This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
Calla has always welcomed war.
But now that the final battle is upon her, there’s more at stake than fighting. There’s saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay’s wrath. There’s keeping Ansel safe, even if he’s been branded a traitor. There’s proving herself as the pack’s alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers’ magic once and for all. And then there’s deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is. In this remarkable final installment of the Nightshade trilogy, international bestselling author Andrea Cremer crafts a dynamic novel with twists and turns that will keep you breathless until its final pages.
Talk about an ending that will screw up an entire series! I’m not even sure what to say really. We got a decent amount of action and plot twists here and there and it was actually interesting for the most part. I could deal with the author’s desperate need to bring Shay into the picture fulltime but I can’t cope with the ending, no way, not a chance!
I don’t understand why Cremer would make such an interesting character that Ren is, and then not use him for anything important. Shay is still a dead character to me; I have absolutely no sympathy or care for him.
I had some issues throughout the book with the plot that sometimes got a little out of hand; I guess the author got a little too excited at times.
The whole series is super easy to read, full of romance and addresses young girls that likes an epic love story rather than a kick ass female heroine that thinks for herself. The series had so much potential to be more than just “that” however, it failed miserably. I’m sad, because I truly wanted to like this trilogy.
I think the younger you are, the more you’ll enjoy this read.
