This is the third and final book in the Kricket series. I’m a little sad to see her go. I fell in love with a new character this book, a new side of the story. From start to finish, the flow was good; a slow gradual build to the end to a wrap up the series. There was a bit of everything in this one: friendship, romance, love, intimate moments, adventure, growth, betrayal, and stuff that goes boom. It was everything I expected from the series and more. The ending fit; now, looking back, I should have seen it coming. (Though, I personally wanted it to end differently.)
As a young adult series, it kept me reading. It is the only one this year; I’ve started many, but only Kricket and her world kept me interested. Anyone who knows me knows that is a ton of credit to the books. Not just the story, but the writing, and the storytelling. It’s all great.To be honest, I’m not ready for it to end. I want more. I'm going to miss these characters, and this world.

Romance, Sci-Fi, FantasyKyon Ensin finally has what he’s always wanted: possession of Kricket Hollowell, the priestess who foresees the future. Together, their combined power will be unrivaled. Kricket, however, doesn’t crave the crown of Ethar—she has an unbreakable desire to live life on her own terms, a life that she desperately wants to share with her love, Trey Allairis.
As conspiracies rage in the war for Ethar, Kricket’s so-called allies want to use her as a spy. Even those held closest cannot be trusted—including Astrid, her sister, and Giffen, a member of a mysterious order with a hidden agenda. But Kricket’s resolve will not allow her to be used as anyone’s pawn, even as the Brotherhood sharpens its plans to cut out her heart.
As the destiny prophesied by her mother approaches, Kricket will backtrack through her fiery future to reshape it. For she knows one thing above all else: the only person she can truly count on is herself.
