My Thoughts:

This is the LAST book in this series.

I cannot believe that I won't be reading about these characters anymore!

I have been avoiding this book like the plague and I probably wouldn't have finished reading it till next month if not for Fiktshun's reading challenge deadline. Thank you Rachel @ Fiktshun and Shelley @ Tsk Tsk What to Read for the push, I needed it!

It was time to say goodbye to the characters I've come to love and hate over the span of seven books and It was hard! SO HARD!

Tod , Kaylee, Sabine,Emma,Harmony,Nash,Sophie,Luca,Levi,Madeline,Ira,Ben and every single character part of this amazing world... I'M GOING TO MISS YOU!


It's hard to say goodbye and I tried very hard to avoid it but once I started reading I couldn't stop! I finished the entire book in one day i.e yesterday .

 Rachel Vincent pulls you into this amazing world and doesn't let you go till the very end.She leaves you wanting more!

Rachel is an amazing writer. Loads of times books loose their pace and allure as the series progresses and writing a story that goes on for seven books is not easy but she manages to pull it off. The last three books in the series have been AHMAZING and If someone asked me which is the best book in the series I think I'd have to think really hard. There were some(to be exact just two) books in the series that were a little disappointing (Especially Book 4 ) but this is one series I would recommend to almost everyone. The character building is great and the author does not hesitate in breaking the rules.

Character building is important and the characters in this series have depth and are more than just caricatures. The relationships are built beautifully and the emotions felt by the characters are experienced by the reader. I could easily connect and form a relationship with the characters even though I didn't have a lot in common with them.

Kaylee is a strong heroine who uses her brain. She may have come across as love struck and a naive girl in the beginning of the series but she's not one anymore. She's selfless and at times willing to go to any lengths to protect the ones that she loves. In a way she's become wise and has realized that the world works in certain ways. 

Nash is a character I've had a rocky relationship with. I never loved his character. He came across as too sweet and understanding at first and that made me suspicious. My suspicions were justified and there were a lot of things that he did that I hated but I understand his reasons.I don't hate him anymore.

Tod is a character I loved   love. I liked him from the very beginning! He had a minuscule part to play in the first book but this sarcastic and funny guy left his mark.Tod is my favorite character from this series and I think I'm gonna miss him the most.

Sabine is a character that at times I HATED with a vengeance but it's hard to hate someone who speaks the truth and calls out people when they're lying to themselves. I think this is one character that I have grown to like and even love as the series progresses. 

All the secondary characters (there are too many to name) are memorable and have a story to tell and Rachel tells that story beautifully.

I don't want to give away spoilers so I'm not going to write much about the story except for the fact that it was gripping but at times I found it to be predictable.I knew that a particular incident was going to happen and that is why I wasn't surprised when it did but that doesn't mean that the book was boring or didn't hold my interest. Sometimes it's the journey that is important and this is one journey that has had a lot of ups and downs.The final conclusion is one that nobody should miss out on.

Overall, this is one series I think everyone should read. It starts off slowly but keep in mind that character building cannot be rushed.The final conclusion did not disappoint me and that in itself is an achievement. I cannot wait to read another series by Rachel Vincent.Anathema release soon PLEASE!

  12. I can't believe this series is finally coming to an end! seven books is a lot! I haven't read the series yet, myself, but I can absolutely identify with the feeling of sadness of finishing one of your favourite series and having to say goodbye to the characters. So glad you loved this finale so much!

  13. I have never heard of this series before! I'm so glad I saw this review haha. I love paranormal books, so I'm going to have to read this series!

  14. I haven't even begun this series yet, but it does look amazing.

  15. This is my favorite series EVER! It's so unique and addictive, and I adore Rachel's writing style! I miss Tod already! :( I can't believe there'll be no more books. I've heard there will be a bonus novella though, so I can't wait to read it!

  16. I absolutely love this series! It's one of my favorite series ever :) Love Tod!

  17. OMG! That cover is perfect and then "Fans of Twilight will love this" *facepalm*

    I haven't read any of this series so I didn't read your review closely, but the overall feeling is I really must start this series.

    Rie @ Mission to Read

  18. I haven't read it but I've heard great things. Love the covers!

  20. Umm, it is amazing! I stopped after the third book because I saw how many more books were coming and the endings ate me up! But I loved every second of them, and I cannot wait to get the final book and have a Soul Screamers marathon!

  21. i've heard awesome things about this series, but haven't read it. thx for the chance.

  22. I have been wanting to start this series and I always get diverted... I hear some great feedback about the books and now everytime I see someone has read it, I kinda get jealous, oh sigh. Anyway, thanks for the review! :)

  23. Haven't read the series yet but it's been on my TBR list forever. It sounds amazing but when I start, I want to be able to read all books without any interruptions from work so I'll read them when I'm on holiday :)

  24. I have not read this series, but it sounds really good. I'm glad to hear it's over, so I could read all at once, if I get them.
