13–Kelley Armstrong

Holy. Mother. Of. Sanity.

This book was a rollercoaster of emotion, adventure, and worry.

You know when you reach the end of a series and you just know, you just know that the author is going to eviscerate all your loved ones? How could they ALL survive what’s going to happen? They can’t. They just simply can’t.

Everyone has already lost so, so much, and then this book comes along and it’s the end of the series. (Although Kelley has promised that she’s not done writing their adventures in short story compilations, graphic novels, or novellas.)

This book was by far the most brilliantly written of the lot. She tied everything and everyone together so wonderfully at the end that I felt like crying just from how great that was to see in writing.

Everyone is back, and the way she wrote out the chapters was exactly what I needed. She made sure you got to see everybody, say your goodbyes, see them at their best and their worst, and just all around action packed like they have never been before.

This was the most well formed “Goodbye” I’ve ever read of a series.

(Okay, it’s tied with Harry Potter, but you get what I’m saying.)

You not only get to hear from your favourite characters, but you get to hear from Kelley herself as she writes us a foreword and a final note. It was beautiful. Just beautiful.

So great, I don’t even know what to do with myself.

Constant vigilance.

Spellbound–Kelley Armstrong

Another Savannah-centric book, and I really loved it. I think I just understand where are her worries and fears come from and that makes me really get her.

Plus she is also sarcastic and sassy and doesn’t take anybodies shit, so I love that about her too.

Although she can hold her own, her best friend, and potential lover hopefully someday, Adam, is sticking by her side like glue.

The reason? Savannahs spells were taken away when she made the “terrible” mistake of wishing that she would give them up if it meant helping a little girl and her grandmother.

Doesn’t really sound like Savannah, but she’s growing as a person and showed signs of this sort of things early on in the last book. (She used to be a petulant child who thought sneakily torturing humans was funny because she was, quite obviously, superior to them.)

In this book, her spells have vanished which means that she needs to learn to fight without them. Hell, she needs to learn how to live normally without them because they aren’t showing any signs of coming back.

There is an oncoming storm afoot, all our favourites are in danger.

Stayed tuned for the final novel in the series.
