It was alright. I loved the first 2 books but this one had a lot of self pity and whining.

There were plot twists and turns you never expected! I waited, for what seemed like forever for the final book to come out and I wasn't disappointed with it. Great read!
I’m a fan of JL Armentrout, her Covenant series are my all time favourite YA books and I thoroughly enjoyed her many other works too (despite the often poor editing, relentlessly repeated and overused phrases, cliches and textbook characters). But this whole series was way below par, and the third instalment was simply a chore to get through.
Where do I start? The narration was mediocre at best. Amy kept mixing up who she wanted to give voice to, accents and tones were all over the place. Her males are cheesy and her impersonations inconsistent.
One of the biggest shockers was the sudden name change of a rather important character: David of the first 2 books suddenly became Daniel, I mean, come on, how do you forget what you called the order’s New Orleans leader, Jennifer??? And how much is the editor that didn’t pick up on it make in a month, because I totally want his/her job.
I found this book very tired and rather slow, uneventful and thoroughly predictable. Even in the last 5 minutes I hoped for a big shocker that never came. The ending was “meh” and didn’t really weave in the ends. I didn’t even feel the main romance, which is an absolute first for me in a JLA book!
The only positive I can say about it is there was a few fairly good steamy scenes in it. By far the weakest link in the chain, I wouldn’t recommend this series, but those who got this far will probably want to know the ending just like I did, so it will sell copies nonetheless.
I loved the being to this trilogy although a part of me hopes for spin offs or another book in a few years. The narrator is insanely good and I just love these books.
