A magical tale of family and magic... 

I finished this book at the beginning of March and I'm finally giving it the review that this book, this series and these Sister Author's so deserves. 

Merry would fight through covens, dark magic and shadow realms to get her brother back even if it rips a gateway, a point of intersection between their world and the shadow realm where Ronan resides. But Merry’s power is getting stronger, by breaking the boundaries she believes that it’s her fault. So this is what it has come to, the final battle between the original fairy-tale and those who want to control it once and for all. Will their finally be a happily ever after? Merry's family has transformed from Book 1 to this final book. There have been ups and downs, with Merry’s family oath, Leo’s kidnapping and then finishing it together as it always should have been. It brought pain, fear, tears but also moments of such joy, contentment and happiness and that’s what The Witch’s Kiss Trilogy is all about.

From start to finish, it’s doesn’t seem possible by how much these characters have grown in such a short amount of time considering it’s been 3 years for the reader and 6 months for Merry and Leo. Merry and Leo have been these focal points in time of the book, when one moves the other reacts - they are more alike that even they would know. Their feelings for each other as brother and sister is captivating and emotional to say the least. Merry literally breaks the fragment in time and put the world into tremendous danger to bring her brother back, if that's not sacrificial, brave and courageous, I don't know what is.  

The final battle was epic to say the least - It comes down to this book, this moment and it was magnificent. As story shapes up in The Witch's Kiss to the steady build up in The Witch's Tears, the final battle was everything a reader and the characters deserved. It reminds me of Charmed in the final episode where they brought together her past and present to save the future. In The Witch's Blood the final battle combines all of that defines the love, the unlikely friendships, and magical relations that have been discovered in this story. Kate and Liz create such vivid, intense and powerful descriptions, take this quote that I marked in this book, it just oozes realism and sends shivers down your spine. 

"...the world from which Merry had just returned - was bulging through the fracture like blood oozing from a wound." 

The Witch’s Kiss trilogy is right up there with Twilight and The Hunger Games. It’s a series that feeds on your fantasies, favourite fairy-tales, romance, realism and most of family! It’s addictive, joyous, compelling and one of my favourite series to date. I haven’t read a series like this in a long time. I’m sad it’s ended, but I’m excited by the prospect by how it’s ended too. 

Rating - 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
