Love is infinite.
Hate is absolute.
In the short span of a year, Silver has gone from becoming a Mage to discovering the truth about her unique genetics. Logan Cross went from her mortal enemy to her immortal lover, but a threat is fast approaching like an inevitable storm. Attacks are underway against the Mageri and one man is behind it—an elusive foe who is an unstoppable force. Nero is not Silver’s only concern as someone close to her is arrested for treason. In the midst of chaos, Silver discovers she cannot protect everyone from the wrath of fate, including her own Ghuardian.
Justus finally opens his heart, but an unexpected turn of events could darken his soul forever. Secrets are revealed that will leave you reeling from one twist after the next. Would you sacrifice everything for love?
Destiny has set sail and once she alters her course, no one’s life will ever be the same in this explosive conclusion to the Mageri Series.
REVIEW (Mild spoiler ahead):
As I finished this book, I took a moment to pause and think about how far we have come with Zoe/Silver. It has been quite the journey which has taken us to some difficult places but with creativity and imagination always.
The strength of this series is the storytelling and it is no different for this final installment of the Mageri series. I can tell that Dannika Dark is a romantic at heart. Every relationship that we have come to love is strengthened. The story is not always happy and there are some moments that my heart feels heavy, but this story does have a happily ever after. You will find all your favorites back: Logan, Justus, Paige, Simon, Christian, Finn, Sunny, Novis, Adam, and all the Cross brothers. In some ways, this is one of the weaknesses of the story. By bringing back all the characters from the previous stories, I am reminded that there is still so much to learn about, especially the Cross brothers. We are also introduced to a new, important character, but there is not enough of her to really get an attachment. Still others get a nice sense of closure - especially Silver, Justus, and Adam. To me, Adam's story has a nice resolution - one that left me satisfied (except for his interactions with Sadie. Please, Dannika, say there will be more to this story).
Dannika Dark's writing is very straightforward. There is little ambiguity and subtlety. It is both her strength and weakness. Her direct writing allows for a strong narrative. She knows the story she wants to tell and takes us along in the journey and it is a joy. However, sometimes that forthrightness has a scent of being preachy. It is not distracting to the storyline, but I wonder if the story could be a little more nuanced.
IN A NUTSHELL:
Dannika Dark shows her affection for her characters by giving them a wonderful story to end this series. What began as a buddy reads on Goodreads has reached a satisfying end. So happy to be a part of this journey.
