    It's official. This series is one of my new favorites!! I'm so glad I stumbled upon it, thanks Goodreads! Each book is as suspenseful and action packed as the previous but it never gets tiring or repetitive like some books can.

    In the third and final installment, Eden is back home in Boston at Cyrus' compound along with Noah, Noah's parents, and Valeria. Noah and Eden are a hot item for sure, talk about sizzling, I loved it! Unfortunately Eden and October's friendship is left strained by the final events of Blood Past. This really saddened me but it kept it real, of course October would be mad at Eden. Cyrus is trying to find out who is causing unrest among the Neiths, causing them to rise against the Ankhs. Before he can do that Octobers family is taken by a group of soul eaters who are also out to take out Eden and her fellow Ankhs. This causes a reunion between October and Eden giving them a chance to hash it out. We also find out that Cyrus has kept something HUGE from Eden. So huge it causes a rift between Eden, Noah, and Cyrus. I can't say I blame her for being pissed at them. Though once again I understand where they are coming from but where is the loyalty?! Eden was left facing one final choice. A choice that would ultimately change how she looks at herself.

    This book was so suspenseful I seriously could not stop reading. My hubby kept trying to talk to me and he would either not get a response or when he was being exceptionally annoying he would receive a death glare. One thing I loved about this series that some may not like is the fact that once becoming Ankh Eden didn't have to deal with mundane everyday things, like school. I wish my life was like that, I don't go to school but it would be awesome to not have to go to work. The relationships were so well built that I could really feel the love the characters had for each other. When it was all said and done I shut the book feeling completely satisfied with how it ended. It's not often you can say that and I'm glad I found a series that gives me a feeling of closure. Seriously if you haven't yet you need to read these books!

    The Warriors of Ankh trilogy: by Samantha Young is intoxicating.

    The Warriors of Ankh trilogy: by Samantha Young is intoxicating.

    It took me two days, to read Blood Will Tell #1, Blood Past #2 and Shades of Blood #3. Samantha enriches you with the Warriors of Neith and the Warriors of Ankh. I was captivated with the characters and the journey she created for Eden and Noah. Every now and then you get a trilogy that lingers with you. There's something to say about a writer who can keep you turning the pages and have you engrossed with their characters. Will Eden give in to her predator side? Or will she become more powerful within?

    A YA Paranormal Romance everyone should read!

    Don't End This Series!

    I really, really hated to see this series end! I love the characters and want MORE! I think it would be absolutely wonderful to see Cyrus fall in love again, to see if Val and Darius find their way back to each other, see Jack fall in love...just so many possibilities! A lot of people want to see Eden dead in Shades of Blood, and they try darn hard to make it happen. Eden and Noah's relationship is strained. Eden has to find a way to let go of her anger and hate she holds toward Noah's ex-girlfriend, Romany, for killing her brother, Shellan. If Eden can't, Darius has to take her out to protect the Ankh. Therefore, Eden has to make a choice to either get past the hate, or die by the hands of Darius. This has been an absolutely great series! Now for the bad...what's up with the new covers? I'm not crazy about them at all. For one, they have no relevance to the books. I know the author, Samantha Young, was stoked about the new covers, and they are cool covers, but just not for this series.
