's review

it was amazing

Previously on Aventurine, book 3... Mari and Ky escape to the past from Logan and into the arms of Mari's father. What an ending right?! That whole entire story was Logan tricking Mari into reconnecting with him, and trapping her, essentially making her his prisoner. All the while his own son, Ky, is trying to help her find a way out and correct the changes Logan made repeatedly to the past. Will they be able to learn how to correct what Logan has done and stop him once and for all? It's the million dollar question!

Oh my bleeping Goddess! This book took a full 180 from the previous one, and landed a standing ovation! The back and forth, twists and turns with the past present and future, had me second guessing what the hell was going on the entire time! It finally dawned on me what this reminded me of, that movie with Ashton Kutcher, The Butterfly Effect! Every time Mari didn't end up staying with him, Logan would go back in the past and change something to try and force the outcome into his favor. Psycho much? Despite the fact that this evil little bastard knew Mari was in love with and destined to be with Seth, he still tried, like the little engine that could... it was sad, and pathetic.

I loved the fact that once Mari was back in the past she was reunited with her mother, and father (the one she never met and didn't even know who he was!), Seth, Ty, and Dee, yay! Together they were a force to be reckoned with. Ky was also with them, since once he chose Mari's side he couldn't be caught by Logan. Now that all the players are in position, the story adds a twist, with a dash of danger that I was not expecting. I love how it all came together in such an adrenaline rush, and ended just the right way. I'm sad to see the end, but happy about how it did. This series is a definite must read for all YA Fantasy book lovers!

Narrator Review
Hollie Jackson narrates the last installment to this epic fantasy! I loved Hollie from Carnelian, Book 1 of the Chalcedony Chronicles. She is a really talented narrator, and I hope to hear from her again very soon!
