Wicked: Resurrection (Wicked #5)
I don’t wish to give out any spoilers, from any of the three books, so I won’t go into deep details. However, I will say that Resurrection manages to keep you guessing until the end, throwing out new twists and characters just when you think you’ve managed to figure it all out.
Darkness and corruption is zeroing in on Amanda, Nicole and Holly, but with the right knowledge and by working together, only they (and Owen) can turn back the malicious Merlin from destroying the world and killing them. Yes, it may sound like ‘just another save-the-world’ kind of book, but if you read the series, starting with book one (very important for understanding and enjoying the series completely!), you’ll soon find out that it’s nothing like what you’d expect.
And to top it all off, besides the demons and magic and darkness, oh my!, Wicked: Resurrection has a nice dose of romance in it as well, between three separate couples. They may not have the perfect connection, and they all go through some really hard times, what with having ghosts from the past possess them and what not, but in the end, they stay together. And to me, that’s what makes a romance more believable– face it, none of us will ever have a relationship that doesn’t have a few problems along the way, speed bumps that make us wonder ‘Is it even worth it?’. But in the end, if you can survive the trip, the conclusion is well worth it.
5 STARS! Wicked: Resurrection is a stunning finale to a delicious fantasy series. I’ll definitely be recommending this to friends and family, and anyone else whom I think would enjoy the darker elements in the book.
