OVERALL THOUGHTS: This is the fifth and final book in the Blood Destiny series and it certainly does not disappoint. Mackenzie or Mack is a fiery kick ass heroine who inspires loyalty in those around her. It has been a fun ride reading the first 4 books and the author, Helen Harper, did a good job tying up all the loose ends for her final installation.
SYNOPSIS: Life’s no fun being a dragon, especially when you are forced into responsibilities that involve trying to keep the peace between an array of shifters, mages and faeries in order to bring down the scariest and deadliest foe the Otherworld has ever seen. And that’s not to mention the fact that your own soul mate hates your guts…
Mack Smith, a fiery Draco Wyr, is battling to come to terms with her emotions, her heritage and her true capabilities. All she has to do is defeat Endor, win back Corrigan and live happily ever after. From the streets of London and Russia, to the beaches of Cornwall, will she be able to ever win the day?
THE LOWDOWN: The fifth book opens up where the fourth left off. Mack is broken-hearted because she is on the outs with her sexy shifter man, Corrigan. However, Mack has a job to do and the thing about Mack is that she gets shit done. There is a big nasty Endor, who is frightening enough that all the otherworld creatures have to work together to defeat him. The problem is shifters, mages, and faeries aren’t always copasetic. Mack has been tasked with getting them to work together. In the meantime she is loosing control of her body and her shifts. What’s up with that? I’ll leave that for you to discover in this fairly obvious but awesome turn of events. There are a lot of false leads, bedrails, revelations, and ass kickary. This book is sure to keep you on your toes. I pride myself on being able to reliably predict endings after reading so many books over the years, but I was a little surprised in the direction the author took. Over all, a fun story and a great ending to an entertaining series.
Final Thoughts: A fun book that does not disappoint. Read the whole series and add a new heroine to your list of awesome fictional role models.
