Publisher's Summary

One minute I had the cuffs. I had magic. I could fight. The next...it was all gone.

The final semester at the Supernatural Academy should be about enjoying my last months of college. Instead, someone has poisoned the fae realm, killing tens of thousands and throwing those who survived to our doorstep.

And, worse, no one knows how or why. So, instead of late-night study sessions and crazy parties, my friends and I must track down the person responsible for these atrocities.

The one problem...I’m not who I used to be. I’m not even whole.

How can I help stop the world’s most nefarious criminal with no magic and part of myself missing? And how can I do it without losing myself entirely? 

You will love the final book in this hot magical academy series with kick-ass action, sizzling romance, and earth-shattering magic that will make you tingle in all the right places. Get it now.

Best in the Series!!

At the start of Senior Witch Spring Semester, things are in chaos. The Fae realm has been decimated by Ponomarenko, him having released some tar like substance that has not only killed all the life in the realm, but it has attacked the Fae as well and has either killed them, or made them severely ill. Hundreds of them litter the Academy grounds, and Charlie is unable to do anything, as she has lost her hand, and one of her cuffs, so her magic does not work. Disha, and the others, even senior students under Charlies guidance, try frantically to help, but it is a gruesome site.
This is just the opening scene in what is easily the best book in the series, because from here, it does not stop, it only picks up and goes harder and faster.
This book really reminded me of the final Harry Potter movies, when they were being chased by the gangs, or the final battle scene in the castle. There was this sheer desperation in all of the Main Characters, they knew this was it, that if they failed, it was over, people died, their loved ones died, parts of the world died.
And that is the kind of frantic, gritty and raw action that powers this story, as the main crew, Charlie, Disha, Rowan, Bridget, and at times even Dean McIntosh, Professor Fedorov, and Drew (Disha’s boyfriend), all run around, trying to work out what to do, knowing as they have at so many other points in this series, that it is really up to them, because at the end of the day, those in higher places have really dropped the ball.
It is not long though, before Human bodies start to turn up dead, mutilated, and with Fae runes on the body, saying that Death Horse would be taking a life for every Fae killed. The Scooby Gang, sent by Dean McIntosh, follow up, finding some clues.
The book has multiple story arcs, without trying to give anything away, from the start, and the blurb, there is the overall storyline of the Fae massacre and subsequent follow up into why he (Ponomarenko – that is just the best Villain name isn’t it??) would do it, what he plans to do next, what to do with the Fae, how to help them, can their realm be saved?
For there are thousands of homeless Fae now, in camps in woods, hiding in the City, trying to get food, some trying to pass as human and get jobs, there is a huge anti-Fae sentiment, and at the same time, these people are still sick, some still recovering from sickness and wounds from the attacks – there was not enough magic to heal them, and they ended up in Human hospitals, who had NO idea how to treat them, many died. The Fae have nowhere to go.
As well as this, there is Charlie’s storyline as well, about her hand, will she get it back? Can Nurse Taishi fix her? What does it mean for her, for her magic? Then of course, there is the missing cuff, will Ponomarenko come back for the other? Is she safe? Can she use just one cuff?
And of course there is the all-important question of this series…. Will Charlie and Rowan ever actually hook up?? Is she ready for that? Does Rowan actually want that?
Then of course, there are Charlies Friends, Disha and Bridget, because nothing is ever simple in Charlies life!!
Charlie is faced with some really difficult choices in this book, trying to work out where her magic actually comes from?
Is her magic within her? Is it channeled by the cuffs? Does she need the cuffs? Like is she able to do magic on her own, or is she actually really weak, and it is only the cuffs that have ever given her any power?
What is she without magic?
There are some really thought provoking, powerful and emotional questions in this book, ones that delve deep into Charlies character, it is so well done. But it doesn’t get lost in it, spending hours going over it (that would just be boring, we have evil warlocks to defeat, and a boyfriend to hook up with!!) Charlie is faced with several other challenges as well, her growing up and facing more mature aspects of her relationship with Rowan, and making sure that both of them are at the right place to take that next step, and that it won’t ruin their relationship, as they care for each other so much.
But most of all, Charlie is just terrified about the magic, and defeating Ponomarenko, otherwise, it might not just be the Fae who suffer.
This is easily, and by far, the best book in the series, there is just so much packed into the final book, and it is just so well written, so powerfully emotive, at times so real, so gritty, and at others, there is just full on action, with so much magic, that it makes Harry Potter look like a cheap magic show.
One of my favourite thins about this book, this series, is that the Authors have not been that worried about taking out Major Characters, and in this, the final book of the series, they hold true to that.
This is an exceptional series, one of the best in its genre I have ever read, easily, and if you love a good Magical Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Powerful, Character Driven Story, with just the best Characters you are going to read, you are in for a treat, and will NOT be disappointed!!
Kasi Hollowell is brilliant as the voice of Charlie Rivera, she has the perfect voice for it, with that very sweet, kind of cute voice that you would imagine Charlie having. When I think of Charlie, and how she sounds, Kasi Hollowell’s voice is what comes to mind, it was a really great match up. Hollowell is an excellent narrator, providing clear and concise Narration for all of the voices in the book, so you can easily understand everything. She is so easy to listen to, and does an outstanding job with each of the other voices, both male and female. Her Disha is iconic, just masterful, Bridget is just hilarious, she does her so well, and she has created a wonderful Rowan. As well as the main characters, she also narrates these exceptional Fae voices, from the different Fae Charlie meets around, to the Seelie Queen, and the Unseelie King, each with these glorious voices that are just beautiful, so well done.
Hollowell has done an exceptional Narrating job, making this a wonderful Audiobook series to listen to, highly recommended!!
