**Warning May Contain Spoilers From Previous Books In The Series**
Calla has always welcomed war.
But now that the final battle is upon her, there's more at stake than fighting. There's saving Ren, even if it incurs Shay's wrath. There's keeping Ansel safe, even if he's been branded a traitor. There's proving herself as the pack's alpha, facing unnamable horrors, and ridding the world of the Keepers' magic once and for all. And then there's deciding what to do when the war ends. If Calla makes it out alive, that is.
O.k I honestly don't know where to begin I loved the first two books in this series and when I got my copy of this book I was so excited, so I started reading it and then someone at work told me what happened and I simply did not want to continue but I did because I don't like to not finish books, of all the ways I imagined this series to end this was not it, I was so disappointed and to be honest I hated the ending and I kept putting the book down when I got towards the end because I didn't want it to end the way it did and I sort of figured if I never read the end it doesn't happen (wishful thinking I know).
And I find I'm not the only person who wasn't impressed by the end, don't get me wrong it wasn't all bad just the last quarter or so.
Ren comes to work with Calla, Shay, the pack and the searchers to take down the Guardians, cue fights and jealousy from the two Alpha's Ren and Shay over Calla.
Of course Calla doesn't know who to choose so she just strings them along so she doesn't jeapordise the mission, her theory is if she doesn't decide before then their heads will still be in the game.
Some people die, there are some adventures in gathering the different swords to make up the Scion's final weapon, some relationship hook-ups and a final big battle.
That's about the gist of it, it's really too depressing to even think about this book, I don't think I will ever re-read this book but at least it looks pretty on my bookshelf next to the other two books in the series.
I give this 3/5.
