I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.
Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.
Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.My thoughts:
I was not looking forward to this book while at the same time I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Why? It is the series finalé! I love this series and don't want to see it end and at the same time want to know how it ends. *sigh* Talk about first world problems. :)
Okay, so I don't want to spoil a thing so I'll just say that this book delivers. You want action? Oh you get that in spades. You want to know about Logan and Gwen's relationship? Yes, you get answers as well as things left open (they are kids still, so it makes total sense). Let me just say that the series goes out with a bang and you get enough twists and nail biting experiences to satisfy.
I also have to say this... I don't often like series enders. Things get to wrapped up way too conveniently or not at all. The ending doesn't fit the series. It is like a series ender stumps the author. I felt NONE of that with this book. I was happy with the ending. It was satisfying and a bit bittersweet. My biggest complaint? No more visits to this world. No more great secondary characters. Guess I'll have to do a reread.
I give this book 5 stars. I enjoyed my final battles with Gwen and the gang and hope that Vic and Nyx get a novella all their own.
