What can I say? WHAT CAN I SAY?!
This series is so many things. You will always find action, intrigue, conspiracies, secrets, and romance. You will always find yourself turning the pages eager to get to the end. You will fall in love with the characters and their world. You will care about what happens to some while you'll want to hurt others. You will always be surprised. You will always be left in awe. You will always feel.
The last book had all of the above and so much more. It is a book about the ultimate sacrifice and the purest love. In the end you will realize what you should have realized from the beginning... It has always been about the love shared between Alexa and Nelliana. Everything else was secondary.
Redemption ended just as it should have. It is sad to see these characters go but I appreciate the fact that the author ended it when she did. You will not be disappointed.
Once again I find myself really happy that I happened to come upon this series by chance. It must have been fate. ;-)
This is one series that should definitely be picked up by more folks. For those that wait until all the books come out before reading a series, now is your chance, because all the books are out. Jump on Amazon and get them...NOW!

I will sum this book up with one word and its brilliant. I don't even have the words to express just how much I loved this book and hate to see this series end although I will say the author ended it right. H.D. Gordon is such an amazing writer that I can't help but to gush at all her books. Her writing style is just so unique and like nothing out there. This series has always been one of my favorites because of the strong heroine she created in Alexa. The author also just knows how to tell a story with ease.
Alexa has grown so much throughout this series and I can't believe how strong she has become. She would to just about anything to keep her sister Nelly safe. I loved seeing her grown and stand up for herself and seeing her and Kayden together made my heart swell. They are just such the perfect couple and I loved everything about them together. They just had such a pure and sweet love even with all of Alexa's snark. I also loved how much Nelly has learned to not need Alexa so much for everything. She truly grew to be an amazing heroine too.
This book had me glued to it from the beginning. I couldn't wait to see how this story would end. I have to say that I had tears streaming down my face in parts of this book. This book took me on a serious emotional roller coaster ride from dealing with shock to disbelief in some parts and of course the sadness. The author really did a wonderful job of tying up this series though and left nothing out. It isn't often that I am truly happy with how an author decides to end a story but I was really satisfied with this one. It was everything I wanted and more. The author really is truly talented and I can't wait to see what she does next. I highly recommend this book as a must read that lovers of a truly amazing story, great friendships, action and romance. You will definitely not be disappointed with this book.

Writing this review is bittersweet. I absolutely fell in love with this series and the characters therein, but it came to a necessary end. You have to love a book that can punch you in the gut in the last chapter. It was not at all what I was expecting, but then, why read a book if you know exactly what's coming?
As I have said in all my reviews for this series, I love H.D. Gordon's writing. She has a way with words and is able to take this complex storyline with so much going on and make it smooth and beautiful. She has quite an imagination and brings it out well with her words.
It was difficult to watch Alexa go through this book. She was so very young and innocent in so many ways, yet had the weight of the world on her shoulders. Everyone looked to her to fix their problems, knowing what the outcome would be, while she struggled with her own inner turmoil. I loved Kayden all the more for being her rock and sticking with her even though he knew the most probable outcome.
The story overall is rather dark. It tells a tale of life and love and loss and asks the question, how much are you willing to sacrifice? For some, the answer is everything.

I Also Recommend:
You can't stop thinking about this book after finishing it. It takes awhile for it to resonate....
I am to close to this series so I really can't review it anymore. I work with H.D. Gordon but that started because I was her biggest fan, still am. But I am so close to the series now and I guess I shouldn't review it.
But I also purchased it so I should get to put in my two cents. So here it is....
The is no category or genre that we can properly box or label H.D. Gordon into, she simply is just a brilliant writer who creates the most amazing worlds I can escape to. Whatever the subject matter is I don't mind, as long as Gordon has dreamed it up, I am up for the adventure. Read The Alexa Montgomery Saga if you want an inspiring journey that will make you experience just about every emotion. I laughed (quite a bit), was outraged at our villain, I loved with the characters, and in turn loved them as well. I was completely disgusted and horrified when those were the appropriate situations. The twists and turns and pulse pounding action kept me reading into the wee hours of the morning and I was continually shocked and blindsided. Gordon's unique style of writing keeps the books' pacing where I felt like the ebook page turning feature wasn't turning the page fast enough. And oh boy did I cry with them and for them.
Every single one of H.D. Gordon's books shows her growth as a writer and the continued advancement of the mastery of her craft. I know she would disagree but this saga is a masterpiece. And it's Gordon's denial of that statement, that keeps her books getting better and better. This saga is a true piece of art and you can feel her passion in every word.
I really need more stars to rate her books.
So thank you H.D. for taking a chance and being brave enough to share your unique world with us, I loved every minute of the epic quest.
