Sam | 1052 comments I loved this book. It was a fantastic end to the series.

I really enjoyed how they wrapped up the whole Roland thing. I was worried that (view spoiler)

Scenes I loved: (view spoiler)

I will miss the series but I'm also sort of happy that they are finishing with it. Maybe they'll create another series for us to love. I absolutely adore their Hidden Legacy and Innkeeper series. Still haven't finished the Edge series as I am dragging it out. It'll be interesting to see what their minds come up with now. Or maybe they'll just take a well earned vacation.

Steph (angel4492) | 29495 comments So glad to hear that, Sam! I've got mine, but haven't started it yet. I'm excited to get started yet saddened it'll be the end. But, like you, I'm certain they'll create more to love.


Nerdy Werewolf (nerdywerewolf) | 217 comments I started mine last night. !!!


Danielle Book Boss (daniellebookboss) | 1009 comments I started yesterday as well! I'm trying to hold out because if I don't start, then it won't have to end...but it just kept calling me lol

I know, right? I finished two other books I was reading last night so I could start with a clean slate. It came time to open this one and instead I started looking through my library for something else!

Of course, I realized eventually that I couldn't put it off any longer, but it didn't stop me trying!!

Steph (angel4492) | 29495 comments LOL! I crumbled this morning and started reading. I made it 35% in and made myself stop, put it down and walk away. It was difficult.

Lis | 3654 comments I couldn't wait and devoured this last week.... And I Loved it!!! Great finish... was very pleased with the wrap up. All the fav support characters were present and a few surprise ones too. There were some fun moments (love that toddling baby....), the sarcasm and a few sad ones too. This writing team really knows how to create a wonderful story and even gave us a hint of a tickler for upcoming possibilities. Can't wait!

Favorite line(s) has to be anything Curran said to Kate that ended with " ... Ass kicker"

I'm trying to look at this not as an ending but a starting point for several spinoff series options...

I finished mine a few days ago and I mainly feel the same way. I'm in awe of how well done the ending/new beginning was presented. It felt so complete, satisfying and correct.

My only real gripe had to be: (view spoiler)

I adored everything about Conlan. He was the star of the show, for sure!

I have so much to add to this, but it will have to wait until tomorrow...to be continued!

Regarding the Conlan (view spoiler)

I think Kate as a helicopter parent is the funniest thing in this book. And Doolittle was like Kate he had a little scratch and she was like I didn't want it to get infected and I'm just imagining the tiniest of papercuts ever lolol

Also do you think (view spoiler)


message 16: by Lis (new) - rated it 5 stars

Lis | 3654 comments Yep, that is the fun part of this series I will miss... those sarcastic occurrences that they reference as a side note.... Her helicopter momming was too funny.


message 17: by Sam (new) - rated it 4 stars

Sam | 1052 comments When I read the epilogue, I thought (view spoiler)

I do think the epilogue is setting us up for a potential spin off series. It won't take place in Hugh's books, since all those books take place before the big battle.

As for Conlan (view spoiler)


Nerdy Werewolf (nerdywerewolf) | 217 comments Okay, offshoot topics!

That epilogue conversation: (view spoiler)

The Hugh books:(view spoiler)

The end setup: (view spoiler)

Ascanio: (view spoiler)

Conlan: (view spoiler)

I have far too many thoughts.


kittykat AKA Ms. Tortitude | 362 comments Can't wait to get to it (well ish! I'm bingeing the series but don't want to get to the end too soon lol)... am on Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels, #3.5) by Ilona Andrews but this thread keeps popping up in my feed (mainly because I won't shut it down!)...


Nerdy Werewolf (nerdywerewolf) | 217 comments Hah! That's because there's SO much to talk about. Jump in when you get there-even if it takes a little while. :) I'd love to know your thougths on everything!

I know... I often wonder if authors or their admins browse comments like these and laugh because we over complicate or over think their intentions. LOL

I have way too many thoughts too. But I really enjoy a good series and storyline.


Nerdy Werewolf (nerdywerewolf) | 217 comments Haha! What if they do? They'd probably all get a good chuckle...

Two more Hugh/Elara books, and they are talking about at least one Roman book.

I personally would like to see a Beau book. I know he's a regular human, but that would be fun to see, because we know he manages to thrive among all the magic.

My first thought when I finished this book? "I want a baby werelion!" :)


kittykat AKA Ms. Tortitude | 362 comments My thoughts to come...

But until then
