In the final book of the Witchblood series we find Jess and her friends ten years on, about to battle with enemies on all sides, as the supernatural world crashes into the human domain.
With everybody’s lives on the line Jess will need to work out who she can trust before a deadly witch hunt threatens to uncover them all. Death and love will once again consume her life, but only one side can win.
This is the fifth and final book in the Witchblood series. I loved it!
Jess James is a wonderful character. I have enjoyed watching her growth from an angst ridden teen to a formidable vampire and witch (or Vitch as Brittany calls her). It's now ten years later. Jess and Daniel are still very much in love. However, trouble is brewing on the horizon. The supernatural world is threatened with exposure. Can Jess and the gang stop it in time?
This story hooked me from the first page and I read this book in one sitting. I must admit that I have missed these characters, as they have become friends. Not only do we meet with the previous characters of the series, such as Brittany, Daniel, Eva, Sebastian, Luke and Saffy (to name but a few), Leo and Brooke from WitchFire also make an appearance.
The story took me on a rollercoaster ride of emotion from beginning to end. The story is full of action and danger. I loved the way the story unfolded; there are several twists and turns that surprised me. There are also several fight scenes. However, there was one that was extremely intense and had me sitting on the edge of my seat. There is also a huge twist that I didn't see coming, it left me in tears. I won't say whether they were happy or sad ones, as that would be a spoiler. I reached the end of the story with bittersweet feelings. This series has been a journey into a unique world of vampires, witches and angels. It has been an absolute pleasure to read and I am sad that it has come to an end. However, all good things must come to an end and I am now looking forward to finding out what the author comes up with next.
Emma Mills has written a fast paced story that flows beautifully. It is also a masterpiece of originality. I have never read anything like it before. This author is on my favourite authors' list and I will read any book written by her in the future.
I highly recommend this YA Paranormal Romance if you love stories with vampires, witches and angels. - Lynn Worton
