DESCRIPTION:

The Seers face their greatest challenge in the final chapter of the Order of the Seers trilogy…

When the fall of one nemesis unleashes an even greater danger into the world, Lilli, Joel and the Lost Seers must stand against a new enemy with the means and the will to destroy all of mankind, starting with those they hold most dear. 

As the Seers mobilize to confront this new evil, the Guild tries desperately to uphold the crumbling world order on which it depends. When their attempts to manage the crisis fail, the members of the Guild are forced to place themselves at the mercy of an unlikely ally. 

But the Guild isn’t the only one interested in maintaining control.

An agreement made in secret threatens to destroy any hope of a peaceful alliance before it can be made and as the betrayals unfold, no one is safe against a power that will stop at nothing to get what it wants. To defeat this threat and ensure the survival of the human race, the Seers must push the boundaries of their abilities beyond any limits they have known and risk crossing the line between life and death. 

How far would you go to protect what matters most?


MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

My review will probably be a bit vague because I don't want to give anything away.  I went into this hoping that the end of the trilogy would be just as good as the rest of the series.  I was not disappointed.  A bad ending to a series can ruin the whole thing for me.  I am sooo glad this one ended well :).

We still get to see the wonderful and fabulous characters from the first two.  Like, Alessandra, Lilli and her brother Liam and of course Joel.  There are some wonderful new characters as well.

This book was full of battles.  It was awesome.  After the Seers kill Crane creatures come out of the wood work and wreak havoc.  

The Seers and the Guild decide they are going to come together to combat the new evil that has been unleashed.  Of course everything isn't what it seems.  A back "room" deal was done before the meeting between the Guild and the Seers even meet.  

The action in this book is fantastic.  It seem to be non stop.  It kept me up because just when I thought the battle was won, there was more to come.  It was great.

There are even more developed powers being used in this book, and makes things more interesting.  I love the power the Seers have when they work together.  It's that great "good vs evil" story.  Good always prevails.  

All in all it was a great conclusion to a fantastic trilogy.  Now what I loved about this book was that there was hardly any language, and no descriptive sex.  It was great.  It was about the battle, and 
coming together!  It made me happy.  

Source:  I was given this book in return for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way for my review.  These are my PERSONAL thoughts on the book.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Cerece Rennie Murphy
pic and bio taken from Goodreads

My name is Cerece Rennie Murphy, but, among my 5 siblings, I am known and teased by my superhero name, Wonder Worry, (and yes, I am a little worried about your reaction to what I just said). While in my youth, I used my superpower to whip minor setbacks into epic tragedies in 60 seconds flat, I no longer have the time to hone the skills I once possessed, which were handed down to me VERY CAREFULLY by my mother and her mother before. 

Instead of spending my days imagining worst case scenarios, I am now on the front lines of true disaster prevention – treading the fine line between boo-boos and permanent brain damage, fighting crimes of curiosity, omission, absent-mindedness and sleep deprivation. I carry others down the winding, bumpy road of youth that starts out at the nexus of unique and brilliant but intersects with narcissistic serial killer at some distant point I hope fervently to avoid. As you might have guessed, I am a wife and mother of 2 small children. Luckily, my family lights up the sky so I never stumble too hard or lose my way.

I would lament the luxury of needless worry, but alas, I don’t have the energy. As I write this, I am losing a battle fought between my trusty sponge and a hardened glob of half-eaten cheese that traveled from the kitchen to the living room rug in the palm of a very small, but mischievous hand. Its stronghold on the fibers suggests occupancy of at least 2 days, but I’ll never know for sure. Rather than despair, I’ve chosen to retreat to my keyboard, noting that I have won the war - most of the rug is un-cheesed. 

Before I worried. Now, I write.
