The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder and treason. Yeah, we've been busy. But now it's time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother's death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It's not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I'm heading for a final showdown that can--that will--change everything forever. A showdown I'm not sure I'm ready for.

But life never waits until you're ready.

this book was awesome, at first I was scared that faythe was going to choose jace over mark, and I'm glad with her decision... its sad that this series us over, but this book was one hell of a way for it to end, even uf I think there could've been one more book at least, it would be interesting to see how jace pans out as alph, and too see faythe and mark get married. and see the council after malones death...oh well wishful thinking there.

She says it's the last book but …

“He went down like a cheerleader after prom.”

Unfortunately while the series starting improving in the middle, it fell apart again at the end. I wanted to kill half the characters in this book myself, on both the good and bad side.

This book was supposed to be the wrap-up all the other stories was leading to - and we do get to see more internal power struggles with the annoying council I want to choke. There weren't really surprises with the decisions and outcome since it was already to us in previous books who would vote for whom. Even if the final book holds no surprises, there are some crucial events that happened - a few fights, Faythe actually loses a few things for a change, a major death, and of course an ending that I expected.

I don't care how good, bad, or average the storyline is - it was hampered a lot because Faythe was incredibly irritating. I've said in previous reviews that her smug attitude came across bitchy rather than heroic, and she does sometimes make things worse for herself.

I can understand her temper here, but the main issue I hold now is her constant whining about feeling lonely by her two men because they're keeping distance from her. Yeah, she feels bad about her betrayal and the 'luv triangle', but the author kept showing the character with a broken heart and moaning how much she needed someone. It even goes as far where she has to have conversations with her parents about it separately, then her brother, and anyone who would listen. I kept expecting one of them to finally say, well, what'd you expect??

It was beyond trashy for her to allow a kiss to happen in the room next to the alphas meeting when they all know what's been going on and the situation is already hostile, especially with the other half of the love triangle sitting outside. Her brushing it off as needing someone is never an excuse to act like that, I hold no sympathy with that scene.

Then there was the annoying problem where she kept thinking to herself that she can't choose, she can't lose them both - and we have to hear other characters randomly bring this up to her too. There is a major character death and he used dying advice to tell her how important it is to 'choose' her love triangle. Really? Really? It's not small potatoes but is the stupid decision elevated to that importance, for last dying words!?!

Sigh: “I want you. I want you so badly I can’t stand it. When you left, it felt like the world got darker. Like I couldn’t truly see anything. Couldn’t feel anything.”

It makes little sense to me she'd start having heartbreak and panic attacks before major war fights or in these emergencies because of her hormonal cravings. The end makes sense of her choice, I guess, but it's not surprising. All that build up was wasted, there was no point to this love triangle through the last books, except perhaps to irritate me.

It doesn't help that I no longer really feel romantic attachments to any of the characters. Their relationships are just kind of there but I'm not feeling it.

The major death was a sad blow since it was a favorite character of mine. I saw it coming a mile off and figured before picking this up that it would be the case, but it was still difficult. The author wrote the grieving scenes convincingly well and isn't the type who dismisses loss easily.

I was happy to see the Thunderbirds return for brief stints - they're fierce and vicious but the ending was awesome with their inclusion.

Overall I had too many issues to rate this book higher than 3 stars - the good rating was earned because of the wrap-up being well done for important plot points and decent battles, but there were plenty of problems to endure.

This was definitely one of my favorite series & I'm sad its over. But I would love to see a spinoff series featuring Jace! ( )

Faythe is having to deal with Jace and Marc as well as the council. Doesn't help when your dad gets voted down as head of the council, go to war expecting that it would be a surprise but they brought guns. Greg gets shot and Faythe is made Alpha. Malone learns of their plans and sets Faythe up to fall and she does - hard. This is an action packed wrap up to this series. I'll miss the series and look forward to seeing what Ms Vincent comes up with in the non-YA world. ( )

To everyone at MIRA Books whose unsung efforts behind the scenes helped make this, my debut series and first venture into publishing, the experience of a lifetime.

To all the friends I've made through my writing.

You've kept me sane—or at least convinced me that I'm not alone in my neuroses.

And finally, to all the Shifters readers who have stuck it out with Faythe and with me as we grew and learned. This has been an amazing journey, and I'm so thankful for everyone who traveled it with me. I'm not bowing out, but this is Faythe's last hurrah.

Thanks for helping me send her off in style….
