Book Summary:
Just as Harper Price starts coming to terms with her role as David Stark’s battle-ready Paladin, protector, and girlfriend—her world goes crazy all over again.

Overwhelmed by his Oracle powers, David flees Pine Grove and starts turning teenage girls into Paladins—and these young ladies seem to think that Harper is the enemy David needs protecting from.  Ordinarily, Harper would be able to fight off any Paladin who comes her way, but her powers have been dwindling since David left town…which means her life is on the line yet again.

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the fun once again in the finale of this pitch-perfect romantic paranormal comedy series.

Shannon's Thoughts:
Overall I've really enjoyed this series.  Much more than I expected to.  The very beginning was a little suspect, but about half way through the first book I saw what Rachel Hawkins was up to and sat back and enjoyed the ride.  I just really like her irreverent humor.  But this book just didn't quite capture the fun the other two books had.  It was darker and definitely mopier.  I wouldn't say I was disappointed per se, but I do miss the lighter parts of the earlier books.

David has run off, being driven mad by his visions and creating more oracles who apparently have it out for Harper and want to kill her.  I wasn't quite sure why he was doing this, but sure.  Harper mopes through most of the book with David being gone until she gets a clue to his whereabouts and what he is up to.  Blythe, Harper's frenemy, comes a long to help.  That part was fun and Blythe gets redemption at the end.  But it is all slightly predictable and things always work out a little TOO easy for Harper to succeed. The ending is a little forced, but ultimately bittersweet and hopeful.

Books in the Series:
1. Rebel Belle
2. Miss Mayhem
3. Lady Renegades

  1. I have to say, this ending didn't totally make me want to throw the book across the room, which is great! I closed it with a smile and happy tears stinging my eyes because it was just too cute. Book kept me entertained throughout! Loved it!
