Description: Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.  Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late? 

I Give This ...

I always meant to buy this because I really did love the first two in the series.  But, I was holding out in hopes that the local library would one day get the series.  They finally did and I quickly put in my hold.

Sophie has a lot to deal with at the beginning of this novel.  Her powers have been stripped.  Her father and Cal may not have survived.  She has no idea were Archer is.  And, she may or may not be in the hands of her worst enemy.  Turns out the Brannicks aren't as bad as everyone thinks.  And Sophie might just get her happy ending, or something similar.

This is a hard book to review without giving away spoilers.  Just know that I enjoyed it almost as I enjoyed the rest of the series.  I loved how the series ends at Hex Hal just like it began there.  I did feel we get cheated out of a confrontation just a little bit, but the story ends nicely.  Our characters are all here, doing exactly the things that I originally like about them 

I haven't decided if I am going to read the spin off series yet.  I might wait and see how the first reviews turn out.
