I was sent this book as an advanced copy for reviewing purposes, but all opinions are my own.

3.5 stars

The conclusion to this series felt very different from the first three books and I can say I’m fairly satisfied with how everything turned out.

The thing I loved the most was the new Age of Magic and seeing how technology and magic and different creatures interacted in this new alternate reality that was created by the destruction of the Society of Wishes. Also the new world politics were int

*Contented sigh*

This was a fitting ending to this series. When I think back to the other three books, we covered a lot of territory but it was all nice wrapped up in this last book.

In particular, I thought the scene in Pan's castle was brilliant! Talk about a crazed lunatic! LOL. But I digress.

No, the climax and resolution were very satisfying and the Epilogue from Takako's POV was a nice touch to leave open the "possibility/guarantee" of another series.

Nicely done you two :)

This series just got better and better with each and every book. The whole storyline was so unique and it just sticks with you. I think one of my favorite things that happened in this book was that the whole team seemed to be more involved and you got to really understand each and every one of their powers more uniquely and individually. The whole finale was just action-packed from beginning to end and you just aren’t exactly sure which way it is going to go. The ending just absolutely delivers ...more

"One thing was clear: The root of all of this- all of the hardship they had endured, every wish that had ever been made- was the determination to protect the ones they loves."

3 stars.

The beginning of this book was so amazing and I got so excited to continue, however the ending was definetly lacking. It was wrapped up yes, but I just expected so much more. The struggle in this book and the build-up towards this book was so big, yet it was resolved so quickly. Another this is that I wo

Rounded up to 4, because the writing is just massively addicting, and that deserves the half extra star rating on Goodreads.

Age of magic begins like a tornado. Jo is awake and determined to take Pan down once and for all. But first there is the matter of the society getting back together. There is one, reluctant to aide Jo in saving Snow and taking down Pan.

Takako is pretty much the VIP of the final book this particular series. She is the champion among champion and shows Jo steadfast

I received an e-ARC from the authors in exchange for an honest review.

This was a thrilling ending with a new world rising. How all the team tried to save Snow and that scene with Pan in the castle? The psychotic character was written brilliantly! Takako's POV was a surprise and I know that there will be a new series set in this world so I am very excited!

First of all, I’d like to thank Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh for creating a fantastical world filled with amazing characters. I’d also like to thank them for kindly providing me with an eARC after I missed out on the application. They really made me happy!

Note: this book is part of a series. So if you haven’t read the three books before, I suggest you catch up before reading this review.

Warning: The next part will contain spoilers for the first three books.

I think that this book was by far my favorite out the series.  It cause the word building that we get to see from this book is outstanding.  I love going to high luna and the creepiness of Pan's castle.  The other three books had to happen to set us up for this one so i am in way saying those don't matter.  I just really enjoyed how it all shaped up in this story and that it really took on a life of its own and the change of how the worlds and characters developed from the first book.    The sto ...more

(Disclaimer: I received this free book from the author. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)

Above all, I loved being back with the gang. I have grown so attached to the characters within the Wish Quartet over the last four books. There's something about each of them that I have loved. Whether it be Jo's passion, Samson's quiet nature, or Snow's smokiness. I don't think you can read a series like this, without forming emotional bonds to the characters. Reading Age of Mag
A satisfying finale that is still open ended enough for futures stories set in that universe.

When watching a movie, while the plot & character development is of the vital importance, & the action can and often does keep one glued to his seat, it is the ending that one looks forward to the most. No matter how dier or bittersweet it might turn out to be. Simply for the reason that it's the end that provides answers to all the puzzles and conflicts that arose through the movie.

It's the same with a book. Finishing a story, especially one in a series, is often bittersweet, and it feels so..

This was simply the most disappointing series Elise Kova has ever written. I don't know what role Lynn Larsh had to play in writing this, but two heads were definitively NOT better than one.

In my personal opinion, Elise Kova is wayy better at writing about completely different fictional worlds which had nothing to do with our own (think Air Awaken or The Loom Saga, or even her newest sequel to Air Awaken - Vortex Chronicles). She was able to weave a magical feeling and a sense of mystery so won

Age of Magic was a stunning conclusion to Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh's "Wish Quartet." Plunged into a new Age of Magic, Jo is desperate to find her Wish Society cohorts and take down Pan once and for all... and save the man she loves.

The most breathtaking aspect of this entire series is the world building. Not only is the Society a world in itself, but the different ages (God, Magic, Man) were thoroughly explored. It is incredibly impressive that Kova and Larsh can do justice to so many new times

So Age of Magic to me was an okay finale to a series but one that felt so rushed. That is the best way to describe this whole series to me is rushed.

Age of Magic definitely took on a more fantasy element then the first three books and I enjoyed the setting much more. However we didn't get enough time with this new world. Which wasn't necessarily new to the characters, but it was for the readers. So I just wanted to feel immersed and I felt like I was a patron being rushed out only after just arr

I received a free e-ARC by the authors in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.

After the climatic ending of Birth of Chaos, Jo wakes up in a new world and a new age, an Age of Magic where magical people and creatures thrive in technological advancement. Jo’s first instinct is to find her team from the Society of Wishes. After she quickly gathers her team, her next step is to convince everyone to confront and takedown Pan. Once everyone is on board and they begin to co

Great ending to the series. And a fantastic beginning to a whole new world filled with innumerous possibilities.

This series and I have not gotten on as well as I had hoped. I have not disliked any of them, but neither have I loved any of them. The main problem with this series was my personal feeling towards dystopia and urban fantasy. In general, I am not a huge fan of those, preferring fantasy instead. Despite the fantastic writing and excellent premise, I had a difficult time getting onto the

And this circle is now closed! After the dramatic turn of events in the previous book, I was wondering how everything would wrap up in the final installment. Needless to say, it was intense! But honestly, what can you expect when certain characters are literally Creation, Destruction, and Chaos?

The story moved at a good place, though there were certain places I wished we'd spent more time in. Samson and Eslar got their time in the spotlight, and I couldn't have been more happy to read about Sam

I’ve basically been devouring the Wish Quartet one book at a time, so when the opportunity to read Age of Magic early presented itself, I jumped at it! The author sent me a digital galley of the novel in exchange for this honest review. I don’t remember any specific TW/CWs so let’s dive right on in!

I really liked getting back to the characters, especially Jo. I feel like her character has grown so much since the beginning of the series. She is still, however, white-coded though there were severa
I’m glad I finished the series...

There were some really cool parts to this book. Some new ways to look at the plot I hadn’t anticipated. There were also a few awkwardly placed love scenes. I love fantasy with some romance, but in this installment at least one scene felt forced and, therefore, awkward. Additionally, calling Destruction and Creation by their names also felt weird. I did like that the ending was as expected but didn’t feel like it had to break any rules to make it happen. There wer

Age of Magic is packed with page-turning epicness! The conclusion of Wish Quartet was one of my most anticipated reads for the year. What an adventure! I was super excited after having a glimpse of The Age of Magic world in Birth of Chaos so I dived headfirst into this spectacular creation the first chance I got. I don’t even really know where to begin without spoiling this incredible book. Just know that everything ties off perfectly and there are subtle hints for another series *throws confett ...more

Wow, Jo as a demigod was amazing. The team got back together, some more reluctant than others. I was bummed there wasn't more Snow in this one, but I'm glad that the story remained what it has been about from the beginning. The ending was bittersweet and I'll miss reading about my favorite team. ...more

A great conclusion!

I really enjoyed the conclusion of this series. Kept me on my toes most of the time and no lull like I experienced in #3. A magical ride for sure. I wouldn't be surprised if something new pops up in this world in the future.

This was a satisfying end, overall, just an okay serious - I think there was not enough action or dialogue, it was too much in the main characters head for me to really enjoy.

I loved the narrator! She did such a good job on the characters. She defiantly kept me invested and was enjoyable.
I also loved the story. It was such a neat twist with magic as the source of our ever changing world. I loved the friendships and love story, as always it kept me very engaged to the books.
I would defiantly recommend these books to anyone adult reader who likes magic, a little mythology and some romance.

I can’t quite believe it is over. I am so incredibly amazing the whole series was. And whilst I am so happy to have read and loved it, I am a little sad to be leave the world that Kova and Larsh have created. I cannot wait to see where they go next – in future books.

The world building in Age of Magic is wonderful – I loved every detail and wish I had thousands of pages to explore that world through. The glance of the kingdom of Luana was amazing. The scope of the world that they have created is
