RESURRECTION is the best book of the series. So full of surprises. It makes me sad that some who deserved life are now dead, so much is now lost. The inner conflict in each character makes them very realistic. Some heroes, in order to defeat their enemies, do horrible things; some villains, from time to time, do noble things and fight for a good cause in the end. The thing I like the most about this book, and of the series in general, is, not the magic itself, but the situations the heroes are placed in. Whenever someone decides to be stubborn and selfish, or makes mistakes ,lives are lost. Whenever a heroine, or hero, wants to save a loved one she/he has to sacrifice a lot. RESURRECTION totally exceded my espectations, it was worth the wait. Whether you are a loyal fan, or whether you are looking for something good to read this summer, you should defenitely read WICKED RESURRECTION.

I read all the other books a few years back and enjoyed them but they were never my favorites. I always thought that they way it ended was horrible but never heard anything about another book. So when this one came out I got very excited and had to buy it. It was hard to get started at first but not too far in and I couldn't put it down. I love this book and I thought the ending was amazing. I looked that Holly finally ended up with Jer. I was upset about some of the people who died though. Overall I think this book is my favorite of the series. It is now one of my favorite series all together.

The wait is over for me to read this book 6 long years after reading the others before this. I can't say I'm not glad that the story is finally finished, but now after reading it, I am sort of disappointed as to how the story and the plot unraveled and where they had led to. I'd imagined something more after all the chaos and climactic actions in the forth book but to me, nothing much more happened in this finale. I wasn't frightened for the characters,wasn't at the edge of my seat hoping everyone would end up okay. I'm sorry to say that the authors did not make me relate to the characters and feel the emotions that they were dealt with or the tragic events that they had to fight. I loved this series and had hoped for a great battle in this last book but sadly I felt it was lackluster than the rest. Thanks to the authors for finally finishing this series. I read it because I love books and I wanted to know what the ending had in store for my favourite characters no matter if it was good or bad. Because books take me to a whole different world and it just wouldn't be the same if I had made up my own story or ending of my characters. So to the fans of this series, read it to fulfill your curiousity and because you want to be taken to where your characters are and for closure to the story because that's what it was for me.

Ever since I read Wicked two years ago, I've been a fan of this series. It may not be every one's cup of tea, and the magic in these books are nothing like Harry Potter, quiet the opposite in fact, filled with darkness and evil, and you never quiet know which side everyone is on....But that's one of the things I enjoy so much about this series.And Wicked: Resurrection was anything but a disappoint, a fitting conclusion to the series. After having the last two books leaving you hanging, wanting more, Holder and Viguie finally managed to wrap it all up nicely, leaving the reader satisfied. It may not have the traditional HEA (happily ever after), but this HEA matches the story and characters, and that's all that really matters, right? 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 very 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. 4.5 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.

This one is kind of difficult to review there were parts I enjoyed and other were okay. There is an ending to this series and it is definatley here. Many battles fought and one.

I read the first four books in this series and just thought they were okay. I tend to be pretty easygoing and not easily disappointed with a series, so when I finally got to read the last book I was very disappointed to feel unfulfilled with the last part of the story and the ending. It seemed to me like the authors just pulled the ending out of their rear-ends and prayed it would work and be enough to satisfy the readers. Clearly it didn't satisfy me. But I will say that I was slightly pleased with one aspect of the ending.

I was worried how it would end when the last book ended with everyone in chaos, but the ending of this book is perfect! I'm so glad jer and holly finally end up together! Just perfect!

Resurrection ends the Wicked series with a bang. Alex Carruthers is leading the coven to kill off the remaining members of the evil coven, with Holly in tow. Nicole and her family discover she is the heiress to the Moore mansion and fortune. The main question throughout the book is will they find each other again and will they finally defeat evil. A satisfying ending to a good series.

I love this series. I have it on both my nook and paperback. It left me wanting more but also being satisfied with what i had. My tots fav characters are Nikole and Jer. They had their trouble but in the end they were both wonderful. Hope this helped. Sincerly, T.
