Despite inciting their families' wrath and putting themselves in grave danger, rival clan leaders Rosa Alcantara and Alessandro Carnevare refuse to give up on their love for each other. But when the young couple suffers a deadly attack from an unknown enemy, it soon becomes clear their strong feelings can't keep the past from haunting them. On the run from their adversaries and searching for answers, Rosa and Alessandro begin to unravel the secret behind the conspiracy to keep them apart: an ancient prophecy that predicted the destruction of all Arcadia if the two rival dynasties ever married and bore children. And now, they must outrun those who think they're better off dead.
With Arcadian assassins trying to kill them at every turn, a group of hybrid beasts thirsty for their blood, and the ruler of all Arcadia desperate to find them, Rosa and Alessandro must find out the truth behind Arcadia once and for all. But will it be the key to unlocking their freedom and future together, or the final step in bringing them to their knees?

I’m always sad when series ends. And this one I’m sad to see go. I think the way the series progressed and the how it ended was good. Plot: This plot follows what has been happening since the first book. The clan’s are gearing up and choosing sides for a war. People are betraying people and others are dying. I think this plot is full of excitement and really doesn’t stray the reader. If anything, the reader is captivated by all the fighting, the non-stop drama and SECRETS! Family Secrets: Okay, this part I was the most excited about. I have read so much about Rose’s life that when things were FINALLY coming to light it was like,”OMG!” The author made it easy for the reader to piece together all the info and for me, it gave me a huge adrenaline rush. Ending: The ending is great! It did go down a road I certainly didn’t expect but it didn’t push me away either. In fact, I felt more intrigued once things started to look clear. I like that it went back in history. The reader has a chance to travel the world and visit unique places and most importantly, go back to where it all started. This is great ending to an awesome series. I have never read one like this series before and I’m honored that I and a chance to read it and enjoy it. Answering all my questions and ending brilliantly, Arcadia Falls is great!
