4 stars!

Exciting, sexy, emotional, funny and romantic, this is a great finish for the trilogy!

The book begins with Ivy still reeling from the events of the previous book. She is lost and struggling to come to terms with all that she’s been through and what it means to her now, and it leaves her confused, distracted grief-stricken and withdrawn. It’s an emotional and angsty time as she pulls away from everybody, but she’s a strong girl, and she has Ren and Tink by her side as she works through it all.

“I still love you. I’m still right here with you.”

And she needs to do it quickly, because the fae Prince is still out to wreak havoc on the world, and it’s up to Ivy, Ren, their fae allies, and a mysterious stranger, to save the day.

I don’t want to say anything about the story because there are twists and turns as it all unfolds and it’s exciting, fun and surprising, with lots of action and a whole lot of supernatural badassery going down and I couldn’t flip pages fast enough. There’s a nice amount of emotion as it all plays out, too, with Ivy dealing with big changes in her life, as well as facing up to the fight ahead with strength and determination.

“You are so many amazing things, Ivy, but most of all, you are so damn brave.”

And, of course, the romance is absolutely gorgeous as Ivy and Ren’s relationship shifts and changes, their passion for each other continues to sizzle (hot damn!), and their love for each other is beautiful to see.

“I’m looking at you, Sweetness. Always am, even when my eyes aren’t on you.”

And Tink continues to be a complete scene stealer – bringing not only his own version of badass, but also some much-appreciated humour. I freaking love that brownie!

Tink was there … Slung over his shoulder was a…Wonder Woman backpack. I parted from Ren, walking up to him. “Where did you get that?”
“I stole it from a little fae girl.” He paused. “Hashtag thug life.”

The book finishes off The Wicked Saga well, bringing lots of twists and turns but still managing to close off the main storylines, while leaving the door open for more, with a spin-off novella coming soon that I can’t wait to get my hands on!

This was a fun read, and fans of the trilogy will not be disappointed with this big finale. It’s not my favourite read by this author, but it is proof of why JLA remains one of my favourite writers of YA/NA paranormal romance.

4 stars.
