Are you ready for the big Finale??

An epic conclusion of the series, the anticipation of what is going to happen with the plot been evolving steadily kept me in my seat 'till I finally reached the very last page of the book.

The ninth storyline is being told from Cain's and Olivia's point of view, it was nice to finally meet Cain and to learn his personality he always got my attention and without a doubt I can say that he is a multidimensional character and he is filled with mystery it was re
I was gifted my copy direct from the author, that I write a review was not required but I darn well gotta!!

Book 9 in this series, and you really REALLY should read all the other books, in order, to get the full picture. You need to know what Godfrey has book up to and what has happened to Cain's team along the way. Much is referenced to from previous books, and you need to know what happened.

AND because I bloody well said so!!

She captures his attention in a way no woman has for years. There has

Man, the 9th and final book of the Seven Forbidden Arts series was an intriguing novel. Cain Jones, the leader of the paranormal crime task force got his story and it did not disappoint.
Charmaine Pauls gave us a story that was gripping and had you on the edge of your seat. Filled with action, suspense and romance this paranormal novel will have you turning the pages to find out what happens next.
Cain and Olivia had a chemistry that burned through the pages of the book. I loved both Cain and Ol

This is the ninth and concluding book in the Seven Forbidden Arts Series. I loved it!

Cain Jones is a fascinating character. Although he appears in nearly every book of the series, he remains largely mysterious. I am glad the author decided to use the final book in the series to focus on him. He is the boss of the paranormal task force and oversees the team on behalf of his sponsors. He is also instrumental in playing matchmaker to his team (although they don't know it). Cain and his team have be

Man - Seven Forbidden Arts #9 by Charmaine Pauls

Rating 5 off the Chart Stars

ARC from author

Loved this book !!!! This is the final book in the Seven Forbidden Arts Series. Each reads as a complete standalone but I just happened to have read (first) Loving the Enemy (a prequel full length novel of the Seven Arts series ) & then Man. So I have LOTS to discover & read in between - but really loved both of these books.

An explosive, gripping, highly imaginative conclusion to the series…

This is the ninth and final book in the Seven Forbidden Arts series. The reading is enhanced if you’ve read most of the previous books.

Battling a deadly enemy that has eluded him for too long, Cain Jones, leader of the paranormal taskforce finally has a promising lead and it’s a mission he takes on personally, to monitor the wife of his enemy. The woman he finds is unexpected, she’s beautiful, sexy and a loner with no apparent c

Man, oh Man, what to say about this - the bittersweet finale to the Seven Forbidden Arts series. In this instalment, we finally get some hands on knowledge of Cain, the enigmatic leader. He is getting closer to Godfrey, and now has Godfrey's wife in his sights - quite literally. However, Olivia isn't what he was expecting, and she calls to him in ways long forgotten.

The whole crew is here, with twists and turns still coming. This is no 'take it slow' finale, no way. It's full of action, tense, w

In this final installment of the Forbidden Arts series, we finally get to know Cain, the leader of the supernatural team we learn to love through all the books. His mission is to lure his enemy's wife, Olivia. He will try to convince her to help them to kill Godfrey once and for all. However, as he spies on her, he becomes attracted to this woman that is not just his nemesis' wife.

I always wanted to know more about Cain, he was this mysterious character behind the curtains. He is always making c

What an incredible finale! I must admit that after an nine-book journey, I approached this grand finale with trepidation. Will all the time and emotional investment be worth it? Wow! Thank goodness, YES! YES! YES!

Cain Jones is the Commander of the top secret paranormal Forbidden Arts task force. The Forbidden Arts team is poised for a final showdown with their arch nemesis, Godfrey Reid, a sociopathic megalomaniac who has been trying to steal each of the seven Arts in his plan to take over the w

Explosive end to an action packed series. Finally see Cain lose his careful control with Olivia coming into the picture. I read this in less than a day, and just when I thought the final showdown had occurred, everything kicked up a notch. Highly recommended.
