“I would like to thank Elise Kova for sending me a Review Copy of this book. I reviewed it honestly just liked I promised.”

I can’t believe that the series has come to an end. From the simple librarian we know to a _____ ? haha. If you did read the series from the start you would notice the characters change in maturity level. Their experiences molded them into someone that we will see in Crystal Crowned.

So again CC(Crystal Crowned) started where WW (Water’s Wrath) ended. I could say that the last book is my favorite. I love how selfless and selfish they could get. This time, they do it for the right choices. The pacing is not slow nor fast. Every event unfolds perfectly. Many things have changed and to be honest it is all worth it. The thrill of the war never ceases to amaze me, humor of course caused by the ever handsome Jax is always sprouting in those unexpected situations but it keeps the tension down. HAHA Of course how could I forget the flame and wind lovebird’s fondness for each other is always there and it is for you to find out if it ends or not. HAHA

There are many things that I’ve learned from this last book:

  1. Remember every bit. It is always important. One thing leads to another.
  2. True friendships last longer. It is not about how you met, what gender you are. It is about how you are still there for each other despite all odds.
  3. There’s nothing bad about having humor. Seriously, chill! – Jax
  4. Wickedness was never happiness.
  5. True love could always wait. If it is really yours it would find its way back to you. If not then we must be mature enough to accept on how things don’t work the way we wanted to.

Again I applaud Elise’s way of writing. Honestly I want more of this series like novellas, backstories, sidestories or call it whatever you want. But there’s The Alchemists of Loom(Click to see the cover and synopsis) to look forward to!

Here are my Top 5 lines for this epic series ender. Choosing these lines are hard. *sobs

They no longer hid their love for the other – they embrace it for all to see. (Do you think it is for Fritz or Vhalla?)

Every chance worth taking will make you a little scared. That means you’re taking a risk. And where there is risk, there is a reward.

We will always have our tiffs; even the best couples do. What matters to me is that you come to me and I go to you. That we embrace love more than hate.

It is not too late for everyone still breathing. We fight for them. We honor the dead with a commitment to the living.

No matter how much they lost, they still had each other.
