It’s time to meet my destiny.

And that is how you end a saga, ladies and gentlemen!!

I know that this isn't really a fantasy romance series, but I have to tell you this... I lived for Carrick and Finley. Their epic love made every hardship, every loss, every twist, and every obstacle extremely worthwhile.

After the huge betrayal revealed at the end of the last book, I had no idea where this story was going to go. With Kymaris gaining so much, having everything she needed to begin the destruction of Earth as we

Sawyer said it would be epic, and it absolutely was. Every swoon, every OMG, every hardship, every plot twist was worth it. I can’t remember loving a paranormal series so much since Karen Marie Moning’s first books of Fever over a decade ago.

This book picks up where A Battle of Blood and Stone left off and it’s a phenomenal conclusion to the series. If you love paranormal/fantasy romance you need to read the entire series. Every book is fast paced, has its own share of action and romance, ma

I can't believe this series over... Such a great conclusion to Finley and Carrick's story. A love so strong, not even death could separate them. As that has been tested time and time again.

The big fight is finally here and the whole book is in preparation for it. And hopefully to find other ways to thwart the demise of the world without having to lose anyone in the process.

I don't want to touch on too much of what happens since this is the final book. There's definitely some story arcs I would h

"4- We're in the endgame now- Stars!"

The Rise of Fortune and Fury is the last book in the "Chronicles of the Stone Veil" paranormal -urban-fantasy romance series.

This series was epic in the sense that Garrett and Finley's story started hundreds of years ago, and has continued in some form right up until the present date.

You name it, this book has it.
There are gods, demi-gods, warlocks, angels, demons, and light & dark fae.

What an epic conclusion to the series!

I have to start off by saying this ending was phenomenal! It was everything I hoped for and much more. This series started out slow for me but with each book I fell deeper into the world of unknowns and craved more. With every twist and turn I was caught in the web of fae's, Deamon's, Demigod's, and human's with special powers, it was a mystical escape from reality and I loved it.

This book picks up right where the last one left off, I would highly recommend

I have loved every book in this series, and the finale was more than worthy of capping off what was a thoroughly enjoyable, wild ride. Spanning centuries and multiple worlds, this series was simply nothing short of epic.

The entire series has been building up to this point. Kymaris is prepared to rip the veil between earth and the Underworld and let in the demons and dark fae. The human world is unaware of the peril it is in as Finley works to hone her powers to do battle with the Queen of the Un

Fantastic Finale

I can honestly say that I did not want this series to end. Even though my life has been overwhelmingly busy, whenever I have had the opportunity to pick up my book and dive in for an escape, I took it. This wonderful world created by Ms Sawyer Bennett is one of my favorite places to visit. The cast of characters have become my book family and I will cherish them always. Finley and Carrick are definitely up there as one of my favorite couples and the rest of the "Scooby Gang" are

This was the shortest book in the series, I think, and it probably took me the longest to read. It was a struggle to finish and I'm so happy to be done with this series. I loved the Sugar Bowl series by Sawyer Bennett (Sugar Daddy), but her take on the paranormal romance/fantasy genre isn't great. The world-building is just messy and full of holes; the characters are annoying and the main plot of the prophecy is just boring and dragged out. What really bugged me is how there is no real

The Rise of Fortune and Fury by Sawyer Bennett
Chronicles of the Stone Veil #5

The conclusion of a series is always bittersweet. Having gotten to know the main characters, invested in them, rooted for them, followed them, and wondered how the prophecy would play out…well…it was sad to say goodbye to them although it was also nice to know what finally happened to them in the end. I believe this is the end of this series but can also see that there could be a spinoff if the author were so inclined.

5 Star review of The Rise Of Fortune and Fury (Chronicles of the Stone Veil #5) by Sawyer Bennett

This fantasy/paranormal series is one I have no hesitation in recommending and that is saying something as this is not a genre I would normally read. This is the fifth and final book in the series and if you have not read the other four books I would suggest you stop and do so as this series needs to be read in order to maximize the reading experience.

This is probably the most anticipated book of the year for me — but also the most dreaded one as it means this PHENOMENAL journey with Finley and Carrick is over!

The battle is almost here, and the Scooby gang is ready to fight! But will they win? What about Finley and her sacrifice?!

As with all 4 books before, Sawyer Bennett had me on edge from the beginning until the very end! If you think you know what’s going to happen - you’ll be proofed wrong! Oh so wrong! The aut

This story didn't need five books.

I guess that's the short version of my opinion of this series. It simply didn't need five books. In my first review, I talked about this series' potential. I thought my 3.5 rating would improve once the plot kicked in. It didn't.

The main character we got to know in the first book didn't develop, but rather just... disappeared. The parts I loved about her - the independence, the ambition, the struggles of living with a gift that the world had always considered

Carrick knows that the time is getting closer. Finley is getting answers. This is the book you do not want to miss. If you have been following the series, you have to find out what all the other books have been leading up to.

I have to say that this was the book where I really slowed down my reading. Knowing that this was the last in the series was part of that. In my mind, if I slowed things down then the story wouldn’t come to an end. But the other side wanted to know what was

This book is everything and talk about a phenomenal end to the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series! The Rise of Fortune and Fury is the epic conclusion to Finley and Carrick’s story and it did not disappoint. This novel moves at a fast pace and is full of suspense, intrigue, action, and romance and of course a few twists that will keep you on your toes. True to this author’s previous works in the series, the world building within the pages is nothing short of spectacular and the character develo ...more

This is the 5th and final book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil and it’s the perfect conclusion to this wonderful series, if I’m totally honest this is not a genre I’m drawn to but this series captivated me as I fell in love with the characters and their journey. I also have to say please make sure you read the previous books before picking this one up.

Oh me, oh my. So much drama, so much action. What with the Gods’ meddling, the Queen of the Dark Fae gathering her army, and the very real threat of the Underworld taking over Earth, my heart was in my mouth throughout. I so did not want history to repeat itself with Finley and Carrick. I was praying for Finley to be the first to defy the curse whilst bringing down Kymaris and saving the world.

Action packed suspense filled ending featuring Finley Porter and her friends. Watching her grow through each book has been fascinating for me.

I rarely read paranormal so I’m so glad I gave this series a go because I have really enjoyed it and I’m sad to see it end. I’m hoping that Sawyer Bennett gives us some stories from some of the side characters.

This story ended on a high. It was a fast paced story that was packed full of drama and action that kept me guessing and on the edge o& my seat. Lets not forget this story also covered an epic love story between Finley and Carrick and I loved how their journey panned out.

***This review is for the complete series***

I normally read contemporary romance, but I like to break up the monotony with paranormal stories. Although I would highly recommend this series to someone that normally doesn't read paranormal since it felt very contemporary in a sense; because daemons and fae were living among humans and using glamour to hide their appearance. Only our heroine, Finley, who's human has the ability to see through their glamour. So think, Buffy, Supernatural, or True B

4.5 stars--THE RISE OF FORTUNE AND FURY is the fifth and final instalment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult CHRONICLES OF THE STONE VEIL paranormal/fantasy romance series focusing on twenty-eight year old Finley Porter, and Carrick Byrne. THE RISE OF FORTUNE AND FURY should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up after the events and cliff hanger of book four A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE.

NOTE: If you have not read the previous instalments, there may be spoilers in my review.

OMG!!! What an ending and all the things I didn’t see coming. Just WOW! I was looking forward to getting my hands on this book because I was dying to see what will happen on the day of the ritual but now that is out there, I just realize that I am not ready to let go of this series. There are still too many things I want to know. So, the question are we going to get more of the series?
