Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it

5 stars!

Perfect ending to this trilogy!

Brave is the third book in the Wicked Saga, you need to have read Wicked and Torn before reading this book. So there may be spoilers about the other two books in this review, but no spoilers about this book specifically. Ivy has escaped the fae Prince Drake, being rescued by Ren and some good fae. Now she lives in a good fae haven, dealing with some serious PTSD from being held captive. Pulling away from her friends and loved ones, Ivy retreats into herse
This title is quite funny because we all know wich Disney character Ivy looks like 😉 (*ahem* Merida)

3.5 STARS (de toda la trilogía)
En general no fue un mal final, la pase bien en varios momentos. Tink tuvo bromas realmente memorables de Game of Thrones 😂
Solo que tengo sentimientos encontrados con mi opinión de la trilogía , el primero me gusto bastante pero desde mi punto de vista la serie fue tomando rumbos un tanto pareci

I got a little bored with this one. There were some interesting twists in the plot and Ivy and Ren's relationship is as steamy as ever. It was funny and dramatic, but... I don't know, it just wasn't as compelling as the first book. Maybe if I had read the series back-to-back I would feel differently, but I guess I lost interest in this storyline over the years. Tink is still one of my favorite characters, though.

He puesto fin a una de mis sagas favoritas (aunque quiero leer las historias que han salido después, pero la historia de Ivy, Ren y Tink acaba aquí) y no sabéis lo triste que me pone esto. Y sin duda, son mis libros favoritos de la autora con mucha diferencia, y eso que amo cada libro que ha escrito y he leído de ella.
Debo decir, que como final esperaba más, por eso el 4 y no el 5. Creo que el segundo libro tiene muchísimo más potencial que este final y que en ciertos momentos ha sido muy pausa
I don't know what rating to give this book because I half-listen to the audiobook. I didn't give the narration my full attention since, for whatever reason, I had lost interest in this story. I am not sure exactly why I lost interest, it might have been because I had to wait to read this third installment until its publication date and I usually prefer to read all the books in a series one right after the other. I am not sure, but I the thing is that I just didn't care for it so I don't think it ...more

It took me forever and a hot day to get started on Brave because the end of trilogy always induces INSANE amounts of anxiety in my body. There was most definitely some bad but mostly good moments that makes JLA's writing bomb.

I could see where this book was going. Jen probably wanted to focus on building Ivy and Ren's relationship and that in of itself took up nearly half the book! Good character development all around but it kind of lagged after while...

Un gran final para esta trilogía, aunque tal vez me faltó un final mas cerrado...
Adoro con todo mi corazón a Tink y solo espero que algún día le de por sacar su historia porque yo los leería fijo :D

Well, the title should be more like: Foolishly Brave!
The times the author has mentioned Ivy’s - “Red hair” and Renald’s - “Green eyes” – I think I couldn’t find any more adjectives if I had to describe them. 5% of each part of the whole three parts? It is been mentioned! *sighs*
And ugh that plot-twist! And dude that ending kind of sucks! How can you like leave it at that?

Brave es el tercer libro de la saga A Wicked Trilogy y el ultimo en narrar la historia de Ivy y Ren, puesto que las siguientes novelas tendran unos protagonistas diferentes.

Personalmente, creo que cualquier lectura de Jennifer L. Armentrout que elijas es un acierto seguro, es una autora que siempre consigue atraparte con lo que escribe, que siempre crea novelas amenas y entretenidas y lo mejor de todo es que es una escritora muy versatil, se atreve con cualquier genero y en todos consigue encant

Sadly this was a bit of a disappointing end to this otherwise excellent trilogy. I was so annoyed for the first half of the book, listening to the main character constantly whine and moan really took its toll and severely affected my enjoyment of this book! It did get quite a bit better after the halfway mark when things finally got interesting and the complaining was done with.

Brave empieza a tropiezos, tiene un desarrollo espectacular y un final un tanto abrupto y que te deja con una sensación de incertidumbre (en otras palabras: el final es bastante abierto).
Tiene mucho romance, más atrevido también que el romance que aparece en los demás libros de Fantasía de Armentrout (de hecho, toda la saga es así), pero también se centra en los hechos y en lo que va a suceder, ahora que el mundo está en las puertas del apocalipsis.
Me encanta su relación con Ren :)

Hopefully, after I read Torn, I have to wait only a year for Brave (ideally less than a year . . . preferably tomorrow . . . but less than a year is fine with me . . . please, please, please don't make me wait any longer . . . I will want Brave so badly . . . and am I the only who randomly thought about the Disney movie?)

He pasado muchos nervios con esta novela y debo decir que ese final... menudo final de trilogía! Me hubiese gustado algo un poco más cerrado, pero me ha parecido algo diferente y me ha llamado la atención. Sigo adorando a Tink! La autora consigue darle un toque de humor a la novela con ciertos personajes, que son adorables. El inicio se me hizo algo lento y pesado, pero eso solo duro un par de capítulos, luego no he podido parar de leer. Y con esto cierro una saga con la que no empecé con buen p ...more

Actual rating for this book should be 4 stars, but I gave it a bit more out love for the hole trilogy and the author.

You know that moment when you're so excited about something you can't wait for it to happen, only to be kind of disappointed and with it? This book was like that.

Don't get me wrong, I very much liked this book. It had tons of action, sexy moments, laugh out loud scenes and betrayals. I don't regret reading it and it was an amazing sequel in this series.

4 stars!

Exciting, sexy, emotional, funny and romantic, this is a great finish for the trilogy!

The book begins with Ivy still reeling from the events of the previous book. She is lost and struggling to come to terms with all that she’s been through and what it means to her now, and it leaves her confused, distracted grief-stricken and withdrawn. It’s an emotional and angsty time as she pulls away from everybody, but she’s a strong girl, and she has Ren and Tink by her side as she works through it

3 1/2 "Together we're better." Stars!

So this will be an overall series quick review. But I did enjoy this one the best. The ending was worth the reading investment of a trilogy.

So overall I enjoyed this series. Ren was the highlight and Ivy was the... lowlight... :-/. I loved him and mostly she was annoying. I think the dialect in this series was a bit immature. Especially for the severity of the situation they often found themselves in. But I really like this take on the fae and found this stor

Questa è stata una serie un po' sofferta, per me. I libri sono usciti con un notevole distacco tra loro. Un distacco che ho sentito fortemente. Quest'ultimo libro mi ha leggermente spiazzata. Ivy Morgan è stata torturata, ha commesso delle azioni orribili e ora che è al sicuro non riesce a far altro che vivere nell'oscurità. Un'oscurità che, per chi conosce Ivy, sa che non le appartiene. Se nei libri precedenti abbiamo conosciuto una ragazz

Troisième et dernier tome de l’histoire d’Ivy et Ren, nous retrouvons le couple dans une situation difficile après le traumatisme qu’ils ont vécu.

Από τους καλύτερος τρόπους για να κλείσει μια ακόμη χρόνια.
Η Jennifer Armentrout με έχει κακομάθει τόσα χρόνια που διαβάζω βιβλία της. Η αλήθεια είναι πως μετά το Torn, το 2ο βιβλίο της σειράς wicked ήμουν κάπως επιφυλακτική. Δεν ήξερα τι να περιμένω. Είχα απογοητευτεί λίγο με τις εξελίξεις και το πόσο προβλέψιμα ήταν όλα. Ήρθε όμως το Τζενάκι και μου έφερε ένα βιβλίο αντάξιο του 1ου. Γεμάτο δράση και ανατροπές. Με βασικούς ήρωες που τα σπάνε.

Brave is the third and final (I think) installment in Jennifer's Wicked Saga and it was a very fitting ending. I loved the first book in the series, but was a tad disappointed in Torn so I was a little apprehensive starting Brave, but I needn't have worried. Jennifer isn't one of my all-time fave authors for nothing.

Ivy isn't in a great place when we catch up to her, not surprising after the ordeal she suffered at Prince Drake's hand in the last book. Ren is amazingly patient with her, even if I

La tercera y - se supone - última parte de la trilogía Cazadora de Hadas cierra la serie con un final inesperado y sorprendente, aunque no del todo cerrado, que te deja con un sabor agridulce pero satisfactorio. Ivy ha evolucionado muchísimo desde el primer libro y, aunque ya era una guerrera entonces, ahora es toda una superheroína. Es fuerte, pero también frágil, es decidida, valiente y buena, pero para nada perfecta. Tiene muchos defectos, pero lucha para enmendar sus errores. Y tiene un cora ...more

Due stelline e mezza.
Purtroppo ho trovato la prima metà del libro estremamente noiosa e frustrante (inutile a livello di trama orizzontale), e la seconda affrettata e insoddisfacente.
Il tutto riempito da scene di sesso a volte completamente inutili e imbarazzanti, che mi facevano alzare gli occhi al cielo.
Personaggi nuovi non caratterizzati, con la personalità di un sasso, e colpi di scena buttati lì per far succedere qualcosa. Giusto per.
Mi dispiace ma con questo la Armentrout ha toppato. Pec

okay so i’m legit waiting patiently here…..

so can i get a freaking date please? with a brownie on top?

i desperately need more Tinky Tink in my life, gaaah


Well, well, well..... I actually find the title to be endearing, *cough* *cough*

the anticipation is killing me and my FEELS are drowning me….



This first part of this book was really slow, dealing with Ivy’s PTSD after being captured. The last part of this book was rushed, trying to get in the rest of the plot. The ending was odd, and came from out of nowhere. I just felt like the pacing was really off on this book.

Also, is the series over? It didn’t really feel like it is, but maybe Ivy and Ren’s story is over but the world isn’t?

Tink is hilarious and gets all my stars.

I think this is a strong case of ‘it’s not you, it me.’

I like to think that over these past few years I’ve grown a lot as a reader and as a reviewer.

I used to only read heterosexual romances.

I used to lean away from books with male protagonists.

I used to hate third person perspectives and want to read only in first person perspectives.

I used to force myself to finish a book/series even if I was hating it.

And the truth is, all of these things? None of them are really true anymore.

E con "In fuga da te" finisce la trilogia Wicked della Armentrout, autrice che non mi delude mai a prescindere da quel che scrive.
La serie è del genere paranormal/fantasy new adult, con la presenza delle creature che più di tutte mi affascinano: le fate. E Ivy e Ren, i protagonisti, si trovano proprio a contatto fra il mondo mortale e quello del popolo fatato.

In fuga da te è il terzo e conclusivo romanzo della Wicked Saga, una serie fantasy new adult con protagonisti cacciatori e creature fatate affascinanti, a volte buone, altre cattive ma quasi sempre pericolose.
Per leggere e comprendere questo romanzo è necessario aver letto in precedenza Lontano da Te e Ritorno da Te, infatti la storia riprende esattamente da dove l'avevamo interrotta.

Incoherent moaning and rambling coming:

Was Ivy always this annoying, nails on a chalkboard annoying? I really enjoyed book one, book two was quite good and as you can see, book three was a glaring disappointment. The story line was a chaotic, frantic mess with a plot that just seemed to bounce from drama to drama. There seemed to be a lack of coherent over-riding plot in my opinion, almost like it lacked planning.

The dialogue and monologue of Ivy was irritating to the extreme. I didn't even feel

Slowly, his gaze lifted to me. “I’m looking at you, Sweetness. Always am, even when my eyes aren’t on you.”
