All have sacrificed, but one will sacrifice all…

Just when Olivia thought she’d finally have everything she always wanted, she was never closer to losing it all. Haden rocked Olivia’s foundation when he professed his love for her, and then turned himself in to the High Court. Although it was for the best, watching him walk out of her life was one of the hardest things she’d ever done.
Liam has always been the angel that holds her heart. But nothing will test the bonds of that love more than when a sick twist of fate brings all their lives crashing back together again.
Bitter enemies in love with the same woman, Liam and Haden must put their differences aside to battle an evil whose reach is far greater than either of them ever imagined. It will take all their strength to protect Olivia from an enemy that’s come to claim her and usher in a power-play to overthrow the High Court.
Love, sacrifice, and betrayal… It all comes to a heart-stopping conclusion in Braving the Darkness.

 

My Review

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’ll know that I absolutely love the Redemption series by Melynda Price (hello, love triangles and angels? So up my street) and that I’ve been waiting months for Braving the Darkness, the fourth and final book in the series to come out. Last night I got my ARC (huge thank you to Melynda Price and 5 Prince Publishing) and was so excited to start reading it! I was so nervous to find out how it would end. It’s so difficult to write this review without any spoilers but I’m going to try my best… Okay, let’s do this.

In this dazzling and long-awaited conclusion to the acclaimed Mortal Instruments series, Clary and her friends fight the greatest evil they have ever faced: Clary’s own brother.

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris – but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee – even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned…

Love will be sacrificed and lives lost in the terrible battle for the fate of the word in the thrilling final installment of the classic urban fantasy series The Mortal Instruments!

 

My Review

I’ve been waiting so long for the this book to come out and for The Mortal Instruments series to come to an end. I could hardly remember anymore what had happened at the end of the fifth book, but I knew that at the time I was completely obsessed with the series. This book took me two weeks to finish. TWO WEEKS. Admittedly, I’ve been quite busy and haven’t had much time, and it’s not that I disliked the book – it was just sooooo freaking boring. It felt like it went on forever, I was close to not finishing it sometimes… But I couldn’t do that – I needed to know how it all ended because I used to really like the series.

I’m sorry TMI fans 😦

She’s captured the hearts of Heaven and Hell…

Betrayed by her true love, Olivia cannot let go of the angel her mind doesn’t remember, and her heart refuses to forget. In an attempt to reclaim her broken life, she is determined to unearth her past, but some secrets are better left buried.

To save her life, he sacrificed everything. Universal Law was broken when Liam violated Olivia’s free will. His guardianship has been revoked, and the pain of letting her go is nothing compared to the torture of enduring their shattered bond. He can no longer sense her, no longer feel her, and the enemy he risked it all to save her from, now has free reign to claim her for his own. To get her back, Liam must turn away from all he is, all he was, for the one thing he may have already lost forever—Olivia’s love.

Haden will stop at nothing to possess Immanuel’s Stone, and locked away in Olivia’s memories is the key he needs to find it. But in his quest for vengeance, he never expected to lose his heart to the enchanting green-eyed beauty. Forced to choose between love and revenge, Haden becomes captivated by a woman who will never be his…or will she?

 

 

My Review

I’ve been so busy over the last couple of weeks with uni that I haven’t had any time to write or respond to any comments! I’ve finally got a bit of free time to write something, get back to people and catch up on some reading, but not as much as I’d like to! 🙂

I’m *so* happy that I continued to read the Redemption series and I can’t wait for the fourth and final instalment to come out later this year! I also wrote a review for Book 1 in the series “Until Darkness Comes” a few weeks ago that you can check out. In the second and third books, the story flows way smoother and is generally is strung much better than the first book – such an improvement! This review contains spoilers…
