(Spoilers of you haven't read the previous)

Wendy Everly is facing an impossible choice. The only way to save the Trylle from their deadliest enemy is by sacrificing herself.  If she doesn’t surrender to the Vittra, her people will be thrust into a brutal war against an unbeatable foe.  But how can Wendy leave all her friends behind…even if it’s the only way to save them?

The stakes have never been higher, because her kingdom isn’t the only thing she stands to lose. After falling for both Finn and Loki, she’s about to make the ultimate choice…who to love forever. One guy has finally proven to be the love of her life—and now all their lives might be coming to an end. 

Everything has been leading to this moment.  The future of her entire world rests in her hands—if she’s ready to fight for it.


This book was just....ugh so dang good. I made the mistake of reading the spoilers and at first I was extremely upset, but after reading the book it just made sense. 

Let me start off by saying that there was finally romance. I was swooning. I fell for Loki as well. He is just an amazing character. And, I know when you hear Loki you think of Avengers, but he's supposed to have blond hair and be really strong so I always imagined him as Thor. 

This book wasn't as fast paced as the others, but was even more enjoyable. I would so much love to be swept up into this novel for a day.

The ending to the series was well thought out, and although I was upset at the beginning, it was perfect because all the loose ends got tied up.

I would love to have more in the series, but it was nice that it was a trilogy.
