ...more

This book is choc full of action, suspense and some great twists!
I really enjoyed the fact it could be read as a stand alone book even though it is the last book in a 3 nook series as the past is touched on in a way that not too much time is spent on it but you get the picture. Georgia may be pregnant but is still a very tough and determined person and nothing is going to stop her having her baby and living happily ever after with Jelly Bean and Zak. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Zak and
Jun 25, 2017 Janet rated it really liked it
Witches, vampires, angels, demons, birth, death, all mixed in to this last book in the trilogy. It was an enjoyable read and it wraps up the series nicely. Questions from the earlier books are resolved and the loose ends tied up. Georgia and Zak's story is complete but Jane Hinchey is thinking of writing about some of the other characters which should be interesting. If you have read First Blade and First Witch, this book will make more sense but it can be read as a standalone.

If you haven't read the previous two books then the blurb for this and probably most reviews will give away a good bit of spoilers.
This was a sweet conclusion to the trilogy, and it was so cute seeing jelly beans personality even from the womb. I really liked how in this book Georgia wasn't wimpy anymore like the second book. She was strong, determined, and active in her own defense. Learning more about Zak's past was a great new facet too in this book. I absolutely loved this conclusion.

Eureka!!! At last the penultimate showdown between Zak/Georgia and the big bad has arrived!! Throw in a super powerful in utero baby, pregnancy hormones, a witch or two, prophecy revealed, memories returned.... and you have one amazing book! Angels and vampires and witches oh my!! If you haven't read "FIRST BLADE" and "FIRST WITCH" do NOT pass go, rewind and read them first or you will be completely lost. Trust me it's well worth reading them all!! Lots of action, spell casting, humorous quips a ...more

**NOTE: i hadn't read previous books**
This book was really surprisingly good even without knowing books 1 and 2.
Due to being so fast paced that's really a page-turner book. Georgia with her pregnacy was so real in her way of changing due to pregnacy hormones. I really enjoyed her way of being and that to her pregnacy wasn't some kind of inability. Zak was really sweet with his attitude to Georgia, but sometimes to me he was thinking like she won't be able to do anything when shes pregnat...

This is the last book in the series and am sad to see the stories of Georgia and Zak end. I Loved the nickname Jelly Bean for the baby !!! It was so adorable reading Georgia talking to the baby and the baby responding. Even though the author stated at the end of the book she has spin off stories set maybe for Rys and for Skye, I hope she has one in the simi-future where we see "Jelly Bean" grown up a little more and just how powerful the child is. I received a free copy of this book and voluntee ...more

This is the third book in the series. A good book with a couple of twist some of the good and some bad. I always feel so soory for Georgias sister she has to endure so much. Zak is his usually overprotective self put a baby in the mix and this goes overboard.
Lots of action per usual, a bit of spell casting and funny jabs. Enjoyed this book a lot

I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review, but everything I write is my own opinion.

Mixed feelings on this book as I enjoyed the entire series and Zak and Georgia's relationship throughout. First off it had a great ending to the series and seemed to answer all my questions from previous books. It also made me cry at times because the secondary characters were so well done. I enjoyed this series enough that I hated to see it end even if it was well done. I received and ARC from the author and am giving my voluntary honest review.

This is the conclusion to the Awakening series.
There is plenty of action with Zak and Georgia.
I haven't read the first 2 books in the series, and I strongly
recommend that you read the whole series as it will make more sense.
Hopefully there will be more spinoff books of some of the other characters.
A must read.

I lucked up when I agreed to review for Ms. Hinchey, as a paranormal lover, I was in my element as I rapidly read the end of the series, and hope to read more of her books First Blood is a fast paced read that will keep you on the end of your seat, make you cry, and make you laugh and I surely enjoyed the series!

Georgia and Zach are waiting for Jelly Beans birth, witches start to go missing, the coven splits and so much more. Georgia even gets a power boost from Jelly Bean.
Fast paced, interesting with unique characters. A great ending for Georgia and Zach.
I would highly recommend this book and series

First Blood (ARC) by Jane Hinchey: ***** I loved it - great series finale!
Another winner with a great wrap up to the series! Georgia continues her bad a$$ alpha ways with the love of her life, alpha bad a$$ Zak. Lots of fast paced action, suspense/danger, love/romance, and a fantastic HEA. Disclosure: I am voluntarily reviewing an ARC of this book.

Super fantastic. What a shame, it's the last book of the series. I enjoyed it immensely. Just couldn't put it down. The good thing is I can still get more books in the future for this author. Received an ARC.
