The Wicked Within by Kelly Keaton

The Wicked WithinBlurb: Ancient lore leads to present danger in the final book in the dark and sexy paranormal romance trilogy about a descendent of Medusa, set in a richly reimagined New Orleans. Her fate is not set in stone.

Having temporarily defeated Athena, Ari races to break the gorgon curse that has plagued the women in her family for centuries. Her one lead sends her on a quest for the Hands of Zeus, an ancient relic last seen in the charge of New 2’s ruling elite, the Novem. But if there is one thing that Athena desires as much as revenge, it’s the Hands of Zeus—and Athena always gets what she wants.

My Thoughts: This is the final book of the trilogy. There was so much more detail and factors popping up in this book. The action was extreme, and not really in my taste. The climax was quite awesome. A lot of things were resolved, but there was also events in the character’s futures. I cried, and not for the reason I thought I would. I really liked that. However, after the climax everything seems rushed and had few details. Overall, I really enjoyed this trilogy.

My Thoughts: So much happens in this book! I had mixed feelings about some of the actions the characters took, but I decided to look at it differently. Fictional characters are people too (I know that sounds weird), who make mistakes and don’t think clearly. I liked the ending of this book, and look forward to reading the final novel!

My Thoughts: At first, I wasn’t so sure that I would enjoy this book. It reminded me of the Maximum Ride series in the beginning, and still does only slightly. I am liking the mystery behind everything, but I am glad some were answered before  the end of this novel. There was a big shocker, at least to me, in the end. There is a lot of Greek mythology in this book, which I have always found interesting.
